You should probably lay off a little further from shore, if you’re hitting trees.

I have been looking in from time to time. I will look in more often now that the windy rainy season is here.

I hit a tree once with my rudder hard enough to knock my autopilot offline. No damage to the rudder, but usually for me they hit somewhere forward on the hull first, but this one was at 3am in January so I didnt see it coming at all. They are an occupational hazard around here near rivers during rainy season.

I really hope they get the necessary resources to make the company and this bulletin board a viable entity but they need to be more selective with process of who they let make posts on this forum!

Online retailer''s remaining assets sold in bankruptcy court

The Post and Courier - Charleston, S.C.

The sail-making unit of the business, AirForce Sails, was bought for $26,000 by Cheryl Boyle, who ran MarineNet with her husband, [Sam Boyle], until late 2004, and Samuel Levin, an area real estate agent who is listed as both a creditor and a shareholder in the MarineNet bankruptcy.

Randy Draftz, a former MarineNet employee, bought the rest of the company''s retail inventory for $29,350. Draftz, who handled MarineNet''s online catalog for about six years, incorporated his own company in December. He plans to sell the inventory with other sailing gear on his new Web site,

[Kevin Campbell] said his office will dig deeper into the company''s history in coming months, looking for signs of possible embezzlement or large chunks of cash going to nonoperational items. The venture capitalists who bankrolled MarineNet have hired a company to do similar research. Campbell said his office would likely question the Boyles in coming months.

Mary, do you offer a website with info on sailing/cruising in Guam? If not, would you be open to an email about it? I ask because my son may be stationed there, in which case I''d like to consider including it in a Pacific run. Many thanks...
