Just to follow up about moving to San Diego...  I moved out here at the start of the year. My boat sat in Maryland and patiently waited for me to get finances and details in order for the move.  On Monday, Winston Trucking (Mark Frazier) loaded her on to his truck and is currently en route to San Diego (Shelter Island Boat Yard).  I will have them paint the bottom and place the mast. I will do the rest of the rigging. Then it's over to California yacht marina in Chula Vista.  I'm really looking forward to getting on the water again. Perhaps I'll see some of you San Diegans around the Bay.

I took the old window to glass shop and asked to duplicate.

Lots of great ideas.  Thank you.  As for Gorilla tape, I am currently using it to hold plastic over my fixed port during repair.  Strong stuff!!

I have never removed a keel stepped mast, so,excuse my ignorance. After the mast is removed, how do you seal the deck hole? Need more than a tarp if the boat gets moved across the country.

Thanks Kevin. I've tried several times to contact fiddlers cove but no reply. Any idea what kind of wait list they have?

I'll miss Solomons.

It's looking more likely that I'll move the boat. Probably late fall. Harbor island looks good, but need to check availability. It's the chicken and egg thing. Marinas want a date. Trucks need a destination.
BTW, do I need to strip off my ablative copper paint before I can go in California water?

I'm still going back and forth on selling or transport. Market is pretty dry for buyers around here. Same 5 boats have been sitting all summer. Does anyone have a recommendation for a boatyard in San Diego to transport to? Doesn't have to have a slip, as I can move to home berth after.

Don't want to dismiss the obvious.  Is your prop clean? It doesn't take much fouling to significantly reduce the rpm's.

Thanks for the considerations.  Right now it is looking less and less likely that my boat will follow me to the west coast.  Quite cost prohibitive.

Mike - When my salon hatch was leaking, I looked for a new gasket. But I decided to go ahead and re-bed the hatch.  It was actually really straight forward and only took an hour or so.  Use Butyl tape. No more leaks.  Never needed a new gasket.

Thanks for the chart!  That helps a lot.  Had no idea it was so shallow down there.

Chula Vista is nice, lower fees but a long narrow haul to the bridge and SD Bay proper and the ocean.

this was the comment I was referring to when I asked about sailing outside the marina.

I definitely like the costs of Chula Vista better.  So how far down is it?  Can I sail outside of the marina or do I have to motor an hour up to the bay?

Thanks for the replies.  I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for since the sailing will be so much different than the Chesapeake Bay.  We're not even sure if we are moving, but I wanted to get an idea of what I'm in for.
