Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoob, if it makes you feel better on our first long trip I fouled the prop on a crab pot while trying to recover a winch cover that fallen overboard. Never did get that winch cover back but it was my first time ever over the side to unfoul the prop.

Scoobert's position at 1655 hrs (below). SE of Ocean City, New Jersey, and 27 nm from Cape May. Ocean City, Maryland is about 62 nm away. Which Ocean City are you talking about?

Two days i had shown the new crew how to stow lines.
One was ignored.
I know my hubby always asks where the lines are as soon as we leave the dock. All must be accounted for immediately or else the engine is in neutral.

If this is the extent of your problems you can count your blessings.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

My take is that it is actually a pleasure to see what has happened here. A lot of folks despaired of Scooby and told him not to go, me included. No matter if the naysayers were right or wrong, or if Scooby was being arrogant/pigheaded/reckless or just brave, he left anyway and then most folks since have done their best to help him on the way. He has become a fellow sailor and we are doing what we should all do and help one of those.

Scoob - You're right. It almost certainly won't be a fun ride. When you are more experienced, you can make a run like that. You can't do it safely with the level of experience you currently have. When the weather turns really rough, even little things cascade into major problems that easily become life-theatening. Worse, they are almost always compounded by exhaustion and diminished judgement.

About a month ago, my wife and i sailed in a rally for cruisers. We sailed for 27 1/2 hours closed hauled, tacking against a 30 knot wind and 7 foot waves (baltic waves, very short and steep). When we got there, we had a nights sleep, sailed the rally, drank and danced until 1 a.m., went to bed, got up at 8:00 and sailed 18 hours back again, this time running on a broad reach with the 40 knot wind over our shoulders, waves were 10 feet and some were breaking.

We managed to do that, but only because we are experienced. We were completely wiped out when we got home, and we were starting to make mistakes the last 6 hours or so, simply because we were exhausted.

So play it safe - if you and your wife continue sailing, you'll have lots of opportunities to run out where the water is deep and the waves high.

You don't need to do it your first time out.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

That and i need to break my dogs into the sea.
They were quite sick the first 24 hours out here.
This boat can handle far more then the crew can. Its proven that.

One thing i was correct on is my watch ability.
30+ hours is easy for me. The wife insists ob doing a shift, as does she force her sister. But i dont sleep, every hour i at least get up and check the radar.

Chincoteague bay and stay inside until the chesapeake bay? Would hate to go far north for the canal. Then i can scoot to norfolk before the weather turns too nasty. Storm starts tomorrow evening. I can be to ocean city by the am.
No you cannot. Go to Delaware Bay and take the canal to the Chesapeake with the forecast weather or wait.


Oh never mind looks like your past the Delaware.
