Our home port is "Salvador da Bahia". It is a 4.9 million people city with a beautiful bay. In this bay there are 52 very important weekend spots. For a year at least, there's no need to leave the bay to have lots of fun. The problem is that in Salvador, there are only 365 days of summer per year.

Fernando: It's a great home port to be from. We were fortunate to spend 2 months there in 2004. The cruising in the area was fantastic as were the people and the city.

No boat here yet, but hailing from New Iberia Louisiana. We're husband and wife, and a six month old Airedale terrier (see profile pic). We're looking into buying a trawler yacht and travel all over the place with it in our spare time. And now we're on this forum and read all the stories from everybody, get distracted by travel blogs, and seeing pictures... owning, driving and spending time on a trawler looks even more fun than we already anticipated. Can't wait!

Dauphin Island, AL is a barrier island at the mouth of Mobile bay. gulf to the south, mobile bay and tombigbee river system to our north, and intercostal waterway to the east and west. Can be shallow in places but our 4.5' trawler depth is still not a problem. Several good anchorages on the north side and a beautiful anchorage in a deep water well protected cove on the south side behind the Isle Dauphine properties association. There is a marina here as well with fuel. Will be starting loop from here in late October.

Our home "port" is Signal Mountain, TN where, until recently, we sailed on Chicamauga Lake.



Our port away from home for many years has been Charleston, SC, where we sail, fish and generally go native.



Our goal is to have one of these (or something like it) and visit ports all over eastern North America.

Home Port. Whittier Alaska Prince William Sound.

Whittier is just the port in The most beautiful place in the world. There are thousands of secluded anchorages and historical places. Lots of commercial fishing going on. The shots of the Time Bandit of deadliest catch fame are when they were acting as a tender. Using big vacuum sucking up salmon into there crab hold. When not crabbing the boat does other things. That boat works all year.
The skipper swapped me a nice silver for some shrimp.
Nice guy's.

My home port is Holdfast Bay, which is in Glenelg, (a suburb of Adelaide) in South Australia.
The area has a Mediteranean type climate similar to Southern Italy or Spain, which of course makes for a great wine producing region.

Our small marina has quick access to the St Vincent Gulf via a small lock. Crusing destinations within relatively close proximity include Kangaroo Island, Yorke Peninsula, Port Lincoln, & Coffin Bay.

The only sizeable protected water in the area is the Murray River which is navigable for 2000 km (1200 miles). I am still trying to work up the courage to cross the bar at the mouth. The seas can get nasty in these parts, especially venturing outside the gulf, but the rewards are worthwhile. Unspoilt beaches, great fishing, uncrowded anchorages; I love it.

My home port is St. Petersburg, FL. Our boat is berthed not too far from the north end of the Sunshine Skyway. We are just off the ICW and have quick access to Tampa Bay, Egmont Key and Fort Desoto. I've been cruising the waters from Tampa Bay to Anclote Island off Tarpon Springs for most of my life.

My home port where I liveaboard my C Kip 40 is Poole Harbour on the south coast of the UK. Poole is reputedly the second largest natural harbour in the world and contains 5 islands which combine to make it a pretty much all weather cruising ground. There is always somewhere to shelter from the wind. The is a fabulous diversity to the harbour in that one side is urban and a working port and no more than a mile away behind the islands you could be in a wilderness. It's ideally located for exploring both the Solent and the Jurrasic coast (google them for more details) but more often than not I will just pop out under the two lifting bridges, that separate my marina from the main harbour, and drop anchor somewhere tranquil where I can happily stay for several days. I love to drop a kayak over the side and explore all the creeks and inlets leading off from the main channels that cannot be accessed by larger craft. Care is required in navigating the harbour as the average depth is reputedly a mere 18 inches so you have to have good local knowledge to stray from the main channels and its a common site to sea an embarrassed mariner waiting for the tide to come back in. Fortunately the bottom is pretty soft all over so rarely are boats badly damaged. I patrolled the harbour for almost 10 years so have as good a local knowledge as any which means I can seek out the even mor secluded spots where others may fear to navigate. That's not to say I don't wake up with the boat at a funny angle room time to time as she takes the ground but with my long keel and the harbours soft bottom that doesn't concern me unduly. I guess my home ports only real drawback is the unpredictable British weather! But when it's good it will rival anywhere :-) Struggling to get the pictures to upload but there's loads on the good ole Internet!. Iain

The largest lake in WI. Fed by the Fox River flowing south to north to Green bay, home of the Packers. Then to lake Michigan, Up the St. Lawrence seaway and anywhere you want to go from there. Unfortunately I have several years (that's wishful thinking) to go before retirement. So I'll just hang out here for awhile.

Ocean Side Property

I have been off this site for a while because of being too busy. We finally moved into our Oceanside Property this summer.

In this picture it is the house with the Red Roof. I pulled my boat up last week and it is the one sitting between the house and the garage. On the other side of the garage is my BIL's boat. Where the brown equipment shed is located ( just in front of my boat and behind the little white shed ) will be where I am going to place a Cafe. It looks funny that our wharf is empty but it sure is a nice sport. All summer we had whales, dauphins and even Salmon breaching the water while on the deck having coffee.

In a few years this picture will have a Marina in the centre of it which means my property will be on the outer edge of the Marina.

Anyway this in my Home Port

Our marina is great! Facilities are terrific, management is the best, social activities year round....better than a yacht club.

Perry's Yacht Harbor in Isleton is our current home port. 5 hole pitching course is a favorite amenity of our sons. Covered and enclosed berths to keep the suns rays and trail dust off. Little bit of wildlife to make it interesting ain't bad either. Even a few cabin tents for our guest use too. Serenity is the primary selling point, that and mirror calm water as you could secure a 40' boat with 1/4" line in our harbor its so calm in a heavy blow.

Landlocked in Missourah for now and maybe forever.
Scout is on the Lake of the Ozarks 75 miles from the house.
The 'Lake' is privately owned by a utility company, 95 miles long and 1200 miles of shoreline. Gets a little crazy in the summer but the other 9 months it's a great place
I spent a large percentage of the summer on the lake driving other peoples boats. My post retirement 'Captain' business is alive and well and kept me busier than I wanted all summer.
For that and other reasons, Julie and I decided to put down some roots at the lake. At least for the next couple of years.
We lucked into a great FSBO place with a 'cruiser dock' for Scout, a nice small cabin for more amenities at the lake, and enough waterfront and property for a nice home if we decide to go that direction. Deep water and protected (no-wake) cove and privacy. Dock is 3-well so the Whaler will be there on a lift soon. And.....room for another boat! Julie is saying 'no, no, no' but she loves boats so maybe.
We'll miss SOME of our current marina neighbors but having our own dock and place is going to add to OUR boating pleasure.
More work...but I'm retired right.
