Re: Smaller Boat Blogs & Bluewater Voyages

Guys,

Just so you know, when the weather's awful, it's not good for the camera, so don't expect anything but a "it's all mai tai's in the sunset" sort of thing, really. When it's awful, you're too busy to get the camera, even if it would be okay.

Only a little over 150,000 n. mi.

Ann

This is a great adventure, old but good. Not really a blog, but well worth a read. I remember being inspired by the original seaspray articles as a kid.

But makes for an interesting television. C.f. the commercial success of the Deadly Catch show. Go Pro (or a cheap Chinese clone thereof) in a waterproof box should do it.

An excellent read. Thanks for the link. I believe a full course in celestial navigation is in my very near future.
