The mystery that is the epic tale of Gary Kerr sailing from Nova Scotia to Bermuda revealed.

Update 12/18/10

 

I just talked to Gary Kerr on Seaknots chat, and he's ok after a rough ride to Bermuda..

 

He's a bit physically shaken but is restoring to good health..

 

The gooseneck on the boom blew out from severe winds.. That's why he was heading in the wrong direction for a couple of days until he could put it back together and set course back to Bermuda.  Oh, he was pinging his spot locator so much during that time for his short wave…

Crushing romance....

December 11, 2010.



So when was the last time you saw someone perform an incredibly romantic act and you inadvertently crushed the moment? Let me start from the beginning….



There’s at least 40 cruising boats in the immediate area waiting for this forecast cold front to pass through. The weather is once again warm so why not have a little fun while we’re waiting.



Monument Island is a couple of hundred yards away so a cocktail hour was planned for this afternoon for…

I'm leaving on a Jet Plane..... NOT

Tomorrow I meet with my financial advisor. By the end of our meeting I will know what my boat buying budget will be for my solo circumnavigation. While my beer budget will realistically be close to $75,000 at the top end, my champagne taste will yield a Dragonfly 1200. Sometime between now and my 1 pm meeting tomorrow I promise to buy a Florida lotto ticket.

In the meantime, I seriously request suggestions for boats in the 30 foot range. A trimaran is my #1 choice. If I have to…

Gulf Coast update

Well as it seems, with each front that passes through, there are more and more tar balls washing up on the barrier islands. Have seen the work force from BP on Daily basis and I can assure you that an effort is being made to clean up the islands by BP officials. Weather sometimes keeps them from coming out and working , but they are plugging away at it daily.



Have seen as many as 200 people walking horn island picking up and few as 75.



Don't know how long it will…
