Brings back memories. When we first cruised down the East coast ('91), we entered the Chesapeake in late October/ November, having left from Vermont (Lake Champlain), with snow flying.Spent last weekend anchored in Still Pond, on the northern Chesapeake. Had a very nice evening, with only some high clouds drifting up from Hurricane Delta to make the sky a bit interesting.

After sunset Still Pond became even a little more still.

It’s a better brand of paint than I buy for sure. Too bad it only comes in one colour.Hi Michael, Carol the "Bead Lady" and her husband John had their studio in that building, as I recall. Their float house was towards the head of the bay. I wonder how they're doing these days? Also, the pictographs on the wall behind the house were interesting in how the First Nation people placed them and have remained intact after so many years.
I don't see the dear and the antelope playing. And where are the buffalo?
Jim, I'm trying to envision a fiberglass dinghy hitting a pot buoy so hard as to rupture the hull. I know you're telling the truth! Was the dinghy riding bow high? You say you were dragging a sea anchor, from the boat or from the dinghy (small, to keep it back?).Mid-September Cruise. Perry Creek (no pics) Duck Harbor and Bucks Harbor.

I sailed to Bucks Harbor from Duck Harbor in three hours flat in too much wind. I was hitting speeds up to 10kts a few times and trashed my fiberglass dink by running over lobster pots in Isle au Haut Bay, both sides of the dinghy had 10 inch cracks in the fiberglass. I was towing a sea anchor, but was going so fast I never realized what happened until I got to Bucks Harbor. In that wind, I couldn’t have done anything but cut it loose anyway. I wish I had pictures from underway but I could not have let go of the tiller that long.

Truth be told I should not have been out. I could not see staying at Duck Harbor with the Westerly wind sending big rollers right in to the cove.View attachment 186437
Tom, it has no branding, so I don’t know what it is, I’ve had it for almost 20 years. It was well used when I got it and has has a rough life since on the overcrowded Bayside dinghy dock. My friend thought it might be an early Puffin, but it is lighter than they are now. It wasn’t very heavily built, but I liked it because it’s light and row and tows well.Jim, I'm trying to envision a fiberglass dinghy hitting a pot buoy so hard as to rupture the hull.

It's just that I slam into them all the time with our dinghy and never thought about damage. Especially back in that area of the dinghy (seems like they would just glance off).
What kind of dinghy is that? Not a Puffin is it?
The whole ride sounds pretty hairy but I don't doubt the winds, especially westerlies in September. Maybe I won't go out this weekend.
