hi Jim, Thanks for the request. I am sailing on Chesapeake Bay. Although I have taken Final Lee up to Nantucket on her first year of ownership and last year around the Delmarva Pennisula. So far so good.
Hi Jim: thx for your friend request...looking forward to chatting about boats and sailing with you. Years ago while working for a US company was interviewing for a job in NJ...did search out the Haverstraw Marina but as the job fell through never did move down there. I currently live in Ottawa, Canada and keep my boat in Kingston at the eastern end of Lake Ontario right at the entrance to the St. Lawrence River and 1'000 Islands area. Is a lovely area but mostly motoring....gotta go out into the lake for good sailing.
Wow, Jim, you are a great find. I've had many a fine lobster dinner at Bahr's with my parents. What I really remember was their bread puffs. Hm, yum. I will call them to get more information. There website shows they have a transient dock, but I am sure my budget would do better anchoring. Any information you can garner for me is appreciated. Thanks,
I will be sailing up your way this summer. Should be arriving by June 10. Problem is finding a suitable place to anchor for about a week until I begin my return trip back to Florida. I am hoping to anchor in Sandy Hook. Any information you can provide would be great.
Thanks Jim ...only starting! ...Will fly to Portugal next Summer to visit marinas ..hope to move my boat south ..the Irish weather is challenging to say the least! Great photos ..was looking at them yesterday ...just guessing but with a name like Malone must be some Irish blood there somewhere? Cheers

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"
"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible.
I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"
"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning?????
(Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"
"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck
