I have a Rocna 22 lb anchor never taken out of the bubble wrap. I have a lighter anchor that works fine on my boat. This one would be over kill. It's taking up room for more stuff in my garage. ...

Re: Bay sailor needed - Deale to Quantico, VA

Thanks everyone! It really was a blast and you do learn more when single-handling since you have to think out every move beforehand.

Re: Jackline system

I would say harness since I wouldn't want a vest to support my body weight. If your hanging from a vest the weight will be at your armpits. The harness would shift the weight to your hips freeing...

Re: Jackline system

I also use a jackline system while onboard my Catalina 27. I crisscross two 30ft sailboat jackline straps (steel hooks on one end) that are attached to the pedestal and the bow cleats. If itís...

Re: Bay sailor needed - Deale to Quantico, VA

Well guys,

On Friday, I decided to sail my Catalina 27 single-handed from Deale to Quantico, VA. It only took me three days and I probably could have done it in two. I had a late start on Friday...

Re: What to do if a shroud or stay breaks

I've seen a couple of cruisers carry rigging cutters just in case the mast comes down. You can probably get away with a hack saw as well. I'm sure during a confused or rough sea state you wouldn't...

Re: Bay sailor needed - Deale to Quantico, VA

I was wondering why I recognized your name. I've watched this video before while perusing sailing videos in the Potomac. P-28's are great boats!

Re: Why Children should go cruising

Re: Docking single handed...

I use a line about a little more than half a boats length cleated amidships and ran back to the helm. I make sure to run it outside of the lifelines and stanchion to ensure I don’t damage anything. ...

I can believe the guy tried to shot the gap between two barges. It sounds like Darwinism at workÖ Well, mixed with a good dose of stupid. However, nothing beats the YouTube video posted last month...

Re: Bay sailor needed - Deale to Quantico, VA

I would love to, but I have no radar or AIS on the boat. Although, there is supposed to be a full moon the week prior and in the 80th percentile during the trip... That would be nice sailing.

Re: gearing up for sandy

Oh, I also secured all my outside hatches with thin cord. I didn't have a manual bilge pump so I bought one from WM (not affiliated). Just in case I needed one after the poop hits the fan.

Re: Looking at C-27's in VA/MD

Hey Pilotman,

I did find a C27 in the Annapolis area for 13k and love the boat. It's more than enough to learn what not to do - safely. Lol Yeah, there are no frills, but she's very forgiving...
