Kevin Wood replied to h's discussion Electronic Charts and Chart Plotters. Which One? in the group Zen and the art of sailboat maintenance
"You might want to look into electronic charts for PC, where you could print out sections to have paper backup. For at least some areas they can be had pretty cheaply; and combined with plug-in GPS module can be a plotter (like I do in Caribbean).…"

"I definitely don't use my laptop on deck - but in our cat the nav station is in the main saloon, at just about deck level and with decent visibility in almost all directions - and when I'm there, it doubles as my desk so my laptop is out…"

"This may not be of much help, but I have some knowledge... For the most bare-bones solution, I had bought a $79 package of Microsoft Streets & Trips that came with a USB GPS receiver to plug into my laptop, and then bought another $99 package…"

"Thanks...I found out that, fortunately, the removal was pretty easy on our boat - room enough for guys at Grenada Marine to replace entire sail drive in a couple hours. On our boat the engine "rooms" are basically covers, under the counter…"

"We have 2 Yanmar Saildrives on our SF 44, but I've never changed them myself. Doesn't look that tough (as long as boat is out of the water :)). I would comment that I've been advised it's a good idea to change the diaphrams…"

No, only Newport, and that just for a day. Fitting 4 days of business in NY, visit to family in RI and the boat show all into a one-week trip to east coast from CO... About the time of Annapolis show will be heading down to St. Vincent. I didn't realize CatCo operated out of Union; hope you can get there soon. This trip I'll probably head the other way - St. Lucia, Martinique & Dominica - though if time allows may hit Bequia, Mustique, Tobago Cays and/or Union also.

HI. Kevin. Thank you so much for your reply! No Im not moving to the Grenadines I like Tortola too much! Catco has several boats out of Union Island available for charter and I was hoping to go visit. Unfortunately the trip has been postponed. Will you be attending the Annapolis Boat Show also?

Hi Kevin,

The weather here is great! So far all of the Caribbean has been lucky this season with no storms in the islands. The current storm Gustof came through Bequia as a strong tropical wave with lots of rain but little wind and then blew up into a Tropical storm the following day after moving over the Caribbean Sea.
