Re: Screwpile 2014

I understand Donnybrook is in for repairs and/or upgrades and won't be at the Cup, so I guess you are SOL.

Re: Screwpile 2014

Good Luck!

Go Victoria!

Sorry we won't see you at Gov Cup this year. I just registered yesterday, but I honestly I wonder about the commitment of about 1/2 my crew. Hoping I'm not in a mad...

This thread is from the 2012 Gov Cup.

Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

Yes, the shoaling is on the west side of the bridge. The area I had problems was as I approached the red 4 after passing through the bridge.

Well, he's got a point.

I ran aground in the exact spot he's describing week before last. Favor Starboard headed Bay to Choptank as soon as you make the turn or Port Choptank to Bay before you...

Re: Local Insurance rates/recommendations

Thanks Dave,

Unless I get some more feed back I'm leaning towards staying with my current agent/carrier. I currently have an agreed value of $70k which is more than the boat is worth in this...

Re: Boat BBQ tips and recommendations...

Glad to see the Sea-b-que getting some press.

Re: The run aground poll

I started to write that I had never sailed aground, but but that's no longer true. I have motored aground in most of the silly ways you do such things, missing a mark, finding shoaling in the marked...
