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.

Questions From a new B40 Owner

Hi All - I'm the proud new owner of an '11 B40.  2 cabin model with 54hp yanmar, furling main.  Have had the boat for a few weeks now and about 120 miles of sailing (and motoring).  Love it, but I have a few questions about wiring, rig tuning, plumbing, etc. and I'm hoping to find one or some of you to help.1.  The shower sump pump will run once the water level activates the float switch, pump the sump dry (kind of a pulsing suction, not smooth like the bilge pump), then enough water will flow…See More

teleflex engine control problems

I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly.  But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse.  Once it passes that point it moves smoothly.   And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult.  I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
