Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Spent the day cleaning and checking the boat for a sail tomorrow. Everything lookin good. Now where is the ignition key? I have misplaced the key. I can't find the freckin' key.
ARRRRRRGGGG.
While all is not lost, the boat is pretty simple to hot wire.

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Had dinner in our favorite place....cockpit of the boat ( we stayed in our slip today)
We put up the side canvas and still had a great view as the wind was whistling .
Ceramic heater has the boat nice an toasty for tonight’s 38 degree te

Replaced the compressor module on our Danfoss refrigeration after cramming myself like a pretzel into the lazzarette. I installed this Super Cold Machine 11 years ago, and was suprised I still fit😁 Flipped the breaker and it seems to have done the trick. Refrigeration holding at 38 degrees and ice cubes made in the vertical ice cube trays.

Dinner was med rare Bison NY Strips from a farm close to us, Caesar Salad and red beans and rice. ( cheated and bought a store packet ) Dessert was a no sugar chocolate fudge donut Donna made.

Feels good to be back on the boat.

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Finally... Got the sails on and went out for a short sail Sunday. It was blowing a good bit and we enjoyed a couple hours messing around on the river.

Picked my sails up Thursday just in time. A little plug for Chesapeake Sailmakers. Chuck and his staff have been taking care of me for years. They have a newly formed partnership with Elvstrom Sails https://www.chesapeake-sailmakers.com/

We also installed a new fresh water pump and tried fixing the evaporator plate. The water pump went well... The evaporator not so much. Looks like a new one someday soon until then I'll be carrying ice to the boat in the form of frozen one gallon jugs

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Did get the boat hot wired and away we went. Had a nice sail, gusty, more than a few boats out and about. Glad we started with a reef in the main. Did get a big gust putting the boat over causing my grandson to yell "HOLY JESUS". It was his first time out in good air. Grand daughter seems to have the knack for sailing. Held a steady course.

Agree with you about Chuck and Chesapeake Sailmakers, been taking my sails there also for years. Does great work and fairly priced. He’s a Chesapeake gem.

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Ditto on Chuck O'Malley. Great guy, fair prices, great workmanship.

I've been gradually working through my punch list in anticipation of splashing this week. My yard is being typically noncommittal about when they'll do it, but I'm blocking in a guy who is demanding to go in Friday morning, so I know they'll have to do me before that. This is a DIY yard where the owner must be present for all operations, so I'll need to keep my schedule open. Thunderstorms every evening may keep me tied up near home until next week.

I've finished a number of things like oil/filter change (couldn't get to it due to early freeze last winter), coolant flush/replacement (changed to Zerex G05), new impeller (although the 2-year old impeller looked pretty good - still soft and flexible, unlike my previous impeller removed in 2018, which was stiff and cracking), pumped out all my fuel and filtered it back in, purged pink antifreeze from all my water tanks, etc.

I replaced my alternator belt for the first time after pulling the old belt tighter and tighter each year as it wore down. (Couldn't help but think of @chef2sail as I did this.) I did move the alternator back a little in anticipation that the new belt would be tighter. Once the new belt was on, it measured about 75 lb on my Krikit tension gauge. What is typical on most small diesels? (My Universal Westerbeke manual does not give a tension spec, just a lame "push it with you finger and it should move 1/2".) I know it needs to be tight enough to not vibrate or slip, but not so tight that it puts too much side load on the water pump and alternator, but what tension is usually the "sweet spot"?

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Anybody have a recommendation for a good canvas person in/around Deale/Galesville/Annapolis? I'm sure there are tons. I might be in the market for bimini, dodger, and sail cover in a few weeks.

Edit: I have to admit to having had a "chinese fire drill" on Sunday trying to get out of my slip. The wind was making a graceful exit near impossible so the admiral and I chose to work on some boat projects in the marina instead.
