Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I put my boat on the hard today so the weather for the next couple weeks will be perfect. Had a pretty awesome red sky tonight at sunset.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Bubble wrapped my ports yesterday... huge difference in heat retention and no sweating inside. Yay.

About 30' of double sided tape and a roll of bubble wrap = $30... took about an hour.

Doesn't look great but it's doing the job

Outside view


From afar you really cant tell... right? LOL


Funny... I posted a question on Facebooks Liveaboard Sailors and got mixed thoughts on putting it outsude or inside... after a glass of wine and long debate with myself... well as you see I went with your suggestion Dave

Next... I did the hatches and a few other things with the leftovers. Last night was toasty with only one heater vs. two prior.

Soon, new headliner with some better insulation. Then I should be complete.

Last year I did all the lockers with foam board and they remained dry, no sweating all winter. Love it.

Cheers mates.

Neat! That's the first boat I've seen with storm windows.

Merry Christmas, Old Friend,

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all. And Thanks. I find this thread to be a great source of advice, information and support. We'd hoped to get going exploring the Chesapeake this year but thanks to a guy ramming the stern and some other issues, the boat spent much of the sailing season being repaired. Hopefully, we can really get out there in 2017! I've always found people here ready to share experience and help. Thanks!

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I was able to get out and catch a few zephyrs on Christmas Day when it was great and yesterday afternoon when it was fantastic.

I think a thread of Glorious Little Sails, the opposite of Big Freakin' Sails, needs to be started:
