Re: Radio calls ... What not to call your boat?

About a year ago I saw a photo of a powerboat named "My Dixie Wrecked". Gave me a chuckle at first - later it seemed childish. Probably it violates Coast Guard rules.

Re: Do all Beneteaus have iron keels?

Our 1998 Beneteau Oceanis 352 has a lead keel. I don't know about later models.

Re: Closing seacocks

We have 8 below the waterline in our 35' Bene & always close all of them when leaving the boat for a day or more. Two cockpit drains exit the transom about 12" above waterline, so no need to bother...

LED Nav Light

On our 1998 Bene 352 we replaced the bi-color bow light bulb (in an Aqua Signal 41 fixture) with a Dr. LED bi-color LED "bulb". You need to use a bi-color LED "bulb" not a clear one, even though the...

Jenneau & Beneteau 360

I saw this demonstrated at the Annapolis Boat Show and it was most impressive. However, there was no wind to oppose the boat movements, so you could'nt really get a sense of how it would work in the...

We sail out of the Sailing Emporium also and have a 5' draft. I wouldn't want much more than that to sail over the Swan Creek Bar using the Brewerton Range light course. If you are bound for...
