    Fisheries Supply

    The guy who maintains the website for my business told me a couple of years ago that it needed to be redesigned to be mobil friendly.  When I said that I regularly received compliments on the site he said it didn't matter.  Google wanted it mobile friendly. Google gets what Google wants.  And I...

    No need for a boom gallows when you can just use an old mattress.

    Fall Cruising during COVID

    Yes.  I live in Bethlehem, PA and work in Flemington, NJ.  Riverside is much closer to both than Rock Hall.   The winter maintenance and chores are much easier to accomplish here.

    Fall Cruising during COVID

    My ex-business partner and I brought Easy Wind up to Riverside, NJ on Friday and Saturday.  Crossed Swan Point bar at high tide in the wind and rain at 1st light Friday morning then sailed up to the Elk into a stiff northwesterly breeze.   Spent Friday night in Chesapeake City then headed up...

    Importing a EU sailboat into US

    I can't speak to the legal requirements.  But the boat itself should be fairly easy to sell if you get that stuff worked out. When I bought my 2013 J53 in 2017 there were only 3 for sale on the East Coast.   I looked at the one being brokered by Atlantic Cruising in Annapolis and I made an...

    I'm a moron so help me spend my money.

    There is a boat for that too.  After extensive sea trials it turns out that with Chubby Girls floating might be optional.

    I will take the John Deere.  Looks like a late 30's 'B' maybe.

    Steamed Crab

    "A wedding cake catamaran 3 tiers high blasted past us to occupy the single space remaining at the head of the creek. 5 "bros" clambered out practically shouting at each other. They jumped in their powered dinghy and zipped up and down the creek shouting like morons.  The bugs came out and...

    We passed on the Oysterboys concert in Shaw Bay today.  The wind was just too good.

    Yep.  Easy Wind. Leaving St. Michaels for Rock Hall when the 1st Mate gets up.  Should be another nice day out there.

    Steamed Crab

    Wednesday we sailed from Solomons to the Dividing Creek off the Wye East.  Got an early start. Wind was steady around 10 - 12 kts. out of the northeast.  The heavy downpours were from just below Cove Point light to the mouth of the Choptank.  By the time we passed Sharp's Island light the rain...

    anybody board the First 53 at the Annapolis Show?

    The 1st mate and I walked the boat after making an appointment.  She would take it.  As long as we were thumbing through the Wishbook, I told her I thought the Outbound 56 was a more practical ride. Then I asked the French engineer from the design team about the lack of a Nav station...

    Chesapeake 2019

    We were anchored by the horse farm at Gibson Island when the 40 kt blast came through Sunday night.  Our Manson Supreme held fast (at 5:1) but we laid over quite a bit when it hit.  A large Southerly dragged a few hundred feet before grabbing again.  There only a half dozen boats out that night...

    Cruising the Chesapeake in middle June

    We have been in Rock Hall for a few years.  A nice loop starts with a sail across the Bay into the Magothy River. Sail around Gibson Island and drop the hook in Eagle Cove across from the horse farm.  Well protected in all directions.  Next morning head out of the Magothy, under the Bay Bridge...

    Aground in New Jersey

    Later found out it was his 2nd grounding in Jersey.  The TowboatUS guy couldn't wait for the guy to get out of his territory.
