S/S andersons are nice. That's true about winches wearing out; i've never seen it either. Then again i don't have umpteen years either.
I almost got me a C34...... then i happened onto the fire sale that i have now; my bene 400. Newlyweds, she didn't like sailing and wanted a new house. Something had to give. I told my BROTHER at his bachelor party i'd be getting that baby at half price....I like it a lot. "My forever boat" The admiral loves it.
May 15th in maine to start? I had no idea. I drop in april 15-20 like clock work. Pull out aound Oct 15, wish it was later.
Good luck with the winches
Thanks. Both of the marinas I've been at in Portland use May 15 so I assume it's uniform there. When I moved here I checked around and I think the places I checked were also May 15. Even in Maine, I would be out in April if I could.
