Example text

But we did it fright-free even though that system had turned into a fullblown gale by the time we got between the Chesapeake capes. Now, John has a scar that he thinks makes him look debonair, and I was reminded that a 24-hour forecast is just that—a prediction, not a statement of fact. Here are a few other lessons I’d forgotten—and relearned that day: • • The sea doesn’t give a hoot about your schedule. Deteriorating conditions are evident a lot later when you’re running with the weather than if you’re running upwind or crosswind.

In some cases, the shaft/transmission coupling can be disconnected, which will allow the shaft to freewheel, but will protect the transmission from damage. Examine the situation carefully, however, before you take this route. On some older installations, there is a possibility that by detaching the shaft at the transmission coupling, the shaft can slide out through the stuffing box. If this possibility exists, disconnecting the shaft should not be attempted. AVOIDING COLLISIONS When I ran excursion and sightseeing cruises on New Jersey’s Barnegat Bay, it was on holiday weekends that I became a fervent believer in boater education—especially Fourth of July weekends.

Once you get a line on the dock, the boat will come in. If tossing the line ashore isn’t practical, try securing one end of a long line to the midships cleat. As you nose in, have your crew walk the line forward and hang a loop of the line over a bollard or dockside cleat, keeping the bitter end in their hands. Then back the boat off and work it until it’s parallel to the dock. ) Whichever way you got the end of the line ashore, after the boat is lined up where you want it, tell the crew to take in the slack and pull the line tight under one horn of the midships cleat.
