Our 3 hour-12 mile sail to Isle Au Haut, was nearly perfect.

Waking up at dawn flanked by mysterious Devil and Bold Islands, is a good start to a memorable sail in my book.

Re: Maine bound & back

You could gamble a bit with weather, and hopefully ride a prevailing southerly to Penobscot Bay. Because of the curve of the coast, it's not that much farther than Maine points to the south.

Re: What does a centerboard do?

A centerboard provides lift, in the same manner as a deep fin keel(though not as efficiently for the typical compromises of a centerboard).

It is lift(that the board provides), that lessens your...

Re: New Father...Advice needed on sailing with kids

I don't recall any fear from our babies, sailing. But we were coastal sailors and picked our weather. I think parental fear is the bigger problem. If you're the one picking the weather and the extent...

You don't have to go beyond the book title in the original question. "first mate"=woman. Dated, stereotypical.

Re: bermuda 40

If you're thinking about buying a B40, that is the question.

You'll pay more front for a vintage B40 than any other similar CCA era boat. 2, maybe 3 times as much.

Most of that premium price...

Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore
