Hello and welcome to this thread!

I'd like to start a discussion to find Silverton owners who spend time on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. This could be a great way to find out who's who in the area. Post your boat name, model, homeport and favorite cruising areas. Names are optional but could be helpful in the event we find ourselves tied up nearby or anchored in the same cove. 

  1. "Winter Dream"- 1984 34C - Havre de Grace, Md. We cruise the upper Bay and frequent "The Flats" east of HdG and "Sand Island" along the HdG channel near Fishing Battery Light. We also cruise the Susquehanna, Northeast, Elk and Sassafras Rivers. Rob/Diane Burford

We have cruised the Chesapeake Bay off and on  for about 25 years. When we weren't in the Chesapeake we were cruising. We have been as far North as Martha's Vineyard and as far south as Key West and been on both coasts of Florida.

But for now, we're in dry storage hanging out at the Top Of The Bay in the C & D Canal, which is only 10 minutes from home. Maybe next year we'll get the boat out and cruise the Chesapeake again.

42 Convertible with 450 Cummins diesels, berthed in Selby Bay, South River.

We've cruised the Chesapeake since around '94, starting back then on our first Silverton: a Mainship III.

Just purchased a 2002, 330 Silverton Sportbridge, and keep it at Crescent YC, Norman Creek off Middle River. Stayed in Chesapeake City 2 weeks ago. Looking forward to a lot of Mid-Bay exploration. 

Being new on the Bay, I have  a power question for the more experienced Bay travelers about 50A power plugs. In looking at the Marinco catelog, there are two 50A to twin 30A y-converters. One configuration gives you 50A to twin 125V/250V 30A and the other configuration gives you 50A to twin 125V 30A. I presently have two 50 foot 30A 125V cables and have been told to get a triple 30A cheater y for when rafting 3 deep at the YC openings and events. So my question is which 50A to twin 30A y-adapter should I buy if I am only buying 1 ...for now... or does every transient marina slip always have twin 30As available when you stop for the night or a weekend??

Our 50-amp service is 250v.  If your boat is 50-amp, I'd bet it's also configured for 250v... although I'd have thought your 330 would normally be configured for twin 30s.  Perhaps I've mis-read your post?

You could check that in your boat documentation... or call Silverton to confirm.  Also, lots of experience and info available in the on-line Silverton Owner's Club Forum, here: http://www.silvertonboat.com/vbulletin/forum.php.  One of the 330 owners is bound to know.

Marinco makes a "Smart Y" that combines two 30-amp supplies into one 50-amp supply, as long as the two 30-amp supplies are out of phase with each other and as long as the total service will reach 208v (assuming you need 250v supply).  Other companies (Charles, etc.) make similar products.  Most, but not all, marinas will have two 30s available, and most of those will be suitable for a "Smart Y" connecter.  If your boat uses 50-amp service, you'll want something like this eventually.

The various companies also make splitters that will change 50-amp shore service into twin 30-amp supplies... but (if your 330 uses twin 30s) it's rare that a marina would only have 50-amp available.  And in cases where the shore power service at specific slips is configured for 50-amp, usually those are big slips and marinas will hold those for larger boats to the extent they can do that.  If your boat is configured for 30-amp shore power, I wouldn't bother with one of these.

Some additional commentary:  Generally when we think of rafting up, that's out on the water somewhere with one boat at anchor and additional boats tied alongside.  We do that often, with AC power provided (occasionally) by the on-board generator.  No cables required.

If you mean rafting against a boat tied to the dock at your YC, I guess that'd be something to experience first before deciding whether you need extra cables or converters/splitters, etc.  We've only rafted this way for a very termporary tie-up to deal with uncommon circumstances.

That said, and if your 330 uses twin 30-amp shore power, perhaps what they're saying is they service several boats from 50-amp power points, and each 50-amp supply is split into twin 30s for each boat.  In that case, you'd likely be looking for a 50-amp 125/250v splitter to twin 30-amp connecters.  I think I'd be inclined to look at the proposed set-up in person first, before buying anything.

And in fact, I'd be even more inclined to just not raft up like that for any length of time   

-Chris

I am almost 100 percent positive that your 330 has two 125V, 30A inlets. If this is true. In order to plug into a 50A dock outlet, you will need a 240V, 50A to two 125V, 30A adapter. Once you have the adapter you have two choices. You can buy a 240V, 50A power cord and install the adapter at the boat end or install the adapter at the dock and run your two 125V, 30A cables to the boat. The 50A cord is expensive. It's only advantage is that you only have to run a single cable to the boat. However, this one cable is one large, heavy pain in the butt. I suggest that you install the adapter at the dock and run the two smaller cables to the boat.

Most marinas will put you in a slip with 50A service if you ask. We travel a lot and I don't remember a time when we were refused 50A service.

The people in the club are alive and well and very active. You missed a great party on the Chesapeake  last year and there will be another one this year.

 The non-members are the silverton folks  who are inactive because they are unorganized. Find the organized group  on the web via the Google search engine. Look up Silverton club or silverton owners.  Or check us out at the silverton address on my signature.

 By the way, we have 50% discount memberships to BoatUS!

Moving the boat (34 ACMY) to the Sassafras River at Georgetown Yacht Basin for the Month of May.  After that, we'll see what other ports to explore as the summer wears on . . .

I used to keep my boat in Georgetown Yacht Basin before I moved it to Florida. The young people they hired to work on the docks were outstanding. When I took the boat out, most of the time, I would be by myself. When I came back, all I had to do was call them on the radio or on my cellphone and they would be at my slip to take the lines.

 We have a lot of Silverton Owners Club  members on the Sassafras at Skipjack, Sassafras Harbor, Duffy Creek as well as Georgetown Yacht Basin. A lot of the people at those marinas never venture more than a mile or two from the marinas and travel between the marinas on their dingy.

Through the club, is a great way to meet these other Silverton owners in the Sassafras marinas.

The annual club party will most likely be down around bay bridge.

We make several trips a year, Annapolis, St. Michaels, and are going to Cape May this summer.  We do a lot of weekends at Still Pond.
