Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
From what I saw this morning, it appears that it will make landfall far south of Chesapeake Bay, probably NC or SC. I just worry about the marina going underwater again, which has already happened once this year. My boat is fairly well protected from the wind unless it is southwest.
I just got home from the boat, fixed my running lights, organized things so I can put stuff in my shelved, hanging locker, clothes and other essential things, stowed all those spares in some of the many storage compartments I have on this boat. I still have room for my music gear, beer, booze, food and other necessities.
Tomorrow, it's back to the boat to clean the cabin interior walls and ceilings with bleach water and Dawn dish detergent. There has been so much rain this year that moisture is beginning to produce a light haze of mildew on some surfaces. Gotta get this cleaned off before it worsens.
With luck, and a bit of cooperation with the weather, I hope to get out Tuesday through Friday for a short trip down the bay. Might have my daughter's roommate along - she is good company and crews when I need a break at the helm.
