  1. Time for a Shakedown!

    Thursday was our day, time to go for shakedown cruise, where are we going? Hadn’t quite figured that out yet... We left the dock by noon on Thursday and headed out into the Chesapeake bay to test out some sails before retiring for night in Galesville, just South of White Marsh Creek (where Holiday Hill Marina is) over on the West River. We toured the bay looking for a good anchorage and ran across another C&C 27 at anchor near a pier-side bar, Thursday’s, with plenty of empty ...

  2. Fiddlers and Zoo Animals


    St. Patty’s day and some time with Jennifer’s family - no boats this weekend.

  5. Day 2 of Boat Shopping...


    For day 2 of boat shopping we planned an easy day with only 3 boats on the list and all of them in Annapolis, just a short drive away from where we were staying. We slept in and relaxed until the morning traffic was over and then drove around the beltway to our first stop to look a Hunter 31 - yet this one is a more modern hunter and might be more boat than we need. The broker had her listed at $9500 with ...
