Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I really gotta move!!! With 3 feet of ice and nearly as much snow-cover, I can only dream of working on the boat for now.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

Went sailing yesterday on the Rappahannock with my wife and son. Nice sailing weather, although still a bit chilly. Here is my 2 and 1/2 year old son steering like a champ:

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

Yeah, after sleeping on it -- and feeling the soreness from over exertion -- I've decided its just not realistic to have the boat ready in two weekends especially since the next one is looking cold and rainy.

We called and rescheduled for the 3rd week of April. Kinda' sux, but I know in that time I can get all my punch list items done (exept for bending on the sails) and be really ready to start sailing and enjoying the boat with no maintenance chore immediately hanging over my head.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I'm still in the water, but in order to sail I need to install my new impeller, replace a short section of cooling water supply hose, and pop on the new alternator belt.

The list of "want to do" work is:

Install autopilot
Install the new standing rigging
Minor fiberglass repair work

People are gobbling up all of my free time in March. I'm going to have to put my foot down in April and focus on my needs instead of others.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

Will you be installing the standing rigging yourself? Are you following a guide? How will you do that?

I will get a friend drunk enough to climb up the Pearson's mast, and have them plug it in, one piece at a time. I will attach at the bottom.

It's just lower shrouds so far, so no big worries about the rig tumbling down.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I'm demasted with new rigging coming together, so I'll probably not make it in until mid April. Very excited though - new jib furler, new Tides Strong-Track, new mid-boom sheeting on a bridge traveler, raised boom up 6", and a new stackpack. Oh, I have no more budget left ... it is good that wind is free.

Practical Sailor never gives it very high marks, but this is my fourth season using West Marine CPP ablative. I've really had good results here on the upper Chesapeake. I've also been using Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier (the one that Chef mentioned). It's only a fraction of the cost of SpeedProp ... and I think the results are fairly good. I haul out every winter ... so my performance time horizon is just one season at a time, but I think the CPP could go two seasons with respectable results. West Marine CPP is actually a rebranded Petit from what I understand.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

Both sides and aft buffed out shiny you could shave with it. New vinynl graphics not in yet Boat U. S. Graphics said they sould have arrived by now but it went USPS so I might regret not going UPS, Boat U.S. said to call them Thursday if I don't receive them by then. removed old pin striping and waiting on that too. Once the pin strips and vinyl graphics (Name & Port) are applied I can give it a few coats of wax. Changed all anodes to aluminum alloy. need to scuff & paint bottom, adjust dripless shaft coupling, and a few other minor things and we're ready! Oh yeah, I almost forgot to change the gear oil in the outdrive! (Just a joke for those who read my Zinc vs. aluminum anode post)

You will like your new Tides Strong Track. We installed one 2 years ago when we got our new Quantum full battened main. You can pull the sail up 3/4 of the way witout a winch and when you release it at the nd of sailing it comes down so fast it could knock you out.

Good luck with it. We found it to be a great improvement.
