        I don't know where they were measuring winds, but I was running at hull speed w/ just a reefed main. I was clocking over 30 knots relative. At one point earlier, before I furled the jib, the deck went under and we shipped some water in the cockpit, all off Spectacle Island. Just the day to practice setting the spinnaker! All this in a P-30.

            Hi,
             
            Well  I am GUESSING that these wind measurements are at (snapshot) 1 point (1 second or 1 reading) at  each :50 min of each hr ... obviously missing (not recording the wind speed measurements) the other 59 (or 59mins x 60 seconds) of wind. 
             
            Bill W. was measuring a constant 29 mph (@3:00 PM ish) on his boat at the mooring in Winthrop that obviously is somewhat wind protected by Snake Isl and other land masses & objects.

              Although I guessed these reading might be a "snapshot" a second guess might be that these are average wind speeds over the previous hour and the highest wind gust over that same hour.

                We headed back from P-town yesterday. What a ride! Made about 6.5 kts. Fortunately we were on a beam reach all the way up to Minot's ledge. Then we turned up wind, while reefing the jib the furler broke. Had some fun wrestling the jib in a 20 kt breeze.

                Hi Dick, Station 44013, is what NOAA refers to as the Boston Buoy. Not to be confused with the B Buoy, it is labeled Bf and is the last of the traffic

                  Hi Dick,

                  Station 44013, is what NOAA refers to as the Boston Buoy.  Not to be confused with the "B" Buoy, it is labeled "Bf" and is the last of the traffic separation buoys around Cape Cod.  It is about 4 miles ESE of the "B" Buoy...

                      Hi,
                       
                      Well  I am GUESSING that these wind measurements are at (snapshot) 1 point (1 second or 1 reading) at  each :50 min of each hr ... obviously missing (not recording the wind speed measurements) the other 59 (or 59mins x 60 seconds) of wind. 
                       
                      Bill W. was measuring a constant 29 mph (@3:00 PM ish) on his boat at the mooring in Winthrop that obviously is somewhat wind protected by Snake Isl and other land masses & objects.

                        I was coming up from Plymouth yesterday in a Hunter 33. We recorded wind speeds of 20-30 knots with gusts up to 37 knots. We were on a broad reach much of the time and reached speeds of 7.7 knots with reefed main and jib. Spent much of the time at 6 knots under jib alone. Luckily the waves weren't that bad. On Friday we went to P-town from Boston and had 6 footers on our beam for the afternoon, so we had to zig-zag for a couple hours, keeping the waves on our quarter. These conditions really make you understand how important it is to have confidence in your boat. You don't want to be thinking, "boy, I hope my old, neglected rig stays upright" or "I pray my engine doesn't give out on me now." I've never heard so much Coast Guard radio traffic as I did on Sunday. I hope everyone out there got home without incident and no (or little) damage.

                          I was in the outer harbor sunday afternoon. Mostly under reefed main and reefed jib. On my Catalina 36, it was a pretty comfortable ride. At one point on a beam reach the GPS was reading 8.4. With about a 1 kt following current I was clocking aRound 7.3-7.5 which is about hull speed. We had less that 100% foretriangle and about 70% main. I saw a number of boats with full mains and no jib getting slammed pretty good in the inner harbor gusts. Ditto for some folks doing it with a full jib and no main.  I am a fan of balanced rigs when reefing. Lots of folks getting slammed around. A couple of capsizes on the VHF during the day.

                          It was a lot of fun, lots of wind and no seas. So going fast was easy. Unfortunately, I have to wind instrumentation, but I would guess from the whitecaps in the outer harbor that it was consistent 25 kt.

                          Hi Philip,  I was crewing on a 34' Pearson Sunday out of Beverly.  It got very gusty w/waves (guessing 2-4'  w/30+k gusts) there.  Heard it was howling in Boston too. Congrats on your boat!!  Terry

                            Phillip,
                            It was about 11:00am, a couple of miles east of Hardings ledge. I was beat after that and dropped the sails, motored the rest of the way into Winthrop. It was pretty slow going into that wind I should of kept the main up.

                            I'm finding it difficult to get replacement parts for a '92 Furlex Type B MKII furler. Anyone have a source ?? I'm working my way down the selden dealer listing.


                            Jim - where you coming into Boston harbor? What time were you coming
                            in? I saw a boat a few miles off shore that looked to have a loose jib
                            flapping about, maybe that was you?

                            kts. Fortunately we were on a beam reach all the way up to Minot's
                            ledge. Then we turned up wind, while reefing the jib the furler broke.
                            Had some fun wrestling the jib in a 20 kt breeze.
