Chef,
Has your Hunter friend tried an anchor riding sail? My boat loves to sail at anchor so I purchased the Findelta anchor sail from Banner Bay Marine. Easy to rig, and as soon as it's rigged, she quiets right down and is completely docile.

Have a great trip!

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Dave,

Dumb question on the Cape May canal. Is the swing bridge generally open? Looking at next summer's trip already!
Have fun!

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Good to hear that youve gotten off with a great start! I just finally got my own boat finnished, bottom painted and zincs installed yesterday and dropped in the water. Took her out for her first sail since all the work I did on her past 2 years and she performed gresat and was so comfortable with all her new amenities!! Please stay in touch I would love to meet up with you in Mattituck and or Greenport by boat or by foot...I have my shop in Southold and so am a short distance from both. I may even leave for a short vacation myself if I can finnish a few jobs and clear some time. For now, continued fair winds to you!

That's good info. I have always avoided Mattituck with the sailboat, remembering how shallow it used to be. It used to be iffy with a 3' draft. Mattituck is the only possible bail out point in long stretch to Orient so having it as an option is good news.

It wasnt so much the need of a riding sail, they are great. He was anchored in a 3 Knott current which took precedence over the 20 Knott wind and chop. The current force his stern to take the waved head on. Hunters have wide asses and big swim platforms. He had s large profile facing the wind causing him to swing wildly

Riding sail woulnt help.

Ah, makes sense. I have never tried using a kellet and have heard mixed views on their usefulness. What's your strategy in deploying a kellet (as it seems to have worked well for you.)

Left Cape May at 0400 for the trip up to Barnegat. Nice S breeze at 12 knots pushing us along at 5+.beautiful sunrise. Saw our first schoool of dolphins a few minuttes ago and the sw with us for 10 minutes. Trailing a fishing line maybe catch mahi if llucky. Only happened once.
Chip, are you out this weekend at Meyers Hole in BB. If so wed love to raft up with you and Jen. We bought some outstanding tuna and sword in Cape May, though the Tina may be sushi for lunch.

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

We anchored at Atlantic Highlands in June on the way to Connecticut. It was a nice anchorage behind the breakwater.

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

Good to hear you had a great sail up to Barnegat.
Just back from Fishers Island myself, thought it might be of interest, in West harbor
most anchor NW of green can # 7 but can also anchor in closer south and a little west of
green can # 7 with good holding in 10-14 ft of water.
Also just 6 miles away is Napatree/Watch Hill...the approach thru the channel is worth it,
anchor on the bay side short walk over the dunes and swim in the ocean.
Watch Hills Olympic Tea Room good seafood, but also must try new twist on fried
zucchini...very different and good!
If your stopping at Old Saybrooke well worth while to go up river 6 miles to
Essex and/or continue on to Hamburg cove, crowded but worth a look and no more than another mile or two past the rock faced hills on the east shore.
