I've been cruising the eastern and southern Caribbean
for 5 years, logging over 17,000 nm. We returned to Florida
last year to replenish the cruising kitty before continuing on to the western Caribbean
and maybe across the Pacific. I'm not exactly a cruising expert but will try to help in any way I can. I'm sure I'll be posting
my fair share of questions also.
I also have a web site dedicated to personal security
products for cruisers, pamcompersonalsecurity.com, that you may be interested in. Several times in our travels I wished I'd had some of these products aboard. You'll also find my blog on the web site. I'm currently posting
the gory details of our shakedown voyage from CT to Curacao
in 2001. Right now I'm sitting at the dock
so I'm really looking forward to talking with all of you who are out there cruising.
