He can always take the truck route. . It is a small boat so the cost is not as much and also don't have to stay off from work if he is working.

I would do a cost analysis to see what come out ahead. But of course, there is a fun factor and experience that can't put a $ on them.

Dawg,

I guess I was avoiding raining on the entire parade. Yes, the truck route is one thought... getting as far as you can, hauling out and waiting for spring to continue is another. The wind-chill for 15 mph winds @ 40 degrees f puts you at Freezing....... At least the beer will stay cold..

Hope you have warm clothes for your trip...;-)

Note to self: Bring a lot hot coco on board.

I'd recommend bringing a couple of knit watch caps... they get wet and soggy and you'll want a dry one... Fleece ones rock because they dry really, really fast.

The face mask and goggles aren't a bad idea...if you've ever tried to stand a watch in driving rain, you'll know what I mean...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

RockDAWG,

Bare bones triton.
GPS
Brand new RU-260
Hand held & in cabin fixed VHFs.
Radar reflector.
Main (good) w/ 2 reef pts, working 110 (blown but still serviceable, even if it should be a pillow case, 170 good, and I think its a 80 or 90 blade (excellent), all hank ons.

SailDog,

Yes I have Jack lines, and harnesses (which as a rule I use whenever I went alone or reefed.)

I'm taking the boat down to NYC in 2 wks.

Otto, Thanks for inlet info, I had heard that before from a Cap that has done this a couple of times.

Thanks all for the feedback, keep it coming.

Adding an autopilot or some form of self steering will make the trip a lot more pleasant... and far less exhausting.

Might want to keep the blade jib stowed in a sailbag on the foredeck... since when you need it, you'll need it in a hurry. It'd be better than a blown out 110 in a storm, since you'll want a sail with less area and that you can get as flat as possible.

SailDog,

Will do on the blade on the foredeck. Any recommendations on self-steering for this size boat? Are you referring to a tiller auto-helm? or a tiller-tamer?

An autohelm or tiller pilot would be a better choice than a tiller tamer. A tiller tamer doesn't compensate for wave or wind induced course changes, so isn't useful for more than just fairly short periods of time.

An ST2000+ Tillerpilot is about $550 and takes only an afternoon to install. If you do decide to get one, make a spray sleeve for it to help prolong its life.

That is not bad at all. I would consider it if you plan to keep your boat for awhile.

Let us know how you making out. As Tempest mentioned, time is the essence here as it is getting cold. I can help if you need someone from NYC to Cape May. If you take the C&D and the bay, it is easy for me since I live 15 min from the upper Chesapeake Bay.
