Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
 
Hello there! I'm a 62 year old Miami resident, been sailing 40 years, just sold my 1985 S-2 9.2, and am buying a 1996 Bennie Oceanis 400. Most sailing has been in the Miami area, but looking forward to expanding to Florida Keys, Caribbean, and Cuba. In addition to normal family and friends pleasure sailing, I do some day chartering, and also use sailing as a networking platform for my headhunting business. (Sailing is better than golf for networking because: 1-no competition, winners/losers; 2-captive audience, nobody leaves till it's over; 3- I'm the captain! :) Lots of bluewater sailing dreams but probably not in this life...except perhaps crewing for one or two bluewater passages. Happy New Year to all!

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
 
I'm currently landlocked in Allen TX but planning to move to the Caribbean to live on a sailboat in a few years. (By 2023 hopefully!) I've lived on Jamiaca and Puerto Rico and have a lot on Eleuthera that we've visited once. My wife would prefer to build on the lot but I prefer to live on a sailboat. I'm looking forward to meeting others with sailing experience of this and other areas of the world I can talk the wife into sailing off to. I grew up around water and boats. Most of my boating experience has been with power boats on fresh water lakes and rivers. Typically I consider horsepower and adrenaline important factor in my purchases of a vehicle but the prospect of early retirement on a boat that can take me virtually anywhere in the world is too enticing. So I'm looking at sailboats around 40ft that we can live on in the Gulf and Caribbean until health forces us to do otherwise. I'm scheduling a sailing class off the coast of Puerto Rico next year to get my ASA certifications and want to see about getting a commercial license to do charters as a possible way to supplement income while living on a boat. Anyway, I look forward to connecting with like-minded souls are willing to impart their wisdom and experiences. We know there will be sacrifices made to live this life. Any advice or words of wisdom and encouragement are greatly appreciated. Safe travels to all!

Hi, new to Sailing, just purchase a Macgregor M25, a casualty of hurricane Michael. I just got the boat home from the panhandle this past weekend.

The boat (hull and fiberglass) itself is in excellent condition. The interior needs a lot of work. I just finished taking out the wooden cabinets what someone had built inside. All cushions are gone except the v berth. Came with a Nissan 9.9HP 4 stroke. Previous owner said the carb needs to be rebuilt. Previous owner lived on the boat until September (2 months ago). Then hurricane Michael came ashore around Port St. Joe and filled the boat with water (fresh water).

I plan on searching the forum for ideas on how to remodel the interior. I plan on doing most of the remodeling myself, excluding the cushions.

Any and all thoughts and input on how to replace the headliner, check the electrical (came with shore power), removing the chipping/peeling of what appears to be paint on the ceiling around the headline. Or, just remodeling suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards and happy sailing.

I am from Pointe-Verte New-Brunswick its near Bathurst N.B. just purchased my first sailboat "All Set" is her name its a C&C 30 MK1 1979. I love the water, last summer I got a 21 ft fishing boat named "Le Dauphin" but my long time dream was to sail. At this moment my boat is dry docked in Caraquet not very far from here, I am getting the boat ready to launch and sail from Caraquet to Bathurst. I am really looking forward as this will be my first trip on my boat but I will bring an experienced sailer with me. Thanks for accepting me in this forum, I look forward to reading your posts and learning from your experiences.

Hello,
My name is Robert and I residing in Colorado Springs, Colorado at this time. I have been retired a bit to early. I'm from Ohio and s/w Pennsylvania area. I have travel oversea by ships (Military) and have sailed the great lake of Erie in Cleveland, Ohio. I'm leaning towards a boat of ocean structure and like a twin motors/sails and a diving rear dock? Livable capabilities. I'm also interested in Costa Rica coast line for sailing and possible docking for long stay if accepted, retired. Diving stopped due to retirement and would like to be re-certified (NAUI) as a scuba diver again, maybe PADI also If Medically advisable.

I would appreciate any guidance and advise on the dreams this little dreamer dreams.

Thank you

Is there facilities for cruising yachts, say 40 to 50 feet there?

Do many stop in each year?

Florida is a big place so I don't know where to compare to. Actually, Google would be better than me. That said, we use A/C at the dock and fans when anchored out. Full awnings for the boat are a real plus.

Thanks - Iíve summered on my boat in Key Largo and in the Cape Canaveral area, mostly with no A/C (had a Cruisaire hatch mount ac for a while but couldnít handle the noise) and have found that with fans, bug screens, and sun shades itís been manageable. I just looked at the NOAA historical data from last summer for New Bern and it looks like it gets hot during the day (90ís) but cools off at night into the 70ís and even the high 60ís some. Thatís almost ten degrees less than the temps I was accustomed to in Florida, so it doesnít look so bad!
