pirate hello from trollville...

i have been here for a bit as a alurker then went to the caribean and returned....i have 2 boats of my own yet i travelled on someone elses boat while there. i learned to sail from a young age of 7 in hudson river , taught by a relative who was a tallshipman and merchant marine tallshipman....he sailed around the world in tallships--he taught us to sail as we grew up on board a sloop he owned which was built in the nate hereschoff yard in 1903.....i have an ericson 35mII and a formosa yankee clipper 41...am selling ericson and keeping the formosa, as i wish to sail her extensively in warmer waters than those in which my boats are kept ....i live aboard the formosa and repair her as i reside here.....am looking forward to cruising in her and hope to start soon.......

Welcome aboard.

San Diego, eh? The waters must be pretty cold there. Definitely head to warmer climates.

Cheers

Bill

Aloha Zee...and welcome to the forum. I've actually been thinking of relocating your way. Love the pictures of the Yankee...good choice.

Hello ZeeHag, from your old stomping grounds of the Hudson River. I am located in Stony Point, NY. About 12 miles North of the Tappan Zee Bridge( is that where you got the Zee from?) Welcome to this great group of informed, funny and considerate cruisers and sailors.
It sounds as though you have more than a little background in boating. Will your future plans carry you to the Caribbean?? That is my destination........leaving this Spring, going down the ICW....maybe we can meet in warmer waters one day!!

Aloha Zeehag,
Welcome aboard! Isn't Zee also a dutch word for sea? Good to have you here are you under the Coronado bridge? I've spent my share of time anchored and moored in San Diego on Navy destroyers and also sailing out of Coronado. Its a great place and the water is cold year round. Is Marina space still hard to come by?
Kind regards,
JohnL

Hello Zeehag -- dropped you a pm, and I thought to ask here as well. I am looking for a slip in the San Diego area -- been to Shelter Island a couple of times looking at marinas. I will be working north of SD, but decided to move my boat from LA (Long Beach) to SD to find a liveaboard slip. Any suggestions on some nice areas? (Defined as looking ok, with maybe some restaurants and groceries closeby).

Where in SD would you recommend looking? I have been to San Diego maybe three times in my life. Seems like a lot of coastline to investigate!

Thanks

Michael

hi michael---the slip rentals here in dago are running 16-18/ft whenya can find them--wiith a long waiting list----depending on size of boat...anywhere from 3 yrs and up.....i would consider , if relocating to dago is a necessity, looking into a temporary mooring for a while....might make the work of seekin gslippage more tolerable----this bay is huge but vewry small---most of the water heere is short and needs dredging frequently....yacht clubs have waiting lists and the marinas as well---there is a 3 yr wait list for permanent moorings, as well......i can run a check with the folks i know in marina work and see what is locatable for your lengtha nd needs if you would like.....

Have a 35 foot sailboat with a draft 4.8ft. I have been traveling down to SD the past couple of weekends -- with not much luck. Chula Vista has openings, but that is so far south and it would add almost another 20 mins on my commute to Oceanside.

Damn.

I take it you use a dinghy to get back and forth? How romantic is that!! Moored out there in bay... on your own against the elements.... dependent on your battery bank. I might have to look into the mooring option!

Thanks for your replies. Appreciate your information.


Michael

almopst sounds like my erixcson!!!! i have her on a mooring as well---isnt so bad----i take a kayak to the beach---gotta wear big boots--lots of heavy metals in the muck and mud.....but it really doesnt bother me unless i fall into the nasty stuff----did tha tonly once in 10 yrs-----soi am still ahead----rowing isnt such a bad deal---is a prep for cruising and helps keep ya in fighting trim, as it were---but a temporary mooring is only 260 for my field.....so isnt tooo bad....
