Circumnavigation of North Atlantic in
40 Caliber LRC
I’ve been sailing on and off
for fifty years, but seldom out of sight of
land and never days from shore. I believe I
was subconsciously working my way up to a
trip just like this when I purchased my
Caliber 40LRC. It was reputed to be, and I
have confirmed, an excellent blue water
boat. In years past I have made the usual
pilgrimages to the Florida Keys and the
Bahamas, but I knew that this boat was built
for the long haul and just crossing the Gulf
Stream was not challenge enough. I was
shorting myself, and the boat, by not
treating her to a real adventure.

As A Preferred Jumping-Off Point for The Caribbean

an excellent jumping off point for your cruise south. It's actually
only a few nautical miles further to travel from Beaufort, NC to
St. Thomas (USVI), than it is to travel from Miami, FL to St. Thomas
(USVI), due to the eastward projection of our coastline. In fact,
it is considered to be one of the best departure points due to location
and logistics. Additionally, the Abacos (Bahamas) are due south
from the Beaufort Inlet. Read

Fuels and Marine Engines
You, too, may soon be running your boat's engine on fatty acid
methyl ester. On what?
The environmental movement and the high cost of oil are
generating new energy solutions. Biodiesel-- the street name for
what your chemistry professor would call fatty acid methyl ester--
may be workable for you. Whether it came directly from soybeans
or corn or from discarded restaurant cooking oil or grease that
was refined, these alternatives may hold the key to reducing our
dependence on foreign oil.
