Re: Google Earth?

I also use it to orient myself with an anchorage or harbor. It helps you get a visual feel for the place. Not that we don't use charts but it's another aid to help you out.

Re: What's your cruising speed

Our boat motors at about 2000 rpm in flat seas doing 5.5-6 kts for a 36 footer with 3gm yanmar. I would think a 30 footer would do about 4.5-5 kts in flat seas.
