Re: cruising with bull dogs

It's almost as good as a vibrant ignore thread. If they existed. Which I'm not sure they do. Who said that?

Re: Sailing Dry Shirt Material

Once a month they have their 20-30% off sales. You have to catch those. The rest of the time, members get up to a 10% dividend for regular-priced purchases.

Re: Sailing Dry Shirt Material

Well, wicking and moisture repellant are sorta opposites, so I don't recall seeing any clothing that is both. The wicking stuff draws water away from the skin and allows it to evaporate quickly. I...

Re: Fairlee Creek entrance with 6' 3" draft?

Nick, try Worton Creek just a bit north of Fairlee. It's easy to get into and the marina just inside is very affordable. I think I paid $40 for one night side-tied to the T-head. You might even be...

Re: New sailors iso private instruction Pasadena, MD
