Capital idea!

BTW: how did that crewman break 3 ribs? Was it the steps in the companion way? The worst I had done was break several bones in my hand when caught in an override in a winch. Well, that and a severely bruised ankle from landing wrong after stepping over a hatch on the pitching bow. Scrapes and cuts go with the territory.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

Make sure before you leave that you have good insurance coverage and that you are covered for offshore passage. If boats end up with damage.....many times it is incurred offshore.

You should try this right there on your mooring. See how well it works out for you there before you assume that your wife, or yourself for that matter, can get someone back aboard in tough conditions. You will find it is more than difficult while in benigh conditions.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

I think we've reached the point where we should each ante up two bucks, pool the money, and install a couple of GoPro cameras on scoobert's boat, so everyone can sit back and enjoy watching the show after he makes landfall. Or live streaming video, and option the broadcast rights.

Breaking Seas: An overweight, middle-aged computer nerd buys his first boat, quits his job, and sails off to adventure - [author] Damato, Glenn
Borrowed from Amazon's library. Interesting account of "I'm going sailing!" right down to the way a "composting" head apparently fails quite miserably and unpredictably under the wrong circumstances.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

I would think he could talk to the many marine insurance companies out there. Even Boatus has an insurance division. I am sure he can learn a great deal from them.

I don't know about you but even my marina, where I keep my boat requires coverage for the boat as well as liability. I guess they want to make sure that in case my boat does damage to their docks....they will be covered. Plus for your own peace of mind you would want to be covered for uninsured boaters, in case they were to hit you. I also have coverage for storm damage or fuel spill.....that can cost you a fortune if it were to happen.
I like peace of mind.....insurance covers that.

Besides if you were to hit a rock or reef or some other garbage in the water (hard to see at night) you would want to be covered for the damage to your boat, and you too if you suffered medical issues.

"you would want to be covered for the damage to your boat"
Not to mention, wreck removal and environmental cleanup charges and fines.

.
My earlier comment "And where would scoobert get this coverage?" was in reply to your statement "Make sure before you leave that you have good insurance coverage and that you are covered for offshore passage."

Many insurers require a competent skipper and minimum crew standards when insuring for an "offshore passage". I am not convinced that the OP would meet those requirements.

Not 100% sure to be honest. It is a race boat, so no interior down below, and it can be a long way from one side to the other. He said he got thrown into the edge of a pipe cot. I was on deck getting the main down - we were bouncing around a bit.

Two days earlier when we were doing the route planning, I made the comment "... it's only 30 knots...". The guy who got hurt reminded me of that comment a few times.

Don't forget he has also promised in other threads to forgo the use of GPS in support of further government austerity.

also to deny any form of rescue that isn't privately funded.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

That is a nice day on the water. Video never does justice to the actual wave size but in these pictures it is evident that there is no storm. Just average downwind sailing with no green water coming over the top of the dodger. Going back into it would probably be wet, but nothing bad. No $%^& hitting the fan in this video.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

No one really knows what you will experience ....could be better, could be worse.....could be much worse, and will be very cold in November as well. This is why everyone is suggesting to stay in the ICW for as much as possible.

Just watched the video....that's a good day on the "protected" waters of the Chesapeake! Suggest you watch some of the other videos....some big water ones.
