I think that your Caravelle would really benefit from a carbon mast. With or without, she's a beautiful boat. One of my favourites.

We looked for you downeast but saw no B40 with a double spreader carbon rig and a maple leaf. If you're in the Chesapeake now, watch out for Danny. We had a great time downeast and it was all over way too quickly. I know how I'm going to spend my summers after I retire.

Peter,

That's as far east as we got before we had to head west again. We were there for three days hanging around the island and doing ordinary maintenance. Wish we were there now. Have fun.
