Re: Using sun panels as a bimini????

Re: How many vacume the bilge?

Re: How to leave

Spices will degrade pretty quickly if it's hot on the closed-up boat. Flour, sugar, baking powder (and anything containing any of them) have to be TOTALLY sealed from moisture in the air as well as...

Re: Recommendations Please?

Take a look at some catamarans. I'm not good on knowing catamaran makes, but I've definitely seen a lot that are "big-dog-friendly" both for getting aboard initially and having no companionway to...

Re: Tool Kit for cruising

Sereh's stubby multi-bit screwdriver is another definite!

My husband picked one up for $1 after he had all his "good tools" packed up and on the boat, and then we needed to fix something back at...

Re: Tool Kit for cruising

A couple things that we used WAY more than we dreamed:

Re: RO system+Ice Maker+Ice Box= Efficient?

Definitely not efficient. Refrigerators are much better. The Engel portable and drop in units get really high marks for both efficiency and dependability from all my readers that have them. And...

Re: Pacific or Atlantic/Caribbean?

I haven't cruised the East coast, so can't talk about that. But we cruised the Pacific coast of Mexico and Sea of Cortez for almost 7 years and absolutely LOVED it. Sea of Cortez in the summer has...

Re: Getting discouraged

Re: Cruising Florida Panhandle

Thanks for the info on mast height -- I'd been trying to find that! How shoal a draft do you need to really cruise that area? I know that you CAN take a 6' through there, but won't be able to...

Re: Book Recomendation

I've honestly never seen the second one, and it's an import and there are no reviews on Amazon for it. No description or anything, so I'd say no to it unless someone else posts with more info on it....

Re: Condensation on Refrigertor Cover

Re: Buying bulk food/supplies

The number one rule in provisioning is to "try one first." And there's a lot of dehydrated food that's just not that good, so do be sure to try it before stocking up in bulk.

However, after...

Hi Mike!

Unfortunately, I don't have an ETA for the Nook and iTunes versions. The answer from our publisher is that they "are tweaking the files" to get them correct and it will be "soon."
