Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My son and his buddy came in from Columbus for a quick visit. We were hoping to get a sail in but I think we're going to the dark side and heading out on my nephews stinkpotter. Maybe a run over to Rock Hall. We'll burn more fuel in an hour than I will all year.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Got a nice little sail in before we heard the storm warning and turned around to go back to Gratitude.
Rain started and wind picked up a little before docking. Attempt number one, aimed for wrong slip and then backed up badly. Attempt two made a wrong angle. Attempt three aborted. Attempt four finally successful.
As per enshrined law, amount of mistakes directly proportional to number of onlookers in marina. Plus side, many hands available to throw lines and help us tie up.
Definitely a contender for Worst Docking of the Year Award, 30' category.

Keep practicing....and when you think you are good.....Posiden and Aereolus will decide to teach you a lesson.

You get the skunk award when you manage to lay your boat on the outer poles of your slip sideways with the wind pinning you there.

Good to see you have humor...you'll need it

Ok but you made me feel better about my own fumbles! Thanks for that.
FYI... this year Anchorage Marina has new management and one of the best changes is having dock people to take lines. Call on 16 a little ahead, it's a big place and it takes them a bit to get there.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Cleaned my hull on Sunday, steering gear and autopilot maintenance yesterday.
The heat has made my creek so turbid that visibility is measured in inches. A nice cool spell is forecast for the next several days.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I have someone skinny sliding into the back of the engine compartment of my Morgan33 OI to adjust the stuffing box on Wednesday. Gotta be someone skinny with very, very long arms. I'm too old, fat and claustrophobic for that kind of stuff.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My lazarette is absolutely massive.
I should be getting paid by the mafioso to dispose of bodies with this boat.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I only wish my lazarette were that size. The PO had to file out some of the hatch base to get a 20-pound propane bottle to fit through. Then, once you get in, the hull is pretty round there, thus there is no place to stand without sliding down toward the keel. Additionally, you cannot see the stuffing box from there. You must crawl through another opening into the engine room to get to it,

The only other option is to stuff your body through the quarter berth access port which is about 12 X 20 inches. It has been a lot of years since my rotund frame would fit through an opening that small. Though, MarioG, one of our forum members, went through that opening just as if it were a garage door. I was amazed at his ability to access these incredibly tight places. He is definitely one of a kind.

All the best,

Gary

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

F2 tornado confirmed by the NWS on Kent Island early Monday morning starting as a water spout just South of the bay bridge making landfall near Stevensonville and ending just short of Castle Harbor Marina... no reports I can find of damage at the marina and the phone goes to voicemail. I am sure my herb and tomatoes are gone, hopefully my dock box is still there? And hopefully no damage to my vehicles.

Today i was planning to head North but the Chesapeake chop was wicked so i fell off the wind and headed for fleets bay and found a beautiful anchorage off Indian Creek.

Spent the last two nights in Onancock, beautiful little town.

Enjoying a bit of cooler weather today. Been seeing many dolphins and today i think a huge sea turtle south of Tangier Island.
