Re: Right Sailboat for Severn River??

He asked a general question about an area he will be moving to, and he got some helpful answers. He clearly didn't buy his own waterfront with a dock and he clearly didn't buy his house for the...

Re: Right Sailboat for Severn River??

Is there a chill out icon available? I think it's possible the OP has other things going on in his life beyond buying a boat and feeding information to people on internet forums.

Re: NEED gear

If you want to go minimalist--and the wording of your question suggests that you do--you might want to consider getting a free navigation app for a smart phone, and a paper chart to go with your...

Re: Right Sailboat for Severn River??

Hi Volsail,

Welcome to Sailnet and to the Chesapeake!

Don't think that you have to actually be in the bay to enjoy a sailboat in this area. I keep my boat in a tributary to the Patapsco River,...

Re: Fiberglass Sailboats

I have a 1978 Cal 2-27 with no blisters.

One plus over some other models is the encased keel: no keel bolts to corrode and release your keel into the deep.

I also prefer the Cal's wooded...

Re: Recommended repair for screw holes

Thanks Drive. Fortunately, the exterior end of the holes are covered by the rub rail. I may just fill from the inside, then hit it from the outside next time I have the rub rail off.

Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer

My 27-foot boat takes a little more than a gallon, so I get a gallon and a quart. If you can buy it locally, I'd get a gallon and then see how much more you need after the gallon is gone.

Be...

Recommended repair for screw holes

Yesterday I removed some interior lining on my Cal 2-27, both to replace some old, stained material and also to find and stop some relatively minor water intrusion (the cause of the stains.) I had...

Re: Happy Birthday World Wide Web, home of SailNet ---

I do not agree, especially with regard to "the essential structures and processes of our society." Here are some examples why:

Re: How hard is it to sail around the world alone?

Thanks, I'll check it out. Though if I read one more book about a guy alone on his boat, my wife is going to start getting suspicious.

Re: How hard is it to sail around the world alone?

I read and loved Slocum's "Sailing Alone Around the World." I was sad to learn afterward that Slocum himself died at sea during a later voyage. These kinds of questions seem to prompt mention of...

Re: insurance Edward William Marine Services

Check the dates. The OP and his follow-up response are more than 4 years apart. Sounds like he asked about the company, decided to get a policy with them, then had to make a claim which was paid to...

I don't think the point of the OP is to disparage people with little experience navigating. Obviously everyone starts with no knowledge (in any skill or art) and goes from there. The thing that I...

Re: Things lost in the water

The funny thing about dropping something off a sail boat is that you don't drop it into the water. You drop it onto the deck or the coachtop. When it hits, it bounces up to within about 6 inches of...

Re: Learning to dock shorthanded

You may be dealing with prop walk, the tendency of your stern to go one way or the other depending on which way your prop is turning. It's more pronounced the slower you go, and also more...

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

Since you're making the drive, take the day to walk around some other marinas in the area. Look for boats on the hard with registration stickers from, say, 2008. Those are boats that haven't been...

Lesson learned on Columbus Day

Here's what I learned today: an aimless, shifting, 5-knot wind is much less annoying when it's 68 degrees than when it's 98 degrees.

My young boys and I spent 10 hours on the water sailing and...
