Happy New Year Chesapeake & Potomac Sailors.
Everybody must be busy... This is a very quiet group.
We're going skiing tomorrow at SkiWhitetail.
Anybody here ski or snowboard?

I live at the Southern end of the Chesapeake Bay in Hampton, VA. I race out of Hampton YC on Wed nights and out of Old Point Comfort YC and Ft Monroe on Saturdays as crew. I spent several years working on cruising yachts all over the world....lets trade stories!

Hi. Here in Takoma Park, MD, please - no anti-nuke zone jokes! I hear them a lot. Nice earnest guy looking to sail, crew on East Coast from Annapolis to Key West. Or the Caribbean if you;re going that way. I've not got a boat yet, unless you count my 14' kayak.

"Yep, I too have snapped a couple of the clam shell drain covers off. I have a couple of spares, but may or may not replace this time. The slack didn't seem to be the ultimate cause. Seems that wind/tide shifts and wake surge would cause the…"

"On Longhawk we use a Rocna 20KG. I changed out the chain gypsy when new to one that handles 5/16 high Test chain. Then I went with 175 ft of 5/16 HT chain tailed with 200 ft of three strand.(overkill, but I had the rode as supplied new). For a short…"
