Re: Bombay Clipper 31 for East Coast & Bahamas?

Far Cry, Do you have any pictures of those rigging changes? I am sure mine is still factory and would love to see just what and where it was changed.

Re: Am I Nuts?.....And if so, what do I do now?

I smile and say maybe if I can get away later. I hardly ever show. But if someone needs help I volunteer. Now I am liked on the dock but humorously known as a loner, lol. It takes time though.
