Re: Heading out tonight for Colon, Panama

I use an agent named Pete Stevens at Delifino Maratimo for Panama Canal transits. He takes care of customs, admeasurement, and transit papers, and then asks when I want to transit. He saves me a lot...

Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

I chose my my boat, a C&C 40, for cruising because I like to sail...really love to sail. I mean, I'm passionate about it; I can get off a two-week delivery and clean the boat up in a rush so I can...

Re: Professional Liability Insurance for delivery or hiring crews

Re: Professional Liability Insurance for delivery or hiring crews

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That's it! You're up!

Sidi Bou Said is the third stop north of Carthage. That pathway winds a mile or so down cliff from Sidi. The only reason we made the trek was the two college girls who'd...

Re: Professional Liability Insurance for delivery or hiring crews

Having just read through the policy for my own boat, I notice there are provisions for hiring delivery skippers. It's a pretty common extra.
