  • Bahamas Chatter: ““Waterproof” charts” plus 1 more

    Explorer Charts - the best charts for the Bahamas and Exumas

    Explorer Chartbooks, A CRUISERS’ NET PARTNER, has long been the standard navigational supplement for enjoyable, informative, and safe cruising through the beautiful Bahamian waters and island visits.

    Bahamas Chatter: ““Waterproof” charts” plus 1 more
    “Waterproof” charts

    Posted: 21 Mar 2018 06:53 AM PDT READ MORE!

    My Explorer charts get wet fairly often.

    Pages are ‘waterproof’ but the ink is definitely not.

    As a result, my northern Abaco charts are nearly useless, having overlays on one page and blank on the other, as the ink lifts from one to the other facing pages.

    Has anyone addressed this issue successfully in the past? Do Monty and Sarah sell replacement pages? It seems a real waste to have to buy another book for the sake of a few pages…

    Hello fellow crusiers:

    An unidentified boater from the Cruisers Net, well intentioned I’m sure, posted my letter below without my knowledge and moreover took the liberty of fictionalizing an opening paragraph. I believe many of you know that on 28 Feb, I was at my station as Net Controller in George Town…not in the land and sea park. Below is the original email letter to a friend, which I am totally happy to make public. Please feel free to copy and distribute, especially to BNT, BUT IN ITS COMPLETE AND ORIGINAL FORM. Thanks, Bill, sv CHARISM

    Good morning, Joe:

    Insofar as you may have a rapport with this man, perhaps you’d care to admonish him that there currently is NO mention of anchoring “fees” for vessels under ninety feet on the current park web site, I copied just now what is presented on that site and pasted it in at the conclusion of the Email.

    I put fees in quotes, insofar as this charge to anchor a boat within these boundaries is tantamount to extortion. In my opinion if I anchor for the night and do not go ashore, then my activity places no strain upon the Park’s services or environs. Were I even so to float in the water to view fish and coral, what rationale is there to prevent me from doing this when I have paid my entry money allowing me, as per the Commonwealth, to physically be in any Bahamian location I so choose? Any effort to extract additional money for a particular area indistinguishable from surrounding environs is extortion, plain and simple, by definition, not opinion, and I shall not support it. Moreover, I intend to publish and circulate the above as broadly as media and conversation permits within the cruising community. The response to you from Joe in Nassau reveals his selective assessment that cruiser response is favorable; he is merely promoting the sound of his choir to advance an agenda. To the contrary the vast number of folks I canvas objectively, feel as me. That without published presentation of need, financial transparency, proper notification, and responsible methods of collection, anchoring “fees” in open Bahamian waters is a sham, and the use of the Park’s good name is being exploited. Therefore, neither I nor others with whom I have spoken will continue to anchor within Park boundaries, thereby averting conflict and discrimination we feel as a result of these sad circumstances. Furthermore, some of us who have freely contributed to the Park financially shall cease doing so. This new anchoring policy is ironically exploiting the very gift of nature it seeks to protect. Myself and others like me, and there are many, shall not be a part of it.

    Please feel to forward this letter to anyone you do choose, including the Bahamas National Trust, and Exuma Land and Sea Park. I shall be doing so now to about one hundred fellow cruisers on my list.

    Very truly yours,
    Bill, s/v CHARISMA, Black Point, Exuma, 15 March, 2018

  • Lake Norman Safe Boating Classes, Lake Norman Sail and Power Squadron, Mooresville, NC

    The Lake Norman Sail and Power Squadron is a group of truly dedicated boaters doing excellent work to promote safe boating. See their website linked below for more information.

    Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron Announces 2018 Safe Boating Class Schedule


    The Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron (LNSPS) is pleased to announce its Boater Safety Education Class Schedule for 2018.


    During 2017, the LNSPS graduated over 120 students continuing sustained recognition from its parent organization (United States Power Squadron (USPS)) for ranking in the top squadrons in the nation in service to its community.



    The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission requires that “Vessel operators born on or after January 1, 1988 must have successfully completed a Boating Safety Education course to operate a vessel with a motor of 10 horsepower or more.” Education Officer, Russ Klein of the LNSPS anticipates higher enrollment driven by increasing boating injuries, fatalities and law enforcement presence on the water. In addition, the population of boaters required to have taken this class grows every year, thus increasing demand. Parents and children (at least 10 years old) are encouraged to attend together.


    Although we are offering fewer classes then in 2017, we have arranged venues with increased capacity in anticipation of enrollment reaching 200 students.


    2018 Class Schedule:

    Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church (Parish Activities Center), 537 N Highway 16, Denver, NC 28037

    Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Mt Zion United Methodist Church (19600 Zion Street, Cornelius, NC).

    Cost is $45.00 ($25 for those sharing a student manual) which includes the Student Manual, classroom instruction, exam, certificate, laminated photo ID, reporting & archiving course completions and lunch. Registration will commence on February 8, 2018 and early signup is encouraged due to space limitations.

    All classes run from 8:00am to 5:00pm

    You must register (after February 8, 2018) and pay online at 

    For more information email or call Russ Klein at (704) 651-9361)

There are over 40,000 registered boaters on Lake Norman. Taking this free and short VSC examination that is only reported to you as a boater will make your water craft a safer vessel for you, your passengers and fellow boaters.

    Coast Guard seeks comment from public for Miami Grand Prix of the Sea

    MIAMI — The Coast Guard seeks public comment on rulemaking for the Miami Grand Prix of the Sea on or before April 2.

    The U.S. Coast Guard announced public comment opened on March 2, which was published in the Federal Register of a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) to establish a special, local regulation for certain navigable waters of Biscayne Bay in connection with the Miami Grand Prix of the Sea. READ MORE!

    In addition, the Coast Guard will conduct an environmental analysis and review to comply with National Environmental Policy Act and other laws.

    The NPRM seeks to establish two regulated areas, a safety zone and a no-anchoring zone, within certain waters of Biscayne Bay and Miami Marine Stadium basin. The safety zones would ensure the safety of vessels and natural environment before, during and after the scheduled event. The marine event permit is still under consideration.

    The event is scheduled April 21 through April 22, from 8 a.m. to 5p.m., and consist of offshore-style powerboats and personal watercrafts, which will race inside the Miami Marine Stadium basin.

    Approximately 90 participants are scheduled to race in this event.
