That sounds like a FANTASTIC temp Zee!
Things cooling down here in the Aegean. Water temp is 24C (75F) and air temp is dropping rapidly as well, so that hot spring at around 36C (97F) was really welcome.

Re: Missing Anything?

hello, lass!! welcome to cf!
yeah--is a great temp, but we have to beware of formation of named storms so we dont die while sailing in summer..not as many places to hide as in carib and gulf of mexico...we in la cruz are sweating the possibility of any more storms, as we want to move now---ggrrrr....sailing season begins in one week.....

Thanks Zee .
Sailing season is ending here. Patchwork quilts and blankets will have to be pulled out soon. Pity we cant move the boat easily over to your neck of the woods. Will be missing the warmth soon!

Did you notice there are only 76 users online? Or at least that is what is showing for me. Something must be wrong with the software (or all the new mods have seriously pissed everyone off LOL).

The Aegean. Planning to be here the winter too.

PS Numbers online back to over 1000 so there must have been a temporary glitch in the system.

[QUOTE=Seaworthy Lass;1068487]No need to miss a hot tub when sailing! This shot was taken late yesterday. Natural hot springs from geothermal activity - shallow, but perfect temperature with a clean sandy bottom (the tub not me LOL). Had a couple of hours here [/QUOTE

I only washed my feet in it!

Re: Missing Anything?

I absolutely love living aboard 6 months of the year, no TV, limited news.

'Just wish my wife could let go of all the land traps... friends at work, 5 cars and a 2500 sq ft basement full of stuff, so we could cruise full-time.

I'm sure there are others that do the same thing, but I like mine fine.

Though I do like a desk top computer, little big for boat use.
+1 on this. I have the same thing....and at half the cost of a comparable iPad.

Re: Missing Anything?

I'm very pleased with my Toshiba NB305 ... it has an eco-mode (basically, it shuts down the computer faster when idle and dims the screen) but what I like best about the eco screen is that it shows actual watts used. I'd figured from the brick that I was using just less than 3 amps per hour but that's not the case. According the eco (which does not include charging battery but since we are plugged into the house bank via a cigarette lighter, there is no batt charging taking place) ... anyway, on standard I use between 15 and 19 watts, while on eco mode I use between 11 and 16 or 17 watts.

Just an aside -- and yes, I am anti-Asus (warranty issues/hassles and two clunkers in a row -- but the price was cheap, and not even worth what I paid!) ... am back with Toshiba and glad of it. The only thing I'd like better is to have the wattage displayed down on the task bar. Maybe with Win8 that will be available.

And what I miss? Long hot showers and water (lots of it) with just a turn of the tap (no filling up tanks) -- oh, and flush toilets are a spiffy invention.

I miss having my dog next to me. That's all.

A friend of mine uses this http://rainmeter.net/cms/

I don't use it myself but take a look

Med moored (anchored and stern tied to a rock on shore) in Kolona Bay, Kithnos, mid western region of the Aegean in the Med. In the photo below, our boat is marked with a blue arrow and the hot springs have a yellow waypoint. Its easy to either walk around or take the dinghy over.

Had a super yacht with 14 guests briefly come to visit "our" hot tub yesterday. Like NornaBiron they only briefly dipped their toes in before being take back on board. Alone here otherwise. Had a few good evenings

Its blowing 30 knots from the south at the moment, so will have to skip our spa tonight.
