  1. reef early and often. you're right; proper planning prevents waves pissing down your foulies.
  2. On the lake huron side, 1970s designs fare well.
  3. Shareholder implies equity - is the membership considering selling the property?
  4. Bayview normally welcomes transients and I don't know what our current policy is - but our club is under construction, our temporary clubhouse sank, we are having the parking lot resurfaced - not sure it's where you want to be... and yes, don't cross the border.
  5. You're going the fun way. Suggest going out the South Channel rather than the cut off (it adds like 20 mins to your trip, but is much more scenic). No real reason to stop along the way - downhill, it's only a 6 hour journey. Once in Detroit - see if you can score a slip at DYC through reciprocity - if not that, then suggest Milliken State Park state marina - easy to walk or ride a bike/scooter downtown. State rates, so it's cheap.
  6. They do crosswords in bed, but aren't that confident.
  7. Thanks, all for the encouragement. Turned out to be a piece of cake (even with our jury-rigged outboard strapped on the back). Had a nice downwind run from East Hampton to NYC (~18 hours). Full ride from East Hampton to Albany was a week. Stopped at: - City Island (cat nap), - Liberty Landing (Gas) - 79th street (avoid tide, rest, & provisions), - Alpine State Park, Shadows Marina, - Castleton (mast down - we brought our own mast supports, but they had a selection of abandoned supports we were able to peruse and improve our own), - Waterford Welcome Marina (
  8. Momentum? I've been doing it since I was a kid. 33 now. I hate it, but don't know what else to do.
  9. How would we know the population of boats that have considered doing the race but have chosen not to because of cost and complication and intimidation of safety equipment?
  10. Races run this way make me not want to participate - even in a beer can, it's frustrating to not get flags/courses/horns/finishes correct. I think asking people to shape up is quite alright. I've done serious and beercan RC, and would not be offended to be called out if I was not on my game.
  11. Would it be more conservative to go south of long island. What do you use for keeping track of tides? Book? App?
  12. I just bought my 3rd C&C 35-1 in NY and I need to get it back to Detroit. My justification for the $ is that I'm bored AF and the Erie Canal would be a bucket list item. Plus it's my old man's 80th B-day in May and he is stoked to do this together. The boat is in East Hampton NY and I can probably leave as early as April 15 and need to be in Detroit by July 1 (but goal is June 1). I read that the Erie canal opens May 21. I'm told there might be closures that would force me to go via Oswego, but I like the idea of the Erie staying protected. I literally know nothing... bought boa
  13. Never sell the boat. We are on season #50; some of the older brag flags are getting a little tired.
  14. All of us are wondering what happened though.
  15. We use a freeflying dazy with steel luff cable on our C&C 35-1.
