I suppose thats why even though I live on the water on the south shore, I keep my sailboat boat in pt. wash. on the sound.
Just a matter of getting accustomed, but the sound is some beautiful sailing. My biggest problem with the south shore is that unless your in the ocean, its always so shallow, and I hate having to meander around trying to stay in the channel.

What a great trip you had!

Lot's of news here, the boat was in a big-time movie shoot, we've been surfing through the winter, I've been re-doing the 12v compressors (cold beer at last!), we got a bigger solar panel.

You probably heard about Dave building a huge, Coast Guard certified cat. Look him up and he'll show you his progress.

Glad to hear that Darius is still doing his thing. Our ETA is mid/late June. Your post has me eagerly awaiting that day. Can't wait!

Regards,
Brad

P.S. Did you get a solar panel yet? (Can't remember if you were getting your initial one or a bigger one.)
Brad, great news about the movie ! That's awesome. I had a small 10W panel last summer that I'll be using again until I can upgrade. I don't know anything about Dave and his boat. What's that all about ? Looking forward to your arrival.

Check out Dave's website: Sailing Montauk presents Mon Tiki: Day Trips and Sunset Cruises on Montauk's Charter Catamaran

His Catalina 38 got hit by lightning last summer. The whole inside was charred. Boat was totaled.

His new cat will be able to take 30 passengers. He's focusing on day sails, events, and sunset cruises.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Montauk: What's the point ?

Struck by lighting ! That's definitely one of those "back-of-my-mind" fears. I've considered a homemade system for grounding my boat, but I've also read opinions that doing so can make you more prone to strikes. It's a nerve racking topic for me, I must say. Can't wait to see that boat, sounds great. I wish he had some pictures up on the website, unless I overlooked them I didn't see any.
