That gave us the beam reach as the wind was NW at the time.

We were lucky the current was going out at that time, though it opposed the wind creating some serious chop at the mouth of the Chester.

It was a fun sail. Didn't see any planer boards or Powerboats today. Plenty of sailboats though.

Wow you crossed the Potomac close hauled in that wind...impressive

Never been to the Conan. Describe it?

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Coan River: wide ass open. You can have a raft up with about 1000 boats. Low tree lines. Some houses on shore. Only reason I came here is I couldn't make Smith Creek under sail. What a great day!

Fiberglass/Resin work isn't all that fun.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

It's a neat river, fished just outside it many times, lots of croaker along the channel edge. The channel into the river is a bit tight, but once inside, it widens out pretty good and it's a nice anchorage. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.9820.../data=!3m1!1e3

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

With some assistance and the loan of some tools, I've accomplished a ridiculous amount of work on the new Tartan in only two days.

I'm looking to remove the rudder tomorrow and have Maritime Plastics turn me out a set of rudder bearings. I'll try to lay on the new anti-foul while that's happening.

A friend gave me a miracle polish (not Poli-Glow) that decimated the oxidation on the boat's topsides. We're going to each attack the topsides with 10 inch buffers with this stuff to get the green color back to beautiful, then hit it again with wax to preserve it.

I'll test fit the bearings on the rudder post, then test fit them into the boat's collars and if everything's correct, I'll epoxy them in place.

Then, Launching Day.

I expect to be in the water anywhere between next Tuesday and next Friday.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

So we finally got launched a week ago Saturday and it pretty much hasn't stopped raining since! We moved from Old Bay to the Anchorage Marina on Saturday under ominous skies but no rain. (and little wind). Sunday, while clear, was just blowing up a stink so we chose to celebrate mothers day on land. (Cutting grass and other honey do stuff)
At some point the sun will shine again...
The only painting work I have left is the non-skid. I just need a window of dry weather to tape and paint. Forecast isn't promising for the rest of the week. Oh well, she still looks pretty good as is.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I'm sorry for you, but the rain is my consolation that I'm not wasting many sailing days while I bust my a$$ on this Tartan.

I'm praying I get 'er home by the end of the month so that I can enjoy the rest of the season.
I don't really care if I get to sail far, as long as I get in plenty of day sails and short range overnights while I bring the boat back to fighting trim.
