Beautiful CanadaRanger Tug 31S in front of Chrome Island, BC

I am new to boating. Bought a 2019 Ranger Tug in April followed by taking a short boating course and headed out. Spent from late May to early August in the Canadian Pacific north.
Will be shipping the boat (only ten foot beam, hence able to trailer) to Tennessee next month to start the Great Loop.

I hope you like this pic of beautiful Canada.

Pause for a moment and ponder this question. How much is your life and your safety at sea worth? Most people would say priceless and impossible to put a value on. And yet many people seem to misunderstand the worth and principle role of a marine surveyor, whose very job it is to ensure your safety at sea by surveying, inspecting and reporting on your expensive, potential new purchase. Instructing a marine surveyor to work on your behalf should never be seen as a distress purchase where price is the all-important factor, rather it is an essential requirement.

Excess 12 and 15By Kieran Flatt

Catamarans have many advantages for cruising: more space, more speed, no heeling and a more comfortable motion. However, many experienced sailors find them less rewarding and engaging to sail than a monohull. That isn’t an inherent problem with multihulls, though. Rather, it reflects the fact that most cruising cats built in the last ten years have been aimed primarily at the charter market, designed above all to be docile and easy for novices to handle.
