Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Started getting the boat ready last week. The battery charger failed apparently; both banks were dead. So no engine start but she's in the water. I think I'll do a short haul to look at the bottom. Mostly she just needs washing.
Anchorage Marina, where we slip her, has been doing a replacement of the D / E /F docks over the winter. The new ones are gorgeous! It's like walking on hard wood floors. And Wayne, the dockmaster, has totally turned around the service there over the last couple of years. It's good to see. Our boat has been in a different slip over the winter (we're on E dock) and it looks like we can get back in our slip next week. Yay!
We have an Alberg 35, always seems to take forever to get her ready. Last week when I was there cleaning, there was a nice little breeze and the other Alberg 35 in the marina slipped out to day sail. I don't think I've ever been so envious!
