Since you like to ride, check out Tobermory as a stop. (Our personal favorite) It has been awhile but Harmony Acres used to come to the boat basin (marina) in the Tub and pick up folks that wanted to horseback ride and eat at their restaurant, which we did several times. The dock master, a German named Klaus, would call for us to arrange a time to be picked up. Harmony Acres has a camp ground there, so we were able to get cleaned up afterwords. Then on to a gourmet dinner prepared by the students from the local culinary school. We were introduced to the Pelee Island Winery Gewurztraminer (made in Ontario Canada) there at Harmony Acres. It went famously with the fish they served to us. It is a fabulous wine, our favorite Gewurztraminer.
Love your photos.. !!!!!!!
We had horse and rode them over part of Ontario, exploring, camping with them.
Now that part of our lives is history but the sailing will continue.
Love your boat.. You're living our dream.

"Peter, I've also lost the scupper covers. I installed rubber pipe insulation over each side of the bridle and it works well in keeping the bridle from rubbing on the covers. . They'll need to be replaced periodically as they'll get…"
"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…"
"Sam, we are the essentially the same. Using the same mantus bridle as you. Quick question to you and any others using a bridle. We had the bridle rubbing the sides of the bow in a recent storm and it ended up snapping off 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…"
