I may be wrong, he may be planning a Movie!
Its also possible a passing ship said 'where the hell do you think you're going' about 3 minutes before he turned South
phil tends to buy stuff like laptops,and spots etc when he has the cash from the deposit as an investment for the delivery and future deliveries/

my guess is if he is still heading south tommorow he will stop in st martin for a week or so.

I use UGRIB and there is also ZYGRIB. They work great to download off a sat phone.

GRIB.US > Home
Don't click the "download" button on the left side of the screen - bad news.

The devil is in the details. The shapes of weather systems are based on data, as are the wave height estimates, but when you project it into the future it is at best an educated guess. After you've been looking at gribs and MSLs for a while, you decide what you like best. I personally am partial to MSLs because they are all data, not fantasy. YMMV.

And now, [I]sail on, Boatie ![I]


Ann
True Dat. I don't know the N. Atlantic, but sailing with gribs along 20 degrees north from Mexico to Hilo, after a week or more we began adding 15-20 kts. to the forecast and got a good rough estimate. I don't think, from a cursory view of his leaving posts, that he has grib weather. I think he's either going to St. Martin as has been suggested or just playing the wind and waves that come his way, with an experienced eye to weather systems, barometer, etc.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Phil appears to be just south and east of this NOAA buoy.
Lots of info on wind speed and direction, wave height and period along with direction. Some historical data also.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Salty, et al,
I'm not sure what this particular Lagoon 440 is equipped with...as this is the only info posted here about it...

There was a 440 recently sold in Ft. Lauderdale which had a Raymarine plotter/MFD w/ Sirius Marine Weather receiver...and I've seen a few 440 owner's versions brokerage listed showing equipped w/ Icom M-802 HF/SSB radios....
So, it's possible the previous owner equipped this 440 in a similar fashion...





I did an ITU database search (to determine its radio installation and licenses), but found no vessels named "Bonne Etoille" (as Phil wrote), although I found 4 named "Bonne Etoile", one USA and three French...(the 3 French have gross tonnage listed as 1 tonne, 24 tonnes, and 39 tonnes....and all list VHF radio, but not MF, HF, SSB, EPIRB...but this is not surprising as the database is full of holes/missing info)

So, I wasn't able to find anything useful their about this particular Lagoon 440, from the ITU...





And, this looks unlikely....

(I may be wrong in this assumption, but read the posts by them, 3 threads total, since joining in Aug 2013....and make your own determination...)

We are not sure what to do boat-wise, buy or rent?(something around a 40 ft)
Buy:
- Is it possible for us Belgians to buy a boat in SF and make sure everything is ok paper wise (legal stuff, insurance...)
- What kind of permits/license do we need? Yachtman, ICC, GMDSS ...?
- Is it maybe cheaper to buy one in Mexico or LA?

Rent:
- Can we rent a 40ft boat in SF and drop it of somewhere in the Caribbean?
- Cost?
- What kind of permits/license do we need? Yachtman, ICC, GMDSS ...?

Any other tips and tricks always welcome!

Elax

I find very little info about this on the web.

We also want to know if it is a really bad idea to sail from the ABC's to Grenada (sailing against wind and current, piracy on Venezuelan coast)? Has anybody done it in this direction recently?

Thanks in advance

ps: we are looking for a 40' cruiser that is ready/capable for this trip

Thank you!

That's everything I've been able to locate that would shed light on how this 440 is equipped...

Re: Atlantic Delivery

He drooped almost 3 degrees to south and is going dead east now. It really suggest he has some mean of getting the forecast I think...

You know, one reason this thread is fun is that it's actually about sailing.

Actually you'd be surprised how petty owners can be in that regards. Often expecting the skipper to bring EPIRBs extra electronics etc
