    From a recent weather seminar this message from Ken Campbell captures the ideas of planning for a passage or even a coastal cruise.

    Yes Dave.... a regular. And a healthy interest in weather planning. Got hooked a few years ago. Now, It is a regular thing. Love the way Ken has 40 years of observational knowledge and still sounds amazed at the concepts and events that occur.

    He also sounded amazed at some of the decisions sailors make about the weather and weather routing.

    I've been reading AAC for a couple of years and had just finished watching the video.

    I enjoy John and Phillis’s writing. I found them in 2014. John posted a public message on choosing a boat. It happened at the same time I was considering a boat. When I read the suggested idea, it opened my eyes to how I was applying car buying skills to this boat buying project. I chose a new path and 4 months later found a boat that I would not have even considered initially. Perfect... no but boat is a compromise.
