Pine island is nice, but shallow. I guess the shallow part will not bother you. I have not used them but have used Olsens. I give Olsens a positive rec. They are right beside you if you are at a mooring ball at FMB. Worth a trip over to speak with Casey. I think it is Rick (or Terry, cannot remember now) that is really good with rigging. You can do some of your own bottom jobs there if you want to save a buck.

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.

Bob & Annies are first rate. They do alot of multi-hull work but seem to do it all. And Pine Island is a fantastic place to live if you are into boats, but don't tell anyone!

Cool, I've not sailed on a Cross design yet, but have seen quite a few of them. They look like pretty boats. BTW, I sail a Telstar 28' trimaran.

thanks for the info on bob and annies....and pine island...i understand randy wayne white lives there....i have enjoyed all his books and wondered how much of his fictional boating community is drawn from there...how do you like your telstar...is that a folding model?...i have considered looking into a folding tri so i can trailer it...but they seem to have very little interior space to spend much time on...

I do like the Telstar a lot. I've made a few major modifications to mine that aren't options from the factory yet. It is a folding model, but folds in a very different way from the Corsair/Farrier designs or the Quorning Dragonflies. Storage is a bit lacking on the boat, and is part of the reason behind at least one of the modifications I've made. If you have any questions, let me know.
