Re: Sailing the Bahamas

And they sell Capt. Morgan at most of the liquor stores. And I suspect that the movies they show at the Treasure Cay Golf Cart Drive In Movie Parking Lot are pirated - but I have no evidence.

Re: Unleashing Womens Potential in Blue Water Sailing

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

As noted by capt.aaron earlier in this thread, there's plenty of room to anchor out in Key West - also lots of boats are anchored in Marathon.

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

The thing about Boot Key Harbor is, it's in Marathon. Having spent the past six weeks here in Marathon, I think I am qualified to say: You'd rather be in Key West. OK, let's say MOST PEOPLE would...

Re: Lets see your boat pets

Re: Lets see your boat pets

Isabel's "swim" was in the Chesapeake - we didn't rinse her off but towel-dried her as much as she would let us. Later, Percy took a "swim" in the Sea of Abaco. I locked us both into one of the...

Home is where the cats are

Great question! And what if you have THREE cats? (See pics of the crew below.) Short answer is: live on a cat, which has space for the cats. Longer answer: follow this link for a blog post about...

Re: Dog to the Bahamas

I've had the pet permit take up to 8 weeks - plan ahead! I've always had a health certificate from a US vet, dated within a few weeks of arrival. Customs and immigration came aboard in Treasure...

Re: Newbies sailing south on the ICW

Hardly any place to sail on the ICW - motoring all day long, sometimes in circles waiting for bridges to open, sometimes rushing to make an anchorage before nightfall. ICW sucks for sailors. IMHO,...

Advice Required on Deck Footwear

I'll add a vote for sneakers - maybe two pair JUST IN CASE. Extra socks - wool or fleece.

Liveaboard in Key West?

Re: What to take to sailing school?

My favorite piece of clothing for cold weather sailing was a long-sleeved, snug, thin fleece "undershirt." Never took it off for days on end. And I will echo the call for extra socks. Wool or...

Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

I LOVE Key West. That being said, I think if I were going to live in the Keys I would give Marathon a try - active cruisers' community, moorings (cheaper), and a great location (far enough south to...

Re: How do you swab your fiberglass deck?

I like your idea of using baking soda - thanks, I'll give that a try. We're starting to think that a good waxing is what we need, in order to minimize the dirt that sticks in the first place. What...
