Me too. Hope to be making/installing all new battery cables. Good times!

btw - I have the swaging tool if others need cables.

Doing the same. Leaving tomorrow for 5 days on the upper Chesapeake. Testing a bunch of new installs. Have been on hold for 6 weeks waiting out the ban. Wind is blowing 15-25 knots right now with 30+ gusts forecast for tonight. Tomorrow should be a little tamer.
Enjoy your trip Navman.

I will be getting on the water on Friday. Maybe we will pass each other or may be going in the same direction by then (South). HAVE A GREAT SAIL, you picked a good week for it!! You can try hailing me on VHF "The Optimist II "

Storm jib is on the boat and the new main has a three reefs and they are all rigged. Sailing on Sunday heading south with the current I hit 9,3, average speeds were 8.2 - 8.8. When I turned around I was still doing 6+ against the current. Needless to say the wind was honkin. Next time down to the boat ( 6th) it will be all set for the DMV trip. How is everyone else making out with their preparations?

Good Morning Don,
Discovery's on-going projects will not be complete for at least three weeks. So until I do a sea trial I am not expecting to be ready till late June.
Wow, that is some sail you had.

Just checked in this website after a long hiatus. I sail "Wild Blue" - a 1998 E380 out of Annapolis Landing Marina. Most of my sailing is day sailing with occasional overnights depending on weather and how much time I have available - - live in Newtown PA and work in Biotech. Would love to keep abreast of activities in the Annapolis area. Please add me to your email list.

Hello Vince,

Welcome aboard the Chesapeake Bay Ericson Club. You will be added to the contact list and included in all club emails. The club is in hiatus at this moment due to the on-going quarantine. When things open up we will resume club activities.

You will receive an email shortly welcoming you to the club.

Vince - Welcome to the group.

Don and others - After having two contracts to sell Karens' house fall through she has a new one that we think will finally go through. I'm bringing this up because of the timing, in that her birthday is June 12 and the move out is June 13 and move into the new house is June 17.

And I'd like to introduce Samantha!
:D

Unfortunately with COVID, I just get to run deliveries for my sons' family and see them through the sliding glass door, which is why the reflection in the upper left.
:(
