Re: Best sunglasses for sailing on bright days

Another vote for Maui Jim. I believe they also offer prescription lenses. Obviously, the correct sizing of the frame and good coverage of your field of visions is a must. A good hat also helps.

Re: Jon Eisberg's Passing today...

Saddened to hear the news. Never had the pleasure of knowing or meeting him in person, though through the online postings I felt like I did. Condolences to the family.

Fair winds,

Thank you for everyone's comments and suggestions.

Re: Sailing Toys! What should I put on my Christmas list?

All I want is a good sailing season with steady SE winds 10-15 kts, no hurricanes / storms, no heatwaves, in other words - perpetual sailing bliss. Yeah, I can live with that . . . :D

Re: Opinions needed on Marine Air (Dometic)

Re: Fall sailing! Brrr

Yes, definitely another beautiful weekend. Sailed up the Rappahannock river and then enjoyed "flying" downwind. Nice temps and the water is not too cold yet.

Re: Hypervent or Equivalent? - seeking condensation solution for under berths

I have been using this Froli Sleep Systems by Nickle Atlantic, LLC ( and condensation has never been an issue. More comfortable rest comes as an extra bonus.
