Re: Squatters at dock!?

No real answer other than proceed VERY carefully. I'd call local PD and FWC, inform them of the situation, and ask how to proceed.

Sounds like someone is trying to get rid of a boat to me.

Re: Buying a live aboard sailboat

Re: Salvage claim in Louisiana against an abandoned sailboat

Seems a little high for a tow to me, especially for company equipped to remove wellheads. I wouldn't think they made a special trip or burned much extra diesel.

Re: The Last Voyage of the 85 year-old Vollmer Twins

Re: New Interior Remodel Idea on my Venture 21

Having owned a Venture 21 myself, I'd clean and repaint the interior and leave it at that. I believe you're inviting mold and rot issues trying to put in interior paneling. Mine had lifelines and a...

Re: Hello from Florida ! My first sailboat !

A good way to learn is to find a local yacht club that has racing. Bradenton Yacht Club (BYC) is where I was introduced to sailing, I don't know about now, but they used to have Thursday night races...

Re: radar gun

This answer is both funny and correct.

It's funny what people get in their head sometimes and just will not listen to someone who knows the correct answer.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Eh, not a terrible movie, all things considered. A one watcher, for sure. I might put it on again as background while I'm doing something else.

Re: R.I.P. Russell Johnson, The Professor.

Around 6th grade or so, I'd watch Gilligan's Island re-runs every afternoon after school. One of our cable channels just started showing them again, they seem to pop up every ten years or so.

Re: Sailing in the Desert

Enjoy! I owned a V21 (with some friends) for about four years, we had a blast. You may want to go ahead and replace the keel cable if you don't know when it was last replaced.

Re: Bumfuzzles swallow the Anchor

I enjoy their blog. Looks like they have done all they want on a boat and have decided to move on to a different phase of life. Good for them.

Odd feature on my old Venture 21

Back in the mists of time, (2002-2006 or so) I owned a MacGregor Venture 21 with three other people. I don't recall the year model of the boat, it was older, old enough that it just had Venture...
