They make year round sailing possible when added to an enclosed cockpit.

Interesting. I'd never seen one of these. Do they heat the entire cabin or just like a v-berth/aft cabin berth?

Might look into one for the early spring to take the chill off if we get as early a start as I'd like to.

telecam Just a small Coleman BlackCat portable heater and our beds thick comforters. We are pretty hard core campers so, the boat feels like a 5-star hotel.

Re: Advice for Chesapeake Cruise this week-end

Thanks a lot guys, I am writing at anchorage in Dividing Creek, very quiet and beautiful now but we are expecting NW winds to pickup overnight with gusts at 20kt if forecast holds up. we had a beautiful sunset...

Re: Advice for Chesapeake Cruise this week-end

Since I can't be in the Wye this weekend, I figured I might as well let someone in on the "secret" who can!

One other thing about Dividing or Granary creeks is that if you have a dinghy, it's fun to land it at Wye Island and explore the island, most of which is a state park. There's a network of hiking trails and it also has the oldest holly tree in MD.

I've always wanted to do a Thanksgiving weekend cruise but family or work obligations or weather always seem to get in the way. Eventually we'll make it out there but for now will just have to live vicariously!

Enjoy.

Re: Advice for Chesapeake Cruise this week-end

Dividing Creek will be well protected. Granary Creek is also but is very narrow and shoals a lot. Granary has a bald eagle nest back past the curve ibn the creek, but it is shallow back there. Also not NW winds with that speed will give a blowout tide so expect to loose a foot or foot and half extra of depth of the water.

On a calmer day Shaw Bay on the way in is also a nice anchorage/ but not as protected. Thats a great place in the summer if you want a breeze.

You may also want to think about Broad Creek on the Magothy at the elbow in the creek. You are proected from the NW by eagle hill ( 500 ft) We have been in there in 40 knots and nary a ripple. Great glass house on the starboard bank. as you come in the creek

Another nice place is the Chester River. though none of these are NW protected except maybe behind Cacaway ( Langford Creek) where the geese circus performs at sunset every night. Greys Inn and Corsica are nice also bit are not NW protected.

Brian you are giving away our hiding spots...

Re: Advice for Chesapeake Cruise this week-end

I actually bought it from the Moorings back in July. It's in their Annapolis Landing Marina charter fleet. No charters until May so, I am free to sail.

Take care,
