Re: 2012 Sailing Season

We spent the weekend sailing, spent last night on it and today started to winterize. We will haul out Friday. I had a hard time leaving the boat today, We're really happy with our new to us boat.

Swamp,

I might of missed it. What were the results of going up the mast to fix the jib halyard?

Got out again, yesterday afternoon. 20 solid knots, reefed main and #2 jib. 6.1 knots SOG close hauled, and 7.5 kts off the wind. Helm balance was perfect and the boat sailed at a comfortable angle.

Giddyup!

Hi Chef,
All is fixed! The halyard that was put on by the PO was 1/2" vs. the original 3/8" so it appears that they decided to run the halyard out one of the larger top sheaves instead of the lower smaller sheave, the line then ran down the mast to a fair-lead and then out to the top drum, all this change in direction was binding the line. zz4gta offered to come look at it, he came early Saturday morning, climbed the mast, fixed the problem and my Wife and I were able to spend a nice weekend sailing! I was very impressed with
zz4gta and have his information on record for future use.

We're in the process of winterizing now, this is more painful than closing the pool. We're eventually going to have to move south...and here is the plan...Around this time of year, get on boat, put stick of butter on galley table, head out of Rock Creek, turn right, at 7ft. Knoll make another right, placing the big "S" in front of the compass continue until that stick of butter melts! This would happen probably in about 12 years and yes we're serious.

Re: 2012 Sailing Season

Cool...Glad to hear it was a simple fix. ZZ4ga has always had knowledgeable posts and ggod to see hes a nice guy too. Naybe we can convince him to come up for the Rondevous at MYC in June.

We still have a month to go before winterizing. I actually like sailing in the cool fall weather better than the early spring. The sky and leaves are so nice and the lack of idiots out is amazing.

Re: 2012 Sailing Season

Yeah, it's nice having the bay to yourself but I prefer it warmer, maybe if the days were longer it would be much nicer. We have to Winterize now since the weekend after Thanksgiving is the start of deer rifle season, our marina stops hauling out December 1st, I'm in the woods every available moment during that time. I would like to do the Christmas parade though, we used to do that when we had our cabin cruiser, it was fun.

Re: 2012 Sailing Season

Got out on Friday for a few hours of sailing on the Severn - the wind, when it filled in, was around 10 knots, I guess. It felt a bit chilly when the clouds moved across the sun, but I'm sure come March this same temperature (50s) will feel quite warm.
