Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
I went out New Years day for a sail. I thought it would be a neat tradition to start. The weather was beautiful! Unfortunately, I couldn't get my engine started (first time it cost me a day of sailing). The upside is that over the next few days I learned a lot about my engine, checked my points, installed a new set of plugs...and rediscovered the bulb primer that the PO surely showed me, which finally allowed her to start right up. Since I enjoy working on the boat about as much as actually sailing the boat, I have no complaints.
To top it all off, I finally got the anti-freeze in one day when it was 55 degrees, and the next day it was 25 degrees.
Cheers everyone, have a great year.
