Re: Are you a small boat cruiser?

What I have learned about social groups, please share and maybe some of them will become active:

1. To get to them, go to Community -> Social Groups
You'll find something labeled All Groups and ways to browse around them.

2. To join, select a group and join it.

--Here's where it gets fuzzy for me because it's new knowledge, but I'm told it works--

I'm not sure what joining does other than make you visible to other group members, but the key that I'm hoping for is:

3. While viewing a group select Group Tools -> Subscribe

At this point, if I understand correctly, you should now be notified when there's activity, which will encourage you to go back and participate. At least, that's how I hope they work.

My boat is like me. People look, and say "... pretty good shape ... for its age ..."

Re: Are you a small boat cruiser?

I joined. Hopefully this one is more active than the 'Ale lovers' group.

Last year we acquired our 35 yr old 28 footer. Last year was not great with low water levels on Lake Champlain and change of residence, jobs, car accident, etc.

This year sailing is the priority. Get out on the water. Don't worry about stuff until it breaks. We are not blue water ready anyway.

Next year...ICW?

Re: Are you a small boat cruiser?

Joined. Sorry, I don't post here much ... yet. I'm refitting an Albin Vega 27 for an extended (two year-ish?) Caribbean cruise, starting in the Fall of 2020.

For now it's a few days here, few days there, aboard our Catalina 22. Our record is six days and nights without touching a dock, or re-provisioning of any kind. We could go a lot longer if it weren't for our stupid JOBS.

OK all you small boaters, don't miss this group:

Cruisers & Sailing Forums - The Small Boat Cruiser

and BTW, perhaps this thread may have something of interest?
Handy stuff for pocket cruisers, et al.
