<--------------------GUESS WHO BOUGHT A BOAT!!!

Yep. I'm the super noobie owner of a 1978 Cat 27 (w/the outboard option)! Now, if it just survives the oncoming hurricane this weekend.

Absolutely!!! I'm still wrapping things up for the boat purchase (registration/insurance, etc). I'll be looking to move it to its new home/marina and put it up on the hard in the next two weeks, and both of us are scared to death to try and sail it by ourselves. So, yep! if you are willing to help us sail it from where it is to where it has to go (not very far btw) we would be eternally grateful (and willing to supply lunch and a beverage!

Re: Chesapeake Hopeful

Smitty, where is the boat now? And where is the marina where you wish to sail to? I would be glad to assist you in getting the boat to it's new home in any way I can.

Good Luck,

Gary

I'm leaving Perryville tomorrow morning and headed south for a couple days. Probably end up somewhere near the Chester River or maybe the Magothy River.

The boat is currently at a private slip off the Severn River in Luce Creek. We'd be moving it to the Carrs Creek Marina. At least, that's the current plan.

Three mile drive by car. Looking at the map, it appears to be about the same on water.

Naval Support Activity Annapolis is a nice place. Be aware that many service people haven't and won't jump through the hoops for access so if you need engine or electronics work your options will be more limited.
