Re: East Coast Marinas - need no frills just less expensive?

On the North end, if that is important to you, we are in Delaware City. While we are steel, there are other glass boats that stay in all winter, liveaboards.

Water gets shut off, but electricity...

Re: Sailing in the North Atlantic

I have spent a fair amount of time in Neewfoundland, on shore and on boat and not seen them.

I think it's been a very quiet sun for a long time with it only now becoming active again.

Re: There's gold in their old Pots

For a deep historical background, that is a good read, try Chesapeake by Mitchner. Then Beautiful Swimmers, written in the 70's.

That is a start.

Sea of Slaughter by Mowat is for those with a...

Re: There's gold in their old Pots

To that I would only add that it is for the relative short term goal. In the end it is the watermen themselves who suffer from loss of resource and loss of livelihood, and their way of life. Loose,...

Re: There's gold in their old Pots

My Dad was a waterman in NJ. I did a bit of clamming for a few years. Damn hard working and good folks. But it's hard to see the bigger consequences when you are scraping by for a living ( no...

Re: Van De Stadt 40 - steel hull - preliminary inspection

While a good survey is important, I think tp the really best survey is the one you do yourself. Get a good light and knee pads and take a couple of days to go over the boat very closely inside.

Re: Force 10 heater question( kerosene burner)

I have two of these heaters, one on each boat, plus cookers. My guess is that you are just bubbling out a wee bit from the chamber. I'd give it a bench test and if it works ok, then good.

I put a bit of RV anti freeze in mine. Just have to get it drained well in the spring or the taste stays around a long time.

Re: espar d4 diesel heater

Depends, but probably OK.

WE have a D4 in a 44' center cockpit. We lived on the boat all last winter in Delaware. One week on one week off.

When there by myself I close off the aft cockpit,...

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Hummm. This got me thinking (never a good thing). I've got my boat on the Delaware. I could go up the Hudson to the lakes and then turn East, go down the St Lawrence and so forth.

Interesting!

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Halifax is a wonderful place. Love it. Plan to be there on Brusters week. Halagonians are a hoot and a damn nice crowd.

But there is a fatal flaw with this idea of over wintering in Halifax. ...

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Once you get East of Halifax options get real thin real fast.

Baddeck Marine is your only real good option in the Bra d Or Lakes.

In Newfoundland you have a couple of options.
