Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Re: LFS Proponents Have Lovely Outing

Oooh, on our delivery with Melrna and DRFerron last month, we spent one day bashing into 5-knot winds and 6-inch waves ... in the Gulf Stream! That I'm sure, makes all three of us LFS-certified!

Re: A philosophical divide?

There are things I don't enjoy doing, but enjoy having done.

It's not quite that binary ...

Grinding off 12 years of old bottom paint, is something I certainly "can" do; it doesn't require...

Re: Delivery Captain - Mahone Bay NS to Rock Hall, MD

You might try a PM to Dave a.k.a. "s/v Auspicious" on this board ... he's a delivery skipper based out of Annapolis.

Re: Chesapeake Sea Nettles--where are they now?

Just a few, quite sparse, on the Rhode River last weekend. And a few, but still sparser than I think of as normal for this time of year, around Annapolis

Re: Take your dock lines or leave them?

Like most others, we leave our lines on the (very tall) pilings of our slip, and take a second set for tying up at other marinas or rafting when we travel. the lines in our home slip are marked at...

Re: The Perils of Rafting On

The simplest answer of course is not to raft in unsettled conditions; we raft often but only when conditions are benign. Depending on conditions we may or may not break the raft before darkness, but...

Re: Water Useage/conservation Cruising

Here's a simple trick that works even if you have pressure water: when taking a shower and you need to adjust the temp, adjust by decreasing flow rather than increasing. So, if it's too hot,...

Re: Water Useage/conservation Cruising

This is a pretty old post, but it contains links to EPA data that says that average water use in US for land dwellers is 70 gallons per day. That's indoor only, doesn't even account for watering the...

Thanx! We (especially Dan) had been considering Charleston for a more extended visit, a month or two, since we'd enjoyed it so far on short stays. You may have just convinced us. Luckily for us,...

Re: Water Useage/conservation Cruising

We also end up using about 2 gal/person/day on average when we're in "careful" mode. I just cut my hair really short, unlike my avatar from a couple of years ago, so maybe our total usage will go...

Re: Mobile and Looking for a Great Sailing Community

I'd second Annapolis. Very sailing - oriented culture, forgiving sailing grounds (moderate winds, mud bottom no rocks to damage hull if you do go aground), lots of sailing schools/clubs, lots of...

In a sense we "take turns" also, though we're lucky that our desires are closely aligned. We bring our bodies south most winters, but we don't bring the boat south every winter; that's our...
