Two weeks in Block/Narragansett Bay

We are getting very excited about our upcoming two-week cruise. Five weeks and two days to go, but who's counting?

This is our second year with the boat (third year sailing) and last year we went...

Re: Newport area during the boat show

Thanks everyone. At this point I think we're going to skip the show. We're having a difficult time fitting it in without feeling like we're on a schedule. We've been to the one in Newport before...

Re: Flat Fenders?

From almost all of the replies it sounds like these aren't the proper application for us. Guess it's back to squeezing the round ones in the lazarette.

Re: Newport area during the boat show

Thanks for the info. Yes, we were planning on going strictly for the boat show and then spending a few days in Newport the following week.

A little over five weeks to go!

Newport area during the boat show

We are just under six weeks away from our two week cruising vacation (not that I'm counting or anything) and Block Island and Narragansett Bay are on the itinerary.

We were thinking of hitting up...

Flat Fenders?

We were in Defender today and saw Taylor Made Modular Flat Fenders. Does anyone have any experience with them, or thoughts? It seemed like they would take up a lot less space in our lazarette than...

Re: Passenger sick for two days after day sail???

I discovered that for myself last September when we were sailing to Block. We were sailing downwind in 3-4 foot seas so it was very rolly. I was doing just fine until I went down below to use the...

Re: Jib car gets stuck on track

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Mr. Cthoops took some Sailkote, a hammer, and a punch to the track. Some careful tapping and cleaning, and voila. The car moves all of the way forward.

Re: Tow or Not

While I haven't personally bern through Plum Gut or Hell Gate, I've read enough about them to know that I wouldn't tow my dink through them, nor would I tow it for 100 miles.

Which weather/wind apps & sites are most accurate?

Now that the rainy/windy 4th of July has passed, I'm hoping to get out on the water for what's left of the holiday weekend. However, the wind forecasts on the various sites and apps that I'm looking...

Re: iPad users only

We have an iPad with the 3G (so it has the built-in GPS) on our boat. We use iNavX (a bit of a learning curve, but pretty good), AyeTides, SailFlow, and BuoyData.

Re: Jib car gets stuck on track

We're not sure what's blocking it. Dirt and gunk is certainly a possibility. It's not mounted on a teak toe rail, so it's definitely not Cetol, but I would think the same method would apply.

Jib car gets stuck on track

Our boat included a roller furling 130 genoa and we bought a new-to-us 98 jib during the off season.

When we use the jib, the bottom is full while the head flaps incessantly. We've figured out...

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

Atlas, that made me cringe just reading it. Ouch.

On another note, I got an e-mail asking me back for the next two Wednesday races. Whoo-hoo!

Now to go buy those kneepads....

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

Love the idea of the volleyball knee pads. I will definitely be picking up a pair.

A few days after the race Mr. cthoops pointed out that I had a bruise on my butt cheek. This was while I was...

Re: Tuning Standing Rigging after Mast Stepped

In our yard after they step the mast the guys do a quick tune but nothing "proper." Just enough to keep the mast from falling down.

I know some people can tune their rig by feel, but this is only...

Oh I completely agree. Now that I know a tiny bit I definitely wouldn't bother with a boat that had been sitting for so long. But back then when I didn't know anything.... A previous poster had said...

Re: Making an offer for a sailboat

The problem I found with sailboatlistings.com is that many people didn't take down the ad after the boat had sold. It got to the point that if it wasn't listed in the previous six months I didn't...

Re: How long of a wait for yard work?

Don't think I haven't thought of that. I'd be happy to take it off of the boat if the two of us could manhandle the thing without dropping it in the water (although I'm tempted to throw it in there...

It's June 6th, we've been in the water since the end of April, and we still haven't been able to go for a sail due to outboard issues. We tried to trouble shoot it ourselves but then decided to get...

We were debating something similar, but in our case it was to whether to buy a membership that would allow us to reserve a boat whenever it was available. The pros in favor of the membership...
