Re: iPad 4 as a GPS ?

IPad draws 2.4 amps. Most USB 12 volt chargers are 2.1 amps. Sooner or later it dies.

Sailboat charter in Puerto Plata?

I'll be spending a few days in PoP at the end of January. I'd like to charter a boat for a day. I'm not looking for a catamaran booze cruise, just a day on the water with the wife.

Anyone know...

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

There are many times when I enjoy the solitude of single handing, but I also enjoy teaching newbies. I try to determine their expectations before we leave the dock. If they just want to sit and...

Re: C&C 33 mk1 vs 34 vs Landfall 35

Raced my C&C 35/3 from Annapolis to bermuda. The 34 is similar, the Landfall is the cruising line. Lots of LF38s, the 35 is fairly rare. I'd sail a C&C almost anywhere, and get there a lot faster...
