Switch from C310 listserve to forum
Well, hopefully everyone will migrate over to this forum. Would like to hear if anyone else has another preferred system for communicating among us C310 owners. I think the C310 association site might have a system, but SailNet has been a good platform generally other than the wierd lyris error messages.
In other news, my boat partners and I just got back from our annual trip from San Francisco to Santa Cruz--about 70 miles each way on the Pacific. Heading south, we got the boat up to 11.5 knots surfing on a swell under single reefed main and full 110 jib. Heading north was a little less comfortable, with the fabled slog against unusually steep and tightly packed 6'-12' seas. We were drenched and ended up with some water along the interior sides of the saloon and a surprising amount of water (more than 7 gallons) in the port cockpit locker that set off one of our inflatable PFDs, popping it. FYI, after speaking with Sospender customer service about that, they advise everyone to disable the autoinflate function when the PFDs are stored in a locker, as they will not repair a burst bladder.
Hope the rest of you are all having a fine summer of sailing!
