Thanks SD, I will try and get one in place before the offshore leg.

rockDAWG,

I too am anxious about the temps. It snowed here last nite, just a dusting but, an eye opener on getting going.

I have an uncle in St. Michaels who is hoping I swing that way anyway. If you are up to 'roughing' it on a small old boat then I would be happy to have you along.

:-)

I made the trip the other direction last year on April 1st. A mustang survival suit which is much like a snowmoblie suit made the over night trip very pleasant.

I just got back from a trip from Hyannis to Cape May. I can't do it this weekend, otherwise I would help. But looking at the weather, Thursday and Friday will be OK, but Sat to Monday is not the best. You may need to wait until next wed for the long window heading south to the Cape. Just err on the safe side.

Sun Mon Tues

Everything about early next week looks better -- warmer temps, calmer seas, west winds. Sounds like a fun (but cold) trip. Are you going to move to Sandy Hook first? What is your plan -- leave mid morning?

Agreed. Rain and wind on the nose the next few days into the weekend.
Where are you anchored, moored or docked in NYC? I ask because I am in lower Manhattan and might be able to swing by and visit you. No promises that I will be signing on as crew but it would be fun to meet you and see your boat. Older Pearson's like yours are like 2nd cousins to my 1967 Tartan 27'.
My best.

i'm moored on the transient ball at 79th.

I was going to move down to atlantic highlands in sandy hook friday? then wait till sat or sun for taking off.

I'm going to try and get a auto-helm overnighted so i can have it installed for the outside run. especially if i have to go by myself :-(

i'll pm you my cell #. I'm in manhattan today getting lunch & a trip to west marine for boots, and ordering the autohelm.

bump.
Hey folks, I met glymroff in NYC this afternoon for an hours chat. He seems like a very nice fellow from Vermont; calm and friendly. He is doing the right things to set up his boat to do the New Jersey coast by setting up a tiller pilot on his Pearson Triton (28.5'), planning ahead and watching the weather.
If I did not have prior engagements I would love to transit the New Jersey coast with him on his way south. Instead I hope I may catch a ride for part of his trip back up north next year in the spring.
Any takers?

Thanks Caleb for your insights, and for taking the time out to chat.

I made it to Atlantic Highlands the next day, and spent a bumpy night up against the T-dock. Winds were out of the north and was pushing the boat up against the docks. Gale warnings for Monday (out of the north), broke the camel back and I decided to go down to Manasquan Inlet. I'm on a fuel dock, but on the north shore, south end of a dock, so I should be way better off than up at Atlantic Highlands.

It was a great day on the Ocean w/ 10-15kt winds and rolling seas 3-5.

I'll be holed up here probably till Tues/Weds for the storm to pass, and off to Atlantic City...

Wish me luck. Still up for crew on my way down south...

glymroff,
Glad to hear you made it to Manasquan on a nice day. I'm also glad to hear that you will wait for the Gale Warnings and SCAs to blow over before heading for Cape May or Atlantic City.
How did the tiller pilot installation work out? Was it useful so far?
Are you using some kind of heating for the cabin at night?

I'm still hoping someone may want to join you for the ride down the Chesapeake, if you are going that way instead of outside. There are lots of sailnet people on the Chessy.

Thanks for keeping us posted as you make your way south and good luck. I hope we can meet up for a leg up the east coast on your way back up in the spring.
