Farthest Adventure

Just wondering what the farthest adventure people have taken from their home ports.

Researching cruising past Bahamas (maybe Turks or St. Maarten) Don't flame me, just researching.

Thanks

My longest was from Seattle to Stockton, CA helping a guy take his 57' Bayliner down there. 9 days, some of that due to weather. It was a good trip, all things considered and I learned a lot about being on the ocean.

I'm slowly building up my experience, as its big open water with few protected harbours going any distance from here.
My longest trip in this boat was Adelaide to Port Lincoln. About 400 nm over 15 days with no marinas in between.

We bought our boat near Annapolis and brought her home to Houma, Louisiana.
Down the East Coast ICW, across Fl via Okeechobee Waterway, and finally along the Gulf ICW to Houma. A very nice trip.

Hi,


Hi, traditionally our head cruise on summer vacation n. Two months live aboard and cruising about +1500 nm, but it is an island hopping and coastal riding in the Finland / Sweden archipelago. The longest one is Lubeck in Germany about 600 nm from the home port.

I really envy you. My long-long range plan is to return to the Baltic and spend a year or two in the Gulf of Bothnia.

As to the past, https://share.garmin.com/dauntless

Though it doesn't show the first year of Florida to New England, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, then all the way down tot he Bahamas, then return to Florida and Rhode Island.
At that point I got the InReach

Hi

Hi, I have read your pages enjoyed the adventures everywhere. When you visited here you missed so much, especially the archipelago of Finland and Sweden. Unfortunately, you also felt negative when you grounded in the rock in our waters.


The best time to visit here is May to August. During September move to the southern coast of Sweden coast and going to winter for perhaps Central European canals exepes there west Netherlands November-March (very affordable marina, all services). In the spring come back and look a little Denmark and look at the Swedish west coast and Norway.

You need to remember the limited time in the EU area (18 month?) for your ship or tax penalties of 19-25% of your vessel's value.

This is the best here for thousands of opportunities to find good sheltered places to mount a boat in the rock or to anchor and spend time on the beach to barbecue or explore nature. This is possible because there is no tide here.

By Badger: three weeks from Kitimat to Calvert Island and back via the mainland inlets.

By Kayak: 6 months on the coast of BC (Prince Rupert to Vancouver) in 1991-1992; 2 months in winter, 2 months in spring and 2 months in summer/fall. Done before house, child, or real full time jobs, etc.

Retiring in fall of 2020, so plan on some grand multi-month adventures then...

In our little C-Dory, Prince Rupert to Skagway, wandering much of SE Alaska along the way. In our 26-footer and in our Nordic Tug, Puget Sound to Glacier Bay and back, with many variations of all-over-the-place in between.
