Re: Around Long Island Regatta (ALIR)

Anticipate the winds in Gardners bay to be blowing harder than at Montauk and in the sound. If you have a smart phone get the bouy data app and ship finder. Takes the mystery out of whats ahead.

Re: First overnight anchor ..

Just have the engine fired up ready to power if you need it. Have enough scope out and ride it out. Doesn't last long.

I had an aft facing forward hatch on our previous cs. IMO ventilation at anchor was poor. I turned it around and airflow improved quite a bit. My hatches or ports are NEVER open underway.

Re: Winching power for MOB

Re: no water output at exhaust

Either the impeller is bad, could look ok but spun on hub, or there is a blockage up stream from the impeller. On a raw water engine this could be scale. Try back flushing the engine w/ a hose.
