Newbies

Hi everyone. My wife (Suzette) and I (Ken) are the proud new owners of a Mariner 36 foot sloop rigged sailboat. The boat is presently located in Brunswick,GA. We are planning on moving her to "Isle of Hope" marina in Savannah via the outside to Saint Catherine's Sound, and then up the ICW to the marina. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Re: Newbies

Hiya Ken and Suzette! Congratulations on your new boat! Take your time and learn everything on her; engine, sails, electrical, electronics, propulsion, hardware... Practicing hands-on electro/mechanical troubleshooting will save you a bundle down the road. Sail away and have a ball!

Hi Ken and Suzette,

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new purchase.

Only advise I can offer is stay in the channel and don't run aground.

Seriously, check on the latest comments about shoaling and problems in the ICW online before you go. If you haven't found them already go to

Cruiser's Net OR

https://activecaptain.com/X.php

and check out your planned route.

Re: Newbies

Stede, that's about 80 miles. Do you plan on doing 2 separate legs(Ocean and ICW)?
The ICW near St Catherine's is a very winding path as opposed to a straight shot to either Ossabaw or Wassaw sound, which could be done in a long day with favorable winds.
Lots of shoaling in that area also.

Re: Newbies

Thanks for the welcome aboard. Sounds like good advice to us. "Make sure the boat works, and watch where you take her!" lol!

Re: Newbies

Hi " Out of Control." We're planning on moving the boat over the labor day weekend.We'll have (3) days to "get'er done! ha!ha! It" s about 10 miles to open water for the boat now. I thought we could sail the outside (weather permitting)- Altamaha Sound up to St.Catherine's the first day and spend the night at Milkenney's Marina. Then the following day go back to the outside (weather permitting) and sail up to the Wilmington River. If weather's not good for the sail, we'll go up the ICW.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here.

Stede
Sounds like a good plan. Hopefully the Atlantic basin cooperates and the trades kick up.

Re: Newbies

SkiperJohn.. The Mariner we purchased is a Peter Canning design.Built in New Hampshire. She's a robust ole girl! Pete 33458...You are quite observant in regards to my posts. They were in a previous life though, so to speak. I use to be a frequent visitor here, but I went through a rough period and stopped coming. But now, I have a wonderful new wife (Suzette), and a new (to us anyway) beautiful boat. So we are indeed "Newbies." D&D.....thanks for the warm welcome. Always good to hear from brothers, and sisters of the cloth.

We are currently looking at purchasing a 1980 Mariner 36. We know the prior owner, are comfortable with its condition, and can buy at a fair price. Can you share your thoughts on how you are enjoying yours?
Thanks
