My brother bought a 1976 Columbia 8.7 sailboat and is in the process of refitting the ship from top to bottom. The ship’s user manual is about average for information and help understanding the ship and the electrical schematics are pretty good however the plumbing schematics are a waste of paper.

If you are going to be sailing on the east coast you need this resource. The Waterway Guide comes both online and in the book form.

There is no difference between a Tourist or Explorer. Tourists are the largest group of Explorers. Most people have some curiosity in them, the question is how much. My definition of a Tourist is not based on attitude or appearance but how a person travels. I have played the tourist role at some points in my life. Tourists rely on agents to plan their adventure. The degree of danger or difficulty has no bearing on the adventure or the Tourist classification.
