Re: Boat sank at the dock

Two phone calls and two emails. Surely that is a typo. It must have been two phone calls and two emails every day since this happened.

Re: Your thoughts thru experience?

In my opinion the 9.9 merc is just about right for a Catalina 25.

Re: Oldest Around, Solo, Non-Stop

The way I see it is that these first attempts are primarily to show dramatically that something can be done so effort and funding will be attracted so that eventually it might make sense.

Re: Prices for everything

I just talked to a guy who was quoted 50k for a new engine on a 45' sailboat.
The actual bill came in significantly higher. Probably 10 to 20k of extras.
