Thanks- I love the boat and it is in fantastic shape, thus the urgency to get the deck sealed and keep the gear in good shape. I have a basic sailing book, just haven't had the time to crack it open.
there is a sailing school located in our marina and I am scheduling a class after my December/January schedule lightens up. Wed of this week through January 31 are going to be crazy busy so I want to get everything I can off the boat this week.
Thanks again for the replies. I would ask folks on the dock, but it was 32 degrees there on Saturday and I saw one other person.
