pirate Re: Leaving a Boat Unattended for Some Time

As mentioned earlier Gib sometimes gets hammered by W'lies and Marina Bay can get quite a chop... don't know what the marina in La Linea is like but in any kind of blow the old anchorage behind the breakwater was great shelter... E or W winds... and I believe thats where the new marina is...
Anyone tried it... any good..?

Re: Leaving a Boat Unattended for Some Time

Just to say : There are thousands of sailboats unattended for winter in the Turkish marinas, and the owners of these boats are not all stupid, I suppose (I mean I hope for myself)... Among them, very luxury boats... Of course, it happens a marina office moves a boat because of works on a pontoon or a quay, but they manage it quite well..

Re: Leaving a Boat Unattended for Some Time

Thanks for the input - now have crew for both my boats, so I shall be joining up with my scheduled delivery at the end of this month and we shall sail as a small flotilla to Fort Lauderdale where I will trade up for a boat more suitable for the Caribbean.

Re: Leaving a Boat Unattended for Some Time

Hi Navwoman
I heard good reviews about Finike marina in Turkey, I stayed there several times for short periods. Heard good things from the resident liveaboards. Their priced are very reasonable.

Re: Leaving a Boat Unattended for Some Time

Must be the same storm that hit Latchi - the new work area had a bunch of boats propped up "local style" and more than a few "fell over". A couple of sailboats and the rest power boats - one a big +60 footer... Apparently lotsa minor damage to boats on the water/docked too.
I believe it came in 2 separate storms - one after the other. Glad we are out.
.
I arrived in Preveza municipal dock 20 minutes before it was hit by "the biggest" of the season. +60 knots & big waves in the marina, I burst 2 fenders, neighbours wind genny blew up and the magnet (hot) bounced off the dock and hit me on the leg ??? no damage but i enjoyed an alchohol rub afterwards (from the inside)
2 local boats sank in the marina and it was quite exciting.....

ahh yes - the med is a wonderfull place to cruise
