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.

I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More

Sailing on . . .

Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road.  To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language.
