Re: Trouble in Rockland, ME

Sounds to me Rockland is in need of new management. Their schools, community center and library are also taking hits.

Re: Airhead in PSC 37?

Re: straighten furling foil

The make of the furler would be helpful. If that is a CDI flexfurl then it will most likely depend on the age of the furler as to whether it will straighten up or not since they become brittle over...
