Great meeting every one, how about a spring meet up?

Friday was perfect sailing weather 5 hrs Essington to Reedy Point, but poor time for the C&D produced a 4 hr slog fighting the barge wakes.

Left Sunday 6:00AM on the C&D ebb, got to Delware City at 8:30 AM for fuel (no fuel at Chesapeake City and no grocery store). Relaxing at the Delaware City Marina then on the river again at 9:30 AM.

Motored all the way to Essington and at the slip at 4:00 PM.

I will post photo's later.

Sorry we missed you Denise, we where at the section of the Tiki Bar over looking the town dock.

Got fuel at Delaware City fuel dock. It opens at 9:00 AM so I had time to relax at talk with the folks at the marina.

My 3 gallon tank was down to one gallon, not enough for comfort, filled the tank and arrived at Essington motoring all the way at 4.5 to 2.5 knots against the ebb with one gallon to spare.

November get together, Essington?
Its Ricks turn to organize.
The deck may be a bit chilly.

ever notice that Jersey seems to have the better coves and such? Everything is so damn silted in though.

Just back from the Delaware Rendezvous. Glad to have met Collin, Rick and Lori and Jack of s/v Dionysus. Will post some more pics of the event that we took.



The Chesapeake City Bridge the 1st encountered eastbound.



Some pictures of Chesapeake City...

The Boats...



Take Five at the Town Dock



Ulladh at the Town Dock



Virginia Dare lying at anchor in 16' depth in Engineer's Cove. (For other deep draft boats - we saw no less than 12.5' on entry over the newly dredged entrance.)



Dionysus lying at anchor in Engineer's Cove (a sister ship to VA Dare) Jack, her skipper has single handed her from Portland Oregon to Newport, RI and back down to the Chesapeake again...



The Chesapeake & Delaware Canal with Engineer's Cove shown on the right side.



The C&D Canal from Chesapeake City Bridge.



The container ship Atlantic Impala passes westward through the C&D Canal, just prior to our exit from Engineer's Cove (happy to be in back of the beast!)



Homebound - westward - Sunday morning on the flood tide.

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.

It's a pretty nice option that makes it feel like a much larger boat.

Normal headroom in the boat is about 5'8", but with the pop-top up you get about 7' over the entire floor behind the dinette. The screened windows have roll-down Eisenglass in case of rain. With a screen under the front hatch, you get excellent ventilation through the cabin with no bugs.
