I used to have a boat in Chesapeake, I would not recommend. No wind
, or very little and cold in the winter. I love the scenery though, and inlets where you anchor
5 miles inland. If you have solar
, not the nest place to test and experiment
Charleston is a bit muddy to my taste to get yourself familiarized with your new boat
. I assume you would be running systems to check systems out and to learn: watermaker
, fridges and freezer
. All need clean water to operate. Or you may be getting problems later on.
If you can, I would into Florida
where the weather
is a bit better. I assume that you will be doing some work
, day sailing
, just playing around the boat and maybe try a short trip to the Bahamas
(when they can let you in). Don't wait until the hurricane
season to do that!
