No mystery there Scott. Just click on her avatar, select send private message to member, and follow the prompts, as is the usual way.

Hi PeterB,


Yes - there is a mystery there -- for me, at least.


That's the first thing I tried for sending a PM to Yahoo1, but the "Send a PM..." is not among the few options shown for Yahoo1. The "Send a PM..." options is there, as usual, for any other user I try clicking on. I also tried going into Yahoo1's public profile page, and there is no possibility to PM there either...at least that I can find.

Wifey B: Question to the OP.....

What boating can now be done in your area? What are the restrictions?

« Following the Government announcements on March 30th and May 3th, 2021 and as reminded by the Ministry of the Sea, please find below the current rules applying:


There is no distance limit anymore between your home and your boat. Once on board, there is no distance limit at sea too.


Sailing from harbor to harbor is forbidden between 7pm and 6am, unless you have a derogation with proof. However, anchoring at sea remains authorized.


These measures apply on the whole French territory.


For any particular case, please contact your local port authority. »

Wifey B: The EU pass for visiting and cruising is scheduled tentatively for sometime in June and we keep hoping so we can visit France and Spain and elsewhere. We did just receive great word regarding Italy that in Mid May it will open for all those fully vaccinated. We were already scheduled to fly to Italy on the 17th, arriving on the 18th and they did just announce a pass will be available mid May so sounds like good timing and instead of just anchoring and returning to dock we'll be able to visit some different cities. We'll be there for about two weeks, then our hope is to return and spend most of the summer cruising in Europe, up to our 90 days in Schengen countries and some additional time in non-Schengen.

Just hoping.

It sounds a great plan, you will enjoy cruising the Italian riviera(s). Adriatic Sea between Cattolica and Venezia, Aeolian islands, islands of Ischia and Capri, the Med between Viareggio and Portofino, are my favorite places and passages in Italy.

"La Mer", where are you from exactly? I grew up in Béziers, probably close to where you have your boat.
Went to see a GB42 MY today, with the Galley Up. I was really set on Galley Down, for a larger salon, yet sitting, moving, pretending to cook in this one still seemed like there was plenty of living space, and the added bonus of a 3rd cabin. So, yes, keeping an open mind :-).


As to current regulations, up to a couple of weeks, we were restricted to 10 km (6 miles) around home, but luckily I live within that radius to the boat. Once onboard, no restriction. Now all of this has been lifted and we can cruise to where we see fit.

Wifey B: A month ago for a sea trial they were not allowed to go to land anywhere else. Could dock for fuel and stay aboard, but otherwise anchor or return to original port.

The big difference now is that all of us going will be considered "fully vaccinated" by the time we leave on the 17th of May. Previously the best anyone had were negative tests.

Ok, then one assumes this member has elected to remove that option in her user CP set-up. Sorry. Unable to help further on that.

Thank you, PeterB.
I now see that the "issue" was already encountered and explained in an earlier post by La Mer. Apologies that i didn't notice this earlier.

Went to inspect a GB 42 MY on Saturday. I thought I would want a Galley Down, for the added space in the salon, and this one has a Galley Up. it's much less an issue as I thought initially, and the benefit of a third cabin is there - for the once-a-year guest or most likely to store away stuff :-)
Boat is in great condition, very well maintained, with a lot of nice extras, such as an electric winch next to the windlass to help with the mooring, extra fridge, etc. However, the back deck is a bit flexing when walking on it. I did notice a couple of places where the caulking is damaged, no trace of humidity inside the aft cabin. All the other decks look in great condition, just that one. It's not a spongy feeling, just a bit of flex, and it's hard to tell if it's within the reasonable range given the surface or something to be concerned with. A survey would tell. But anyway, even though that boat is really lovable, it's just the beginning of the quest and I'm going to wait until I've seen some more for sure.
BTW, the lady who maintains it told me she runs three de-humidifiers all year long on board while the owner is away. Sounds like a lot to me. Normal proper care, or over-zealous action to prevent mold in a known-leaking boat?

Okay, looks like no one else will ask so I shall.
Is it true what they say about the French Riviera beaches?
LOL

HA HA

I will take that as a "YES".
At 78 years old, all I can do is look and wonder where these free spirited ladies were when I was younger.

That is definitely a lot. When I kept our 49' in the Med we hardly ever needed to use a dehumidifier and certainly never more than one. We are currently in the US in the PNW which is very humid in the winter months and we use one dehumidifier on a 72' boat with all the doors open it keeps up with 2 decks.

Nothing fishy about it. Don't know the specific area but better safe than sorry. We keep A/C and dehumidifiers on all the time here. I think it could just be a very diligent lady.

Wifey B: Not a lot different than South Florida, just a larger percentage topless. About like South Beach. Nude beaches still separate and typically private. Actually more French keeping tops on now for some reason, likely most protection against the sun. You should probably avoid South Beach, don't need a heart attack at your age.

I really don't understand the big issue some make about thongs and topless and even nudity. I do understand the reluctance of males toward nudity as they can't hide their thoughts.

3 dehumidifiers on a boat that size would make me suspicious anywhere. In the south of France in May!
