Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
This week I did bottom paint, disassembled/checked heat exchanger, painted and reinstalled refurbished prop, installed new anode on the strut, and a number of other things. I hope to splash April 14, but need to fly to Milwaukee this Sunday night, returning late Friday April 12. My motor test on the hard this weekend will be critical, as it will determine whether the boat can be ready when I get back. I'm hoping that I installed my new freshwater pump properly last winter. My motor did pass a static pressure test on the cooling system.
I'm also watching the weather forecast closely. A strong NW wind will prevent launching because it blows too much water out of the river.
