About 150 gallons.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoob :I too had my doubts,but your misadventures have proven your legitimacy !!!
Remember; the adventure is usually not fun while you are having it.

Only 6000 nautical miles to Cape Horn remain....But only if you take your schooner down the length of the Andes;to go by water you can easily double that distance.To avoid arriving in the Southern Ocean winter you may want to cut out all these unnecessary delays for repairs,tows ,food ,fuel and free dockage. On the plus side,I understand that the winds are better there in the winter, albeit contrary.
FWIW: I have heard there is a shortcut somewhere near Panama..............
Hope this helps. Mike

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

I too have been enjoying this thread as scooby puts one after the other naysayer in their places by doing the deed. Great job scoobert.

I can't believe the snarkiness your voyage is bringing out in some people.

Like Deepfrz said, were I sailing in Scooberts place I would have put several characters on ignore from about the Hudson River.it is just like the real world, some people are for you and some against you. I have learned a bunch from the helpfull folks and been mostly annoyed by the trolls. Scoobert, press on.

So many people with no sailing experience come to this forum with very romantic dreams of sailing as a lifestyle. They visualize all the clear blue waters and lovely breezes of the tropics. They think it is all adventure and fun.
The reality is that there are all sorts of experiences, like weather and waves, groundings, mishaps, breakdowns, sea sickness, anchors dragging, more costly than anticipated, scary situations etc.
if this thread opens people's eyes, and makes them better aware of many of the realities that need to be considered.....it is a very good thing indeed!
I would title it.....the making of a sailor!
I have been sailing since 16 but have introduced many to sailing and it is all adventures and fun. why else would you do it. But this must be why so many sit behind there computer and learn sailing instead of the way scoobs doing it. I prefer his way

a more interesting question would be "How much weight have you lost?"

jumping up and down all those docks,and walks into town must be doing wonders for your waistline!

Hilarious! I'm not neurotypical either (ADHD). We're the future of humanity, for better or worse, LOL.
