These web pages are designed to be
available online before charter and on an on board tablet when
on the boat.
Welcome aboard! Cassiopeia is an excellent
choice, no matter whether you are serious sailor wanting a boat
that performs well, or a group that included individuals who are
sensitive to cold and motion. The deep keel makes for a
stable boat, and the enclosure windows can be adjusted to
provide shelter and comfort for all aboard.
Set up on cool days or evening and early
mornings, the enclosure makes the cockpit a comfortable gazebo
for meals and socializing outdoors with protection from wind if
desired. In mornings, the enclosure warms up as soon as
the sun comes up, making early departures on cool or rainy days
much more pleasant.
The purpose is to familiarize captains
and crews with the boat and area in advance of charter and to be a
searchable reference while sailing.
Please read or skim through the various
before you sign out, and ideally in the weeks before your
charter. They provide a self-guided tour of the boat
from stem to stern, and covering most of
you need to know before or during your pre-charter examination of
the boat and a reference during the charter.
Checking over the boat should take
about an hour. Once you have finished, Cooper dock staff will clarify
any questions or uncertainties you may have about the boat.
Don't hesitate to ask questions.
