Very true... I keep the halyards tied off a good distance from the mast whenever possible. Hate the noise of the halyards slapping... and one of my neighbor's doesn't... and some nights I'm tempted to go over and remove his halyards for him...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I cant stand the halyards slapping the mast. Worse yet is the lose PVC pipe in my mast that makes a pretty nasty noise. Try and guess how hard it is to fish a peice of line around 1-1/2'' PVC though an opening in the mast for a halyard to run through.

Yeah, one of my neighbors can't figure out how those bungees got attached to his halyard to pull it away from the mast!

Cool - if there is transient noise I'll be okay - I'll go down Friday night then - that way a lot of questions I have on rigging, navigation, etc. can be answered as we're hanging out the first night. Too bad it wasn't this weekend with the great weather finally.

The trip is leaving from Rock Hall, MD (just north of Annapolis) - long range weather report is:

Fri nite: cloudy low of 51
Saturday: mostly cloudy high of 68 low of 50
Sunday: partly cloudy high 69 low 55

Low winds all weekend which isn't good though, but it looks like decent weather as of now.

Now the only other concern I have - and you guys are most likely gonna rip me a new one, so I'll prepare myself - my cat - I've never left my cat alone for more than 36 hrs and I just moved into a new place. Sounds stupid, but I take her camping with me rather than leave her alone - okay, I'll shut up now.

Thanks!

By arriving the night before you get to interact with the others and see if there any problems that could terminate the cruise. This way you or someone else has a chance to go home without taking a bus from a different harbour. Or if your realy bad "walk the Plank" and swim for it.

Kernix,
A very minor point, but considering there will be 6 strangers trying to sleep on a 34 footer, arriving early may also provide a better chance of calling dibbs on a decent berth. Last guy usually gets crap, like the short & narrow settee by the head, or reefer.

Leave the cat at home, relax and enjoy the weekend. BTW, I also have tinnitus - but more of a stereophonic hissss than ringing. I think I'd go crazy if things sudenly went silent.

5 strangers - 6 total - I can't get out of work until 5:00 or so - if I get the worst spot, so be it - I'm the rookie anyway.

The cat has me p-whipped no pun intended - just her being lonely in a new place - I have to learn to let go.

Yeah, extreme quiet kills me

Kernix-

Time to take Kitty to a kennel... She won't like being on a boat with five strangers... and I'm sure they don't want to spend the weekend with a cat.

Kennel? for a cat? uh-uh, fill the food and water bowls, make sure the litter box is clean before you leave and a cat's good for a week or more. That's why cat are better

My favorite cat left alone story is one my friend told me when he took his then fiancée out for the weekend... he had been working on his computer, upgrading most of the components, and left the case partially open. Apparently, his cat decided to piss all over the interior of the computer... so when he plugged it in and turned it on... some really fragrant smoke and sparks came out of it... needless to say, it was all trashed...
