Re: Should I go?

Agree with some of these guys. If you need to ask you problably shouldn"t go today. North Atlantic can turn ugly fast. Not the worst weather to sail in, but will be a handful solo. Live to fight...

Re: new halyard

Hi Stumble. Not familiar with dyneema. Would prefer rope but didn"t think 3/8ths would be smooth thru the sheave. Does it hold up well as far as fraying ? Will have to investigate and see if this...

Re: new halyard

Hi TBG, you will most definitely have to replace the sheaves at top of mast. I did a major overhaul of my P-30 last year ( still working on some finishing touches). One thing I did was remove the...

I know marinas on the Cheasapeake aren't cheap, but don't need a country club. Just a decent place to keep my boat.

Re: Marinas in Northern Cheasepeake Bay

Preferably along eastern shore within an hour and a half of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Open to other options.

I've actually done some sailing with a Hobie Getaway for the last couple of seasons off of East Point Lighthouse. On nice days it's nice sailing, but the bay overall is shallow. Depending on the...

Re: Thanks To All

First thing I thought of after I hit the submit button. Never posted pics on a sight before, guess I'll learn, or maybe someone can give me a brief tutorial. Either way, pics should be coming soon.
