Re: 16 Months at adrift at Sea

I wonder who originally said it was 16 or 13 months? I'm not sure you could reasonably track time accurately being alone in a boat after several months. I suppose you could scratch a line in a piece...

Re: Two sailors rescued in Puget Sound

I treated someone with hypothermia on an early spring backpacking trip. He slipped on a snow bank and ended up in a deep puddle of melted snow water.

We pitched a tent in the sun, rolled out a...

Two years ago we rented a small boat with a captain to take us to some places on a reef south of the Grand Bahama. Our snorkeling gear includes a...

Re: Phones Apps

I would opt for an iPad for a few reasons:

Superior build quality
Damage resistant
Easier on the eyes
More forgiving UI
Solid user/refurbished market
AppleCare Plus

Re: Would you rather own a sailboat or a RV?

Well, by remote - in this case - you mean a paved road. Or a very well maintained dirt or gravel road. Neither of those mean remote.

On a related note the most 'remote' one can get in the...

Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About

I've read a half meter is the maximum length - so nothing deeper than two feet. It has to do with the water pressure and CO2 in snorkel. You cannot exhale with enough force to blow the CO2 out before...

Re: St. Martin June 8 - 19 - looking to meet cruisers

Zanshin,

Re: Someone's giving me an Islander 24'

Well, I don't own a boat - I've only sailed the J22's at my local sailing club. And before I take anything free or buy anything I wonder about how I'm going to unload it when I'm done with it.

But...

Re: Bahama Live Aboard Marinas

Port Lucaya on the Grand Bahama has liveaboard slips with cable TV hook-ups. I'm not sure if that includes Internet but I'd be surprised if it did not. It's not a particularly bad place but I won't...
