Re: Production Boats and the Limits

That's what those side settees are for. Not for letting laundry pile up. It's not like you and the mate are going to be sharing the queen bunk while making way; you'll be taking watches in turn. ;)

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Mostly that says that the asking price ain't necessarily the selling price. Everybody's seen a lot of boats out there that are priced at 50-75% more than others that are directly comparable, for the...

Re: parrot heads

Jim and Deb Faughn's blog indicated that cruising with their parrot was pretty much not worth the trouble to any foreign port. Bahamas, for example, wanted them to get an animal import and export...

Re: Needed: Customs & Immigration 101

Nope. The worst you might do is be coming there to kidnap citizens and sell them into a life of sexual slavery, murdering all who get in your way. The way to convince people that that isn't what...

Re: Needed: Customs & Immigration 101

In principle, I agree totally, though. The ways in which Customs agents and their associated coast guards can make you life...

Re: Just Go!

That's a kind of the telling point: "Go now!" is great advice for someone that's got a boat and $20,000 handy. Or $40,000 and no boat, even. But the people that fit that criteria are very few until...

Re: Ship to take me and my dog from west coast to Hawaii

The hold's a little dark but it's pressurized and the temperature is controlled just like the cabin. Not necessarily to the same setting; some have equipment that needs cooling so the hold stays no...

Re: Just Go!

Just remember, the amount of stuff that can fail and make a journey too risky to take until it's fixed is about the same on a simple boat as it is on a complicated, luxurious one. The extra stuff...

Also on a plan. This year is certifications for me. Last year was research and determining if I really thought this was a direction I wanted to take my life. One sailing center joined. Courses lined...

Re: Cal 27 deal of the century or total lemon...

Moyer Marine's got the A4 pretty well covered. I'd be more worried about getting parts for a 25-year-old Volvo than an A4.

Re: Cal 27 deal of the century or total lemon...

13' wide slip means it's okay for that Cal 27, and probably up to about a 33' Hunter, but probably not for something that's actually 36 feet. Those would probably have only a couple of inches each...

Re: Cal 27 deal of the century or total lemon...

Bremerton's marina is VERY bargain-oriented. A while back, they were offering two year's mooring for the price of one year, if paid up front. That same $3000 will get you 4-6 months of mooring in...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Depends on the boat, obviously. Single engine cats are often powered by a long drive leg or extra-long outboard that turns with rudders. Twin engine cats obviously end up being able to apply power...

Re: Cost of slips in south or east SF Bay area

$600-800 a month with liveaboard premium are pretty usual for what I've seen, but the bigger hassle is the several-years-long waiting list for liveaboard permits, and each marina maintains their own....

Re: Gemini 105MC for charter?

BVI's probably your best bet. $3000/wk seems to be about the going rate. I know catamarans.com has a charter search that allows you to find by model of boat, so that might be a place to start.

OTOH, I imagine that'll last exactly as long as it takes for someone to get mad at him and phone calls start going out. I know what the FAA's definition of "commercial operation" is, and I can't...

Not aboard yet, but my employment fits the lifestyle -- I'm an ETL Architect. Or, more colloquially, a data plumber. I hook disparate databases together, pretty much "by any means necessary". Like...
