Summer Sailing Trip, Mobile Bay Alabama to Port St. Joseph Florida.

We Set sail Tuesday morning destined for Port St. Joe.  This is our first over night sailing trip.  Forecast is for good winds and calm seas.  We have a nice sail out of the bay, heading south till we can clear the Mobile ship channel.  We head east staying about 3-5 miles of shore, we are sailing on a beam reach winds out of the south.  It’s a fantastic sail, I head below to…

trip on the gulf.

No pics to post yet, but just finished an awesome trip from Mobile bay to Port St. Josehp FL. what a trip. did an over night pasage there, and one on the way back.  It was great weather, lil warm, but thats part of it.  I am so stoked, want to go for another open water passage.  I took the 4-7 watch so I could see the sun rise, ;) I got to see the sunset as well being the skipper I was up at all hours checking things, Gosh I love this sailing on open water, We out ran a storm first passage…

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
