"Hi All, 2010 didn't have an auspicious beginning for me. Anchored out on Dec 31st for the fireworks off of Ft Myers Beach. Night was beautiful, seas calm, moon was bright and the fireworks were good! Thus 2009 ended on a high note. Alas and…"

About Me:
Met Franc & Andrea while sailing on Can Drac recently, and was introduced to this site, I am a USCG licensed 100 GT captain with about 10K offshore miles. My last trip, other than the one I met Franc, was moving my`1977 36' Allied Princess Ketch from Boston to Ft Myers this past fall. It was mostly a solo 2000 mile trip with my pug gal pale, Queen Olivia.

We, Queen Olivia and I, now live aboard in Ft Myers, Fl and look forward to some serious cruising this winter; as opposed to freezing in Boston Harbor. However, Olivia would like company because she is tired of doing all the work. We are long time liveaboards because we love the lifestyle, but much more enjoy being on the water.

My purpose on this site is to meet sailing friend with whom I can sail. I am totally new to the Ft Myers, Florida, area so it is starting a new life for me. It will be a wonderful adventure.
Current location:
Ft Myers
Destinations visited:
Entire East Coast - Nova Scotia to Miami, Bermuda in and out to Newport, RI, BVI, entire ICW, Maine, New England including the Elizabeth Islands (Cuttyhunk is a fav) and Martha's Vineyard, Block Island , Newport, etc. Learned most of my "big boat" sailing on Lake Champlain.
Looking to:
Do Keys, Dry Tortugas and Bahamas next, then the Lesser Antilles. I'm thinking St Barts would be a wonderful place to spend the winter!!! I'll do it alone if I have to, but would prefer friends along to enjoy the cruising life as Olivia isn't much of a snorkeler!!!

Hi Tom, my inbox had trouble sending a response back to you so I'll just do it here. Hope you got to the show on Sunday when at least the rain stopped. We will wait for the biggie show in Miami.

We will continue to do very short weekend cruises within 50 miles of Naples until my mom passes. Being her main caretaker I'm on a very short string for now. We were very lucky to pull off the Cabbage key trip as she had a mini stroke the day after we got back and really needed the 24 hour care that we are ready to give. But she is much better now so we shall be on standby mode till further needed. Hope to get to Panther key soon, I've met the CMCSers there as well.

Fair winds, Russell

Did you seek advice on anchoring and retrieving anchors? I can help. What rig do you have, single hand or crew?

Tom,
After you click on +add music, you should see a downloader program come up (java based). It takes a while for it to appear so be patient. It first comes up as a white window, and is hard to tell if anything is happening.

Once the downloader comes up, there should be some folders on the left hand column. I usually move my songs into my "documents" folder then I just click on it an pick the song file.

Most of the time I just go to Amazon.com and download purchase one song at a time (99 cents). Then I move the song into my documents folder to access from the downloader program on SeaKnots.
