Re: Fuel tank fabricator in Annapolis area?

Highly recommend Jeff Carter of Carter Fabrication in Millersville. Used him for several fab projects and he did great work on all.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Wow – it’s still going and still no one is really listening to each other. Certainly no one is changing anyone’s mind. Not to put words in peoples mouths (one of the common grenades being thrown...

Re: looking for marina

slip,

We've been at HHN for 2 seasons now. Lots of boats - I think there are 1200 slips at North if I remember correctly. Facilities are resort level. Pool, showers, exercise room, TV rooms,...

Re: looking for marina

A little farther commute (I also work in Columbia) but a nice place for live-aboards, is Herrington Harbor North. Pretty decent community of liveaboards there. We are planning to move aboard this...

Re: What's wrong with this pic?

Actually he's either hove to or he's filming a Viagra commercial. If you look closely, the starboard jib sheet is slack, but the port sheet has several wraps on the main winch. So he's actually...

Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP

I learned it (and practice it) as JackDale describes. Advance the initial LOP based on time and course traveled between the 2 LOPs.

Re: Pearson 422 as offshore cruiser/liveaboard?

Congratulations! And welcome to the 422 club. We love ours, especially the aft cabin. Even though we've been deep in the bilge the last couple days. We're re-powering so while the old engine is...

Re: What would you do? Caught off guard by storm on the Chesapeake

I'm with Sabre. Good advice. Also not a hypothetical situation. If you sail on the Chesapeake, you'll eventually get to enjoy a line squall.

They come up fast, but end fast.

BTW - during...

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Legends are great boats. I'm assuming you have voyaging plans for her. I think I remember you're in the Chesapeake as well. Hopefully our wakes will cross.

Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

We have a new-to-us Pearson 422 we keep at HHN in Deale. Same hull as the 424 but with a center cockpit. We've been in the refit process for 2 years and are now hopefully approaching the final...

Re: Pearson 422 as offshore cruiser/liveaboard?

We looked online at Kupani the last time she was on the market 2-3 years ago (at least I think it's the same 422) Was impressed. Couldn't work out any reasonable logistics to get her back to the...

We have a 422 and are planning to cruise her soon. As others have said, the 424 and 422 had the same hull with different deck/cabin layouts. Several of the folks I know who have 422's cruise them...

Re: Bow thruster - dedicated battery bank cabe

Re: Bow thruster - dedicated battery bank cabe

Mitiempo, help me understand a little more.

Re: Bow thruster - dedicated battery bank cabe

as an option, I installed a dedicated deep cycle battery for the windlass. Then connected an echo charger to the house batteries to keep the windlass battery charged.

If you do the math, the...

Re: Anyone use ships bells for time

We didn't. Then the Admiral asked that we add one. Actually like it since we don't wear watches much. Once you get used to the pattern, it's easy to tell the time without looking at a clock. ...
