Frank Virgintino, author of numerous Free Cruising Guides for the Caribbean, has been working on qA Thinking Man's Guide to Voyaging Southq for almost a year. Roughly 200 pages long, the Guide addresses everything North American sailors need to know to get to the Caribbean safely through a discussion of various routes from North America to the Caribbean as well as a discussion of the entire Caribbean - which the author breaks down into four quadrants. The author hopes that the Guide will allow for a clearer understanding of the entire Caribbean as well as the various routes that can be employed. Not only does it cover routes to the Caribbean from N. America and cruising routes around the Caribbean, it also looks at all aspects of preparation, weather and Gulf Stream information, safety and security and local knowledge and advice imparted by someone who has cruised the Caribbean extensively for many years.Today many cruising boats carry a tremendous amount of electric capacity or ampere-hours4 in their banks; usually as 12 volt or 24 volt systems. ... On average they will put out 75 or more amps; some put out 150 amps at the high end.
