Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Thanks - I did have a photo that shows the keel is deeper. But it's still smart to consider that.

I'm back to obsessing over lines - I didn't realize Bacon carries VPC - I hope they have it in stock for my halyards, as the price shown is really good. I also realized that while the jib halyards measured 7/16, the spin halyard appears to be 3/8. Assuming there's nothing wrong with that diameter, that will save some money too. I'm going back and forth between XLS and Sta-Set for the mainsheet and some other potential future line changes (the previous owner bought 7/16 Sta-Set for the jib sheets - recently enough to not need replacing). Defender has XLS at a good price, and Bacon has the Sta-Set which costs a little more. For a good reason? The foreguy is missing, as are spinnaker sheets (just a gennaker on board). There's no boom vang though we may go with a rigid vang. There's no cunningham either. Maybe that's a cruising thing to have no vang or downhaul?

We met another new-to-him boat owner of a Saga 43' - he's also getting work done in preparation to go either right or left out of the marina when he leaves with his wife. I recommended right/South which HAD been the plan but then things take time and the list gets added to LOL. He was really nice - when it looked like we were stuck without a ride, he offered one right away.

So far, the sailing community around here has been really great - I wish I could bake banana bread for everyone!

I do that myself. I make banana bread for work once in a while. It never lasts very long.

So far, the weather forecast shows a lot of rain coming up. Started a little on the way into work this morning. Sunday is my boat day and supposed to be storming. I still expect to be down in Deale at the boat getting some work done. Plenty to keep me busy for quite a while.

When you look at lines, don't go too small to save money. Modern materials are ridiculously strong, so the limit how small you can go is not the load but the diameter that you can still handle with your hands. Too small can hurt a lot and injure you. Try out what is comfortable for you.

Were you able to catch up with Mario at Port Annapolis?

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Oh I definitely won't be going too small with line diameters (besides, the last thing I want is for the self-tailing winches to not, you know, tail!). I wear gloves too. I'm just waiting to hear back from Bacon on what they have in stock. I appreciate the advice.

Daniel - Saturday looks dry! I'm hoping to do boat stuff with the family that day. Go pick up halyards, take another look at the list, etc.

Gary - We got to Port A later than planned, then we were waiting for people to meet us at the boat, so we didn't actually meet anyone from the marina. I did write his name down and appreciate the recommendation. We won't make it back there until Saturday.

I'm loving the rain that's washing away pollen, but wondering what won't get done on the boat due to the rain LOL!

Lee :-)

Saga 43 on my short list for our final boat. Great Robert Perry cruiser with lots of speed. Might have to go for that as the Mason 44 are hard to find which is my number pick.

Can this discussion be put in a separate thread?

P-girl:

Although I'm a huge supporter of Bacon's (I'm pretty sure I've paid for Gary's kid's college tuition by now) I wanted to let you know that West Marine is having a 40% off sale on all line, today only (Friday).

You might want to run some comparisons on the web.
