Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Hi Magnolia! Currently at Kenlake Marina for the remainder of the winter. Taking a break from the loop to do some work on the boat. Thinking that if we leave the first of March that will put us in the gulf for hurricane season. But when spring comes we'll decide what we are going to do.

We had the opportunity to stay at Green Turtle Bay for a full week, but that is one expensive place.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Merry Christmas Lou - I know the cold weather is coming, but yesterday, it was warmer outside than it was in my house. Hahaha

Happy Winter and we'll all be back out on our boats in a few months. Yippee!!

And Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All ~ May you and yours be safe and healthy throughout the New Year.

Peace

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Hey Pearson796 - so glad you are visiting Kentucky. How is it going over there at KenLake? Green Turtle is very nice, and, like you say, expensive, but nice bathhouse and laundry area.

We are hoping to mosey on down sometime in April. We'll see, it may be May before we can get out of here. How has your trip down been thus far?

What is your draft? And are you having any problems with too shallow of water? We pull a 4' 8" draft.

Here's wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

We grounded at the 106.9 on the Illinois River just outside of the channel in what was supposed to be a good anchorage.

We've had some issues other than that, but nothing that does more than make you question your entire journey.

We have a 5' draft and we have run into some oddly shallow spot on the rivers. We've also learned that Skipper Bob must be taken with a grain of salt because, despite the book saying it is updated yearly, it is WAY out of date and not to be trusted.

The crew over here at Kenlake is really nice, they've been very accommodating to us. The two downsides of being here is that they have no pumpout that is in operation and they have no showers or 24 hour bathrooms.

Other than that, for the price, it is good.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Magnolia Did you install a composting head ?
I have just finished three... ha many books One was < Simply Sailing, Connie McBride - Offshore hard core sailing, out for life ? > < Breaking Seas, Glen Damato - Out and back offshore and back home > the last book I want to bring up , < Live More Own Less, Conrad Ceoper - the circle route great lakes rivers ICW one lap and done >
The topic of heads is well pardon the pun a head topic in some books.
I am not a live aboard. I camp so I have portable-potty. In order to advance longer trips and maybe live aboard . I need to keep a clear head.
This seemed like the time and place to get into this. Since I am looking at two boats in Ky. posting
Good day, Lou

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Lou - we did install an Airhead composting toilet. Love, love, love it!!

Thanks for the list of books. I've read the Glen Damato book, what a wild ride!!

What boats are you looking at? We will more than likely sell ours. We have a Columbia 8.7 28', 7" with a 4' 8" draft. Looking at getting a larger boat - either sail or power - don't know yet. We are probably moving to Florida. We leave Jan. 8th to go down and look at about 15 homes with our realtor.

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Looking at post or the reply. You and the Pearson 796
I am sure I would like your boat I am as far as I can go at this point. I need more knowledge and time out on the water.
Peace, Lou

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

The Daysailer's looking a little chilly out there in the backyard. I'd rather be doing something that resembles sailing over being bummed up in this house! Three years, we're counting down our move to the land of year-round sun and fun. Hoorah.

You want a bigger boat in Florida, but are talking to a realestate person? just buy a bigger boat and liveaboard! Or take the one you have.
