  1. Nice work. What are your plans for her maiden voyage?
  2. Todd (CS-20.3) and I are going to go on a short overnight sailing trip leaving from Harborton, VA (this is on the Chesapeake Bay, eastern shore of VA) if anyone wants to join us. We are meeting at the public boat ramp around 9-10am on Friday, 4/29, returning sometime Saturday. Feel free to come along. There are a ton of excellent sparsely populated anchorages everywhere in this area; we'll pick one based on current conditions.
  3. My condolences. He was a pleasure to talk to.
  4. I have some of my wifes elastic hair bands on the sprits, and I just tuck the excess line under them. Works well. I think I got the idea from someone here.
  5. I agree Hirilonde. Hot coating rules. In colder temps I would put a coat on before I went to bed, set an alarm for 4:30 in the morning, and put another coat on before leaving for work. In a weird way it was kind of fun.
  6. Very cool. Inspiring to see this boat being built.
  7. For someone your size I would highly recommend building a CS 20.3 instead of a 17.3, even if you plan on sailing solo. I've completed several overnight solo cruises and never felt like it was too much boat for one person. The nice benefit of buying a kit is that it solves your marine plywood sourcing problem (which is hard enough in normal times, but with all the supply chain issues we are having, quality marine plywood might be extremely expensive if you can even find it in stock).
  8. Paul cruising by the dock. https://youtu.be/HHYc4k-E7wM
  9. Steve and his boat make an appearance is this video about 9:45.
  10. Thanks for the excellent trip report Steve. The Chesapeake Bay has to be one of the best small boat cruising grounds on the east coast, and Core Sounds seem to be custom designed for the bay. I see a wake in your picture .
  11. Thanks for the report. Looks like a great time. Tell us more about the bay crossing, what were the conditions and how did the boat sail?
  12. I have always simply pointed the bow into the wind in order to stop.
  13. Bring your Spindrift to the Messabout and sail with other Spindrift owners. There is no substitute for in-person learning.
