Marathon boot key mooring field filled up in dec and waits of 20 days are common.

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

If the marina has had multiple box fires I would be calling the fire marshal pronto. The marina is too cheap to do anything about the issue. Dumbest thing to do is nothing

Re: Portable Generator

No indication as to the size of the charger. I can just barely run 2 40 amp chargers at full load. The honda is NOT 2000 watts, it is about 1400 if you get a good one.

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Your concern over being a woman should be much less than your concern over singlehanding. Do your research in that area. Not impossible at all but it is tricky when you have no deck hand to help drop...

Re: mooring / dockspace in Annapolis

Re: Day Docking / Mooring in Annapolis

Short term pick up can be done down ego alley assuming there is room. Call harbormaster to verify, they may have other options.

Re: Overnight Anchoring

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

3 jerry jugs of fuel is about 75 lbs. On my 32,500 lb boat that makes a BIG difference, eh?

I'd rather have the fuel and not need it than the other way around.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Very little good? Like being able to refuel and keep going rather than sit out in the ocean waiting and waiting for wind?

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Additional bonus for hitting Port Washington...very close to LIRR into NYC or Laguardia airport. You could leave the boat on a mooring there and fly in and out with relative ease.
