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.
