I have a solar vent in the head - it really does not move very much air at all. At best, it's not much better than a...

Re: Kiwigrip - first experience...

I learned something today. First, the NOAA weather was way off with the temperature prediction - it was close to 90 and predicted to be about 78. Next, you gotta clean that loopy-goopy roller...

Re: Icw

Ironically, a lot of the draw bridges along the ICW are too low for trawlers as well. They were in the same position as the sailboats most of the time, circling slowly and awaiting the bridge...

Re: budget estimate for adding roller furling???

Christian, Here's a video I shot today of my furler - I love it! The drum is large, which makes it very easy to furl, even in strong winds, the aluminum sheaves overlap, no pins to break or fall out,...

Incredible hull cleaner, dirt cheap and fast.

It's rare that I post in this area of the forum, but I thought this would be very beneficial to everyone.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Kent narrows is a bit tricky because of additional shoaling from winter storms, and when I went through it last year with a 4-foot draft I was pushing the edge. If you wish to go into Eastern Bay, I...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mike, the cabin top is not a good idea, mainly because someone will undoubtedly kick the machine while either going up to set the mainsail or going up to drop the anchor. I had a drink holder mounted...

Thus far there have been no concrete plans for a 2014 Chesapeake Bay Sailnet Rendezvous. Sure would like to put that on my calendar, and while it's difficult to believe, summer is just not that far...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Never had a tin can rust in 60 years on the water, and while I know they will eventually rust, tin by it's very nature is pretty much rust resistant. This would especially be true with the alloys...
