    Summer reading ideas

    I'm half way through Blue Latitudes and while enjoying it, his descriptions of these fabled south Pacific islands today is depressing.

    Getting Tough With The Maskless

    Finally Texas requiring masks, way late. Let's see if Florida will wake up. I really need to get back to my boat in Panama, but at this rate of infection in the US I don't see any prospect that Panama will open to flights from the US anytime soon, especially with most flights being from Florida and Texas.

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    Given all the hassles I’ve had with my outboard I’m amazed theirs lasted so long.

    Solo Transatlantic. Because Airplanes are out.

    He must have had some major storage additions. Sailboat data says 8 gals of diesel and 7 gals of water! Not quite enough for 75 days. I briefly considered something similar when faced with having to leave Panama in Mid-March, but my boat and I were not really ready to go. I thought of sailing non-stop to Florida from Portobello. At least then I would have access to my boat. Now I have no idea when I will get back to it.

    Cruising Consultans Crealock 37

    Excuse my ignorance, but was the mizzen original? Also, no dodger? (I have a PSC34 and almost bought a PSC37 in the PNW last year, but decided it was too much boat for me single handing with limited experience.)

    Massive effort going into making bronze floors.

    OpenWind - solar powered wireless anemometer

    No experience, but Webb Chiles bought one and has an account on his journal from a couple weeks ago, but he cannot try it out on his boat for many months to come. Interested myself for my boat with almost no instruments on it now, for connection to iPhone and iPad and even Mac Airbook, if not ancient chartplotter.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Pity they did not have a tracker on it, we could all enjoy watching its travels around the Pacific.

    What custom cruiser...if money were no object?

    I wonder if any of the Perry carbon cutters has actually been used by the owner yet.

    Are the riots a precursor to a new wave of Covid?

    Local guy who appears to have gotten the looting started in our little town with a Facebook post. No known Antifa connection. Pretty much ruined the rest of his life, not to mention the looted businesses, some of which are still closed. https://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/courts-police-fire/update-urbana-man-faces-federal-charge-of-inciting-riot-at-mall/article_a72edb29-040b-5392-97cc-9d04e29cf5a3.html
