Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

I wish the model went out further, past 8/1 at 0800. Looks like the wind will be a little lighter and a little more southerly.

Thanks ... I have CBOFS bookmarked, but windfinder is on my phone...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Using Windfinder and picking Cove Point as a sort of mid-point, I see max of 7-11 E at 2300 on Friday night when you guys should be about there. That could be a great sail with a reacher. Temps are...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Our first Gov Cup in 08 was like this forecast. Virtually no wind at the start and then becalmed for 2 hours at 0200. If that happens for you guys, watch your GPS and the tide. We drifted backwards 2...

Re: Non-inflatable life vest and harness?

Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

I checked "Other". I'm part owner/VP of a small software company. My boss/President is 200 miles away in another state and partly retired, so I mostly only answer to my customers and employees. The...

Re: Do I need new sails

Ditto.

35 Year old sails are very probably shot in the sense that the fabric is old and stitching is tired. Try the poke test described elsewhere. They are probably stretched out of shape but...

Re: What license should I pursue?

You have to be able to document the sea time. I believe that the definition of sea time means away from the dock (and documented as such) for at least 6 hours. I could be wrong on the #hours, but...

Re: How many people do I need to fly my a-sail

You can do it easily with 2 people. My wife and I did it without a sock on our 28 for 15 years. A sock is easier, but not at all mandatory. We set our aspin on the 38 with the two of us using a...

Re: Low Rider

Dude, if your hull is so saturated that you're that heavy aft, you'd see water sloshing around! :)

Re: Jellyfish west/rhode river?

I dove the hull on Sunday too. Nothing as far south as Lodge Creek off the Yeocomico off the Potomac.

I think all the rain has kept them down. It's usually wall to wall nettles by now.

Re: Low Rider

She does look a bit heavy in the tail. I seriously doubt that there is anything wrong with the fiberglass... it's the same stuff above and below the waterline. Perhaps, and it's a big perhaps,...

There are a lot of steps involved and while each isn't especially difficult, they are time consuming. You would have to install a through hull and seacock for the cooling water, pump, condenser,...
