March-April 2016

In a special section on communications, we look at short text messaging by satellite as a useful way for voyagers to stay in touch offshore and when in foreign waters. We also highlight the new HF-SSB Coast Station operated by the Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA). In our Ocean Voyaging section we have a story on cruising the Guianas Rivers, in French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana. For power voyaging enthusiasts, trawler expert Jeff Merrill explains why regular engine room inspections are important and tells what to look for when performing a check. A Coast Guard officer and recreational sailor explains how the Coast Guard uses checklists to make sure all systems are go before departing on a passage and why this is a good idea for the smooth operation of your boat. A voyaging sailor describes the various levels of redundancy he has built into his cruising catamaran, from multiple anchors to chart plotters to engines. We also have a story of a voyager's near miss with an Indonesian merchant ship and how voyagers can go about filing a complaint with the IMO and the owner of the vessel. Finally, a circumnavigator lists all the gear and materials you need to have on hand to make line splicing easier. Plus, the nav problem, Chartroom Chatter and more.
