Wink Boat show bliss

Sort of went nuts after the Vancouver Boat Show and acquired some necessities for more single handed sailing. You have to understand that my wife simply LOVES to go sailing as long as there is no wind! So now I have an autopilot so I can trim the sails the way I like it, lazyjacks for a quicker wrap and a diesel heater for shoulder season sailing/fishing and those evenings at the marina when I'm in the doghouse. And that's where I fully expect to be spending more time.

Good for you!.. I couldn't find anyone selling what I was after at the show.

Re: Boat show bliss

I love local auctions and marine discount stores. Show up with $500 and leave with $1500 worth of goodies. Money talks.
