Re: Seattle to Florida in stages

Hey can you tell us about whoever else will be on board? When will you be leaving and do you have an idea on a timeline? Can you tell us a little bit more about the typical day to day?

Re: Seattle to Florida in stages

Hi
I am planning to leave mid September and currently I am single handing it. I have a spare double cabin.

Its difficult to have a precise timeline but I estimate 3 months for the trip assuming no break downs and no extended stops for weather and sight seeing.

The rhumb line total distance is approx 5500 nm.

I would like to have someone to watch keep, 6 hrs on and 6 hrs off if there are 2 of us and to help with some meal preparation. Notionally the legs would be Seattle to SanFrancisco, then to LA/San Diego, to Cabo, to Accapulco, to Costa Rica, to Panama, to Gran Caman, to Florida. But its worth noting that a lot will change enroute and, at this point anything we say is only approximate.

Regards

Eric

Re: Seattle to Florida in stages

Will you be going ashore at all besides the necessary supplies? Can you tell us more about your typical day to day? Expenses?

I am open to suggestions. Obviously I have a long way to go and can't linger too long anywhere. Also I don't want to go south of Cabo in the hurricane season. While at sea the boat will go 24/7 and usually for a week at a time. Tiredness is an issue and taking a few day off here and there would be nice. I am attaching a file which has the notional plan. Call me if you are interested.

You might want to re-thing that. Or maybe you were not writing precisely. Just ignore the following if this is stuff you already know.

You do not want to be south of San Diego or Ensenada until November 1 or October 21 at the earliest.

Cabo is a horrible place to be in a hurricane. There is no possible anchorage available and slips will run about $2/foot/night for a mono-hull.

There are no safe hurricane anchorages along the west coast of the Baja Penninsula south of Ensenada and there is a long history of October hurricanes and tropical storms along the Baja west coast.

I was doing a delivery of a 65' sailboat from Seattle to St Croix a few years ago. Got to San Diego in early October and the owner insisted on pushing on despite many warnings. I refused to continue as captain and left the boat in San Diego.

The boat suffered serious damage when hit by a hurricane the third week of October between Cabo San Lucas and Manzanillo.

Re: Seattle to Florida in stages

I would rethink the 6 hour watches. Four ok but 3 seems best for 2 up.
