Re: New sailor going from Key West to Cancun: HELP!

Watch out for those huge 30 knot cruise liners and the equally huge oil transports which traverse this area very often. Of course you'll have the right of way if you're sailing.

Re: Refinishing loop rails

Nice pics and posts, Chris. What you did was "sand" not "strip" but a small distinction. Using 80 grit on your expensive teak trim will leave you with nothing but a pile of dust after a few sandings....
