Re: Hard time finding crew opportunities

Just curious, what is it exactly that you think you are going to learn that you can't on your own boat? Is it an income issue, that holds you to your current locale? I know people who think this is...

Re: looking for advice btb

If your going to spend any more time than say 2-3 day trips, I would go for 30+. Sure we've met and read of people that have cruised in 25-28 footers. But, it's camping at best. We cruised on a 28...

Re: Where do you mount your chart plotter?

IMHO it also depends on the size of your boat :-). On our 28 footer having the plotter mounted under dodger works because its a small cockpit.

On our 37 footer that's way to far from the helm. ...

Re: Any issues carrying windlass on plane to DR?

Re: How long to reasonably get from Georgetown to P.R.

great advice... I've given it plenty of times to others.

But I never said I had a strict schedule to follow. Just, simply, if I follow that route how far could I 'reasonably' get in 4-5 weeks?

Re: How long to reasonably get from Georgetown to P.R.

Thanks for the info... but the question wasn't so much about whether I should go as to how far in a 4 week period could I reasonably accomplish.

Re: Sewing machine corner

Just an update:

Bought an lz1 sail rite. Every blog I've read said essentially the same thing. So I caved.

state lettering required?

We live in New England, the boat we just purchased is in Maryland on the hard, and we are going to splash in about a month.

We are going to use the boat in winters in the bahamas, and farther.
