Issue #228 Ocean Navigator September 2015

Issue #228 Ocean Navigator September 2015

A special section on practical weather includes reports from two voyagers on their experiences gathering and using weather data offshore. One story describes obtaining weather updates via satellite communicator while in a North Atlantic storm. The second account revolves around voyagers in the South Pacific searching for the right weather window to sail to New Zealand from Tonga and describes boat's that left early and were caught in a massive storm. In this issue’s ocean voyaging story a seasoned offshore sailor describes his experience getting mauled by square waves in the Gulf Stream. Also included are tips from trawler specialist Jeff Merrill on how to keep your power voyaging vessel's electrical system in top shape; a voyager describes how he splices a common “sprinkler” timer into the hose from a shoreside water source to prevent a broken element in the fresh water system from flooding the boat; a story on how to check your boat’s standing rigging before an offshore passage; a witty story of a lost dinghy and more.
