Re: How do you use your boat
I sail a Pearson 28-1, a small family coastal cruiser. I use it for daysails in the Chesapeake Bay and extended cruises in the Bay/mid-Atlantic area.
I estimate that I logged over 1,000 nautical miles in extended cruising in 2012, all solo, including 3 overnight passages in the Atlantic between Cape Charles, VA and Cape May, NJ, a Delmarva circumnavigation, and spent a total of 21 nights on the boat. I sailed the entire length of the Chesapeake Bay last year, from the Elk River to Cape Charles, and the entire length of the Delaware Bay (but not the river).
I would love to go on some weekend cruises, but my wife and young son have not been ready for that yet. Maybe this year. I also hope to take an extended cruise to the Northeastern U.S., visiting Fisher's Island, Greenport, Block Island, Nantucket, and Martha's Vineyard.
