Got myself one of Maine Sail's crimpers. Love it! So glad I got this one.

Just saying I use the SailFlow forecast which I have found to be much more accurate and detailed as well as point on the water data than the General Marine Forecast Ap which should be nicknamed Chamber of Commerce Forecast Ap they are so off so many times

In any case we'll reef if it's heavy, but we'll enjoy the sailing wind while we have it.
I just downloaded the SailFlow app and got the 14 day Pro free trial. Looks pretty good but 9.99 per month seems pretty pricey for our use. I'll try to watch it over the next 2 weeks. Thanks for the tip.

The CBOFS animations are the best I know of on the Bay. Much better than the grib data in SailFlow. Oh - you've already paid for it with tax dollars so it's free.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Got a late start at 12:00 due to replacing the mascerator. Took a couple hours most of the time getting the hoses disconnected from the old one. This one had some serious improvements with SS long bonds holding it together and rubber dampening studs.

Sailing was great. Stead 15-18... gusts to 23 so we reefed the main and flew the entire 135. Usually our boat performs better reefing the jib before the main, but we we almost all broad reach till the wind switched from the west as the front came through at 3.

We are anchored in the protection from the W, NW winds by the hill at the end Broad Creek Magothy. Only ones here. It's dead calm at water level as we hear the wind whistling through the trees on top of the hill. It's one of our favorites hiding spots.

Tomorrow will have another broad reach day. No rain either.

Waiting to watch the Derby with our mint juleps.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We're not on the hook tonight, but I am in the marina, and the wind is really howling through here. Rock Hall Harbor is protected from the west by jetties, but totally open to the wind, and I'm seeing 22 kt sustained with gusts up to 29. There's a lot of heeling action in the slip. My cockpit sensor says temp is 57, but it sure feels a lot colder than that out there. I've been wanting to test my AC system post-splash, and it's performing well - on reverse cycle (heat pump mode). lol

I've spent the afternoon and evening working through some items on the boat, most notably my stuffing box, which has been dripping at rest and allowing about a gallon of water in the bilge each week. I have a question that has come up, but I will post it on a different thread to avoid a hijack.

Take a look at your A/C cooling water strainer now while it is clean so you know what it is supposed to look like.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

On the hook, Corsica River behind Rocky Point...

Yesterday was a great sail and for most of the ride back today it should great if a bit gusty. Very protected and quiet place to anchor with some beautiful surroundings.

Dinner was a Indian Lamb Curry Stew with Roasted Eggplant and Saffron Rice... perfect for a chilly wet evening. All to ourselves except the Geese, Blue Herons, and Bald Eagles.

Took a dingy ride up the river to Centerville and stopped by the Russian Retreat to say our regards on behalf of President Trump lol. But no one was home?

Fresh Farm eggs from a friend and sausage for breakfast... WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAN US? NOBODY

Cheers

I know you'll fix your drip before we meet up. I still carry two custom made packing wrenches on the boat from when Haleakula had a stuffing box. We replaced that with a dripless shaft years ago when we redid the cutlass bearing, new accumet shaft, coupler. I won't ever go back they are your the next time we meet up if you want
