Now don't be a hater just because his boat is bigger than yours. Heck, I have had trouble finding my way around the dinghy after a shore party…



You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Nice example!

‘Structural engineering is the art of modeling materials we do not wholly understand into shapes we cannot precisely analyse as to withstand forces we cannot properly assess in such a way that the public at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance.’

Re: Navionics

I've found Navionics to be great in Australia but their charts are shockingly bad for the Bahamas and for that matter Florida. The Sonar Charts cannot be trusted, I thought they were more accurate than the standard charts and thus ran us aground on a bank that showed over 2m depth on the chart (we draw 1.3m). The Garmin Bluewater App isn't as slick as the Navionics but has much more accurate charts for the Bahamas and tons of info from active captain. For the money having both is best!
