Re: Chesapeake sailor looking around

Quite right. Unfortunately, most of the things I hope would be helpful are held either as images or longer pieces already on the internet.

Oh well, soon, soon...

Re: Chesapeake sailor looking around

I have been sailing the Magothy River for about 4 years now, after learning to sail on a lake 25 years ago and not sailing again for 20 years. My son is now a sailing instructor and yard helper in Annapolis.

I too am new-ish to sailnet and looking around the river/bay in the background has been my hobby. My wife is sick of the river, so next summer we upsize boats and begin weekend cruising.

It sounds like yo are following a good progression. I hope you don't think a 22 is too small for the upper Bay! There are a LOT of wonderful places you will be able to get into that a larger boat will be denied! (I'm thinking of the Chester.) Our first Chesapeake boat was a Bristol 26, and it took us all over.

Is this "your boat"?


I'd bet it would take a Bimini. That makes a HUGE difference.

Re: Chesapeake sailor looking around

Yes, that is a picture of a G-22, appears to be a little newer. The big issue in my case is the absence of a private head, and running water. I have the sink/galley option but have never been able to get the hand pump to draw from the tank.

We switched from travel trailer camping. My wife is adventurous, but will not stay on board overnight absent a head. The porta-potti is a no go.

We have been on the Bay in 1 meter swells south of Annapolis, in 28-30 knot wind. The G-22 handled it well with just a jib. However, on average in 2-3 foot swells below the bridge the ride is not to her liking. Unfortunately we have taken a friends 30 ft with huge displacement and she liked it far more. The goal is to spend time on the water together.
