I was just outside watering my lawn....yes! in February! It sure would be a great day to go sailing! Did anyone go sailing on the bay this weekend?

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.

"John, It depends.  What model O'Day are we speaking about?  Who put the rails on in the first place?  Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are?  If yes, the rails are…"

"Has anyone ever removed your handrails for resealing?  I have a leak and I'm not sure if I need to remove them from the topside or from below in the salon. "

Resealing handrails on Oday 30

I'm going to attempt to reseal my handrails on our 84' Oday 30.  I noticed there are screw holes (teak plugs) both on the topside and down in the salon.  Does anyone know if both screws need to be removed to reseal or just the topside screw?See More
