You don't expect good steak on the coast anymore than you should expect good sea food in Montana

Yep, it's still in business, though I haven't been there in a while. Do they still serve those (delicious) pickled green tomatoes?

We left NYC just after Sandy and we made several stops (3 days or more). We were in fernandina Beach on Dec. 31st. Here are two articles about our adventure: NYC to Hampton,VA and Norfolk, VA to Miami, FL.
Hope it helps!

Hi Scoob, Your Canadian friends here from Black Diamond! Just found your thread on the Forum.

We made Non-Stop from NYC to Georgetown Exumas Bahamas, 1,200 miles in 6 1/2 days non-stop offshore. Many 200 mile days and one 250 mile day.

Glad you decided to stay in shore before the cape. Glad your free of the wrapped prop, and your all safe and sound.

Our average speed was about 9 knots, many sustained speeds of 10-11 knots, and our top surfing on this trip was 15.5 knots. Our boat has hit 19.5 knots surf before.

I was running SPOT tracking on my blog, had not updated the blog yet, but will in the next coming weeks...

We were anchored out, enjoying the sun, 90 degree weather and warm water for the last 5 days. The boat is now on a mooring ball in a hurricane hole, and flying home tomorrow. mission accomplished.

Will fly back Dec 15th for 3 weeks, Christmas and New years...

We'll do a few regattas and cruise the Exumas..

The boat will also be available for skippered charters. Anyone mention Scoob and they'll get a big fat discount!

Here is a pic of Black Diamond anchored just 30 feet of Chat & Chill Beach in the Exumas Bahamas.

.

Excellent point about any food with New York in the name. If it is there, it certainly has nothing to do with New York. One time at Disney in Florida we saw a sign that said "new York hot dogs". I thought "great, I could use a good hot dog now, this Florida food is getting me sick". Needless to say, they were liars. The hot dog was thicker than a silver dollar, and tasted like disgusting boiled boloney. I eat several hot dogs a week on many different corners of NYC from carts manned by various ethnic groups. None are thicker than a nickel, even from Nathan's. I learned my lesson about anything that calls itself New York anything. It ain't. Stop trying to copy the real thing. It can't be done.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
I went thru a tornado last night.
Or something like it. I have been in a 45 knot gust before...
Last night we went to 35+ degree heal, at the dock. No idea what the wind speed was, but 45 knots puts us at a 10 degree heal...

Perhaps now you understand that being off-shore this time of year is not for new beginners.

You should consider how you would have coped if you had been several hundred miles off-shore

possibly scoob.

a storm jib would be one option. there are others, all depending on wind direction etc. Although if it was a true tornado, I sure as sh*t wouldn't want to be anywhere near it

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
Actually I find this a great thread because many new boaters can learn a great deal from reading it.
So many people with no sailing experience come to this forum with very romantic dreams of sailing as a lifestyle. They visualize all the clear blue waters and lovely breezes of the tropics. They think it is all adventure and fun.
The reality is that there are all sorts of experiences, like weather and waves, groundings, mishaps, breakdowns, sea sickness, anchors dragging, more costly than anticipated, scary situations etc.
if this thread opens people's eyes, and makes them better aware of many of the realities that need to be considered.....it is a very good thing indeed!
I would title it.....the making of a sailor!

a tornado would have cleared the deck. I'd also challenge the accuracy of your 45 deg heel claim as you no doubt would have sustained major topside damage like bent stanchions, etc from hitting the dock and pilings.

But have fun

Sure would have cleared the decks. Not to mention possible capsize. :banghead:

+1
I totally agree on this coment
At the beginning I frankly thought that this was totally stupid
I.ve been censored by the moderators 3 times for being too harsh in my comments
But now , when Scoobert is in it up to his shoulder I'm enjoying the way he is reacting to the situations

Looks like it landed 2 miles from me. How can i check observed windspeeds here?
And it was 35, not 45. Did i say 45?

How about "Scooby, through the looking glass" or "The unprepared go into the unknown", or "Sailing by the seat of your pants, the saga continues"'

For fun, lets all give our input into what we would rename this thread.

This is an adventure from the eyes of a new sailor. The good, the bad and the ugly. I enjoy the back and forth from the posters as well as the tremendous amount of support, help and advice offered by the members of this forum.

Cheers and thank you!!
John

Joe from ny 27-11-2013 06:56

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
Yes, i must say i thought it was a hoax for awhile at the beginning. i thought "no way would somebody seemingly so unprepared attempt such a journey, putting others at risk." I was surprised when i finally believed that it was for real. it is very enjoyable thread, and to Scoob - I apologize for not believing you. Keep on keepin' on.

a64pilot 27-11-2013 08:08

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
Scoob,
Out of curiosity, how much fuel have you burned so far on this trip? Not counting eating as that is well, I think purely a variable, what have your costs been, approx?
BTW, I'm a pure wannabe myself, only have a CC dive/fishing boat myself sofar, but watching your adventure out of curiosity.

escale 27-11-2013 08:19

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
I think people are confusing 45 knot winds with 35 degrees of heel. Although that was probably a wave that made the boat heel, not the wind on bare masts.

Nice shake down cruise, I'm sure he is gaining a lot of first hand knowledge he'll keep forever. Well, he got to ride his first storm tied to a dock. Different matter when out at sea. This is not exactly a perfect vacation nor an easy ride. He made the right decisions and got to see the strength of wind and water.

When dreams meet with reality all kinds of things can go wrong, especially when handicapped with a winter season. Hopefully he will continue to push the envelop. He will manage his boat in 10 knot winds with 3 ft waves, Next time, 20 knot winds in 4 ft waves and so on.

His friends are already in the Caribbean, they definitely must have more experience. It's not always the boat, it is the man at the helm that makes all the decisions for the boat, himself and crew. It's a lot of responsibility, lives are at stake.

Practice, practice, practice.

I'd call this thread 'Touring for Fine Greasy Spoons Along ICW in November.'

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL
 
Scoob :I too had my doubts,but your misadventures have proven your legitimacy !!!
Remember; the adventure is usually not fun while you are having it.

Only 6000 nautical miles to Cape Horn remain....But only if you take your schooner down the length of the Andes;to go by water you can easily double that distance.To avoid arriving in the Southern Ocean winter you may want to cut out all these unnecessary delays for repairs,tows ,food ,fuel and free dockage. On the plus side,I understand that the winds are better there in the winter, albeit contrary.
FWIW: I have heard there is a shortcut somewhere near Panama..............
Hope this helps. Mike

I too have been enjoying this thread as scooby puts one after the other naysayer in their places by doing the deed. Great job scoobert.

I can't believe the snarkiness your voyage is bringing out in some people.

Seagull111 27-11-2013 09:29

Like Deepfrz said, were I sailing in Scooberts place I would have put several characters on ignore from about the Hudson River.it is just like the real world, some people are for you and some against you. I have learned a bunch from the helpfull folks and been mostly annoyed by the trolls. Scoobert, press on.

I have been sailing since 16 but have introduced many to sailing and it is all adventures and fun. why else would you do it. But this must be why so many sit behind there computer and learn sailing instead of the way scoobs doing it. I prefer his way
