Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I was really pissed and wanted to drown a couple people, but I guess I can get in trouble for doing that. I think this will be my last season at this place, though I like the area and it's convenient...

Re: How to get free internet on your boats.

I purchased a $29 wifi antenna from Amazon three years ago, it works like a champ, some unsecured sites up to 5 miles away, and I find unsecured sites just about everywhere I go - especially near...

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My boat went into the water yesterday morning. What a cluster****. The new marina owners assured me, and others, that they had 30 years experience launching boats and that I did not have to be there...

Re: Potomac River Sailing

On a good day, 10 hours. Lots of sand bars to dodge, stay in the channel.

Re: Repainting non skid only

If the Kiwi Grip is dirty, you can clean it with ordinary bathroom cleanser, Comet works great. Just wet the deck, spring on some comet, then scrub it with a medium bristle scrub brush. Cleans right...

Re: Repainting non skid only

As long as it is the consistency of mayonnaise it's still good.

Good luck,

Re: Anchoring in Cod Harbor, south of Tangier Island

It pretty much depends upon the wind direction, which during the summer months, is primarily southwest. The current in Tangier Sound pretty much screams most of the year, that you can count on.

That's amazing. I have lots of electric tools from HF and they have lasted for years without problems.

With Kiwi Grip you MUST pull the tape right away - read the directions.

Re: Waterfront Market

Just about everything along the ICW is fried, southern food - real gastronomical adventures, especially for old folks like me. :)

All the best,

I too did not remove the hardware. Pretty much did my Morgan 33 OK the same as Josh.

Re: I need more horsepower

I'll have to look at the spec sheet in my A4 manual Paul, but I think I read that it hit 30 HP at 2,400 rpm. I rarely run it that hard, mostly around 1,800 rpm, which is more than enough most of the...

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

Yes, I have a Lewmar 700-Pro Series windlass, which requires 1/4-inch BBB chain or 1/2-inch three strand nylon rode. It sure saves my arms and back, does a great job for this old man.

Re: Repainting non skid only

I love my Kiwi Grip finish. It's the best non-skid paint I've come across and you can make it less aggressive just by thinning it down a bit with fresh water. It's very easy to apply and wears like...

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

The method is OK, same method I used with powerboats for more than a half century that worked quite well. The anchor is probably a piece of crap, weighs 42 pounds, plow type, but not the high priced...

Re: Waterfront Market

while the concept sounds neat, doing this as an online type of business that would deliver to a dock doesn't make good business sense.

Re: I need more horsepower

Personally, I believe that for a 10,000-pound boat, and I'm being conservative with the weight, you are way underpowered. Sure, if the weather's dead calm, no wind or waves, the boat will move right...
