Not sure G, maybe South on the bay... maybe North to Long Island and MV?

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Update if you care ...

Prior to haul out I was cruising at about 5.0 SOG at 2200 rpms... max rpms I could reach with the over pitched prop and dirty everything was maybe 2400. Engine should be 3600 at WOT.

Re-pitch and clean bottom, I am at 3500 WOT and hull speed of 7.4 +/- .2

Cruising at 2600 rpm getting 6.5 to 7.0 SOG

I could back off the pitch a little more to get to 3600 but Im in the 1000 rpm to retain warranty... altough I think Im passed the five years of the new (or newish now lol) Beta 38.

Point is... I waited waaaayyyy too long to haul. Something I will not do again.

Now... this heat index today is nuts. Another side project I started last Sunday was redoing ALL exterior teak. I had it scraped and sanded early this Spring, but wanted to wait until the pollen levels were pretty low. But now its so hot I was applying a gloss coat at 7:30 last night cause it was only 88°F Now it seems it so hot it is still tacky! Or maybe its the humidity? Arg

Pool time then engine and transmission oil change.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The heat index was quite active in Pasadena - the Jack FM weather report specifically mentioned, multiple times, that the heat index in Pasadena was 102!

Which is of course why I was in my boat (had splashed, gotten a rig, then got pulled back out so the guy at the yard could do the rest of the rig and wiring work at the mast) pulling down the headliners to trace wires... only to find out the went into a hole into the deck and weren't under the headliners at all... argh. It did give me a chance to get rid of 4 mud dauber wasp nests (old, dead, no wasps) which were attached to the starboard headliner. We are making sure the lights we need work, then will splash and get the rig tuned. Then hopefully get our sails brought up and make sure they are right.

I also have to call the guys doing our teak handrails again - I still haven't heard back. If they haven't done them I guess I'll just take them back and try to find another place to make them (it's been weeks). I have the new caulk and hardware and am ready to install them.

Hoping to just motor a bit on Saturday and practice anchoring since we are supposed to be Race Committee next week!

Are they not the standard handrails or are Benetaeus different?

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Not like handrails you find below decks. These run along the top of the cabin roof. Not the sort of thing you just pick up at Bacon's! So I took the old one's off (I had stepped clean through one - 33 years of exposure). Two flat, slightly curved pieces of teak, with 8 holes in each. My job was probably too tiny for them to get to. They had told me they'd had a big job come in and it would be a couple weeks before they could do them. That was fine. But I need them now and it has been many weeks. I could tape up the broken one. I just was looking forward to installing two new, safe handrails. I'll call tomorrow - I just wish if they couldn't fit me in, that they had just told me. I would have understood.

If anyone has any recommendations for people who do this kind of work in Maryland, I'd be grateful. A couple other places I was told of don't do this stuff. Though maybe they'll call tomorrow and say DONE! Fingers crossed.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The pieces I posted are external handrails. I replaced my 5 loop ones 6 years ago. Che ck beneteauowners.com for beneteau parts.
These are pretty standard items. Will cost a mint to fabricate. I wouldn't by these at Bacons anyway as if you are going through the trouble of taking the old ones off I would replace with new ones like you are doing

Also don't forget to do all the teak oil and prep work before you install the. Mine took 5 days of continuous oiling. It's a lot better than staining the boat and trying to prep after installation.

Also if you visit exotic lumber , about a mile from my marina off route 50 in Annapolis, 2nd whitehall roak exit, talk with the guys there they will give you reputable wood working people. They won't by phone.

https://www.exoticlumber.com/

If you never been there it is one of the neatest places I have ever visited. They gave me the name of a custom woodworker who is helping me with replacing the teak and holly floor I have and cutting the pieces custom for me.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Looks like a Chester River weekend for Haleakula. Today and tomorrow these will be some wind though today T storms are omnipresent. Tomorrow 10-12 NW and Sunday....Lake Chesapeake.

One of the few times there may actually be more wind north of the Bay Bridge. We have noticed in our move a few years ago, there is more wind south of the Bay Bridge than north of it.

Thinking of Cackaway or Lovely Cove

Wow, that is excellent. I'm sure your engine will thank you for the clean hull and properly pitched prop.

The nettles have arrived and I'm trying to decide if I want to do a short haul or use a rash guard and swim on the hull.
I *hate* the total lack of visibility and find it very unnerving while I'm swimming on the hull.
