Re: What Questions Would You Want Answered?

It would be great to have the insights of someone who has done this recently. I've given a long list of questions I would have. I don't know that any one person can cover them all though.

Re: Just Go!

We are geared up to complete boat upgrades this spring and to take off down the ICW in the fall. We were existing weekend warrior sailors and I grew up with weekend warrior parents. Still, it wasn't...

Re: Greatest fear?

My fears are similar to many of those already stated though I will say I fear grounding more than sinking.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned piracy. I'm not particularly fearful of it, but it's...

Re: Baltimore Boat Show-2015

Last time I went to the Baltimore show it seemed like there were more vendors selling gutter helmets, vinyl windows, and steak knives than boats or boating gear.

As for the growth in power boat...

Re: Chestertown?

There's an article about sailing to Chestertown in the December issue of Spinsheet that highly recommends doing so. You might want to grab one up before the January issues come out. One of the main...

Re: Sailboat Insurance

I will second the recommendations to look at IMIS. I am always able to call or e-mail directly to the agent who handles my policy whenever a question or issue pops up. I usually get a response within...

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Langermann's (Canton location) should definitely be on the list. It's right across the street from two of the biggest marinas in Baltimore and is also accessible from two potential anchorage areas....

Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Sharon loves Miss Shirleys and also Blue Moon Cafe in Fells for breakfast/brunch. Brunch seems to be the new "it" meal in urban areas as there's no end to restaurants in Canton, Fells Point, etc,...

Re: East Coast Marinas - need no frills just less expensive?

I think you will ultimately be happier if you determine your maximum budget and then find accommodations within a reasonable driving distance of your home base that fit your budget. You'll use the...

Re: winter boredom

Winter is a good time for boat projects. I have all our canvas laid out in the guest bedroom for servicing. The bimini needed new zippers and the rest of it I'm just going over to do any needed...

Re: Which batteries for us?

A 4D battery is 20.5"L x 8.13"W x 10"H.

A standard GC2 (golf cart battery) is 10.38"L x 7.13"W x 10.88"H.

To go to golf cart batteries your battery box only needs to accommodate a hair more...

Re: Canvas Costs

PTFE thread is great for fabric-to-fabric stitching that you’d have little reason to ever want to take apart – seams, edge bindings, hems, etc. Zippers don’t last long enough to justify high-strength...

Re: Canvas Costs

Re: Solar upgrade and energy questions... Help!

Outside of a panel that is DOA or otherwise defective out of the box, I’m not sure a lot of boaters would file a warranty claim on a panel once it is installed and in use anyway. By the time you...

Re: Black Friday Specials: Cheap stuff for boats

There may not be much to share. My experience with marine retailers has been that the deepest discounts tend to be in the late winter/early spring and, to a somewhat lesser extent, around fall boat...

Re: Black Friday Specials: Cheap stuff for boats

West Marine also has the Garmin GPSMAP 741xs for $899 and the radar pack for $1899. I'm not necessarily interested in these for myself but they're the lowest I've seen them for anyone who is. I seem...

Re: Volvo Penta MD22L Gear box problems

If I'm reading your post correctly it sounds like you bought an engine with a V-drive transmission. I'm assuming since the MD22L is out of production that it's a remanufactured unit or a running...

Re: Yacht Clubs vs Marinas....which one to join. Are all yacht clubs the same?

I think we see where each other is coming from on this. I actually hope we can come to MYC at some point as it's an excellent location, easy to get to by boat and car, great pool, a good mix...
