Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Visit the boat and take a spool of twine and do an actual measurement. With the boom extended as you would have on a DDW run. Dont leave yourself short.

Figure out which line you want to go with i.e. New England, Sampson etc.

After that I would go online and compare prices, you may save a lot with no tax and free shipping from the many websites

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Dave, he lives in upstate New York and has to fly space available to Baltimore. With a one day sale at West Marine, that is why he is asking for some help doing a rough calculation.with the sale price, if he buys up to 30% too much, he is still ahead of the game.

Yes I knew that. Wasn't sure his time frame. If you notice in my post the last site was West Marine, with a 40% off till tonight. He could order today and pick up at the store in Baltimore

I would err on the large length.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Wow, what a change in temps...like a switch got flipped.

Had a great smoked brisket dinner at a local eatery after we loaded Haleakula. Tomorrow we are headed somewhere...lol. But not Annapolis.
Got a couple of great pieces of Tuna for tomorrow nights dinner at anchor. Haven't decided whether we are grilling it or making sushimi- maguro and toro as I got my hands on a Maui onion, garden fresh strawberriestoday as well as a fine bottle of Chinese light brewed soy sauce.

Wegmanns had some outstanding mangos and ripe passion fruit. Last night we made blood orange sorbet with our ice cream maker so tomorrow looks like a tempting dessert with the fruit and sorbet.

Of course we hope for some wind...looks like Soutern component till Sunday but not to strong.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Kind of late in the day, but if the OP hasn't jumped the gun, he might consider waiting to measure his line--it certainly isn't 15/16--and ordering it from Defender at their regular discounted price. The WM Friday promotion has 5/16 New England Ropes VPC Performance Braid (for example) at $1.01/ft vs Defender at $1.10. For 9 cents a foot premium, I'd make sure of the diameter and length.

BTW, be careful to measure the diameter of old, fuzzy line properly and avoid jumping up a size inadvertently--your sheaves won't like that. Don't ask how I know!

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

South/southeast wind all day today, at least till it was time for me to head northwest, which the wind switched to when I reached Battery Island and was headed northwest up the channel to the marina. I was intending to stay out for three days, but my damned back went out about 4 p.m., so I headed for the barn and home for some pain meds. Still hurts like a damned toothache.

Great sailing today in the upper bay, winds ranged 8 to 10 steady, with a few minutes of 12 to 15. Got to test my AIS system today - I love it. When the alarm went off and said there was an AIS vessel 1.2 miles away, I zoomed out the GPS and there it was, directly behind me, a huge barge being pushed by a tug toward the Susquehanna River quarries. I had plenty of time to get out of it's way, watched in go past, cracked open a Coors Light and was lovin live till the damned back went to Hell.

Sorry I didn't make it beyond Betterton, Dave, but maybe next trip. I'll bring the pain meds with me on the next one.

All the best,

Gary

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We got too late a start to make it to Chester River anchorages. So we reached across the Bay to Eagle Cove. Dinner, movie, and now bed. Nice breeze kept the anchor rode creaking, but I added chafe protection to stop it. We head back early tomorrow.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Hanging out up the Corsica River off the Chester. Beautiful sail today with 12-15 steady . Was hot on land but perfect on the water. Actually had a jacket on when we were close hauled as the water is still relatively cool. A few more boats out but for the most part we had the Chester to ourselves.

We have the anchorage to ourselves. Great dinner of two types of tuna sashimi with a couple of great dipping sauces. We made some purple Thai rice to go along with it. We brought some saki and plum wine, but I really have never gotten use to it.

Getting ready to have the homemade sorbet with fresh mangos flambeed in brandy over the top. The place is so quiet tonight with only a few circadas / crickets and one loud hoot owl in the distance.

Planning a 10 day trip for our first vacation in June to Cape Charles, Yorktown, Rappahannock, St Mary's possibly with stops in between.

Looks like the second trip in August/ September will be to the LI Sound.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Getting pretty hot already. This past Friday, I worked on the boat and it got to 88 inside the boat by the time I decided to call it a day. I'm far enough along in my fiberglass project, that the heat shouldn't slow my progress TOO much. Still have some more work to do, but it's getting closer to finishing up. I'm still hopeful I'll be able to launch this year.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Beautiful sail today. Temps in the the upper 70s steady winds 12-15.
Love the way Haleakula performs with new bottom paint.

Next weekend if it's cool we replace the mascerator with the exact same model. They have a finite life before they leak it seems. Should take long, but whenever you do a boat project it's like unpeeling an onion, with multiple layers of potential issues where "Murphy" reveals himself.

Hopefully it goes auickly
