Thanks to all for the warm welcome and words of wisdom. To be clear, I have 17 years of boating
experience and have taken safety
course twice. Sailing experience is what I lack. I have been reading a lot online and working on the boat every Saturday to clean it up and familiarize myself with the systems. Yes, close all sea cocks!! My brother is a mechanic
, so he's going along to be the engineer
. My other brother is a professional firefighter, so we shouldn't burn it down. I'm planning to sail only in good weather
toward the end of this month. Going from Deale Maryland
to Lancaster VA on Rappahannock River. We are so excited that we're about crapping our pants. Keep the ideas coming. I need to hear all the little "darn I should have thought of thats"
