  1. Heading toward Davis Strait: I thought he would have gone inside through Hudson Strait, but probably doesn't want to risk getting trapped in ice at the Fury and Hecla Strait https://explore.garmin.com/textmessage/viewmsg?mo=31d32437452d4c1dba44c35c92c29771&adr=%2b12318814762
  2. I looked on Google Earth to visualize what you're talking about (since typical maps distort higher latitudes). Screenshot below, Igloolik is green, Tuktoyaktuk is red pin. DAMN that's a long way.
  3. It was clear in 2016 https://www.climate.gov/news-features/event-tracker/northwest-passage-clear-ice-again-2016 I guess he's thinking it will be even better this year by September http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/
  4. Dude just can't sit still: https://www.facebook.com/Jerhobie/
  5. Looks like a nice idea, but I count 5 crew. Looks like tacking would be a little messy for a singlehander with the flying jib clew slamming into the regular jib. Letterbox drop, or is that a furler I see on the sprit? I'm not a fan of furlers at the sprit (at least the top-down on my asym)
  6. I just saw the pics of the Deltaville L26. Damn nice boat indeed. https://easternshore.craigslist.org/boa/d/deltaville-1977-lindenberg-26-for-sale/6990251043.html
  7. Interesting: wonder if they'll park it next to Air Force One at National Harbor or the Wharf in DC (with a view from Tiki TNT)?
  8. "But honey, it has the word 'cruiser' in it so must be safe and seaworthy..."
  9. Totally agree on the double figure 8. You can even improve on it here.
  10. Ugh. Looks like it's time to add "flare gun warning shot" after 5 horn blasts to the list of evasive actions to attempt getting the PB driver's attention. Wonder if they make a rapid-fire flare gun model.
  11. Nice writeup today by Waterway Guide Reports it's heading to Belfast, ME
  12. I'll let the Mainers (Mariners?) answer that one. I just took the stinking pic.
  13. They get a ten foot tidal change 2x / day, so my guess is that it's riding the tide else the whole thing would be covered in seaweed.
