Re: $3000/mo cruising budget

Don, you are continually putting down the experience of people who are actually doing what you say you want to do. Has it occurred to you that there are places where it is impossible (or nearly so)...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

People are talking about provisioning as if it were one thing. Every place you go it is a different set of parameters - what is available, what are costs like, are there new things for sale that you...

Re: Welland Canal down bound advice

Mike, couple of things just occurred to me, one in the duh! category. You will be going into full locks of course so the attendant will just pass you the lines. You just pull up reasonably close to...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

UP, I have been sailing for 40+ years and have done tens of thousands of offshore miles and I would never pretend to know as much about long distance passage making as you profess to. One of the most...

Interesting little video

This was in the Newsfeeds and I think many people have this blocked. It is worth eight minutes of your time.

Re: Navigating the Reefs of Andros

Something else to consider is that different e-chart makers have licensed proprietary data. Don't know if it has changed now, but Garmin had licensed the Explorer Charts data for the Bahamas which is...

Re: windscoop

It has to be a couple of inches longer on each end than the width of the hatch you will be using it in. The idea is you hoist the scoop with a halyard until the dowel jams in place. You want to the...

Re: C & S 27 - In hull transducer

Not sure about C&C but with Hinterhoeller boats it is pretty easy to see where the core stops since there is a distinctive step down in areas that are solid glass.

Re: Maintaining an outboard

Re: Vang line slipping in cleat

The new line is likely slipperier than the old one which is the immediate problem. The other problem could be with the cleat itself. There are springs under the cams and they may not be as robust as...

Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

A Danforth is probably about the worst since it has so much surface area for the weight. Beyond the anchor, a really important consideration is the technique. You want to not be moving at all so the...

Re: Case Study in Surviving a Cat 1 Tropical Cyclone

Do they get cyclones at that latitude (8įN)? I doubt very much it was a cyclone but that is not to say that it was not very windy. Also cyclones last a lot longer than a few hours.

Did you try to...

Re: Health Insurance While Cruising

I think if you keep searching you should find several discussions on this topic. Most people who are cruising self insure since the cost of healthcare in most countries is quite reasonable. Generally...

Re: What do cruisers do?

It just occurred to me to quote an example. The most relaxed place I can ever remember was in Mangareva in the Gambier Islands of French Polynesia. We were there for three or four weeks and did...

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon

Mike if you can get the right size and afford the extra cost, the aluminum tanks are very nice.

Re: Canadian Credit cards to travel with

I think Scotiabank is quite a bit bigger in the south. Once you are out of the Caribbean it does not matter. I find it mildly astonishing that I can go to an ATM in Vanuatu or Lesotho and it will...

Re: Canadian Credit cards to travel with

We typically used local currencies, but in most places where travellers go you can use smaller US bills as well. There can be problem when you get to a new country and have not found the ATM (it may...

Re: Canadian Credit cards to travel with

Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon
