Beautiful sailing day!

We are tied up at Anchorage marina in Baltimore. Surprisingly the pool is still open and we had fun cooling off with the girls. They also have a live band here tonight.

We actually attempted to anchor in the area between the Anchorage and Baltimore Marine Center but kept snagging plastic bags and couldn’t get a good set. Dock master here said they took a core sample when they installed the trash wheel and found 4 feet of plastic bags at the bottom.

There was a lot of debris at the mouth of the Patapsco including a couple of whole small trees. Nothing here upriver.

Unfortunately fireworks at Fort McHenry were cancelled for the storm that wasn’t.

I'm surprised I didn't hear you on either my handheld or the VHF down in the cabin.

Did you hail me as "Breakin' Away"? Now that I think of it, my wife said she heard a hail in the cabin for "Take Five", but I ignored it because I've heard that hail a few times this summer. I even tried responding a few weeks ago, since my former boat is now in Patapsco River, but the guy didn't respond to my hail. So this time I ignored it without even thinking it might be you.

I have a wired RAM mic for the cockpit, but have not had time to install it. Fishing the wire up through the binnacle tubing will be a dreadful task, because the current wires are glued in with silicone caulk at the ends of the tubing.

My bad. I did call you as Take Five.
I still like the story behind that name

If you can get the silicon plug out maybe you can use an electricians fisher as they are flat metal and may be able to slide beside the existing wires. I use that for wire runs in tubes. Is your compass binnacle accessible and on the pedestal? Maybe you could go that route as there is usually a wire there to backlite it.

Little foggy this am. Perfect breeze and sleeping weather. Nice breeze for a broad reach home of 25 miles. Cacaway is the same distance from our marina as Shaw Bay on the Wye River. 50 mile round trip.

Great view here for our turkey , bacon, lox and bagels and Kona coffee. It is so quiet here. We heard a wild turkey this morning call another one on the farm next to the island

Have you considered mounting your RAM on the cockpit bulkhead port or starboard of the wheel? Your wire run could be simplified and you wouldn’t have to reach through or past your wheel to use the RAM.

Mine is mounted to starboard where an old autohelm sensor head had been located.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Fantastic weekend sailing... Saturday nights sunset was extraordinary!

Only sailors would get sailing upwind with SOG as much as the wind was blowing. A sense of accomplishment I suppose?

I've heard a lot of stuff on the VHF over the years but today a call stating they had caught a deer near Hart Miller Island was a first. It was unclear if it was alive, sounded like it was. I would have loved to see a video of that rescue haha.

Cheers

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We heard the deer call too and also assumed it was alive. This raised a lot of questions in our minds. I’m not sure how you bring a live deer aboard or keep it aboard to deliver it back to shore.
