    Off Soundings Series and low pressure systems.

    Going to be a nice weekend.  Slight chance (20%) of light showers, but breeze throughout Friday and Sat.  Will be there in the multi-hull class.

    Chesapeake Marina/Location Recommendations - fall/winter/spring

    I kept our boat in Hampton for 15 years prior to moving north to Mystic.  I still have a small townhouse in Williamsburg VA to allow my wife & I to see family and friends.  We remain members of Hampton YC after being here in Mystic for the last 6 years- it's a great place with great sailors...

    RIP Bruce Kirby

    Sorry to read of his passing.  He had an exciting, long life and has a place in sailing history.

    thru hulls close or open

    Yup, same here.  Double clamp the raw water intake for engine cooling and keep it open.  You will never overheat your engine when you're in a hurry to get off the mooring.

    Shipping a sailboat

    Shipped our O-34 from Upstate NY (Rochester area) to Hampton Roads, VA in 2009.  Cost at that time was just over $3K.  You can find deals if your timeline is flexible through U-Ship .

    Retro Boat - Olson 30?

    Definitely waiting on the Olson 30 .  I dry-sailed hull #111 in the southern Chesapeake for 10 years.  Loved that boat.

    Replacement upholstery anarchy

    I replaced our interior cushions 2 years ago using Sunbrella interior.  I reached out to the local auto upholstery shop who worked with me to deliver cushions that suit us.  He took the old cushions and used them as templates to make new ones.  We're extremely happy with the finished product.

    Rudders and roundup

    Not intending to lecture, but to share my experience.  I own a 1989 Olson 34, having bought it from the original owner in 2009.  The boat tends to round to weather when she starts to heel.  A feeling I was not accustomed to from my earlier experience.  I also found that the boat would rebound up...

    Summer reading ideas

    Read Nathaniel Philbrick.  Right now, I recommend "In the Hurricane's Eye"  The story of George Washington, as seen from the water during the revolution.  Get away from the chaos of the "protests" and see what George was all about. Also, others by Philbrick are great.  I've also read, and...
