Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Now you know why most sailors prefer 6v deep cycle batteries. They weigh a whole lot less the the monster 4ds. Lucky for you they were not 8ds.. Good luck on sailing today. Keep the Aleve level up with regular doses.....

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoob -
Next time you need to lift something heavy like a 4d, think about how you can use mechanical leverage, e.g.
1) loop around boom
2) snatch block (or multiple snatch blocks to route line to winch)
3) multipart tackle or use cockpit winch

The details may vary but you get the idea. Sorry about your back.

Lie with calves resting on a chair or other raised surface. That will help relax those muscles.

The key to avoiding back strain is keeping up your core strength. Take a look at a muscle chart and you'll see the back muscles are connected to the pelvis bone. Start doing crunches daily while your calves are on the chair. Work up the reps over time to at least 100

Not sure where Scoob's is but my two cents are DO NOT TRY THE STONO INLET. Come down the river from Charleston harbor. ...and $400.00 is to much for Sunset Cay. You can get slips there for $250.00 ish if you talk to the right slip owner.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Not sure about the long term slip costs but we like the Charleston Resort and Marina on the Cooper. Great facility with "water taxi" to downtown. Worth a look but, again, I don't know about their long term slip rates. They were very competitive for a night or two.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Sabray, a little thin skinned there? It was very profound. A little over the top in my opinion, but that's what it was, my opinion. Nice jesture though. Count to ten...;-)

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Buzzards Roost on the Stono is where I spent a winter. It was affordable, and had some local color for sure. I think that is now St Johns, and a whole 'nother program...

I also like Chas Harbor Marina at Patriots Point, Scott. Is that the one you are referencing? They have nice floating docks and convenient to Sullivans, Isle of Palms, etc where our sisters live. I have not spent time in Bohicket, but I really like it down there from memory. Wadmalaw, and down that way is S W E E T. I think that is where Ross is, where I bought some Yanmar parts. I would love to have a few hundred acres down that way... on deep water. Chas. Maritime Center is definitely a cool spot for hanging out in town.

Coming in Stono would be a bad ending. He's got more sense than that at this point, or maybe I missed something about his plan to pass the harbor entrance by. I've been Out Edisto. I would go out Edisto to Chas Harbor to avoid Elliots Cut or Wappoo Creek or whatever it is with the wicked currents. I met a tug going down current once and the current was so strong from astern I had limited steerageway. Scared the crap out of me, and well, it was more fun to go offshore and sail when I could anyway. I don't know if N Edisto is recommended though, not my home waters.

A quick virtual DR plot puts him about N 33° 20' 55" , W 78° 45' 39", but no idea really. Somewhere in Long Bay. He could be in Calabash Creek for all we know

Claiming plagiarism was a little over the top for a guy who forgot to cite the author, but thoughtful of you to expose his "guilt" to those of us who were sure that sabray had just crafted that. Just my opinion that your post was a little pedantic in a tender moment , but southern sensibilities can make one seem a fragile flower at times

Especially generous to follow up with the patronizing "count to ten" tripe. That was a nice touch.

Good question. Do they turn up today, heave to and show up Tuesday morning or decide to press on south of Charleston?
