Wow, how things have progressed. My apologies for not posting more regularly. While working on our own "Salvo" I landed a position on a much more modern, high tech power vessel, an Azimut 55S. So, now we have a foot in two worlds, wooden sailboat traditional and modern power, high tech. We now work for a private client and that been very busy with an engaging variety of details from galley to engine room. I have found a permanent crewman for "Salvation" but, here again now we are both caught…Continue

Just to be clear...we are saving a vessel that is not a pedigree, not particularly historic and that contemporary society would deem disposable. Still, i do see her as a resource, with timbers that may have been saplings when the pilgrims landed, she has a lot of strength and sturdiness left to her and the only reason most others would toss her aside is for lack of knowledge or cost of labor does not balance against cost of item to be retained. I, for one, I do not agree with our disposable…Continue
I go to my local library quite often and they recently acquired a 3D printer for their members to use. So 3D printing has hit the mainstream! How about 3D printers for sailing?
I have been completely fascinated by the printer and always stop at the machine, where it is prominently displayed in the library lobby. I have taken some photos of some the projects that people have submitted to be produced by the 3D printer.

Once again more great information gathered at Cruiser’s U. This time it’s tips for crossing the Gulf Stream.
Something sailors definitely respect is the Gulf Stream. You want to avoid the short steep waves that occur if you cross at the wrong time.
The Gulf Stream is created by many factors, the rotation of the earth (Coriolis effect), different water temperatures, different salinity levels, varying seabeds and of course winds.
All of these factor…Continue

Yep I still have more Cruiser's U tips for you. The last day of the workshop I attended Ralph Naranjo's seminar that covered everything from crossing the Gulf Stream to weather, to ocean passage planning, to getting the appropriate boat for blue water sailing.
So today I will wrap up my notes from Cruiser's U with tips offshore…Continue

Been on the road for a conference this week, so I got behind on posting. Plus I got some unexpected great news late yesterday.
As a blogger, I follow many of the industry leaders in this arena in an effort to improve my content to make it valuable for all of you and also to make a living so I can fund my planned sail around the world.
So earlier this year I purchased a very coveted ticket to a conference in Australia. These tickets sold out in hours and I…Continue

I have so much to share that I learned from the Cruiser's University seminars in Annapolis back in April. So I want to share some more of the valuable tips from Cruiser's University that I picked up in the seminars. Today's focus is on the offshore cruiser, but some of the tips apply to day sailors too.
Things that make cruising life easier in general

I attended Cruiser's University in Annapolis in late April. This was an awesome workshop that was led and attended by seasoned cruisers from all over the US and the world.
The four days of classes started, for me and fifteen other wonderful women, with Cruising for Women. This two day class was led by the lovely team of Pam Wall and Kathy Parsons. Both of these women have sailed around the world at least once and offered us all a wealth of knowledge from their…Continue

I belong to many sailing groups online and especially on Facebook. One of my favorite groups posted this picture of using a swim noodle to muffle the sounds of the halyard banging on the mast and in turn get a much better night's sleep.
The ingenious use also saves wear and tear on the mast and shackle on the halyard. Just like gymnasts use mats to cushion the blow of any falls, the swim noodle lessens the impact versus metal on metal. Now that's using your…Continue
