@chef2sail , I know you've spoken highly of surveyor Steve Mason. I actually tried to hire him for pre-purchase survey when I bought this boat, but he only does insurance surveys. He has been assigned to my case, so I'll finally get to use him - but not under the circumstances I would have chosen.

Oh, by the way, this is one thing that Petit Barnacle Barrier does not protect against. Maybe Rustoleum would have done better. lol
Well, trying to look on the bright side, at least whatever is left of the prop will look nice when you haul?

Sorry to hear of your seasons rough start. I'm sure many of us carry that seed of fear of something like this, especially when sailing or motoring at night.

Damn Rick....sorry to hear that.

Steve was great to work with and his experience and reputation with the insurance company made it's breeze for me to get the correct compensation

That stinks! Hopefully repairs will be quick. Good luck.

Very, very sorry to read this. Good luck with the repair process.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The four ports on my boat are old, crazed (to the point it's hard to see through), and leaky around the frame. Over the weekend I received four new pieces of acrylic, custom cut, dark smoke. Port replacement will now commence!

But first, redoing the paint on the ceiling... That way I don't get any paint on the new acrylic. Or dust that would scratch it, or...

I'm hoping I can get all these projects done by June. Work gets in the way of having fun, but money makes it possible.

Yes, I do lament the way work intrudes on my recreational interests.

Good luck with you project. I've done my hatches, and my opening portlights are in decent shape. I do have some fixed portlights that are pretty crazed. I can still ignore them now so replacing them won't intrude on my recreational interests. lol

We are out on the loose today. We spent the AM putting the dinghy on the davits and tweaking the boat.

This week we had M Rigging from Annapolis do aninspection of the whole rig, retape spreader boots, put a second flag halyard in, a new Davis Windex ( one with spike on top so the birds can't land on it) , a new Raymarine wind instrument ( to replace the old half functioning one).

Winds were steady 20 gusts to 35 and rough out so we headed back up Mill Creek to quieter Anchorage.

All systems go for our LI Sound trip starting May 17 for 23 days,

We are planning on moving the sailboat from the Anchorage Marina (where we live) to a marina much closer to the mouth of the Patapsco so we can get sailing much quicker and even one night overnight trips to the Magothy or Rock Hall are do-able. I'm having a hip replaced in early March so hopefully I'll be recovered in time for late spring/early summer sailing.

We had a terrible season too, same reasons are you. The new docks are in (moving back to my old slip E24 this Tuesday) and they look great. But I certainly understand what you are saying about wishing it wasn't a long sail to the mouth of the Patapsco.

This year we're hoping to do Annapolis for the first time and a week cruise. We planned the cruise last year but never got to do it. My wife, the less experienced one, said herself: "This year we are going even if it says thunderstorms possible late in the afternoon." So here's to a better year!

We just had M Rigging from Annapolis due outs but they will get you with travel time.

Possibly you can find someone in Oxford as their are a fair number of marine trades out of that area
