For an e-mail copy, drop me note ( with your e-mail address...always confidential, no spam, no a 4 page list that is too long for this board. Cheers, Richard.

sailingdog Ummm. Are you guys aware that Viceroy, the guy with the list, hasn't been active on Sailnet since 07-18-2003, over three years ago?

You are probably never going to get any response from him, as he is probably no longer on sailnet...

Also, posting your e-mail address in an unobscufated form is a good way to get a lot more spam than you already do. Never, ever type on a public forum. Spammers use webcrawlers to harvest e-mail addresses and can easily pick this up. SailorJim is the only one who seems to have any commonsense whatsoever about this issue.

List for cruising needs

Hi Viceroy,
Please email me your list. I envy what you are doing and will some day plan my first ocean trip. My sailing waters are the Great Lakes on a Catalina 34 for now. Getting my skills up to a level where I can do ocean cruising.
Thanks a lot for your list.
