In Topic: I'm in the Chesapeake: Where the Hell is Everyone?

Yesterday, 11:28 PM

I should probably start a new thread: I'm on the ICW, where the hell is everyone?  I've anchored out the last 3 nights in what Active Captain describes as popular anchorages, and have not seen another boat--  and this is on Labor Day weekend.

 

I'm in Bellhaven, NC at the moment: which makes Crisfield, MD look thriving.


In Topic: Inner forestay (solent stay) for storm sail

Have you though about reinforcement of the deck where the inner forestay will attach?  Is a good sized backing plate enough?

We sailed over to Crisfield in the same breeze.  We reefed as well.  I'm at Gwynn Island (VA) at the moment.  The winds were light but we sailed anyway.  Norfolk tomorrow.

Wish I were in the market!  Would be so great to go cruising on a Saga 35!  Or live aboard!

Not if you want a tiller.

 

And I'd cross the Baba off the list if you don't want wood topside.  Those boats are a teak forest.

 

I'd suggest something like a Waquiez Centurion, a Hallberg Rassy 31 or a Contest 33.  But you would have to give up on the tiller.

LOL.  Crisfield is the last place on the Eastern shore where you can rent a car--that's why we are here.  We have to take someone back to Lewes, DE, and she didn't have time to sail down to Norfolk, which is a longer drive anyway.
