South Coast of Newfoundland is ice free. Pretty much people free too.

But I suspect the OP is thinking more of...

Re: Anchor question

I grew up in Manahawkin. In the mid 60's I spent a lot of time clamming in Little Egg Harbor, just south of the causeway bridge to LBI. 14 to 16' boats. We used small danforths.

Re: If you suffer from heat....

We draw 6'6" and get through OK. We drag at low water but can push through the mush.

Fair amount of current in the canal.

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Brent,

I have two steel strap zincs and they have been working fine until now. When I put her in I reused the old zincs. They were in great shape, and I cleaned them up with a grinder first. ...

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Mike,

I've had tons of conflicting advice on the zinc primer, and I've read different points of view also. I find it all very frustrating that there is no consensus of opinion.

Re: Labrador...

That's interesting. But you went most of the way to Baffin, how did you find the conditions? I can see Baffin coast as tough, not a lot of places to tuck in. But much of the Lab coast is a virtual...

Re: Itinerary for tall ships sailing from Baltimore to Philly (June 2015)

Re: Boat on the Rocks - Skipper Missing

From this vantage point, knowing what we know, little it is, I would say the boat (or hull anyway) did its job. It got him as close as it could to safety.

She looks like she is still largely...

Re: Itinerary for tall ships sailing from Baltimore to Philly (June 2015)

Looks like I'll have to work Thursday, we will just walk down Friday.

Re: Steel vs Fiberglass

Thanks. Unfortunately (or not) the boat next to my boat was our other boat, and her zincs were fine.
