Jus joking xort - Endeavour is a great boat, may sail like a sow's ear, but it IS a beauty. FYI, I posted that before hearing of your new acquisition - so no correlation . . . really.
Yea right, keep shoveling!
As for piggish; during sea trial, we hit 6+k in 16k wind on a broad reach without trimming sails. Not bad for a 25,000lb cruiser, I'd say.

Ed,
This is the boat I was referring to that had SS ports installed - it was nicely done and greatly improves the boat over the orig. plastic framed ports. It's in charter service now and apparently doing a brisk business.



Sorry if I hit a raw nerve - realize now my joking was done in poor taste. I really do like your boat.

Just giving you some 5hit

Mine has aluminum ports. Most are in good shape but a few need a tune up.

Thanks again.
This photo of my daughter and nephew was taken today with some fairly heavy cloud cover. It was taken hand held with NO flash inside the cabin.

Previously. I could not take hand held photos, inside, with the Beckson ports, without the assistance of a flash.....

I don't use them in anything over 15-18 and never would, it goes on the deck for those situations.

I mostly use them to store the dinghy, while on the mooring, to prevent growth. Our marina has launch service, and no dinghy dock, so the dinghy stays either tied off the stern or on the davits. I hate cleaning the bottom of the dinghy and hate painting dinghy bottoms even worse so the davits are an invaluable asset plus they hold my solar panel...
