I will be sailing the central Chesapeake this spring/summer while re-fitting/recommissioning the Providence, a Cheoy Lee 33. I am just re-retiring from the US military after a 3 year recall. I was way too old then, but glad I did it.......Anyway, plan on seeing some of this world.....and the best way is by boat.....and the best boats SAIL!

Hi,

I am professorfoggy, in Cincinnati, Ohio... We have a 1962 Rhodes Meridian, a full keel with moderate fore cutaway, with attached rudder, 25' LOA sloop, made in Holland, with original Spruce mast and boom. We are restoring WATERMARK. She originally sailed Long Island Sound, then Lake Superior, The Upper Mississippi River and Tampa Bay, and when she is restored, she may go to Lake Erie... I have sailed a ketch off the coast of Santa Barbara on the Pacific, an Alden schooner on Lake Michigan, and a schooner out of North Carolina...

Philip L. Rhodes sailboats always had a beautiful sheer line, and, for the most part were built to the CCA rules, which made a much safer and more comfortable sailboat in medium to heavy weather. I have sailed new Benneteaus, Hunters, Catalinas and others, but would not trade my Rhodes Meridian for any.

My boat is a Cheoy Lee Ludders Clipper 33, 36 LOA made in Hong Kong. I have her at Cambridge MD (Eastern Shore), but will move her to Honolulu next year. She is a 1976 model, but like her skipper, age is only a number. She is a comfortable boat to sail, but not race. We'll leave that to the younger ones. Right now, she needs some work (don't ALL boats need some work??) as I've been playing soldier with the US Army in Korea after a Rumsfeldt recall 3 years ago. It's been fun, but I don't jump out of airplanes anymore. So, a bit slower pace is in order. A re-fit this spring, summer working the kinks out, then off to Florida/Caribbean followed by a Canal transist.

To Professorfoggy......I too, was a prof at a Korean school, Youngnam University before the recall.

Own a 35"Cape Island recently purchased from Crown Assets and intend to use her (after refit) touring coastal Atlantic Canada. Unicorn Mystriss is Halifax based.

Permission to board?

This looks like about as good a spot as any for a first post.

So Cal here. More specificaly LA/Long Beach. I've been sailing since before my teens. That's longer ago than I'd care to admit.

I let my USCG license expire a couple of decades ago when I started working with computers. Now it's feeling like time to let the computers expire, and take up with boats again.

I suspect I'll be spending most of my time in the "Crew" forum.

Hi,I sail An Island Packet 350 in the solent and south coast of England.My wife is first mate.We have owned three yachts since we started sailing seven years ago.We are both ex motorcycle racers and hoped sailing would fill the gap when we stopped competing.It certainly costs as much!We cross the channel most years and visit France and the channel islands.We look after "JESS" as much as we can ourselves and are bringing her up to our requirements .I am currently installing a plotter and radar-it gets foggy in the channel.We learn something each time we sail and hope one day to become mildly proficent.
