Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Enjoying a great trip so far. In Cape May tonight...then off to points north Sunday. Met another T37 owner at Utches today taking pretty much the same route. Had a great combination of sail and motor down the Delaware Bay today.

Last evening we anchored inside Reedy Island. Athe low tide we saw we were a bit to close for comfort to some old pilings and move the boat a little east of the shore just south of the cable area. It should marked on the charts but I didn't see anything. Could have mucked things up for us, beware. I will try to remember to post a photo.

Cheers

That's a real consideration. The size, weight, and maintenance of a liferaft are all big negatives. Also, in a pinch, people may deploy a raft too soon. I have one but would sure like to have the space it hogs up and not have to re-trim the boat according to where its weight happens to be. Then again, as a last resort, as the boat went under, it would be really nice to have:-)

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Made our first sail in the Atlantic as a family aboard this boat...and what a perfect day it was. Cape May to Barnegat. I made a major goof coming through the inlet, with a 20 knot south wind gusting higher we turn to port and set the main sail without the preventer and a large roller caused an accidental jibe which tore our main (which is fairly old) along the lower seam. Oops! We reef today since there's going to be winds in the high 20s all day so I think we just push forward to Liberty Island or Atlantic Highland.

Prior to the inlet at Barnegat we enjoyed an awesome day surfing the waves often in the high 8s and the GPS shows we hit 10.9 at one point. The kids are having a blast as are we even with the minor set back with the main sail. Kids got to see dolphins and we hooked a good sized something but it snapped the lure and ate half the other...from a distance it looked like it could have been a tuna?
Everyone is having a blast...great experience for all of us with some lessons learned along the way. The boat is loving the ocean...I think she is happy to be back :-)

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

I'm sort of averse to sailing into inlets for that reason. Making the turn in with 20 knots wind if you are constricted can be stress inducing so I will just motor in.

There was a pretty nice south wind yesterday for you and it looks to continue.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

The winds have been ideal for us...it's been a long time since I have sailed in the ocean I forgot how much I loved it. We're in Atlantic Highlands today and hope to get our sail repaired tomorrow. The kids have been so awesome, not once have I had to remind them to clip in when out of the cabin...in fact they seem to have more confidence and comfort wearing their harness and tethers.

Tomorrow we"ll take a ferry from here into Manhattan and be tourist, going to surprise one of my former students and have lunch at Cafe Boulud where she is currently working! Hopefully we'll get the sail back in a day then onto the East River and west!

Cheers

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Oh... And a huge thanks to Tempest/Jim for offering to help us get the sail to a nearby loft for repair, hopefully just a day? Also to chef2sail/Dave for all his insight along the way via text and also to Auspicious/Dave for his expertise and help with the CP install!

These are just a few examples of why SailNet is such a great community!

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Hopefully by now your mainsail is repaired and your good to go.
If any further/ongoing sail repair needed, have friend on City Island who
has made sails for national loft, will make your repairs overnight if needed for
extremely reasonable cost.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

North Sails in mansequen (sp?) fixed our sail in 2 hours today! A huge thanks to Jim for taking his time to drive me to the loft and he even dropped it off for us while we were being tourist in NY. Saw Danny Devito and Rhea Pearlman while we enjoyed an awesome lunch at Cafe Boulud. Got to surprise my student and she was floored. The food was incredible but that goes without saying
