Re: Quick meals or snacks?

Pretty much anything in a can other than tuna or salmon works out well for me. As stated by the chef, they suck!

Not a big fan of Ramon noodles, but I keep lots of canned stuff on the boat, Chef...

Merry Christmas guys and gals. 2014 has been a pretty good year for this old codger and I'm looking forward to spending next Christmas in the sunny south of the Florida Keys.

Re: Simple Question-How good is the sailing in the Chesapeake ?

The absolute best sailing waters in Chesapeake Bay, from my experience, are located near the mouth of the Potomac River between Point Lookout and Smith Island, and south to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge...

Re: Chestertown?

Lots of neat restaurants in Chestertown, one of the best ones, however, recently went out of business. They had a huge assortment of homemade breads, plus a lot of locally made wines for sale. What...

Re: Would you work 1 additional year to go from $50k to $150k boat

Being self employed, I chose to continue working as long as possible, which keeps the sailing kitty full. And, I guess if I were working for someone else, and in reasonably good health, and had $75K...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

Yes, many times. There were no exclusion dates, no exclusion areas, no hurricane zone restrictions, but no definitive coastal limits specifications. Overall, a very clean, no nonsense policy that is...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

John, gettin' old ain't fer wimps and sissies - and it ain't near as much fun as some folks said it would be. I'm probably not the oldest guy on this forum, but at 74 I feel like I can make a few...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

Yeah, you're probably right about the EEZ being the outer limits of the coastal zone. Last time I checked, the EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) was 200 miles, which would include a lot of southern...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

personally, at 74 years of age, I no longer can tolerate sleep deprivation - I just fall asleep at the helm after 24 hours non stop sailing. Sometimes, even before 24 hours.

There are inlets that...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

I just checked my policy with Erie to see if there was some stipulation as to the distance offshore I could roam. The policy states "All coastal waters of the United States and all tributaries."...

Re: Live aboard Plan

My experience over the past 8 years is the bigger they are, the more forgiving they tend to be while sailing.

Good luck on whatever you decide upon,

Re: Storage in Florida for a year?

You can still place a poly tarp over the boom, which will help keep a lot of water and other airborne debris out of the cockpit. That tarp will not create problems with ventilation, but be sure you...

Re: Storage in Florida for a year?

Disconnect the lowest seacock hose, stuff the opening with brass scrubbing sponge to keep the critters out, and put in as many solar powered fans as the boat can handle. Even when it's very humid and...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

Two years ago, while at the only fuel dock in Deale, Maryland, a 47-foot Egg Harbor sport fishermen backed into the dock perpendicular to the dock I was at. He was very impatient, and backed in so...

Bubs, I still take people out with me, but they must meet certain criteria, such resembling a Barbie Doll, and knowing how to make a good Green Coconut Margaretta.
