I see you have a feed and an email subscription - that's really nice. We added the email subscription not too long ago because it made life easier for those who DON'T use a feed reader but still want to be notified when we update (like my folks).

I recently stumbled onto Honeymoon's blog while googling for info on transiting the Panama Canal. The write-up and video of their transit is fun and full of useful stuff, and it enticed me into the rest of their postings. Their voyage ended in Australia two months ago, but their blog is intact. Be sure to checkout the video of their Colombia passage. It's a thriller.,

Favorite Blogs

One of my favorite blogs is S/V Totem Family .
Mainly because we know them and had a great time with them recently in La Cruz before they left for the Marquesas. They left just a couple of days ago on their Stevens 47 with their three kids.
Perhaps it is not as exciting or as technical as some blogs - but it makes a big difference if you know them

These guys seem to have the spirit down... The captain (a young guy) originally took charge of an abandoned 52 foot steel hull (homebuild) for free, in Hong Kong, fixed it up for a year or two, and has been sailing the world since, taking one crew as he goes. One or two permanent, and the rest transients... He says he never plans to stop cruising...

Karaka's log

main site

Some of his past crew have gone on to captain their own boats, also perpetually cruising the world for many years now. A good example:

As a note for folks thinking of setting up a blog, its quite easy to make a website instead.
you get more flexibility, more space for photos and videos.

You can make some parts password protected so only family can read things. You can add interactive maps.
And you can have your own domain name and all the email addresses you want with that domain name.

It isn't too hard, but the first learning how to do it is a bit of a brain teaser... and, hey, what else is there to do all day while cruising?

[Edit] Thinking about it, its a good thing to do before you head off, or when you do have a bit of time to play around, and have a good internet conection.

Captain Blaine's Blog

I liked this site Captain Blaine does delivery and captain for hire work and his writing style is very entertaining.

By the does the feed reader work and how do you set one up?

And one of my favorites,
Voyages of Sea Trek
Our site for Beach House is more dedicated to the upgrades and repairs in getting the boat ready for our next cruise. But we have posted our most recent trip up the ICW from Beaufort, SC to the Chesapeake.

Re: Favorite Cruising Blogs

This thread is very old, but I'd love for fellow cruisers to know about my website. We've been cruising Mexico for 3 years and have spent a lot of time in places many cruisers don't get to.

We've got some cruising guide info for anyone headed to Mexico in a boat for the first time (it became the basis of Latitude 38's 2012 "First Timer's Guide to Mexico"), and we also have lots of info for those heading to the southernmost parts of Mexico:

Roads Less Traveled

Best of all, it's chock full of pretty pics.

Re: Favorite Cruising Blogs

Hi all
We're a family who are cruising the Med on a Dean 365 catamaran. My 10-year old son Aidan is blogging about his adventures, and I'd love to connect him with other kids on boats. Aidan's blog is My Voyage in Med | All my pros and cons of the med.

I don't really want him corresponding with adults he doesn't know (obviously), but perhaps your kids could write back to Aidan, or share their posts with him.
