Re: Huge price drop on Standard Horizon HX851

I also have a SH handheld with similar control functions. It's primarily used as a backup radio so the cumbersome operation to access all it's features really doesn't come into play. No problem...

Re: Looking for a Catalina 320, 34 mark ii or 309

Sorry to revive an old thread but I find myself in a similar predicament. For various reasons, I've decided that a Catalina would be the right boat. There's a pretty clean 309 recently listed in my...

Re: Greenport Summer Slip Marina Recommendations
