    HB's 'new' boat thread

    Bitch, I know. I tweaked my regulator back to 14.2v. Need some petrol, I have managed to almost burn a full tank of fuel with a few booze cruises and day sails, even though we've only spent one night on the boat.

    HB's 'new' boat thread

    The good ship TA hosted its owners for their first overnight this weekend. The boat was great. The storms on Saturday night kind of sucked, but no problems, and we were hanging out with some other boaters too. Somewhere is a drone picture on the FB..We had 14-15 sailboats and a few powerboats hanging off the ends too. My adjustable regulator is putting out voltage a bit low...only 13.79v...We ran the motor for about 4 hours this weekend, so I need to tug her against the dock lines and tune that up a bit.

    Grrr..negative on the wood stuff. I moved my steps to starboard a few inches, to give a little more room in the galley. My steps dead end on the fiberglass floor, with the port foot just missing the access to the stuffing box and landing on the more solid cabin sole. Newer boats have the steps take an angle down to create more foot space in the last 6" or so, but I have the older school straight with no angle steps. That does not change the left or right clearance...just a bit more before you smack the galley with your toes.

    Hey, I was contributing to the comeback of the quality of the Bay waters with the beginnings of a reef!

    Well..I have managed to get the boat out sailing once in the month of July. Had to take care of a little problem first, though. The sailing ended up being fabulous. Now, I've been out on OPB's again.

    Hobie Dog is Back!

    Welcome back...now we have a place for the FrigoBoat chronicles. (I pretty much gave up on regular SA too..jesus..those fuckers do more typing than sailing.) I need to do something to my boat so I can update my thread. I've been so busy, haven't had much time for the boat this summer.

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Hmm..thanks for the "overall" explanation. That is the last $$ I send to them. I always enjoyed printing out my certificate of my overall finish and posting it in the garage/man cave. My last one was 13,372. I know the competition here brought my game up a lot. I got pissed off with 5,xxx finishes in this round and being 40 out of 78 in the SA crowd, but it showed the elite level of competition in this group. Fuck those frenchie bitches (VORG organizers!) on this round for not giving us an 'overall'....but thanks to the scorers on SA for doing the spreadsheets! All that really matters is that I made a few places on @GrandbendOnt in the last leg and beat him fair and square. @GrandbendOnt, if you ever come to Solomons, MD, drinks, sailing and shit are on me!

    I had left GBO in my dust so bad I didn't even have him on my radar! But alas, not enough westing in the ocean for the good ship HB bites me in the ass! At least I made it out of the 40's on this leg!!! Good on ya GBO. I knew that I was toast when I was 10 minutes behind Your Mom near the start and the next morning I woke up and he went out and I didn't.

    Wow, this group gets tougher and tougher.I got as high as 152, but I didn't go far enough west early in the leg and missed the incoming wind. Since I don't Zezo, that is my excuse.
