I keep meaning to take the camera down to the marina, but here is a shot John took;



Capt. Smollet took this pic when he was out looking at his Alberg 30. The NE breeze brings some chop into the slip, it is pretty calm for most wind conditions.

Rose and I will be updating this page with our travel progress.  We have phad 'boat cards' printed up that have a link to this thread.   ;D

Here she is out Sailing on the New River;


OBTW, You can get free cards (shipping only)here.

  If anyone who we have given the cards to is poking around the site trying to find the link.... you can bookmark this thread.   ;)

Is that just a guess or is it based on inside information?  :D

Congrats!!!    :)

  We 'retire' on the 10th, and plan to cut the lines on the morning of the 11th.


Wow.  I was commenting tongue in cheek when I posted a couple of weeks ago that I bet you were casting off on the 11th.  Good on ya, mate.


See ya next Friday.   ;)

Still have not gotten the pictures of setting the boat up taken, been kinda busy.... crazy as i approach my retirement.

This is Gottchalks Marina, home for the last 5 years.  Home of the Ragged Point Yacht Club.  I am leaving as their commodore, these people are my friends.


Here are a couple of her last day in the slip.





  Today I retire from the Military, and tomorrow we sail.

Blessings to all, and thanks for the support.

  Rose and I will post updates soon.

Congrats and fair winds to you, Rose and Faith.  I think you'll really like the Engel 27, that's the same unit I have.  Just be aware that at anything about 1.5/2 it starts to freeze stuff.  :D

I'd love to see the photos of the pin rails, since I'm thinking of doing something similar, but haven't seen anything to inspire me. :D
