We moved from Lake Texoma a month ago to St. Petersburg Florida and are planning on cruising down the Keys and possibly over to the Bahamas this winter. No clear plans except to follow the wind and...

using the chart plotter

This may be a really stupid question. I'm looking at upgrading the electronics on my boat before we start cruising. We have an old chart plotter at the helm now. If I get a good PC based chart...

Boat security

We're hoping to head out cruising this fall (after hurricanes pass). We were out on our boat this weekend, and I was thinking about security that might be needed in some parts of the world.

Eryka

Tell us more about your wintering in the Bahamas. That's exactly what we hope to do next winter. Where do you summer? We're thinking Charleston or maybe somewhere in Chesapeake Bay area. ...

I've got the survey and sea trial set up, have a couple quotes on insurance, think that financing is set up, so we seem to be on a course that has a lot of momentum. One of the insurance quote...

The more I go with this, the more there is to think of. I hadn't thought about zincs not being used on fresh water so you're right I'd have to look into that.

This is going to be the start of a...

Thanks for all the replies. Time won't be a big factor as once we leave, we're gone with no set time lines except as dictated by weather. If mast stepping is commonly done on both ends of the...

De-stepping the mast?

We're looking at possibly buying a boat that's now on Lake Erie. We plan to sail mostly on the East coast, Bahamas and eventually the Caribbean. The question is how to best get her to the Southeast...

ICW vs Offshore

I have not sailed on the east coast at all yet - but wonder why more people don't just sail down the coast instead of down the ICW with all it's bridges and low areas. Staying within a couple miles...

Thanks for all the encouragement. The next time we go out, we'll definitely practice reefing.

Part of the reason we were only going about 3 kts was due to trying to get around a fisherman. I...

Why would you want to haul your boat through Nebraska (NE)? We Huskers enjoy boating, but it's a long way from New England (don't know what abbreviation the post office uses for that??):)
