Re: Intro to the forum. S/V Rebel Yell, 1937 Joseph Uhl Schooner

Awesome stuff Zach.... You're doing great!

Only advice I can give (as there is so much) is... Respect the enormity and dangers of your ambitious objective....

A forced schedule (itinerary too) is a very dangerous schedule....

re maiden voyage.... google "sailing superstitions"

Have fun bud.... AND.... We're all here at the ready when you need some help....

Look at all the Mississippi folks! HappyMdRSailor where in North Mississippi do you live? We moved down to Ocean Springs from Columbus over five years ago.

Rebel_Yell where will you have her docked in Mississippi? I worked on the Biloxi Schooner with an 82 year old captain who is an amazing wealth of knowledge. I currently live in Ocean Springs where my son sails on the high school team.

Beautiful boat. Even my son has learned to appreciate the beauty of an old wooden boat.

Interesting start to the trip. Left San Pedro on Wednesday 1800 into a light SE wind and motor sailed south making 5kts or so. Developed a small oil leak while approx 5mi W of Newport Beach and decided to make for the anchorage in Newport Harbor. Fixed the leak the next day and headed back out. Set sail making 2-3kts into SE wind. Lost oil pressure to new leak and wind died leaving us adrift approx

After 15-20hrs becalmed, a W wind picked up and we made Dana Point Harbor under sail with no problems. 3days 45 mi. Kind of an inauspicious start but we are safe and having a blast!

Thanks for the kind words and advice HappyMdRSailor and iSaint. I plan to keep her in Gulfport's new small craft harbor once I get to MS.

You Bet!

Sounds like you guys are on the PERFECT sailing schedule already.... Some days will definitely be better legs.... Keep up this positive attitude, and you will always be pleased with your progress!

Re: Intro to the forum. S/V Rebel Yell, 1937 Joseph Uhl Schooner

We made it to Cabo! 12 days out from Ensenada. Main blew off the track rounding the headland to Bahia Tortuga and a fuel line prob caused a 24hr delay at Mag Bay, but we have been able to make repairs ourselves and continue on. We cross from Cabo to Puerto Vallarta tomorrow! Having a blast and feeling confident in the vessel and our ability to fix problems!

Very nice, fixing things anytime but especially underway yourself is a great feeling for sure... Thanks for update!

Great stuff Zach!

Thanks for the update... I was checking in here and the blog, and got to wondering how you were making out....

Sounds like things are going just as smooth as they could be... Keep it up!

Welcome to the forum Zach, it looks like you are having a great adventure, bon voyage! I have a special place in my heart for classic wooden vessels.

Loving Manzanillo and Las Hadas! Anyone know of a ways/marine railway between Manzanillo & Panama for a haul out? We lost the port worm shoe in a small storm crossing from Cabo and need minor repairs. Click image for larger version

Re: Intro to the forum. S/V Rebel Yell, 1937 Joseph Uhl Schooner

Zach, you are a brave lad, I've pined for a wooden schooner a long time, never brave enough to make the committment. Rebel Yell, she tugs at my heart. I'm at your service if you need a navigator, cook, mechanic, or watch captain. The only thing better than owning a fine ship like Rebel Yell is having a good friend who owns her. Good Luck! Eddie
