To add to what abv3 said.
The cruisers wiki is a user contributed web site so anyone can contribute. It's just a matter of registering for an account and jumping in to edit pages. Accounts have to be approved by a moderator so be patient while one of the admins allows you in.
We are quite a bit short of information on the west and east coasts of the Americas in particular so any information you can provide about the Salish Sea would be useful. I cruise
, the South Pacific
and SE Asia
and so I don't know anything about it myself. There are probably some pages that you can expand on, if you need any tips or help then I'm happy to guide you through the process of creating and editing pages. Either PM me here or reply via this thread and I'll see what I can do.
of the wiki are as good as some of the pilots now with all of the information provided by members -- in particular Greece
and the Eastern Mediterranean
, some parts
and parts of the South Pacific
. The information in the pages on Samoa
and Rarotonga as well as parts of French Polynesia
are as good as any of the cruising guides
you might purchase
, and it's all been contributed by people who have been there, cruise
there or in some cases live there. For other parts of the world, as you pointed out the west coast
and down through the USA and Mexico
as well, we really need a few more contributors to add to the information that we have.
The offline version of the wiki, although it's a big file and needs some time to download, is a copy that you can take with you. You can load it up on a PC or laptop
, or stick it on a SD card and put it into an Android tablet with a copy of Kiwix and then you don't need an internet
connection to read it. That's useful if you need to look up things like the email
address of harbour masters and/or customs
advance notification addresses while you're on passage
We're working on some more changes and improvements over time. We just rebuilt the home page so you can click on an area and follow that through to countries and ports
listed in that area. We're adding some other non-country specific stuff such as guides on engine maintenance
, battery charging
