retired in Jan 07 from a fun profession to pursue a life-long dream of exploring the world by sail. Bought a new LEOPARD 40 catamaran, and took delivery Feb 08.

US East Coast
Changing Spots headed out from Ft. Lauderdale, FL in March 2008. Traveled north to visit the east coast of the US this summer, and am now back in Ft Lauderdale. The Carib in a month or so, and then it is off to see the world.

Thanks. I'm paid up for a couple more days, then will try to catch an afternoon tide down the Hudson, and up through Hell gate. I'll wave when I go by.
Then to explore a bit of Long Island Sound on the way north. I've been singlehanding for the last weeks, and plan to buddyboat with a friend who is also singlehanding, for a while.
Hey Robert, welcome to NY! our marina is directly across the Hudson on the Jersey side, right next to the subway to the city (it's called the PATH here). If you get tired of being in a mooring and want shorepower, fresh water, etc, call Iris at 201-626-5550. Let us know if you come by!
Am now in Solomons, MD where I will spend the next few weeks before heading further north. I'm afraid I went through S. Carolina rather quickly, but thoroughly enjoyed a day at Prince Creek. The alligators and fireflies seems quite friendly and put on a good show.
Will also want to stop at Georgetown again on the way back south. The anchorage was a bit tenuous though, and crowded.
I plan on doing the same thing as you, in a few years, but starting on the East coast. I have insider knowledge to share about routes and secure anchorages from NYC to Boston includiung the Cape and the Islands. When you are ready and near this area give me a shout.

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response. Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
