Issue #234 Ocean Navigator May-June 2016

Issue #234 Ocean Navigator May-June 2016

This issue's special section on weather includes a story from a live aboard voyager and former research engineer who describes tracking cyclones in South Pacific in conjunction with finding suitable cyclone holes for avoiding these storms should they make landfall. We also have an excerpt on tropical revolving storms from noted marine author and voyager Tom Cunliffe's new book, The Complete Ocean Skipper, that discusses the anatomy and movement of these storms and how voyaging boats at sea can take the safest route should they get caught in one. In our Ocean Voyaging section we have a story about a passage from Isla Mujeres, Mexico, to Cienfuegos, Cuba - how current, weather, charts and Cuban officials each had a hand in the outcome of the trip. This issue also continues our look at engine room inspections for power voyaging vessels with Part 2 by power voyaging expert Jeff Merrill. The practical side of celestial navigation is investigated by two voyagers as they adapt this venerable art for today's cruisers. We have a story that attempts to answer the age-old question "How close is too close to anchor near another vessel?" We look at textile axle technology for blocks in lieu of ball bearings. And we have the recollections of a circumnavigator about the time his boat suffered from a four-footed "guest that wouldn't leave" and how managed to settle the issue. Plus, the nav problem, Chartroom Chatter and more.
