NOAA Tides and Currents – tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov

SailFlow ‘ weather where you sail’ – www.sailflow.com

  •  Nice to see wind predictions and patterns.  Helpful in planning a trip and to review how the larger weather pattern interacts with Puget Sound’s many channels, bays and coves.

Magic Harbor –web.archive.org/web/20040919110718/http://donberry.com:80/harbor2/harbor2.html

Northwest Pottersnwpotters.org

  •  Another group of small trailerable sailboat owners … this one made up of folks owning the West Wright Potter (aka, ‘The Potter’).

Small Craft Advisorsmallcraftadvisor.com

  •  This is the www-site of the magazine of the same name.  The mag is a great resource for those that like trailerable boats (focus on sailboats).  I am a writer for SCA and am the designated ‘keeper of the calendar’.

Trailer Sailortrailersailor.com

  •  A great site for general information on trailerable sailboats of all types.

The Simple Sailorthesimplesailor.com/index.html

  • Site by “Roger Taylor, skipper of a little junk-rigged Corribee called Mingming. This is my website. Only time will tell what it will be about, but initially it will be about Mingming, her voyages and the principles of Simple Sailing that underpin my approach to ocean voyaging.”  Roger has now published two books about his small boat travels, Voyages of a Simple Sailor and Mingming & the Art of Minimal Ocean Sailing.  Both books are entertaining reading.

Keep Turning Leftkeepturningleft.co.uk/index.php

  • “[T]he story of one mans slow odyssey around the UK. 30 months of sailing has resulted in travelling from the Isle of Wight to Wells in North Norfolk – so I am aiming for one of the slowest circumnavigations in UK history.”

ShortyPen’s Saiboat Pocket Cruiser List – www.shortypen.com/boats/pocket

  • The most comprehensive list of small ‘cruising’ sailboats I have found on the internet.  “There are many pocket cruiser sailboats that have almost no representation on the internet. Some were only manufactured for a few years and then the design was discontinued and others had their companies go out of business. This is my comprehensive list and directory of all the fiberglass production sailboats that have a cabin with a door or drop boards, are less than 20 feet long, less than 8′ wide, and weigh less than 2000 pounds.” 

Boat Owners Association of the United Statesboatus.com

  • Overall a good site for ‘boat things’.  Focus is powerboats.  The Association’s boat insurance provides great coverage at very reasonable rates.  When I shopped for Sweet Pea’s insurance I found BoatUS costs to be 1/4 other insurance companies’.

Bearing Buddybearingbuddy.com

  • These are a must have for your boat’s trailer.
