We sail Full Moon, a
Catalina 34. Most of the time we are in the
Albemarle Sound. We have taken her to
Bermuda and on offshore coastal passages. We
have also crewed on Caribbean-bound boats.
This web site is an attempt to record the
many helpful things that others have shared
with us and those things we have learned the
hard way about long distance cruising and
ocean passage making. Safety, navigation,
weather and crew considerations are
discussed. Modifications we have made to
Full Moon are described and detailed in
photographs and drawings. Our passage making
checklists are provided in Microsoft Word
and PDF Format.
