Re: Boat insurance question

Reply In considering a cash versus agreed value policy recently I choose the agreed route. Depreciation on 30 year old boats could reduce the cash value quite a bit. It did not seem worth it to have to deal with the unknown of cash value if ever had to make a claim. Would guess that an unrepairable ...

Re: Cruising in Summer 2020 ?

Crossed the Gulf stream a few times going over to Bermuda. Different every time, but always a good time. Sometimes it was super flat and others were pretty rough. The lightning and squalls along the north wall were always fun. Amazing change to get in “Happy Valley” with the bright blue warm water i...

Scott,

Great that you are still able to get out and go a few places. 3 weeks sounds terrific. Definitely smart to be careful wherever one goes. Cannot imagine how hot it must get cruising in Florida during the summer. Would be cool to cross the Gulf Stream to the Bahamas.

Re: Cruising in Summer 2020 ?

Sounds like you are making the most of it given the circumstances. The Great Lakes look beautiful. Only been on Lake Ontario twice and both were fun. Raced in J27 Nationals in Oakville and went to Jazz Festival. Great regatta and hospitality. The other was a delivery from Oswego through Seaway Wella...

Cruising in Summer 2020 ?

I am wondering how this season is going for others. Obviously if we are healthy and have a boat to get away from it all then we are very lucky. But I am curious how things are going this summer on the cruising front ? Are places open wherever you sail ? Are you doing more daysailing? Do you have any...
