Re: Day Docking / Mooring in Annapolis

Short term pick up can be done down ego alley assuming there is room. Call harbormaster to verify, they may have other options.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Additional bonus for hitting Port Washington...very close to LIRR into NYC or Laguardia airport. You could leave the boat on a mooring there and fly in and out with relative ease.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Best prices for diesel fuel are usually at Utches in Cape May, Sandy Hook, NJ and Point Judith marina inside Point Judith harbor of refuge.

Re: Three Years From Cruising

Going down the rivers, most choose to go up the Ohio to the Tennessee River and the Tenn Tom waterway to Mobile. The lower Mississippi is rather hostile to pleasure boats. A great trip!

Good luck...

Re: Warning about cruising the ICW

Lots of places like that on the icw. Today we went on the "wrong" side of a green can as charted. In the real world outside of our chartplotter we passed well to the correct side of that can.

West marine sells a very nice folding chair. Much more than the simple L shaped one they've sold for years. This one has nice padded arms and much more bottom & back support and padding.
