Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice
there is one where I live..never gets out..the sea's allways rough on it...either too much wind or too much sea..sails 3 times a year, in the summer... It digs under the waves, and almost capsized once.

the guy's seling it..he hates it..and we're talking about a guy that sailed Tronados for 20 years, not a sailnet first time Joe...

He says its like riding a motorcycle with a side car...never turns right to the side of the side car...

No one wants to buy it...sad but true

Not to heap it on, but I think I've previously mentioned here that a number of years ago we rendered assistance to an F-27 that had pitch-poled on Chesapeake Bay during an overnight race. It was blowing pretty good that night, they were running before a strong norther and buried a bow. No injuries, everyone taken off safely by the Coast Guard.

Fun looking boats, but it's not only on the open ocean that you have to be cautious...

Fedesail is on a distinguished road
Hi,

I was walking around Bordeira Beach (Carrapateira, Portugal) at low tide last week, when I saw a piece of a boat hull with part of its name "... Flyer" and the legend "Edgartown" printed on it.

There was something eerie about it so after coming back home I googled a bit to found out that a Brian Mann of Edgartown owned a boat with the name "High Flyer", and then I came across this post and also across (mvgazette.com/article.php?25841) where -apparently- they describe the whole story.

Unfortunately I´m quite broke and I´m not looking forward to subscribe to the Vineyard Gazzette just to read this one (as a resident in Spain I don´t find it useful enough...), but I'll appreciate if someone can tell me more about it.

Best regards,
