I am planning to cruise the thorny path after hurricane season on my Pearson 365.

How do cruisers get weather forecasts in the Caribbean? I am wondering in particular if I can do this safely without an SSB. Can I use the VHF and FM for forecasts? Purchasing and installing an SSB is something I don't have the experience or budget for.

Thanks Labatt and Faster... I will definately purchase an SSB reciever, but there is no way I'll be able to justify the tranciever. I'll look into a sat phone for real emergencies. They seem to be cheaper than SSB's now.

I enjoy your blog Labatt. I can't wait to get down there.
