"Robin, I very much appreciate your sentiments, and especially your own story of struggling to get out of the USA. I do have a very difficult time of conveying my thoughts.  Actually, I'm not at fault for that, as my disabilities only…"

Greetings fellow sailors.I am curious to know if the broader sailing community would have an interest in or thoughts on a community-owned boatyard in Baja Mexico.  This is obviously going to cater primarily to those who cruise from the West Coast of the USA and Canada, but it will of course be used by anyone who comes to the Gateway to the Sea of Cortez.Here is the situation.  There are presently no "decent" boatyards in La Paz.  There is Bercovich, which is probably the most respected, and no…See More

"Relying on the words of others or websites to determine if a captain is safe or not is a bad idea.  This is something you need to do on your own.  The reason is simple:  people are not honest.  You could get great recommendations…"

"There are two major possibilities here, and they likely overlap. First is fatique or other failure of the shroud.  Have the broken element inspected by a metallurgist (ask a surveyor or a metal shop) to determine the failure, and then inspect…"

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website. Thank you, Andrew
