Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Taking my daughters out for a sail Saturday. This will be their first time out on our new to us boat. It may be rainy with little wind, but we'll still have fun. We are just hanging round Herrington Harbor North and doing day sails for the long weekend.
We did a short haul Wednesday to check the prop and shaft due to some vibration after Zimmer Marine did our refit in their Mathews yard over the winter. Steve Zimmerman recommended removing the drive saver that the previous owner added due to shaft extended too far from the supporting shaft tube; that will get done along with engine alignment on Friday. With any luck she'll be back to super smooth under power as she was before the refit.
