I did check on T37's boat -- he's in the water but all tented up for the winter. Some projects to do over the winter of course, but I'm looking forward to the '08 season already. Your boat's name sounds familiar, too. We must have passed on the water this past year.
Hello folks...its been a long while since I have been on Sailnet...I needed a break but wanted to give a shout out to my neighbors.

We're defiantly up for a raft up next season, and with two chefs your promised great food

I will keep my eyes peeled for your boat Chef...oh, and BTW, any way you can get me in MYC I hear the waiting list is two years, if your lucky.

chef2sail Mitch,

I recognize both of your boats names. We have sailed by you ( going in opposite directions of course). Dick Cusick and I are friends and he does a great job with the junior sailcamp we have and would recommend it to anyone with young sailor wannabes.

We would welcome a raft up with you guys. We have a 35 C&C Haleakula (the principal volcano which makes up Maui....also Hawaiian for House of the Rising Sun). We are known for arriving at anchorage with the "Doors" playing.

We also travel to many of the same cruising areas you have mentioned. Wharton, Swan Creek, Eagles Nest on the Magothy ( we stay clear of Dobbins), anywhere on the Chester especially Cackaway. One of our friends has twin small children like Chef's also and travels with them on a Catalina 34 out of the club.

Lets get together sometime.

SailorMitch T37Chef and I are both at Oak Harbor Marine farther up the creek from you. I know several people at Md Yacht Club -- the Cusicks and the Beers. Both Pearson owners like me. T37's boat is named Windgeist (hope I spelled that right) and mine is Inner Voice. I'm on the hard now but I think Chef is still in the water. Getting ready to go to the marina shortly and I'll check on him. Next year we will have to organize a raft-up.

chef2sail Chef and Mitch,

We sail the same places you do, We are out of Rock Creek as Mitch is at the Maryland Yacht Club. 35 C&C called Haleakula. I concur with your observations about the bar at Rock Hall. This year I added a C-80 Chartplotter and it is worth its weight in gold (and anxiety) in terms of comming in entrances at night and foggy visability.

Three weeks ago we anchored for the first time behind Cackaway Island and had one of the best nights. First time there. At dusk at least 500 geese came down and landing in the water next to the boat like a scene from Hitchcocks "The Birds". Just winterized today. Let me know the namkes of your boats and I will look for you next year.

Knowing that the depth around the entrance can be shallow, I was a little stressed. With the spotlight we located the can buoy's eventually with not incident.

They should really put at least two lighted markers in there. I would not like to keep my boat there and have to navigate the entrance in bad weather with the current channel markers , especially in a southerly blow...yikes!
The two red marks at the "hourglass" shape of the channel can be tricky at night, but once you pass them just head down the side of the mooring field pretty close till you get to the end. After that you should be right on top of the little cans that mark the northern end of the creek. The trick is to get through that hourglass though.

Swan Creek at night...arrrh

We left the marina late the Saturday before last, about 5:30 PM. So we decided to head for Swan Creek again. Figuring I knew it well enough to navigate safely at night.

Amazing how your depth perception changes at night.

Oh..then there was the 50' Sport Fishing Yacht barreling straight toward us at a high speed like a freaking torpedo with NO running lights. A little to close for comfort. I hailed him on the VHF 16 with no success, but hopefully the DNR or Coasties heard me and got the dumb ass.
