Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Looks like we will make the POtomac today and bypass Solomons as we are moving at 6.5 knots . Time will tell

Looking at Jose we've decided that if always s big if with a hurricane . If it stay the course it's tropical winds may brush the Delmarva. Tomorrow the picture will become more clear.

If it brushes the coast with Tropical force winds we will be in Onancock tied up for the 12 hour blow.

If it decides to enter the Chesapeake through the mouth we will probably high tail it up one of the rivers ( Rappahanock , Potomac, Pauutuxant ) for one of the many protected creeks to avoid and waves through fetch situations. Our Rocna has held in 60 knot winds with little problems plus they won't be that strong where we would anchor as many creeks have bluffs/ trees surrounding them

Time will tell. Either way it looks like a short event of maybe 12 hours.

This is what I do, only usually with oil, not butter:

Cool

I agree with oil

I was looking for an alternative to the pots I have. Don't want to use the caphalon pans I have onboard through so looking to see if anyone has used the popper I showed the link to. Using it means just a wipe out so the pot can stay "seasoned" and is just used for popcorn.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We called an audible. Instead of proceeding down to the Potamc we stayed on the eastern shore side of the Bay and are going through the Hooper Straight and anchor off of Roasring Ear Pt/ Goose Creek in Fishing Bay. Very isolated . We are headed xpecting a semi onslaught of flies and no see-umm and have the screens in as well as citronella candles ready. We anchored once on the Honda River nearby.

Tomorrow we will stop 22 miles south in Crissfield so Donna can bludgeon some hardshells , with Sunday being Onancock for a few days. All this predicated on a brush with Jose vs a march up the Chesapeake by it. Crissfield a few years ago when we stopped there has really deteriorated. , but still a premier place to get jumbo fall crabs. I promised her a stop at a pick the crab restaurant.


Weve been motoring most of the day with a 6 knot whisper behind us. We had the diver wipe Haleakulas bottom last week and she is sliding through the water. His report was that the new painted bottom (Ultima 60) has zero growth and just a small amount of slime. First year we used Prop Speed and nothingon the prop so far.

Weather is picture perfect with blue sky, a few clouds, and temps in the high 70s. Water temps have also fallen to the low 70s

Dinner tonight is grilled fresh red snapper with grilled peach salsa, roasted golden Mimi potatoes, and a tomato mozzarella salad with Thai vineigrette. Great first day of vacation to Decompress.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Took a slip at Somers Cove Marina in Crissfield. Very impressive place (( marina) . Tonight is Donna steamed crabs at Lintons as no place in town serves them

Looks like we will get brushed with some winds from Jose Monday / Tuesday but nothing dramatic in the forecast so far.

We just use our Magma uncoated stainless pot with a lid and some vegetable oil. Works fine with a shake. Popcorn and rum with water is our standard fare for guests in the Caribbean. If we get fancy, we might even have ice. To the rum.

Good luck with Jose. Looks like Maria is going to hit the Virgin Islands on Tuesday. We've got our bent Beneteau 40 closed up as well as possible. Hopefully the boats won't get pushed around in the boat yard again. We still have friends trying to evacuate from St. Thomas. Not cool.

Cheers, RickG

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Onancock historically a very neat town. No streetlights. No nightlife. Business what little there is closed Monday. Nice restaurants.

Dinner at Mallards next to the small marina 17 slips run by the city. Donna has shrimp / Scallop in a rarragon cream sauce . Me.. hickory smoked meatloaf with balsamic burbon reduction. Broccolini and garlic mashed. We took 10 layer Smith Island cake back to the boat for later.

Marina is lovely. Free laundry . 4 individual bathrooms with showers all rebuilt in 2014. This is a great place to stay for a few days and just relax. Price is inexpensive at $1.50 a foot. Ride up the creek was 4+ Winding miles past some very nice homes lining it but well marked.

This AM we walked into "town" and had breakfast in Janet's General Store. Excellent . Donna is a breakfast person and wants to go back tomorrow.

Tonight a friends of ours who live in Salisbury are driving down to meet us for dinner at another local restaurant Bizzottotis. Tomorrow many other interesting restaurants open for dinner including a nice Irish themed pub.

Onancock is a nice stopover if cruising down the eastern shore side and the Tangier Sound

I would omit stopping in Chrisfied unless you need a protected stopover as not only is there nothing to do, the area is run down and unlike other marinas this had major security presence including locked gates and a 24 hour security gaurd. Though they didn't say it (facilities were top notch) I think their is a crime problem as well as the community taking over the marines offerings if it were not gated.

In both places there is protected anchorages . Crissfield off the CG Station . Room for 6-10.
Onancock anchorage by the marina room for 5.
Crissfield dinghy docking fee $10.

We are letting Jose pass us which means tonight and tomorrow. We are basically 40 miles from the Chesapeake Bay entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. Winds will be 35-40 gusting to 50.
The normal tide change is 2.5 to 3 feet. Today and tomorrow the "surge" tide expected at +3 to 4 feet.
Waves on the ocean side (7 miles away) 16-20 feet

I don't know about Mallard's. I ate there in July. I went for the smoked meatloaf. It sounded great on the menu but I got a large, cold meatball doused in what tasted like sweet and sour from a cheap Chinese buffet. Mashed potatoes were cold too. At least I didn't pay when I sent it back.

Generally we like Onancock a lot and visit every year. The pub is a good place to watch ball games.

Onancock sounds like a fun stop, just our speed.
