That's the consensus for Solomon's. It's quaint, but that's about it. The people of the island are also very aware of who is "native" and who isn't. Some families have been there for generations.

Sorry to hear about your mishap on Smith Island, but glad it turned out well!

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Today,we met the folks who own the dock that we are tied to , as we were not introduced initially when the procurement of berthage of our vessel was arranged.
They are none other than the proprieters of "ruke's Seafood deck". Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
We have repaired their dock back to useable condition in the last 2 days and now it is occupied by us, and today another 40' sailboat arrived, that was able to visit the Island.
Due to the downturn in Crabbing and Oyster fishing these folks depend more and more upon visitors. Glad I could help sustain that opportunity a little.
We Have also agreed to photograph the damage their bussiness suffered due to Sandy. So we'll be here for a few days.
As a result of the storm there is plenty of wood for the wood stove.So we keep warm.
Smith Island is a very unique place steeped in history and a serious step into the steady rythym of Island life in the Chesapeake. And as it is the fall- things are settling in quietely, in preporation of the coming winter months.
Accordingly I have been dubbed winter dockmaster at ruke's dock,Smith Is.,MD.

Joe, hope you're enjoying Smith Isl ... are you staying the winter???

I was wondering the same thing. Personally, I would want to at least be south of Georgia by the end of December.

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

We hadn't really planned being here as long as we have.
But we are! It's atough place to want to leave.
A nice easy pace.just what we like.
My only concern is ice and the operation of the Dismal swamp or the locks on the VA. Cut
I HOPE they are not seasonal.
Here we are still doing clean up work and enjoying Oysters,blue crab,and clams.
I am hoping other sailnetters would visit.
Plenty of dockage.

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

JOoe most of them have put their boats away for the winter and winterized. Most dont have onboard heat like you do. We are starting our process this weekend and gettibng stuff of the boat and winterizing all the frsh water systems, anchor wash, changing the oil etc, etc.hoping for one more sail on saturday.

Next weekend I plan on getting the sails off///and putting the cover on her in the water. My wife is busy redoing all 36 interior cushions.

Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Glad to hear you're having a great time there!

Random question - do you have a picture of your stove setup? Wood stoves are my favorite heat.
