With my boat finally in the water and everything seems to be working I am going to spend Saturday sailing and maybe some Sunday. I have "projects" to go around home. Its a shame the weather brakes so good during the week and T-Storms for the weekend... Memorial Day weekend seems to always be a disappointment weather wise. I can remember too many Mem day weekends spent in the cabin listening to rain on the deck...

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.

Well this too is my first weekend on the water this season. Mandolin was on the hard for a month getting her bottom repainted and polished up. Regular off season maintenance and now she is ready to go! So are we! We are meeting our friends in Eagle Cove and then spending the second night up in the Bodkin. Not far distances but if the weather holds as predicted, we will spend some time just sailing around north of the bridge. This schedule leaves plenty of time for visiting with people who we haven't seen in a while.

From the sound of it, we will not be alone out there. There looks to be lots of other boats the forecast sounds like the weather will be better than the usual Memorial Weekend forecast as well. That will bring more people out. Let's hope the winds materialize!

Have a great weekend! See ya out on the Bay.

Tod

This is just awful, I'm gonna sound like such a snob ... but ... we try not to go out during holiday weekends when the Bay is so crowded. I'd rather anchor out on say, a Tuesday or Wednesday and have the Bay to ourselves. We're watching the madness from the security of our slip.

In any case, Dan starts sailing with the Naval Academy Sunday - local sailing for a week, then leading a Delmarva the next week - going clockwise LOL.

Haeding up to Whorton Creek on Saturday and maybe Swan on Sunday of the weather looks like it will hold for Monday.

Last weekend replaced the holding tank, all new trident 101 hoses, new toliet, mascerator, and placed a ball valve at the out hose of the tank to keep the refuse in the tank until pumpout time and none in the hoses. The boat sure smells a whole lot sweeter.

Three weeks ago we replaced our batteries with 6 new 6 volt AGM Lifelines giving us 660ah (400usable) and a truecharge2 40 amp charger, and xantrex echo charger for the starting battery. All projects are done now except one, installing an new autopilot.

Its time to sail now. Will sneak down some weekdays to installthe device.

Chef, May see you crossing the bay.


Dave
