Colombia (Cartagena area)

Anybody got any contacts down here?

I'm bumping around the area for a few months, and need to get my decks bloody.

I'm happy to take folks out, if they'll show me the spots. Or pitch in on...

Re: Dream Trip - Sailing/Spearing Circumnavigation

Finally made it out to the boat for some sailing. Still learning, but I've got the basics down. I sailed out of Puerto Lindo to San Blas.

The San Blas islands are really beautiful, but they...

This was spot-on.

Re: Panama - Caribbean Side (San Blas)

My boat is moored in Puerto Lindo, so we'll start there and sail to San Blas.

This is mostly a sailing lesson, but I'm definitely planning to squeeze in a few dives.

Re: Panama - Caribbean Side (San Blas)

Awesome advice, thanks a ton!

I'm wavering between a speargun and a polespear for this little trip. The speargun means I have to deal with a long bag on the plane...

Re: 72" Carbon Fiber, Water Ballasted Custom Tuna Gun - $650

Tons of questions via PM, so I'll post the answers here.

Gouge in carbon tube: affects nothing. The point of a water ballasted tube is to fill with water when you're in the water and dump the...

Re: Dream Trip - Sailing/Spearing Circumnavigation

You're definitely right, and it's a real concern. The best storm prep is to not be in the storm. But we all know that's a best-case scenario.

Insurance requires you to have a very detailed...

Re: Dream Trip - Sailing/Spearing Circumnavigation

That's it, in a nutshell. In the case of cats, I think they're almost a hybrid. With twin engines that push the boat at an easy 6-7 knots, you can motor when you need and sail when you can. And...

Steve, we're on the same page man. Off the grid, away from people. I've heard convincing arguments around "trawler vs sail" ... I chose sail, for the reasons you mentioned - but everything's a...

Re: Dream Trip - Sailing/Spearing Circumnavigation

The idea is to make 5 years out of it. It's really impossible to tell at this point.

The only real plan is a trip through the Canal and across the Pacific at the beginning of 2015. After that,...

So it begins. I've been working, saving, planning and dreaming of eventually sailing around the world and spearing the best spots.

And it's now only a couple of months away. This month I'm...

Yazbeck 7MM L Titanium Wetsuit - $350

Selling my reef fins, can't fit them on the boat. They're near unbreakable and they're all I used for a long time. Super-comfortable pockets.

Online CO2/O2 Tables?

Anybody got a favorite?

Anything in particular that would be handy on one?

I'm asking as I want a good one, but also because I can build one if there's nothing solid out there.

Re: Spearfishing Gear (in detail)

Glad it was helpful!

On the gun - it was sold to me as a Steve Alexander Tuna Gun. Turns out it was not a Steve Alexander Tuna Gun.
