OUCH!! meuritt, 1 knot over ground. Thanks for the reality check.
Very good info guys. Thanks very much. I will research the marinas/islands landmarks you mentioned. As for the boat, I am actually finallizing the deal next week. Have my choices narrowed to 3 potential buys.1.) A 1973 Cal T2 27 ft. hull speed 7 knots. 2.) A 26 ft Gary mull designed (built early 70's)Ranger 25 Hull speed of 5. Needs a little work. 3.) A 1965 24 Ft. Colombia challenger Hull speed unknown sorry maybe 6 ? The Challenger is in best shape and looks weather/beginner friendliest. The Cal t2 is wider beam but appears to have been designated/designed more racer class ( in its design day) but also looks stable. ALL boats have Well working outboards, The ranger's running lines need replacing. All sails are in good or excellent condition.
The Cal is in Oyster point. The Ranger too. The Challenger is already in Richmond. ............ Now. next question.....
Not having any charts.. Is there an online sight ( Google Earth or something like it) that I can view charts, or simulate line of sight bearing points, or landmarks for turning into the proper channels,rivers, sloughs? Also can anyone tell me how I communicate, (proper procedure)to get bridges up for my passing underneath, if there are any?
Thanks for the replies.. exactly what I was hoping to achieve.. thank you!
