Actually, el poo poo ca ca is generally referred to as Captain Tourettes in coastal NC.

I am just a laid back sailor from Wrightsville Beach NC, not related to cs or heard of Captain Tourrettes.

Maybe he's legit. In that case, I have a no poo poo ca ca suggestion, stay away from the reef and all those uncharted coral heads.

I can't believe it! I actually stuck a butter knife in an outlet when I was about 6 years old. I didn't feel a thing, but it took to big chunks out of the butter knife!

So true, RMT - some are just dicks!

I don't know whether to take a bow or slink off into the corner. Anyway, I'm not sure if this thread has been hijacked or not, so just building on the butter knife with a BS theme, I'm sure someone deserves posthumous credit for that spark of ingenuity that lead to the invention of the electric knife.

I'll take a bow for being nuts. I'll stay in denial about the other one.

Plenty of others!

HEY! Why do I get the blame? BB and DP (and even you) were at it long before I chimed in! :p

Carry on!

Too much to list here, when you get your chart briefing from TMM they'll tell you about all of the good places to head for. Lagoon Caye is one of my favourite anchorages, Caye Caulker is worth an overnight stay, lots of great restaurants. Front side of St. Georges is nice and if you run up between the couple of little islands on the north side (in the dinghy) you'll find Miami Beach which is a vast expanse of white sand bottom 1' to 3' deep with decent waves for body surfing at times.

I will take blame with that name the guy just didn't sound legit. SimonB being the decent guy that he is has posted a very appropriate response.

Why, that's quite gentlemanly of you, BB!
Personally, I still think he's a troll if for no other reason than his listed occupation. :rolleyes:
Simon will have many extra jewels in his crown! smile

Thanks SimonB, Unfortunately my sister El do-do pee pee was washed away from New Orleans during Katrina. All that was left was corn and peanuts. Looking for a good itenerary from San Pedro to Placencia. Not a kid/butter knife and a elect. outlet. Maybe a donkey or a midget. really, any good info about sailing would be good. Thanks
R.I.P El do do pee pee

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/13/06 07:28 PM

Thanks for your help, Just wanted everyone to know I am not a ghost or have bad intentions. I take sailing trips to different areas of the world three times a year. I know this is the best way to get "local" and current information.
How many days is needed to enjoy the trip from san pedro to placencia. any other info on bars/ food good anchorages on the way south would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/13/06 07:42 PM

Your best advice will come from the experts at TMM
Posted By: SimonB

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/14/06 01:43 PM

As I mentioned before there's just too much information to provide here. I used to do the chart briefings for TMM and they take an hour or more to go through all the places to see, things to do and anchorages to use and avoid. Relax it'll all be taken care of when you arrive.

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/14/06 01:49 PM

Thanks, They want us to do a one way (San Pedro to Placencia)in 7 days. Is that enough time?

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/14/06 02:44 PM

TMM won't steer you wrong. They're good guys!

Poo, don't mind the flame retardents here that give out such unwelcoming vibes. They are leary of anyone new near their Belize info food dish.
Good luck on your trip.

Re: Bareboat sailing from San Pedro - 04/14/06 03:18 PM

Here are a couple of links I sent to my friends who did the SP to Placencia sail last summer. TMM does a great job with the briefings/check-out. Also, SimonB is "the man" for provisioning in SP. You'll have a great time.

Nice ship's log with links to way-points.

7 days is plenty of time, we used to do it in 12 hours when moving the boats between bases to give you some reference of the distance.
