Re: What would happen?

Don't forget to get rid of your cell phone. They have GPS tracking devices that let the Feds know exactly where you are. No internet either.

Re: Entry level AIS?

I have the Standard Horizon Matrix with AIS. It is a receiver only and I am able to get the information just the same as a transponder. A friend of mine has the same unit connected to his Raymarine...

Re: Should I learn the sextant?

My over the horizon sailing experience has been limited to one trip to the Dry Tortugas and back and several trips to and through the Bahamas. Several years ago I learned how to use a sextant and how...

Re: Bahama traffic

I spoke to a delivery captain this winter and he said he fuels up in the Bahamas because he is not required to clear in with customs and pay the $300. But I think it is always a foolish move to seek...

Re: Active Captain question

I certainly inferred that he, Smack, was recommending staying clear of Active Captain. Otherwise there was no reason for Smack's post. While I understand that you may not want to rehash the issue of...

Re: Active Captain question

Smack, it's a little unfair to expect anyone else to steer clear of Active Captain because of the vague charge he is "bad news". Many people find the information on Active Captain extremely...

Re: What stops Americans cruising the world?

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

The O/P it seems to me is looking to move his land base from near Lake Michigan to a warmer climate which will allow him to sail 12 months a year. I think if he wanted a summer venue and a winter...
