Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

Re: Splashing tomorrow

I'm not sure what everyone else does but a few guys at the dock told me to have one really long line to someone at the dock if possible. I've done that every time and once it came in really handy.

Re: Good sailing related doctumentary

Yeah it sounds like Worsley knew it was a terrible idea in the first place given the conditions but went anyway following Shackleton's orders. Amazing they all survived. I definitely would not want...

Cane Garden Bay and Trellis both sound great although since we pick up the boat at Hodges Creek Trellis would be much closer. Another question...How do you check your weather when you are there? I...

Re: Ideas and/or guidance

I definitely realize that boating there is a completely different animal than an inland reservoir or even the BVI or San Diego Bay where we have sailed. I've spent quite a bit of time on Whidbey...

Blackfish Al

I did a daysail in Victoria with Blackfish Al. It was an awesome experience and I found out he is a CYA instructor as well. Might be worth giving him a call since he's in your area.

A new diesel if needed will be 7-10K? Is that just for a volvo, meaning would a yanmar, westerbeke, etc be any cheaper?
