Oh gentlemen. Please, can we use our indoor attitudes?

What's the name of your boat, Don? I want to be on the lookout on our way down so we can get out of your way with our old tub.

Just look for him at the helm; shouldn't be too hard to spot.

Thanks for lunch, the company, and the ride to get more parts so I could replace my shower sump pump! You set the new SNer help a cruiser standard.

Meanwhile New London Ct is a lot more interesting and cleaned up from my time in the Navy back in the 80s.

Enough chatter, on to the important part:

Who is winning the race south, you or Mark of Sea Life?

Too late for this suggestion, but others might want to know that there is a transient anchorage just north of Mystic Seaport. You would be in walking distance to the new West Marine. West Marine in Mystic will price match Defender for items in stock at Defender (they will look it up online). There is also a supermarket (McQuades) on the way to WM.

BTW, only the Westbrook and Mystic West Marines will price match Defender (last I checked.)

Re: Move B*tch, Get outta the Way

West Marine says: If you find a lower price on an identical product (brand and model) currently in stock at a retail store located within 50 miles, West Marine will match that price (excluding shipping/handling charges or taxes) within 30 days of purchase, subject to the exclusions discussed below.

Nice if you're within range of Defender and Jamestown Distributors. I've had no trouble with the Warwick RI store price matching both.

Crossed over from Connecticut today to Port Jefferson. It was the first day since we left that we got to sail. Weird not listening to the engine run

Re: Move B*tch, Get outta the Way

Been in Sandy Hook NJ since Wed due to a gail. Nice wave protected anchorage here in Horseshoe Cove from the waves, but the wind gusting above 40 has bounced the hell out of us. Coming in could get a good idea of how much Sandy changed the area as I touched bottom a couple of times when I chartplotter said there should have been 20' of water. A whole land section on the chart is now 4' under water and I'm sure gets a few boat a year (almost got me).

It's Sat and we hope to at least get off the boat. Maybe go get fuel and take the trash out. Hoping to maybe leave and continue South Sunday to be in a position to run from Matthew if needed.

Cruising is like my years in the Navy, it's hurry up and wait.
