"I'm coming home. I've been away too long. Been away so long. I'm coming home" – Ian Thomas, in Coming Home

I still recall my road warrior days. It seemed like every other week, I was hopping on a plane for Orlando or Vancouver or Palm Springs or Washington or Chicago or Toronto.

It might not be Rome, Paris, and Monte Carlo, but Washington, Toronto, and Orlando are pretty classy places. I went to crucial meetings. I was an important person. I was a frequent flyer.

However, after a while, all the towns begin to look the same. One airport hotel looks amazingly like another. Surely the taxi driver in Washington and the taxi in Orlando were twins separated at birth. I was yearning to just stay put. I had had enough of hotels and restaurants

Traveling sounds glamorous until you have to do it over and over and over. Especially when you have a family, you want to spend some ti…

Traveling with a pet involves more than just loading the animal in the back seat and motoring off-especially if you will be driving long distances or plan to be away for a long time. If you're planning to take your dog or cat with you on your road trips this summer, there are some important safety tips you need to consider before you hit the road.

Best Travel Tips on How to Travel Around the World Safely

Best travel tips how to travel around the world safely are explained well here.
ARE YOU PLANNING A VACATION? IF SO, STOP AND READ OUR TIPS TO MAKE YOUR TRAVEL EXPERIENCE A GREAT ONE! Don’t be a victim of Lost Luggage A heads up to all travelers out there that have had the unfortunate luck of having their luggage misplaced.: I have found the cure for you. It is a relatively new service called EZFind, which issues permanent labels and tags that you can stick to your gear. In the event that you lose an item of yours that has been tagged, whoever finds the item can call their toll-free number, and your missing luggage will be returned to you at no additional cost. This new system also provides protection against identity theft, as there is no personal identifying information on the tag.


Airports are joining the cause finally by tagging your luggage with RFID chips, which can help route luggage to its proper destination and track the ones that become lost. However, few airports currently …

Discovery - Sailing Story by Dave Chamberlain

Discovery by Dave Chamberlain

Every time I push off from the dock I enter the magical world of discovery.  I learn something new of the weather, nature, my boat, the sea, and myself.  Discovery is the reason I sail.  There is always something new that causes me to wonder or smile.

Recently I prepared for a quick sail and overnighter to “Dave’s Harbor”.  Is it legal to discover and name your own anchorage?    Twin-keel sailors find new anchorages that only we use because other “normal draft”’ boats can’t  get into them.  I glided into “Dave’s Harbor” at high tide.  The anchorage is hidden deep in south San Diego Bay, behind a bird estuary. It is close to a power plant that causes the water temperature to rise a few degrees in the area.  Finally anchored behind the dike which protected me from the northwest breeze,  I settled in my easy chair while watching and listening to the nesting tern protect its eggs from the aggressive seagulls.  After a filling dinner, I g…

Blue Water Essentials in a Small Cruiser Passage Preparations for the Vivacity 20 Part 3

Blue Water Essentials in a Small Cruiser Passage Preparations for the Vivacity 20 Part lll The Standing Rigging by Dave Chamberlain

Back in 1986 on a crisp spring Saturday afternoon on San Diego Bay,  I was racing my quarter ton racer (a completely reworked and raced-out Venture 21.  “Havilah” had just rounded the downwind mark and was clawing toward the weather mark with a single reef in the mainsail and a 120 genoa.  She balanced perfectly in the fresh breeze and she was leading the race.  I was on starboard tack concentrating on the genny’s  tell-tales trying to keep her in the groove when abruptly...Bang!  Slam! 

There was a horrific onboard explosion. My mind raced.   Could I smell black powder from a cannon fired nearby?  Was San Diego under siege?   No, the lower shroud turnbuckle had violently and suddenly given way.  The mast groaned and bent over 50 degrees and was barely held by the starboard upper shroud.  The mast step was badly bent and the mast its…

Blue Water Essentials in a Small Twin-Keel Cruiser Passage Preparations for the Vivacity 20 - Part 2

Blue Water Essentials in a Small Twin-Keel Cruiser Passage Preparations for the Vivacity 20 The Hull: Part 2 by Dave Chamberlain In sunny Southern California, we have an invention called the "earthquake-proof building." It's true. We have buildings that have been proclaimed "earthquake-proof." Whenever I hear of another one of our newly designed and built structures so dedicated, I laugh out loud at the arrogance. We all know that if the earth started rocking and rolling at an exponentially increasing rate, eventually every building would come down... "earthquake-proof" or not.

Even though I've seen the movie "The Perfect Storm" several times, I still believe any owner of a small twin-keeler can modify her into a solid and safe blue-water vessel. Seaworthy enough to take on the ultimate wind and waves depicted in the movie? No, but stout enough to make seasonal, prudent ocean passages, while taking on the chin the occasional gale that i…

Blue Water Essentials in a Small Cruiser - Passage preparations for the Vivacity 20 The Hull:  Part 1by Dave Chamberlain 


Some would contend, and maybe rightly, that preparing a twenty-foot coastal cruiser for an ocean passage is ludicrous.  My wonderful wife, Eva, might have, at one time, shared that opinion.  I believe, however, any owner of a small twin-keeler can modify her into a solid and safe blue-water vessel.  The most vulnerable feature of trailerable cruisers is the swing keel or fin keel. These flimsy appendages were not designed to withstand the rigors of a full gale for days on end.  A twin-keeler is different.  It is built to completely support the hull's weight, not only in the water but out of the water as well.  How many trailerables could bounce up the highway at 55 MPH with the entire weight of the dry hull falling only on the keel for support?   Most twin-keelers (especially those made for trailering) are more than strong enough for passage-making.
