This, That, and the Other

This, that, and the other [TTO] is devoted to miscellaneous information that may be helpful or interesting about either cruising in New England or classic yachting in general plus additional pictures of Cherokee and High Cotton.  Enjoy!

 

If you are a tide guy, here is the 2008 tide chart for Essex, CT. Personally, we just leave when we can but whatever http://140.90.121.76/cgi-bin/get_pred.cgi?year=2006&stn=2555+New+London&secstn=Connecticut+River,+Essex&thh=+1&thm=39&tlh=+1&tlm=38&hh=*1.16&hl=*1.15

 

However, the weather is important. This url is for Essex, CT and includes a 15 day forecast for what that is worth but . . . http://wwwa.accuweather.com/index-forecast.asp?partner=google&myadc=0&zipcode=06426&u=1

 

The New England Grand Banks Owners' Association [NEGBOA] is an excellent site for information about the yacht http://www.grandbanks.com/index.cfm

In fact, the Essex office of Boatwork's Yacht Sales is an outstanding brokerage for Grand Banks http://www.boatworksyachtsales.com/contact_directions.cfm?office=essex

 

Similarly, Eastland Yachts in Essex, CT, is a superb broker for Nonsuch http://www.eastlandyachts.com/  Also, the website for the International Nonsuch Association provides http://www.nonsuch.org/

 

Cove Landing Marine, adjacent to the Hamburg Cove Yacht Club in Lyme, CT, is usually the winter home for Cherokee.  Cove Landing Marine is a full service boatyard specializing in every phase of restoration and overhaul of fine yachts and wooden boats.  Moreover, a beautiful club house has been restored and is a watering hole for cruisers and locals most evenings http://www.covelanding.com/page3.htm

 

A picture enjoyed by CYC below shows Cherokee and High Cotton cruising together in Coecles Harbor, New York in August 2005.  Also, the picture vividly demonstrates the surprisingly significant amount of space available in the Nonsuch 30 vs. the Grand Banks 32 although Cherokee has a main salon and head forward and down.  In other words, a catboat has a lot of room.
