Sensible Small Boat Cruising


Sensible Small Boat Cruising

A group to discuss cruising in small boats. (25-36 feet). That's not set in stone, but I'm partial to that kind of cruising.

You may not have picked up on the fact that I spent the last thirty years in Hawaii.

Orvil, how can you not like the weather this year? You can't complain we haven't had could get a turkey airborne lately.
All of a sudden the Tortugas is sounding awfully good!

Honestly I can't remember the last time I checked in here. The last year has been a busy and frustrating one. On the positive side I received my Pensionado visa in Panama so I'm a legal resident. On the negative side I have to sell a 21 foot Boston Whaler Revenge and in this economy I don't think you could sell a hundred dollar bill for $50. It's the only thing that's keeping me in the States right now.

What has kept me away from this site has been the time I spend maintaining two blogs...

This blog is about boats, music, retirement to Panama and whatever might strike my fancy at the moment.

The other blog is:

Come visit me there.

January 1 2010 - Puget Sound: Raining sideways but warm (50f). Wind pushing the boat around in the slip. Gale warnings in effect. I'll be happier in May.

Aloha e komo mai Ocean Girl. We are cruising in a Vega 27 and agree whole heartedly.

Just joined this group, love cruising small boats. I have a Cape Dory 30. My previous boats were Pacific Seacraft 25(great pocket cruiser), Ranger 23 (was built as offshore/racer), and a US Yacht 25 ( poor quality, not for offshore, but a fabulous sailor). I have about 20,000 ocean miles delivering sailboats, the largest being a 52 ft Little Harbor and the smallest a Island packet 27. I felt just as safe in the 27 footer than I did in the 52 footer. A lot of people equate the size of the vessel with the safety and I heartily disagree. To me it is good design and construction not size.
My Cape Dory has a 9 foot beam, so she doesn’t have the interior volume that other 30 footer have. she is perfect for me though and that narrow beam means she points like a demon. She needs lots of work before I can go cruising but that is part of the adventure too! Thanks for letting me join your group, I am new to this blogging/forum stuff so I hope ths was the spot to post my Introduction.

It's official. I was notified today that my Pensionado Visa in Panama was approved and I now have resident's status in the Republic.

Orville, thank you for providing additional information on living in you mentioned visiting is far different than living there. It certainly did provide me with a clearer perspective........
