We are leaving from New Port Richey around the 2nd of June to go to Bimini. We are going to spend a few days in Key West and then head up to Marathon and cross from there as we did last year. We will most likely be "around" Bimini for a week (13th of June) and then heading back as I can't get enough time off to do the Exumas again this year. (all subject to change based on WX)

We have a 5 year old girl who would love to have some company then.

Brian

Hi Brian,
I can't seem to PM you so I'll post here. Is your boat in NPR or on the East Coast?

I don't care much for the IPCC. Lots of politics and not enough science IMO.

Thanks for that detailed cogent analysis of the scientific merits underlying the IPCC Reports.

IPCC - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The IPCC is a scientific panel created by the UN Environmental Organization (UNEO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), whose role is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
Once every five or six years it issues a report summarizing the current status of research on climate change.
Only inasmuch as the subjects of debate will be possible solutions, distribution of the burdens and the structure of the future, can the IPCC be viewed as a political entity.

My apologies for the rant.

Unsupported & simplistic sweeping generalizations particularly infuriate me.

Hey Kristin, I will check my settings on the PM, but we and the boat are in NPR.

I should have admitted ... especially when they don't support my own emotional biases.

Well, thanks for that Gord.

I have some references I have read in the past that support what is my opinion of the IPPC. They are somewhere. If you insist I may be able to dig them up for you but I would rather just state my opinion here as the great debate is on another forum and that subject I cover there.

Besides, I have a new-to-me boat and now have less time to sit at this computer waiting to be called out to work. Instead I am reading manuals and making lists of things to do with the boat to make it "mine".

Is that OK?

I agree with i2f. If you have kids and limited time, children of all ages would have the most fun in 2 or 3 weeks in the Exumas: giant iguanas at Allen’s Cay - eeeeewwwwww!, swimming pigs at Big Major Spot, the grotto and party town at Staniel Cay, the park at Waderick Wells, and if you have time, George Town - probably the cruising sailboat capital of the world.

Anyway, here..........
