Do you use bubblers to keep the hull from freezing over there?Do you need to get an ice report for that sail? Here is what a day sail on the Chesapeake looks like right now.
Sorry, didn't mean to mislead. That is a picture from the Maine Ice Boat organization. Dragonfly is an O'day mariner 19 that hasn't been fixed up to launch yet.I must say that little dragonfly is a beautiful thing. I don't think it would be good for Mexico without a few minor modifications. Great photo thank you.
Indeed. It was a day too far into the extending the season. The day before (Nov 23 a few years back) everything looked great for a final sail to the bar on the other side of Lake Minnetonka, a beer, followed by a pull-out. But when we got to the boat at 10AM, she was surrounded by 2.5 inches of ice. Suddenly the plan changed to simply being able to get her out of the water. You could stand on the ice while breaking it with an ice pick. After about an hour, a shift in the wind helped break it up even more, but is still did a nasty number on the bottom paint.Jackdaw
Its not a pretty sight to see the wind blowing those shards up against that boat, but it looks like a great day for a cold sail. When I was younger maybe....
Thanks for the photo, there is nothing misery loves more than someone else's.
The latest storm blew all of the water out of the Chesapeake for a while. Every boat in the marina was hard aground. Not like it mattered.
I heard it was worse up at the top of the Bay. we have been sitting on our keel twice a day down here at the bottom as well but not so much as you. This huge wind driven variation is quite new to me so I didn't figure it out the first tide and was checking and rechecking tables. It is a lesson well learned though as I am told it is even more prevalent in the sounds south of me and desperately important when choosing an anchorage not just for protection from windage but also deep enough to account for the loss of as much as five feet of water.
I'm not familiar with that phenomenon. How interesting. Is that a localized air pressure thing or is wind really fully accountable for that? I suppose that makes it an air pressure thing.The latest storm blew all of the water out of the Chesapeake for a while. Every boat in the marina was hard aground. Not like it mattered.
