Thanks. I missed that and didn't re-read the posts. I'm betting Joe is find the Chessy a much nicer climate than last he was there. Spring winds should be nice for the next month or two, then it will get hot and humid.

Yes, enjoy the Chessy before what some locals call the "shake & bake" season starts.
Come summer, the lack of wind, power boat wakes and heat combine to form the "shake & bake" sailing season.

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

I used to sail the Chessapeak. Got tired of not seeing the stars at night, for all the humidity in the air. Give me clear starry nights, a slight breeze and some slight humidity.

Regards,
Brad

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

I've been back aboard now for a month or so.
I really enjoy my boat,even with it's shortcomings,
it's definitely the life for me. I have not had doubt just
re~stating my happiness with my situation.
I love sailing, it never gets old.
we sailed to Tangier on mothers day. met some other sailors aboard
a wood cutter from Maine,always great to hang with like minded sailors.
they were a young couple who spent the winter south.
Today I'm on the eastern shore, hoping to enjoy fthe soft shell festival in Crisfield
then sail back to Tangier or Smith Is. monday,weather permitting.
look for me if you are in Crisfield today I'll be wearing a captains hat with Smith Island,MD. on the bill.

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

The Crisfield softshell festival was... . ok. I had a few crab sandwich's
,not as good as my own cooking, and there was no mayo.
How can you have soft shell crab and not have mayo?
That's just wrong.
Tomorrow,god willing, We will set sail for Smith Island, just a short hope
of 10~15 miles. Looking forward to getting off the dock and being underway again.
In the morning I hope to repair the leach of one of my headsails.
hope for fair wind.

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

great sail to SI . my daughter at the helm most of the way. Had some good soft shell last night for dinner. fresh is always the best. It was a clear night and I did some star gazing.
I'm hoping to cast off in the next few days for Tangier, having a great time sailimg the bay.
looks like another beautiful day again today.

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

Interesting. Different from what you set out for. You found something you really like. Makes me want to put my Catalina on the trailer and head over there to see what's up. Post some pictures of the area if you can.

Any plans to head back to NY?

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

sal, you hit it on the head. I'm asking myself why I should ever go back.
last weak I bought a place on Tangier to use as a supply and tool depot. Acouple weeks back I got a slip on the Eastern shore of MD. to have a place to park a vehicle and a dock. I've been sailing about and don't care to stop!

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

I'm either on to something great or I've gone insane.
I keep telling myself I need to go back to NY, but at the same time wondering why I should.
