Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Wow, what a huge culture change! What kind of restaurant? Family and I are thinking of a long road trip next summer, including GA. If we do it, it would be fun to stop in for lunch/dinner.

Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

That's so true. It doesn't really matter how much money (realistically speaking) you have when something breaks on the boat and you're in the top end of the Marshall Islands - there ain't nobody...

Re: New Father...Advice needed on sailing with kids

Christian, I hope the move is all for the best. I was looking forward to your restaurant meal, but Georgia is even closer. I might make it there in three or four years instead of the five or six for...

Re: Sailing Schools - certificated coures or 'a la carte'???

I think that with your experience you will have no problem finding a charter.

Re: If you live in Hawaii.....GET YOUR BOAT OUT OF THE WATER ASAP!!

Prudent seamanship would dictate, IMO, that one remove the roller furling jib from the foil (which is why we should have a storm jib or staysail aboard) and the main sail from the boom (and possibly...

Re: Looking for 36-40', plus sized cockpit
