My wife and I are headed to the BVIs for our 3rd bare-boat trip next month. We have 4 or 5 CDs that we always take with a variety of music, but she gets tired of the same old boat music after a few days (maybe because we use them on our boat as well).

Anyone willing to share a few selections of your favorite boat tunes?

Around in these parts (San Diego) Smooth Jazz seems to meld very well with the local sailing conditions:) IMHO:cool:
A couple of my personal favotites for you to try would be Acoustic Alcehmy, Bobby Lyle, Lee Ritenour, The Rippingtons, Chuck Loeb, Rick Braun, Tom Grant, Doc Powell, Paul Hardcastle and many others.;)

New ipod: $400.00
New ipod compatible stereo: $400.00
Turning the stereo off, and listening to your boat charging through the wind and waves: priceless.
Wow! Where do you shop?

Ipod Shuffle, holds 500 songs, $49.00
Ipod Nano, holds 2000 songs, $149.00 Also contains a video camera and a built in FM tuner.

Small speakers can be purchased for a few dollars.

An Ipod FM transmitter that sends a signal to an empty FM station through your boat stereo and also charges your Ipod can be had for less than $30.00

Jimmy Buffett.

Actually Sirius radio will probably make your wife's day. She can select from many different themed stations and there are no commercials. Not sure but you'll probably need an oversized antenna to get it down there (no little dashboard antennas).

Not sure if these apply, but this coverage map was labled "Rock".

And this was labeled "Roll".

(I say "not sure" because I'm not really familiar with these satellites.)

Regards,
Brad

It has been a few years back when we bought a FM transmitter - I think it was the Best Buy store brand. We didn't have any luck with it - the MP3 player and the stereo volume were both turner all the way up and we could barely hear it - and we tried it on a couple of different recievers.

Has anyone had any luck with one?

Thanks,

JP

It would help if you tell us what the 4 or 5 you always take are so we can get a sense of you taste in music.

That said, here are some of my must have albums (skipping the obvious ones):

- Dvorak "From the New World" (the *perfect* soundtrack to a BFS)
- The Pogues "If I Should Fall From Grace with God" (for when you have had a few, or a few too many)
- Peter Gabriel "Passion" (for any time)

I'm beginning to be impressed by some of the musical taste around here.

The other day on the song chain guitar whizz Steve Hacket got a mention and then Gentle Giant. Smack likes Marsalis and Brecker. Some tasty jazz players appear. We even get mention of the Pogues the Dropkicks nd Peter Gabriel, while no one has mentioned effing bloody Christopher Cross. Way to go. :)

Have to say that IPod is the go for boat. Acoustics in most boats are crap anyway so what you lose in the sound quality probably doesn't matter much.

This is one that I particularly like though I doubt many of you would have ever seen the TV series that used it as a theme.

I am making a CD for summer cruising. I need some upbeat, fun tunes to play in the car. Nothing like old school beatles or anything like that, preferably more new songs. Upbeat and fun like "How Do You Sleep" by Jesse McCartney or MGMT "Time to Pretend". THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!
