You’re lucky! We’re in a hot harbor that eats zincs like candy.
Definitely avoid covering the paddle wheel with a sling, but mine was covered once by a sling during haul out, but the half round projections on either side of the paddle wheel protected it, so no damage done.You’re lucky! We’re in a hot harbor that eats zincs like candy.
As long as the slings miss the paddle wheel no problem, but it could be a problem if it’s covered. At least that’s the recommendation here.
I enjoy your posts, JRT. They remind me of the times I first took my C310 out for sails down in Florida. Please keep them coming.
A micro burst can be a scary thing. We were on a mooring at Cuttyhunk Island in MA a few years ago when a micro burst hit. Winds were recorded at 88 mph. All the moorings in the harbor held, but a few boats anchored in the Bay were pushed up onto the beach. The noise from the wind was incredible. Up until then, the highest wind we had seen on Andante was 60 mph.Well had an exciting August down here. A micro burst storm hit the marina and half the docks broke free and drifted into the center. Minor cosmetic damage from what I was told and luckily RoseLeigh was on the docks that didn't break free and was outside the area that hit.

Did you get some good practice this summer on putting in your reefs?John, very cool!
@Hayden Watson has given me a great procedure for reefing on the fly in less than 60 seconds, I'm sure he will be willing to share.
It's good experience for you and your daughter, you know your boat can handle it, now you know you can too.
I bet those waves surprised you a bit though!
