How to tie up to a mooring

I think the best way to tie off to a mooring line is to run a dock line through it and cleat off each end at the bow. Or you could tie off one end of the dock line, run the other end through the...

Florida bound...need ideas soon

Probably the best place to look for a boat in Florida is the Ft. Lauderdale area. The canals are full of boats of all kinds, and there are a lot of canals.

Celestial Navigation? Forget it!

To say that CN is expensive and difficult to learn is ridiculous! I bought a decent plastic sextant and learned it while doing a delivery from the V.I. to Florida years ago.

Starting the process

With so many boats for sale out there, why go through a broker???

Interesting. I didn''t realize that properly constructed cold molded wood was stronger than steel.

So, if I was intending to sail in the southern ocean, where the icebergs lurk, stell would be a...

Shortening Keels

In a recent sailing magazine I saw an article on this very subject. There''s a nice photo of the boat''s owner who has just sawed the bottom off his lead keel with a circular saw.

foreign currency account

I used to work for a very wealthy American boat owner who kept an offshore account with Barclays Bank. You will find them everywhere in the Caribbean. They probably have branches in the USA as well.

Chocks?

sailboater....

I used to have a similar (bow up) problem when I sailed a 17'' aluminum canoe by myself. To fix the problem I placed a large rock up in the bow on the floor. It worked just fine.
