Re: Annapolis live-aboard

Frustration is it. I used to sell and install Lecta-Sans back in the day and they worked as well or better than the city systems that are always "oopsie it rained here is 10,0000/100,000/1,000,00...

Re: Annapolis live-aboard

Hawaii is FAR from perfect. I used to work out there and could not wait to get back to Annapolis. As for winter, Annapolis winters are highly variable. Some years there is plenty of good sailing in...

Re: Annapolis live-aboard

Annapolis has a very vibrant live-aboard community, so plenty of people have decided that they don't have to be in Florida to stay on a boat. If you can affford it, there is nothing quite like being...

Re: High speed ferry vs. race fleet

The ferry is exactly the same thing as Uncle Bob in a Boston Whaler as far as COLREGS go. The Oxford (MD) ferry skipper will suggest people please not anchor so close to his pier he has to do a...

Re: Dinghy and Engine Choices

I have less issues with my used 2 stroke than many people have with new 4 strokes ;)
We have 15 HP Tohatsu 4 strokes at our club that do well, but I sure like my Evinrude better.

Re: Dinghy and Engine Choices

The 2 stroke Johnson/Evinrude 15 is the same block and weight as the 9.9. You have 2 issues with a dinghy - HP and WEIGHT. My dinghy is rated for 25 HP, but there is no 4 stroke 25 that would make it...

Re: Dinghy and Engine Choices

I have an Avon 340 (3.4 meters, about 11.2 feet) RIB with an Evinrude 15 HP 2 stroke and I am extemely happy with it. We can easily fit 4 people and a couple dogs. 6 people would be tight and bit...

Re: Mooring question

FYI you should never attach a mooring painter to a mooring ball. Either attach it to the chain under the ball or use the kind of ball the chain passes through. The mooring ball itself should never do...

Re: Thoughts on the C&C 115?

The C&C will be WAY more fun to sail. I can't imagine how it would be cheaper to maintain though on average. A nice C&C is cheaper to maintain than a wrecked Catalina and vice versa, but there is no...

Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?

I didn't wade through the whole 12 pages, but I cannot imagine not having a depth finder where I sail. Sandbars move and I have been aground where the chart plotter swears there is 10-12 feet of...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

I pretty much have spent much of my life in the Bay. Since I was a kid our sailing schedule has been go south first and move north to avoid the nettles. I wouldn't swim in Baltimore Harbor, but other...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

Note that any issue the Bay has with water quality the areas trapped behind the barrier islands in NC have at least as bad or worse once you get away from the inlets. I went to school in Florida and...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

The Chesapeake is 180 miles long with about 3500 miles of shoreline. SOME of it is pretty nasty - say Baltimore Harbor, Washington DC, the Annacostia River. A lot of areas can be bad right after a...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

I have never seen a man-of-war in the Bay. They are more of an ocean creature. I have seen them in Florida and we used to pop them when we found them on the beach and and I have dodged them swimming...

Re: East Coast Marina or Mooring

I think the Chesapeake meets your needs better than most places. Due to geography hurricanes almost always cut across the Carolinas before hitting us here, thus making them less wind and more rain...

Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?

Every boat we have ever owned has been sold at a profit. OTOH we have not sold a boat in a LONG time. I cannot imagine doing it now unless the keel is made of gold and you time the commodities market...

Re: North Carolina - best place for sailing???

Driving from NC to DC from January to March = total nightmare when there is snow and ice.
The heat issue is entirely different deal. Anyplace south of Maine can be roasting hot in the summer. I...

Re: foreign customs and warrants

My cop relative sees this all the time. People take a very minor crime and expand on it until they are facing 20 years in jail for running a stop sign.

Re: North Carolina - best place for sailing???

A few questions:
Why does your wife not like the Chesapeake? I can't think of very many problems the Chesapeake has that NC does not have. If your wife does not like being hot NC is surely not a...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

I can't imagine not having a traveler. it makes my boat so much easier to handle than she would be with a fixed sheeting position.
