    turning on to 82 y/o started to introduce some changes on my sailing/cruising
    getting my Cape Dory 30 ready to sail south or the remaining of the season.

    Spending more time and money in marinas,I accept that as the price to continue sailing/cruising.
    The only fear I have is losing my boat, sailing shallow and coral reef waters alone.
    Have plenty of experience sailing the San Blas islands, no problems, but we were 2,one person always looking and reading the water and given instructions.
    Not sure what will be like depending on marinas in the Bahamas and what it is like, in a slip, what the areas with marinas offer? like walking opportunities, places to visit, etc.

    I am content with life in my boat and having some coffee shop by, an informal eating place, always curious about people.

    Any comments regarding the Bahamas you may like to share will be appreciated.

    thank you

    hope you have worked out the "sunglasses situation"

    Going way back on the forums, you commented about a CSK 52' cat you were considering.

    Could you tell me your finding about the boat?
    I am in contact with the current owner and he's not sure if it was epoxy or poly laid up.
    Any and all info you could provide would be most helpful.
    Thanks ,

    Hi, yes, I remember the boat and - if memory serves me - the fuel filters! I'm intending to be back in St. Anthony next week, as my lasy port of call before heading oof shore to the Azores. Good to be in touch. What are your plans (in Jello)? Fair winds.

    I noticed a comment you made about ice in Chesapeake City and if time permits, I was hoping you could provide additional comments about ice and currents in the canal and the bay. I have sailed down from NYC but have never made the trip up the bay and through to the Delaware River. I am looking at buying a boat in lower Maryland and was unsure if I should go on the outside or on the inside.

    What is the ice like on the canal and bay right now? If it is bad, when is it likely to allow a decent passage?

    Does the Chesapeake Bay have a significant current? Also, is the Chesapeake, say the upper two thirds, affected by the tide? The Hudson can experience a tide up to 150 miles up the river and was wondering the the same is true for the Chesapeake.

    Finally, any thoughts you may have about sailing up the Chesapeake would be greatly appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Dave Borgioli

    Hi - I saw a comment that you made in a forum about boat heaters regarding having your boat in Lewisporte, Newfoundland a couple of years ago. I am planning on keeping my Vancouver 32 in Lewisporte during the winter 2014-15 after sailing up from Maryland and have some questions about the facilities and possible tax problems. Let me know if you would be willing to answer a few questions.

    Never used this feature either so am late as well. Rigpa was one of those experiences that I guess all involved will never forget. I am doing deliveries these days to push through the tough economy. Went to Cartagena, Colombia on a Catalina 32 in July!

    Howard, Cool to see you here. I am shy but thought I would give my regards to you and Doris. Still think about you all and Tony sometimes. I learned a lesson for sure in that experience! One in a whole life of lessons hopefully. Still young and lousy but keep trying to find out who I am. It is a funny world. Richard
