Google Earth and Notice to Mariners

I love finding new and neat technology. Most of you are familiar with the Local Notice to Mariners. You may not be aware that there is also a "International" Notice to Mariners - it is actually...

I would humbly suggest that you are trying the patience of those posters (including myself) who participate in an effort to help other boaters/sailors. :mad: There is NO answer to your question. And...

Re: Needed: Customs & Immigration 101

Actually it is not a law nor a rule. Since there is no real thing as "international law" but rather "treaties" and "agreements" it can't be a law. However, 168 countries plus the European Union are...

Re: Needed: Customs & Immigration 101

I share Faster's comment. You want to roll the dice - lose your boat, go to jail, or at least have a huge hassle. Do it. IMHO there is no place worth the risk. Remember that as a foreigner in most...

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

Well, yes, offshore will stick. I think Baltoplate would probably stick too. For me, I did not think from the specs that Offshore would work in high fouling zones like the Caribbean

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

I kept several boats in the Great Lakes. For ease (not expense) VC-17 was the way to go. It is self polishing and hard. After a season (that included both two long distance races (Chicago Mac and...

Re: Novice: Certifications? Re: Hard time finding crew opportunities

First, let me say that Captains are as individual as boats. I would have to look up your certifications because I don't have any and have no idea what they represent. I have been sailing for over 50...
