Re: Labor Day Weekend?

We plan to deliver the boat back to Baltimore from Oak Harbor where she received all new wire rigging, turnbuckles, and a new Harken headsail furler over the past two weeks. We knew going into buying...

Re: Downside of living aboard

Prepare for a higher heating bill than you imagine.



Some people do, and it creates a nice greenhouse effect underneath. You can do clear shrinkwrap and not feel like you're as much in a...

Re: Caribbean 1500

There really is no "pack". I've done the trip twice and the boats naturally separate once out of the mouth of the Chesapeake. After 12-18 hours I think only once or twice did we ever see another...

Re: Caribbean 1500

In 2010 - 11 it was a $1000 entry fee but that was before the new ownership was fully in place so it may have changed since then.

Re: Old electronics?

You're replying to a thread that's over 11 years old. Many of the posters from back then haven't been active on this site in months or years. You may be better off asking the question on a new thread.

Re: Longer Ice life ??

Re: Longer Ice life ??

If you're talking about the insulation that looks sort of like bubble wrap with foil on both sides, it's called Reflectix and it is sold at big box home improvement stores.

Re: Morgan 38's and 42's .... or ???

Ericson 38 & 38-200, C&C Landfall 38/42, Brewer 44, Pearson 424, Endeavour 42, Cal 39 are some comparable boats that come to mind. We started out thinking the Morgan 384 would be perfect for us – and...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

This was a beautiful and ideal sailing weekend on the Chesapeake - the kind we're lucky to get a little more than a handful of in any sailing season.

We hunkered down at the marina on Friday and...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We’ll be hunkering down at our marina on the 4th where we should have a reasonably good view of the Baltimore inner harbor fireworks. Saturday we may head out for an overnight. It would be nice to...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Beth and Evans cruise offshore without a liferaft (http://www.bethandevans.com/seamanship.htm#30.) and their reasoning for not having one seems pretty solid. Obviously everyone has to make their own...

Re: What is your Cruising Motivation?

Don't want to reignite the feasibility of $500/month cruising debate again but I find it funny that "an economical way to travel" is given as a motivation for cruising.

Re: ebay purchase gone bad: 1/4" G43 anchor chain

Completely agree! The shipping cost for heavy, bulky items usually kills any potential savings from buying elsewhere. Plus, dealing with return shipping can be a huge pain compared to just taking the...

Shawn, What chartplotter do you have that you're disappointed in and what do you plan on replacing it with?

Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

I believe one of the cruising guides said you should almost “take paint off” with reds #2 & 4 on the west side. We ran in and out last year at near high tide and saw 6 feet but I can only imagine...
