Three days aboard Sandy Hook –  This couple from VA met us at TrawlerFest Baltimore wanting to learn about the cruising lifestyle. Look at them living the dream

Tennessee River to the Bahamas-  We’ve just returned from Rogersville Alabama where almost 250 loopers or cruiser-wanna-bes meet, learn, party then move on down the Tennessee River on the Great Circle Route. Captain Chris Yacht Services took a virtual trip and presented BAHAMAS BOUND: DESTINATION ABACOS.  Here are some photos of this great gathering. We are REALLY Bahamas Bound on a KK58 sometime next week. We will wait until the Gulf Stream lays down after Tomas passes.

Keepin’ it working with Captain Chris

  • Easy as 1-2-3 It’s a well charged battery! – Don’t be caught without your MOJO. Battery power makes us happy cruisers when everything is fully charged. Here are a few pointers for easy battery maintenance.
  • Circuit Breakers and Fuses Did you know that every electrical item has a dedicated fuse to protect that item? Just because you see the circuit breaker you may not see the fuse or even have a clue where it is located.  Here are a few tricks to help you follow the current path. 
  • Diving on the Oil Rigs with the Associated Press– Thanks to Chris’s sister Cindy for these terrific photos of the artificial reefs in the Gulf of Mexico. Things are looking better.

Hurry Home Hurricane Season  No, we don’t mean hurry to OUR home…just go away and don’t come back! Hurricane Richard wallowed around in the Caribbean and then Sharey, now we watch Tomas growing into something powerful.  Really? Hurricanes from Africa THIS time of year? And a “T” storm? We’re in the home stretch of another busy tropical season so Contact us if we can help with your Hurricane preparation plans.
