The marina has a floating breakwater than can be used as a dinghy dock. Others may confirm, there are dinghy docks in Cambridge Creek.

The marina has a gazebo with grill that we can use.

Re: That was fun!

I used an ATN tacker which clips around the furled Genoa. The tack line was shackled to the ATN tacker, then to a block attached to the bowsprit with the line led back to one of the bow cleats.

Re: That was fun!

We did the same thing last weekend. Same reaction. My first mate has gone from hating sailing downwind to loving it. We sailed along at about 7 knots in about 10 knots of wind and could sail from a...

Re: Raise the main sail while still at anchor

We do, often. I'd add that I'll pull up most of the rode-usually all the nylon and a portion of the chain-before I hoist the mainsail.

Re: Raise the main sail while still at anchor

That's what I thought you were asking, and that's what we do, although I'm usually a duo, and not a solo. Even if we don't sail off the anchor/mooring we often hoist the main while on the hook. Head...

Re: Sailing in Near Gale Conditions

That is a very good point. If you are relatively new to sailing, welcome the challenge of sailing in higher and higher windspeeds and rougher conditions only after you feel more confident and...

Re: Yawl to Cutter Conversion

I envy those boat owners with the Yawl rig.
They are beautiful and from practical point of view they give you more option Sailing and Hardware.

Re: Yankee on a Crealock 37

I tried using those in your blocks with a 110 Yankee and it was fine when going to windward but as soon as I easeed the sheets it was catching on the shrouds so I went back to the blocks on the Rail....

Re: Racor filter element replacement

Re: TV installation

Consider this Peerless articulating mount. We have our 32 inch HD/DVD TV on it. Flat against the wall when not in use. Allows the TV to be angled when sitting on the setee.

Re: Zincs on a Crealock 37

The pintle is bronze. Are you sure you have the correct zinc? I have a 34 and I believe the zinc for the pintle is the same as the 37. I'm pretty sure it's the T-20 size, if my memory is correct.

Re: Year 2 Report, PSC 37 Kenlanu

Yankee sheets go to the cap rail. I tried rigging them to the inboard track on the side deck but that never worked at all for us. Spinnaker tack goes to a piece of line run through a block and back...

Re: 3 week summer cruise: Chesapeake to New England

Don't forget Stonington or Greenport. Port Jefferson and Northport too.

After you visit all those expensive yuppie restaurants try this place on the main drag. Best BBQ in NE
