Yeah so true. That's why I come and visit you guys every summer where its cool. The tradeoff is Its a great place to sail in March and April, October and November when you guys have your boats on stands.

Air is so thick with humidity July and August you can eat it.

Plus, you know the forecast 90% of the time: winds light and variable in the a.m., becoming South, Southeast in the p.m. 5 to 10 knots, chance of p.m. t-storms.

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

"It's breezinG' up"
Sailed to the eastern shore yesterday and my slip
was "occupied" so I tied up on the face of the T dock on my p
port side with my stern to the west and the bay.
now I'm referring my laxness as the weather is on my square stern, it sucks.
I should know better. being lax or lazy has no place aboard a sailing vessel. hope it
moderates soon. tomorrow I turn around and tie alongside on the stearboard like I should have.
Another sailing lesson from the university of hard knocks

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

blowin' a gail yesterday when we returned to the boat.
The marina owner was out in the dock standing next to the silverton motor boat that is in my slip as I'm tied to the end of the tee.
The sky was about to bust open and I went aboard to get rain gear for the crew and myself. the crew was waiting in thetruck. I came in deck and got out a couple more linea to double up the dock lines.
When I was tying in my dock lines the owner cussed me for not helping him with securing the silverton!
I took the high road and shrugged it off. Afterward he sheepishly apologized.
I told him if he needed help in the future he should just say so, I'm not a mind reader, and some people don't want help.
I pride myself on not needing help. when I do,I'm not shy about asking.
Some folks are funny.
hope the wind moderates , would like to get to Tangier.

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

The guy took your money, sold your dock to someone else , left you in the lurch and then cursed you for not leaving your boat and helping him?

I would be wary of this dude in the future.

I so want to be out there with you. I'm tired of putting in a patio behind the house.
