Hi Matt, If you've got the mast, they can sometimes be repaired. You might want to ask on the Trailer Sailor BB. They got a lot of folks who are knowledgeable about such things and a few Starwind...

pure-gas.org website for non-ethanol gas availability

We've used this site to locate non-ethanol gas for several years. It seems to be updated fairly often. There is a map function and it's available as an app. We use non-ethanol gas in all of our small...

And as someone mentioned, don't forget the Eastern Shore

We moved here (Rock Hall, Md) from Philadelphia and found it 5 - 10 degrees warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than the area around the city. As others have said the Bay has endless...

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I happened to read the bottom of Section C where it says the regulation will be enforced until April 15 OR it could be terminated earlier by the COTP Baltimore.

Re: Poll: Baltimore as a Destination

If you think about the big picture, maybe not. Big cities have huge infrastructures to worry about, large populations to serve and a much broader constituency. Boaters are a much smaller piece of the...

Re: Chestertown?

It doesn't really answer your question but the current Sultana was named after the original built in Boston. The Sultana Education Foundation has been a real force for good in the community and has...

Re: Chestertown?

We live in Rock Hall and go to Chestertown frequently by land. We keep the boat in RH and have never been all the way up the Chester to C-town but can highly recommend anchorages at Grays Inn, the...

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

Well they certainly aren't all the same. My husband and I belong to the Rock Hall Yacht Club on Langford Creek overlooking the Chester. About as unstuffy as you can get.

While we do have docks,...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Hey Chef2Sail, where is Aberdeen Creek on the Chester? I know of one on the South but can't think of one (or find one on the charts) on the Chester and that's right around the corner from me. Hope it...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Chef2sail gave a great list of anchorages. For Marinas, I'd say Worton Creek Marina, Rock Hall Landing (in Rock Hall Harbor) or Swan Creek Marina (just around the bend in Swan Creek). Further south...

Re: Jellyfish west/rhode river?

This is straying a bit off topic but Gary said, "That's why nearly every public beach in the bay's upper and middle reaches has been closed for decades and will never reopen."

Hi Gary - I think you are remembering Village Cafe in Chestertown. It's been gone a couple of years and the space has been empty. I've seen somewhere that Louisa's, the Italian/pizza restaurant in...

Re: Sue Creek (in middle river) with a 4'10" draft?

We overnighted there several times back when we kept Fretless on the Middle River 12 years ago. We only draw 4 with the rudder & centerboard down but we never had to raise anything in the middle of...

Re: Chesapeake Bay News: 1 Bad, 1 Good

Zebra Mussels are a freshwater species so it will be interesting to see how far down the Bay they go. I would expect they will go up the rivers. They've evidently already been found in the Sassafras....

Oxford Ferry doesn't run January & February; restaurants

The Oxford Ferry doesn't run in the winter.

As for restaurants, the Crab Claw is OK and the view is great. We've never had a bad meal at Carpenter Street but it's nothing fancy. It's been years...

When it's nasty, how far do the bad conditions extend?

Curious as to what is meant by "mouth of the Potomac". Is it just where the river meets the Bay? If wind and current are opposing at the mouth of the river, how far East and South do the nasty...
