    Florida is swelling with people from out of state. You're literally pointing the finger at yourselves.

    Oh, that comment wasn't directed solely at you. Lots of people make comments about Florida Man. Hey, I laugh at these articles too. I have certainly met some native Floridians that make me cringe for various reasons. I'm just saying that Florida is not this bottomless reservoir of redneck...

    Thanks for that. I was debating using Knapps this weekend. I think I'll skip it.

    None of my family own or owned waterfront property. The older homes are actually more solid than the stick-built homes that were blown away. Every home my family owns is cinderblock on slab with beefy straps securing the roof to the main structure. One of my uncles has hurricane rated windows...

    Amazingly, all of my family's homes are still standing with roofs and windows intact and no water intrusion. I can hardly believe it.

    I wasn't expecting dockside delivery when I made that recommendation. Certainly some creativity would be required to select a functional destination address and also some driving to get there and back. The thing is, even if we said "Yeah, just run your engine daily to charge the batteries" she...

    Food, fixes and notes from the casual coastal sailor.

    @Elegua would have posted his Italian dish of tuna and beans but it's been 4-5 days now and the beans are still as hard as stone. I think he's burned through 7lbs of propane trying to soften them up. I think he bought these beans from a shady character on the side of the road who promised that...

    Well, you are in the middle of civilization. Solder and flux are readily available and numerous Chesapeake sailors would help get it to you.

    @Sweare Deep yes, the northerly from Ian this weekend might blow a lot of water out of the bay. It'll come back on Tuesday.

    I agree, he should NOT transit Knapp's or Kent Narrows. To visit Oxford, he'll need to take the long way around Black Walnut Point. ETA: I still say that he can anchor in San Domingo a bit further out. The other option is to simply take the Oxford ferry to Bellvue and hop an Uber to St. Mike's...

    I'm seeing 8 and 9 foot charted depths. As I said, that's MLLW depths. He should have more than that at normal tides.

    Apparently so! I assume you removed every scrap of cloth and canvas.

    Dude, those numbers are MLLW. Just be wary of any prolonged, hard, northerly or easterly blows and he'll be fine.

    All of my family except for my parents are in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers. How in the hell did your boat survive? Well, whatever luck you had, good for you. Glad you're safe. How long you'll need to run the engine kind of depends on your house battery bank setup. The larger it is, the longer...
