You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sorry we missed every one Friday evening but couldn't leave DC until 7 PM.
We drove down to the show Saturday as the winds were pretty brisk early in the day.

Managed to get a great deal on a Gerhaur Radar Pole with an antennae loop and with removable engine lift for $840 and they pay half the freight. We have purchased davits from them before and are very happy with their quality.

We also bought new Gill foul weather gear for a great price and I got a pair of Harken shoes.

Decided on the Harken IV #1 furler and will buy from Defender this week. anyone have one of these? Comments? BTW Defender has great sales on a lot of gear on line till next Sunday

Saturday evening we motored from Rock Creek to Bodkin and anchored in Jubb cove to a cacophony of duck quacks.

Today was a great sailing day in the Patapsco off of Rock Creek. Every day now is a bonus day.

Dave

I didn't buy anything at the show except admission and Painkillers (they named them after me). However, I drank more than my admission's worth of free Hendrick's gin aboard the Catherine Marie, so I still came out ahead. *hiccup*

A Unit 1? Sure you don't need a Unit 2? If you didn't get my PM, check with Ken tomorrow before you buy, I bet he can bet it plus no shipping. I think the install was about $300.00

Sorry we missed the gathering. We ended up going to a Manta get together (yes, we have a Passport, but we have friends with Mantas), and then s'mores with friends we met in the Bahamas. It's been a great boatshow thus far! Chef - if the furler still comes with the black control line, replace the line immediately. Don't even bother trying it. It's horrible. Great furler, terrible line. You can go up one size too.

Mainesail has a MKIV Unit 1 on his CS36 and is very happy with it. I was convinced that I was going with a Unit 1, but seeing them side by side really lead me to believe the Unit 1 might be undersized for a 36 foot boat. Given the huge price increase from the Unit 1 to Unit 2, I'm rethinking how I want to proceed. I'm also giving the Furlex a second look. The Furlex includes everything you need including a new forestay and the furling line blocks both of which you have to add to the cost of the Harken units.

T37, if you have any ideas I'd like to hear them also.

All I can say is with a 150% Genny I cant imagine anything smaller than the Unit 2 for my boat.

And as Labtt said, the line really blows. In fact, I sent off a long email to Harken about the crappy line and got a very good response, but I don't think they have changed the OEM line?

Cheers,
Shawn

I have a unit 1 - works great for the 140 on my caliber 33. yeah, the line could be better. at the price they charge there is no reason not to put a better line on and charge the extra $50 (or whatever) it would take to upgrade it.
