Re: Atlantic Delivery

Does Boaty have a weather router service or is he doing his own weather routing?

When he takes on a delivery job, his mission is to get the boat from point A to point B without damage, with minimal reasonable cost to the owner and in a suitable time frame (but not necessarily the fastest). When he has the con, He makes the decisions that affects the above requirements, not the owner - whether or board or not.

He does not push the boat and often sails well reefed in preference to getting maximum boat speed (unless fleeing from danger or shonky owners ).

He doesn't trust crew unless they have really proved themselves to be very capable. He has posted before about how much harder having crew is compared to single handing.

So my guess he will stay away from ports unless absolutely necessary to meet his prime objectives, he will sail conservative manner (ie slowly) and watch the weather as much as possible.

And if his spot doesn't move much for a few hours, he is having a kip with his crew keeping a lookout - if he doesn't trust 'em enough to handle the boat safely .

IMHO.

Interesting comments re crew , I know he says that himself. I do think its a single handler defect mentality. If I sail with crew they have to capable enough to stand watch. Else they're passengers and I don't tolerate them.
