You have just got to keep that blog going.* Great photos and such a great cruising area.* Sites a great and the food is wonderful.* Just about everyone has used the 1210 training chart that makes them familiar with the area.* Love it.

Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

I wish I had started a blog for our trawler when we first bought her. Oh well. Better late than never. I love writing and posting pictures so I hope to update it regularly. I've been using blogger for a long time for aspects of my work but I am looking forward to using it for "fun" via the new blog I created today:
http://trawlerlivinglight.blogspot.com/

Most of the pics you all have seen here on TF! lol

The way to have almost any text translated into almost any language is to access Google Translate (http://translate.google.com/). Either copy/paste the text or enter the URL of the web page in question and hit the Translate button.

This is what came out when I translated my own blog.*

The translate mechanism will not offer you a fluent English text, the text will be somewhere between word-by-word translation and fluent text. The dictionary is not exhaustive in any way. Unknown source words that cannot be translated will just filter thru unchanged. Like "Geartrøbbel" (which translates to "gear box trouble").*It will still give you a pretty good understanding of the original text.

The Google Earth insert contains the actual GPS track from our 5 week transit.*Updating the track on a daily basis*on my blog was somewhat fiddly. (Switch output format on Garmin GPS from NMEA to Garmin format ->*Download track file*from GPS to PC -> Switch output format on Garmin GPS back to NMEA ->*Convert Garmin track file format*to Google Earth .KML format on PC*-> Upload track file to GPSVisualizer -> Download GPSVisualizer HTML -> Edit GPSVisualizer HTML -> Paste GPSVisualizer HTML into Blogspot).*I will start looking into an easier way to keep the*track updated as we cruise.

Also coming up for this*season is using my new Android phone for blog updates. Just started experimenting on this.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

We have a website, more for documenting the restoration of our boat than our travels.
We did the same thing with our last boat which, when it came time to sell her was the best advertising tool*we could have had.
I also found that documenting the work on a regular basis was a great motivator to keep at it, sometimes when I didn't feel like it! - Boyd

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

AS I don't have a boat (yet)* I don't have a Blog for her and her travels.* I do however keep up with WAY too much info on trawler blogs.* There are many different ones out there from the rich and famous - Ken & Roberta Williams (creators/founders of the Sierra-Online Software company) who are on there second Nordavn (see www.nordhavn68.com) and a wonderful blog about a couple from Kansas who own Eliana, a Nordhavn 76 (see www.eliana76.com).* I am more keenly interested in families cruising more modestly so you can find some on www.trawlerblogs.com) in fact you can find more than you have time to read.* The guy who put it together says he was tired of doing what I do looking for blogs and has created a pretty neat way to look at a lot.* He's even got a way to look just at blogs about a particular brand of Trawler.

Okay I've said enough.* Tony send me a pm and I'll give you some other Family who are cruising blogs I've found.

OK so how does one blog?

Can you give a site to go to?


I would love to try it out.

Someone else has already posted a weblog host site (blogspot) - there are others but that happens to be the one I use.* Something that I have found useful is to use an offline writer so I don't have to be connected to the web while I am writing.* I use Messysoft's Livewriter but again there are other - my wife uses something called Wordpress.* I doubt it much matters what you use, it just makes life easier to use something.

I don't have a blog, as I don't have a boat yet, but I found this website to be helpful in finding other blogs about trawlers and cruising...

*I'm thinking Skinny Dippin' will have one by the end of the weekend!* I keep a paper journal on the boat that I update every visit...cruising or not.* So I should be able to at least recap the short cruises we've done so far.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Here is a link to the web pages for our trawler.

The main item for right now is a set of hyperlinks related to our delivery trip in May of 2010.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

I don't have blogs but I did (in a series of 6 posts) tell the story of our trip north on our (new to us) Willard 30. It's in Voyagers and Other People on the go under the thread "A long way home". I have 5 or 6 photo albums in Face Book and you're welcome. I may need to change my security choice to let you into the albums.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Dave,
Your Pilgrim trawler is beautiful. I've not researched them a lot but the lines of the pilgrim's are at beautiful combo of serious, beautiful, sturdy, and whimsical. Those aren't exactly marine architecture terms but you get the idea. Scrolled through your delivery blog and enjoyed it and your pics!

Eric- your link won't let me view any boat albums???


Baker/Doug, I vote this thread be made a sticky so we can always find our fellow TF bloggers.

RE: Do you have a blog for your boat/travels?

Tony I agree but to save space (if that's an issue) just a list of the blogs all numbered and hyperlinked and ready to go would be even better. We've just got to find something for our moderators to do.

I don't have any photo album that is strictly a boating album. I've got the pics mostly captioned so you know what you're looking at and if you're curiosity goes further than that please ask me. People mostly are interested in Alaska and to satisfy that curiosity I offer my albums to you. There are 6. I recommend the albums "Daily pics sorta", "Alaska Reflections" and "Wall Photos". I need to know though if you (all) can access these photos. Please inform.

I have a TON of pictures....It's going to take a little while to get the last year and a half summarized with the pictures, but I was pretty happy that I was able to upload that picture of the New Bern Waterfront as my background!*
