Every morning Leah and I listen to the local cruisers net. This is a radio show where the cruisers in the area will discuss weather, share stories about recent experiences, announce new arrivals or departures, solicit information about the port, request assistance from other cruisers and sell or trade extra items that the don’t need. The last section is sometimes called treasures from the bilge. We have heard outboards, golf cart extra batteries, a sextant, spare inclinometers, an 8 year old boy with a bad attitude 😉 maps and cruising guides. We recently made use of this service too, guess what we got rid of.
