Re: Bahamas cruising permit question...

hi, i actually thought the cruising permit applies to the boat. i believe that it is good for up to a year. afaik, all people need a visa. the problem that we've seen is that depending on officier on duty you may get anywhere from 30 days to 6 months. we have only cleared in at west end (really good...

Re: Springfield double helm seat

hi mac,

i have an alignment question. our 2003 has a crown in the flybridge floor. not sure if that's true on later years but if it is, how did you ensure that the vertical supports are parallel? the reason i ask is that it was mentioned that correct alignment is critical.

Re: Current accurate weather

we have used batelco simm and a data plan to get internet and weather. we have a cell booster which helps in exumas. cell companies have added a lot more cell towers so most areas you can get coverage. if you're a sail cat you can run cellphone up mast in a bag to increase range.

Re: Another newbie

hi,

we replaced our original davits with a set from st croix. i think they were an definite upgrade.

we too have used a magma grill on the stern rail with 1lb bottles. we too have the refiller from the 10lb tank. we've used this for 13 yrs of cruising and it works for us.

Re: Hard Top?

there is a diy yard in manatee pocket. the name escapes me. something like J&R. they are at extreme south end of the pocket. they will provide labor for a price. give them a call.
