    We are about to sail to the San Blas Islands off Panama, in a week or so. The recommended charts for the San Blas are Eric Bauhaus digitized charts. These charts are to use with open CPN, which I don’t have on my IPad. Could someone help us out by emailing us a copy that will work on an IPad?

    yeah... is hard to keep track on exactly where to get a hold of you... profile comments or just email is best... good news on your engine and fuel fix. WHERE are you? We are flying in tonight and doing the sea trial Sat 13th... we anticipate all with go well. and close soon after we arrive back here in Idaho. The broker will take Cheers over to Snead for dry storage, or we may choose to leave in slip there. sixes on cost due to haul and launch.. we do need the PSS shaft seal done, and the propeller is way dirty.
    As far as taxes and such... we are getting the Coast Guard Documented vessel, and a 180 day florida permit. cost about $400. gives us until January to get up the coast to GA. or further starting next October.. Yes on BBQ as is kind of our plan also. and mac and cheese... canned stuff. anyway... send pics on email of where you are at. I will do the same. I know we will eventually hook up near chesapeake or on a trip to bahamas/bermuda/whereever.

    we are flying to florida on thursday. seatrial on either friday or saturday. it just might happen that we get the boat. if we do, we will take it over to Snead Island and have the PSS shaft seal done and some other minor work. we are having the standing rigging surveyed independently.

    hopefully you are back on track with your daughter onboard and easing into sailing.

    i am wondering on the provisions, what did you get that you really like and what turned out to be a mistake (if any)... thx in advance...

    Just told my wife that you were headed out an she was envious. She wished we could tag along.

    Rejected boat. Getting deposit back today. That broker was Preferred Yachts.

    Guess what. We went to Whiteacker Yacht Sales in Palmetto and made offer on a boat. Still Catalina 350.
