Re: Tender choice - 8 or ten foot

A lot more stable getting in and out with the tubes. The 10 footer gives you more room to maneuver once your in the dink. With the 8', it going to be tight with 2 adults and a large dog. Especially...

Re: Marinas in Texas

The main reason I suggested Galveston is it's a good start point for weekend trips in open water. If you just want to daysail, then Clear Lake is the better choice.

Re: Captain and Crew Needed, Fire Island Inlet to Norfolk then ICW to FL

It would probably help if you would say whether you want to stay on the ICW from Norfolk (as your title suggests), or are open to going outside,weather permitting. Makes a difference in the amount of...

Re: How far south?

Jan-Mar, Florida. Apr-May, NC.

For NC, starting from Oriental, you can do a loop, then head out to Beaufort for some open water.

For FL, start from either Biscayne Bay or Tampa Bay.

Re: Waterway Guide Beats Active Captain

Thing is, why worry which is "best"? Use the one you're most comfortable with, then use the other and other others, to see if there's any additional info.

Re: Waterway Guide Beats Active Captain

I knew about Indian Key from the print version of WG. That and Skipper Bob's (print) were my main info sources on anchorages and marinas. I only looked online for further info, especially on...

Re: Active Captain vs. Waterway Guide

It's about using what works. When I'm actively cruising, I use multiple sources, print as well as digital. If I had to choose to use one and only one, then it would matter which one is "best".

Re: Active Captain vs. Waterway Guide

I use what ever gives me the info I need. Since there's no options other than one or the other, I didn't vote.

Re: Crew change in Norfolk VA ?

Not sure what the best marina would be, but a lot of folks anchor at Hospital Point, which is just north of Tidewater Marina.

Assuming you're waiting on a weather window to head outside, if it's...

Took us three days (arriving midnight) to Tampa Bay from Destin. Had enough wind to raise the sails for a grand total of three hours (early May). Took me two day runs, and an overnight from Maderia...

Re: Best Place to Start a Sailing Blog for Cruising

If you just want text, simply make up a group email list. If you want to add graphics, then go with a blog, unless all your friends and family are facebook users already.

Re: Missed and not missed

The only thing I really miss, and that's only occasionally, is a bathtub for a long hot soak.

Re: Marinas in Texas

Depends a bit on your sailing preferences. Clear Lake is a day away from open water, while it's just a bit farther by car to drive on down to Galveston, so you might want to keep that in mind. With...

Re: Crew Wanted Annapolis to NC

Be helpful to know where in NC you're going, as well as whether or not you expect them to provide their own transportation, since it seems to be a request for free crew.

Wouldn't hurt to know if...

Re: New Bern, NC meet and greet?

Water is up, but everything here in New Bern is floating docks. Suppose to rain through today, and then the wind starts shifting to the north, which should start to blow the water back down.

Re: Your On Board Tea Fix.

I'm quite content using tea bags. Bigelow Cinnamon Stick and Twinnings English and Irish Breakfast. I've tried loose tea and don't find it worth the bother, especially on a boat.
