    We do that sometimes. The only thing that makes it suck is when you are going north and the wind is 6 knots form the south and you end up traveling with 0 apparent wind in a cloud of exhaust. OTOH if you get a breeze it is a delight

    Immigrant Children

    I have said this about 1,000 times. If anyone *really had the slightest thought of fixing immigration*, give any illegal a green card and $5,000 for turning in his American employer and make said American do 5 years minimum. People could sneak in and out all day long, but they wouldn't because there would be no jobs for them This will NEVER happen though. Too many of the donor class want the cheap labor around

    Maine is incredible. We are going back in August. Best thing is getting the morning paper in a wool sweater and reading about a heat wave in DC * I have never sailed all the way there. We drive up. It does not fit into a 2 week vacation and even 3 is tight. Plenty of boats up there are owned by people out of state that drive up for their summer vacation. Maine is a great place to buy a used boat - many of them are unrigged and stored in a shed except for the summer vacation sail. Essentially 1 year Florida use = probably 15 years of Maine use. Funny thing - we had a Boston Whaler one year up there with a nasty loud outboard. We saw an anchored boat from Kent Island and said hi, we are from there too. They contemplated the Whaler and asked how long it took us to get to Bar Harbor. I cracked up and said I would be deaf if I took this noisy thing all the way up the coast and pointed at the Maine registration

    A Bitch Slap Courtesy of George Will - Vote Democratic

    This - I drive by about 100 signs every day about people I can't vote for.

    George Will hits it out of the park I love this line: Consider the melancholy example of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), who wagered his dignity on the patently false proposition that it is possible to have sustained transactions with today’s president, this Vesuvius of mendacities, without being degraded.

    E-nav on the cheap

    Navionics on I-devices is about 100x better than iNavX. Too bad it will not take AIS data

    I have been to Tangier about 20-30 times in the fall and winter. ONCE in the summer and that was ENOUGH BTW - here is summer ICW Off technique. You spray you, your pillow, the sheets, and pretty much everything else

    When my wife managed to end up in the water in November the hard dinghy got traded for a RIB about "right f-ng now". Just sayin.........

    The lower Shore is not a place I want to be in bug season. There is a reason civilization ends at Cambridge If you go up the Choptank, you can go to the back door of Saint Mike's

    I have not seen a nettle here. Being at a marina sans air-conditioning can really be nasty. It seems about 20 degrees hotter than being anchored 1/4 mile away with the boat aimed into whatever wind there is. I have resorted to anchoring out at bedtime and coming back in the morning. There is a 12,000 BTU air conditioner used on sale for $250 at our local consignment shop. My wife is hinting it might be a nice thing to have. That $250 is a starting point though, lots of ducts and hoses to buy......... EDIT - Haven Harbor in Rock Hall has a deal for $20/day to use their dinghy dock, pool, and showers. My wife really likes that

    1st Amendment vs Treason?

    There is no lower bound of what one should do as long as the "government is asking you to do it"? We hung people for this shit after WW II
