  1. How to clean your anchor chain from mud in one minute

    Seamanship & Navigation
    The Chesapeake is an amazing cruising ground but --like most-- I could do without the mud that the chain comes up with when you weigh anchor. You can wash it off with a hose but better do that hanging over the pulpit, or you sluice the whole mess down your deck. And forget about it if you are...
  2. Wing keel in a shallow slip

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    The rudder on the Catalina 36 is only slightly shorter than its wing keel. I may be assigned a slip in which the Catalina will sit on the bottom (mud) when we have an extremely low tide. Are any of you in that same situation? If so, what has been your experience? Thanks, mrmac
