Sail tape is really incredible, very strong, and I've patched part of the luff on my old main with it three years ago and it's still in place.

I wish I could go with you on this one, but unfortunately, I have a music job on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, which doesn't give me much time for anything else. I'm hoping to bring my boat home from Rock Hall the following week, and only have two days to move it 45 miles, and that's if the weather cooperates. I have a 3-day slot open during the first week in May, though.

Good Luck,

Gary

Just some one to hold her steady while I do the rest. weather looks good so far. was pretty successful in stitching up my sail, after a couple repairs I got the nack of it. throw some sail tape over them, and I'll be ready to go.

So the trip was a total success this time, piece of cake! I had 2 crew with me, a friend who I taught the basics to during the trip, and a older woman that lied about knowing how to sail, and was basically helpless. So it was all up to me. Monday afternoon Hip towed her out of Crisfield with the skiff, threw up sail, got dink on board and headed north. Monday night was a hell of a rough bay, long story short I slept about an hour. No line guard on the anchor roller, and the smashing of the bowsprit into on coming waves had me on deck regularly. Tuesday was bobbing around aimlessly in the calm. I made a couple miles in the morning, passed out below for an hour to try to get a little more rested up, when I popped we had no control with no wind, after a couple hours of enjoying the day cooking lunch and relaxing while we sat idle in 100+í. I decided to get the dinghy out and try to pull us over to where we could anchor. Once we were about half way to where I wanted to drop hook, the wind started picking up and we threw up sails and made another couple miles before dark. Wednesday was our best day; good winds all day long had us under the bay bridge at sun down. As soon as we had passed under the bridge our mizzen sail shredded which made it a lot harder to point into the light northwestern that had started up. Must say my repairs to the mizzen had held up quite will the whole trip. We crawled northward the rest of the 7 miles the next day. The trip was a lot of fun, a little tiring since I had to do everything, but still had a good time. With good steady westerns it would have been a 2-day trip, about 95 miles.
Want to thank you all for helping me prepare for the trip. Now the fun starts, mast down, decks up, new engine in, and all the other little things, cant wait to get started. If any one wants to check up on the progress stop by old bay in a couple months.

Thanks Zach
