Cyclebear - excellent - I've stopped down to the marina there near Rock Lobster\Dave & Busters hoping to meet someone and help them out with whateva' with the hopes of getting out and doing some sailing. Count me in. I assume you are at\near pier 17?

C&C 29 in Philadelphia
I sail a C&C 29 out of a marina in Philadelphia. I am looking for someone to hold the other end of bolt in doing some maintenance work on this relic. I would be happy to take you out sailing. My experience is over 30 years sailing, from daysailers to 50 charter boats, in New England, New York, Lake Michigan, Delaware River, Chesapeake and Caribbean. Passed USCG "six pack" license exam with 100%.
More at Skipper - R. Harris
I like to pass it on.

|Kernix||Sounds good - I am giving my 2.5 weeks notice today and starting my new job on July 2nd - taking off the week before that and camping on the beach for 5 nights \ 4 days at Assateague - Sun 6/24 to Thurs 6/28. If you are up and running the Friday-Saturday-Sunday morning before that or the Friday-Sunday after that, let me know.|

It might be a couple of weeks. June is a busy month for me. But we'll get out.

|Kernix||All sounds good - let me know when and what kind of beer you like :-)|

I'll keep you posted.

I live in Wilmington, DE--about 45 minutes from Philly. My boat is on the Bohemia River, which is in Chesapeake City, MD. That's another 45 minutes south. All told you're looking at about an hour and a half to the dock. You might even make it faster than that if you shoot down I-95.
SD, if you come down to the Bay, I'll meet you out. You'll be coming right past me.

|Freesail99||My boat is in Tuckerton, I am in Malaga. Tuckerton is about 1.5 hours from Philly. I may be moving the boat to the Delaware Bay.|

Sailingdog - "boat drudge" - not familiar with the term but if it's like a "gopher" or some one you flog\beat or the lowest man on the totem pole, then YES - why would someone who does not know me take a newbie out. I offer the incentive of being the bitch - I'll cook\clean, I'll even buy the beer - just show me the "ropes" in between - $50 spent on beer is a lot less than $250 for a club trip. I've gone sailing that one weekend, plus constantly read so not a total newb, but ....
Freesail99 - where are you? Jersey?
Jotun - where are you? And though I'm a newb, basic sailing seems pretty simple - I imagine things like celestial nav, lnav for long cruises, sailing in rough conditions or with a spinnaker, etc are things that take time - but it seems simple - I think that I coulds do basic sailing by myself in less than 6 months - I'll go out with you - you're probably better than you think.
