Issue # 257 Ocean Navigator September-October 2019

Issue # 257 Ocean Navigator September-October 2019

In this issue's Special Section on Safety we look at how staying safe while voyaging involves many factors from avoiding bad weather to fire safety to wearing harnesses and PFDs in rough conditions. In the first story we'll hear from two voyagers who used their radio and their medical training and experience to assist in a carbon monoxide poisoning on a nearby boat. Our second story reviews voyagers' choices in harnesses and tethers. We look at she of the features and offer info on how to pick one that suits your needs. In our Power Voyaging column we consider prop shift alignment. ABYC master technician Steve D'Antonio discusses the importance of having a power voyager's prop shaft and set up properly to prevent vibration and other problems. In our Ocean Voyaging section we have a story on worst weather passages. A circumnavigator describes two of the worst stretches of weather she and her husband experienced on their voyages: A nasty storm off the Cape of Good Hope and a series of gales that hammered them in the Arctic while sailing off the Alaskan coast. She relates the experiences and tells what they learned about dealing with bad weather. In our Voyaging Tips section a liveaboard voyager discusses what to look for in anchor swivels and how to use them properly. And our Celestial Navigation series has part eight on this still useful navigation tool. In this installment we look at running fixes and the relative value of various types of LOPs and fixes. Plus, the Nav problem and much more.
