Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

Just hug the red coming in from the Bay. I posted a very accurate bottom survey a month back that will tell you exactly. Go to the following and download the PDF. Then zoom waaaay in.

Re: Sail up to reduce rolling?

Thank you all! I came across a similar situation again yesterday, and it really does work wonders. Not 100%, of course, but enough so to obviate the need for too much mopping during and after the...

Sail up to reduce rolling?

Good evening!

So, I have what is probably a dumb question. When forced to motor (due to a virtual lack of wind) and being hit by 1-2 foot waves more or less abeam, my Hunter 306 rolls quite a bit....

Re: How to install spinnaker halyard on Hunter 306

Thank you both for your feedback on this. It's a weird setup, because from what I can tell, the tracer (learned a new word!) goes into the mast through an opening labelled "Spinnaker 1" (tied off on...

Click Here for the Authoritative Knapps Narrows Depths

Since my research on Knapps Narrows yielded some pretty specific results (slow day), I thought I'd share. I don't think it gets any more precise than this survey from 29 May 2014:

Re: Croatia - Quality of Sailing and Charter Options

Ditto on hearing more about it. I did read that you need an International Competency Certificate or some such thing. I'd also like to know if that's the case, or if you can get by without any formal...

Re: New to sailing and taking ASA101 & 103 back-to-back

Daring to piggy-back on this thread - had anyone challenged the ASA 103 exam rather than taking the whole course? I've looked at the content and was wondering how difficult it is without the course....

International Competency Certificate

Hi everyone!

I'm curious whether anyone in the US has ever gotten an International Competency Certificate, and if so how. Is the ASA 104 cert a prerequisite? I'm looking to charter in Croatia next...

How to install spinnaker halyard on Hunter 306

Hello!

Looks like there is a placeholder line...well, string really...in the mast of my Hunter 306. I was curious how I would go about replacing that with an actual spinnaker halyard, ideally...

Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

Attaching myself to this thread rather than starting a closely-related new one, and I have a (probably) dumb question:

I'm planning to go to Knapps Narrows Marina from the Bay side on Saturday (as...

Thank you all again for the valuable information provided. I am adding it all to my repertoire of pre-sail research sources.

Re: Weather Forecasts (Chesapeake in this case)

Thank you all for the additional feedback and info. As for the localized SCA parameters - I learned something new again. I do Google just about everything, but this didn't pop up.

Re: Weather Forecasts (Chesapeake in this case)

Thank you for your feedback, gents.

Weather Forecasts (Chesapeake in this case)

Good morning!
