We were going to haul out today, but foul weather and extremely high tide along with all the other big boats getting craned out made impossible. So we moored Tidbit in Foundry Cove just south of the boat club. Used an old mooring and set a large anchor just in case.

Get a little extra sailing time too ;)

Haul out? But man, summer is nearly here, lots of time for sailing. Oh sorry, wrong hemisphere :p. Is it really too cold to sail there in winter? Winter must be horrible for you guys, no sailing and you have us posting summer threads.

I tell you, these infernal confusion engines are just a fad, they won't take on you know. I didn't have to wait all spring for a turbo, because steam is king :D

Joe,

You know where you can get your off-season sailing jones taken care of:

Fresh from her late summer haul out and ready for the hot stove season.

New running rigging this year. It's Hempex line and Ording blocks. Both secured through Gordon Laco (http://www.gordonlaco.com/marine_rigging.htm). Steven Bauer suggested I contact him and it worked out fine.

I'll see how the Hempex holds up as it's Polypropylene. Anyone have experience with this manila-like line?

Hove to off Sloop Point and yes the stove was fired up.


Sorry for the hijack, but grab Phil and come on down.

As the chosen say, next year in Tid Bit.

We don't have any liquid water here outdoors from November to March, except in the main channel of the Mississippi and the faster-moving parts of some streams. There are iceboats for the real die-hards.

You'll need to check it every day, with an anchor and a mooring you're going to get a rats nest and might end up disconnecting the lot.

Do you know a diver who can check the mooring for you, the mooring alone is by far the best.

I plan on checking on her everyday, if the weather keeps up like this I don't think she will be in for long. But I have set the anchor just forward with a little slack in the line. There is no divers - its not that kind of place and to the best of my knowledge the mooring is probably an old radiator. But the cove is pretty protected so we will see.

SYC requires 8 hrs minimum. They hold a work day in early summer when most member put in their hours. It's a great chance to see old friends and catch up on the news. It's amazing how much work gets done in a single day. This year I spent the day installing safety egress ladders and fire extinguisher brackets on all the docks.

What's the plans for Tidbit over the winter months? Any plans for some shop time, or is it outside storage.

I'm going down to the Lahave River Yacht Club tomorrow morning to help haul out the floating docks for the season. Supposed to be overcast, 45 deg with possibility of rain, and light winds. Sounds like hot rum toddies at noon...

I'm hoping it rains like hell and the weekend is a washout...I'm bound for East Hampton with Nancy, and I still owe 12 hours!
The working boat club is cheap in $, expensive in time...But it's a great way to see your pals...
PS Russ, how late can we sail Sjogin?

Phil,

Usually the Bay's ice free till January. Let's try for a November sail.

Regardless, the Sardine works all season.

Suprised to hear you have tides that far up the Hudson, How far up do they go?

Why are you pulling her out so soon? You probably have another easy 2 months of soft water.

Talisman will come out next week - we had snow yesterday! :eek: I'll probably go out two or three more times before then. Plus the trip to the yard to have the mast pulled.
