Re: Single handed sailing in BVI

If you are tethered though any slowdown of the boat should make it easier to get back on, no?

Re: NY/CT/LIS Boatyard & Marina help?

Neighborhoods are fine... once you are 100 yards or so from the station it's all residential. I will add that there are no grocery stores in that part of Norwalk so bring your provisions with.

Re: NY/CT/LIS Boatyard & Marina help?

Norwalk Cove is good. Big marina. Bit of a walk from the East Norwalk Station though.
I am docked in Stamford, which was mentioned and it is a shorter walk to a variety of marinas. There is...

Re: My chart question again

There are still marine stores that will print charts for you. Landfall navigation in Stamford, CT does this. I am sure they would mail it to you if you can't find a place close to home.

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

I anchored there in about 9' of water last year, just for an afternoon snack and swim on a run from Block Island to drop off some guests at Dodson's in Stonington. I thought I had set the anchor,...

Re: Tomorrow we move aboard and set off

Are you heading down the Hudson or out the St. Lawrence? I am guessing the latter as I am not sure there is enough water for you in the river.

Re: The Talk

I have not one but two thread veering questions:

Do you pump out the holding tank after every day the head is used?

How well does your vacuflush system work?

Re: What do you do for food on a day cruise?

Dinty Moores Beef Stew. Kidding. A can or 2 are rusting away in a locker somewhere in case I get blown out to sea or something.

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

I reef more often than most as I know a few things. The first being that it will be a more comfortable ride and more easily manageable main if reefed. The second is that if the wind lightens it is...

Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond

I always like to put in a plug for Watch Hill, RI. I much prefer it over Fisher's Island and it is worth the 2 mile channel. I hope this beautiful weather we have been experiencing up here holds...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

From what I hear everyone living aboard in NYC is living across the river in NJ. It costs me around 7K per year for a 41' boat in Southwestern CT. I am a half mile from a train station and can get...

Re: Newbie renting a keelboat - dumb idea?

It's a different animal from a sunfish as you would be dealing with 2 sails. Otherwise it still has pointy end and a tiller and would be a zillion times less tippy so if they will rent you one I...

Re: Size vs. Condition/Amenities?

More to consider. The larger boat will likely have a more kindly motion and not just at anchor. I used to sail a pearson 30 which was a lot more fun to sail than my current boat, a roomy, 41'...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

And why all the dual wheels? I asked at a local boat show and the salesman told me it was for easier access to the stern and swim platform. Not sure if this way true or not but we charted a 50'...

Re: Winch whoops..what'd I do?

depends on the winch and the angle. I have a mast winch where you really have to watch it to avoid a wrap like that and have sailed on several boats where that is the case. I find it to be a lot...

I have a solar panel and a wind generator that are connected to 2 batteries that are dedicated to just running the fridge/ice box. I am at the dock though, in Connecticut,...

Re: Essex Ct

We used to tie up at the yacht club for a few hours, grab dinner, walk up and down the main street, shop, etc. Then get back onboard and motor up to Hamburg cove to anchor for the night.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Couple of things. BLock Island is great and I spend time there, usually anchored out, just about every summer. Time your time there for midweek - the place fills up like you wouldn't believe on a...
