Small price to pay for a few weeks in the summer for the wonderfull sailing from March through December. We love the ability to take a trip for a weekend and anchor somewere nice up a small creek or river. We also like the ability to raft up with others.
So many places to visit on the Chessie with a close distance, but at the same timne you feel you got away from the crowds.
Hey when the winds stop blowing on the Chessie do like we do...head up to Long Island and New England for 3 weeks..
Rick, I can appreciate what you say about having it close by. We are 45 minurtes from our boat and go for evening sails after work occasioonally
