Singlehand Too

This is my first post here. I too singlehand. I purchased a Westerly last year, lived aboard it in Md., and when spring arrived I sailed it alone down the Chesapeake to Va. My first thought was to have it delivered to Va., but I knew I just had to sail it myself. Yes, my little ship and I bonded.

The sail down was the greatest experience out their alone. While sailing to VA., I anchored out once and docked at two marinas along the way. Stopped at a little village - Reedville - strolled the main street - found a nice little ice cream shop, and just enjoyed the quiet little creek. Next morning the fishing boats were out early, as I was, and I had a wonderful sail down the Bay. Fellow sailors were extremely nice and helpful, and yes I did get some "I can't believe you're doing this by yourself" when it was realized a woman was sailing alone; and I am not a spring chicken - 58 yrs. young.

My Westerly is presently on the hard, bottom painting, etc., as I am trying to learn everything I can about maintenance, with the help of my brother.

I plan on taking the ICW route in another year. I can't imagine doing anything else, but being out there.

Good for you Carilee. The only limitations we face are those we put on ourselves. Fair winds.

Well done, Captain. And welcome to sailnet. I think you'll like it here. There are a lot of single-handers and most of try to do as much of our own maintenance as possible.

Welcome Aboard Carilee. Lots of good ICW stuff here under the search button and lots of ICW mavens to answer any specific Q's you have along the way. I kept my boat in Deltaville for many years and Reedville and the Crab Shack were a regular stop. Yummy!

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.

Hi there,
I used to frequent this forum more in the past -- then mommyhood took over for a while. Right now my little boatbaby is out on the dock making a "marine lab" with his two favorite toys, a net and a bucket.

We have been aboard for 11 years, with cruising somewhere in the middle before the kid and with the dog. Now we're saving up and getting this bigger boat ready to go again in about 2 years.

In the mean time, it's local sailing and enjoying the liveaboard community to its fullest! And loving raising my baby boy on a boat.
Cheers
Cindy

Hello to all from a new member
I came across this site,when I did a search for liveaboard marinas in Melborne,Fl.
When I clicked on this site/forums, I saw that the posts were from 2007 !
That was After I had done about 2 hours reading of posts.I did find some info from those posts, but I realise they are so out of date, I need my question answered in June 2010 time.
Does anyone know a good liveaboard marina in the Melbourne,Fl (50 miles either side) for a 38ft Morgan. No offense gents, but I really need the womens point of view , as we tend to have somewhat diffrent priorities than the guys.
Happy and safe sailing to all

T37Chef will become famous soon enough
WeeScotty, it would be more appropriate to ask your question by starting a new thread, and being new here take a shot at posting something in the "Introduce Yourself" forum

Welcome aboard
