Re: Gremlins in the chain locker

Re: Pedro tube

You're really wondering why it wasn't named 'McMillan tube' or 'Miller's tube' rather than 'Pedro tube' sounds like racial tones to it?:p

Re: Is a 32' Sailboat Over-sized for a Beginner?

Buy the 32 footer, crack the bow and come back here so everyone can tell you how expensive the repair will be (more than it's worth).... :D

Re: Cracked bow (pic), would you buy?

It's out of the water... have a knowledgeable person look at the damage, repair it and sail it away.
