Scotty,

FYI: We've got a beater dingy chained up on the shore and it rules. Zero dollars, no waiting, and its a great workout - especially when I have...

Re: main sail fell, halyard at top of mast....

Re: Lindenhurst LI to Setauket Harbor LI

Sounds like a great trip, one that I'd like to do in reverse with my wife and kids this summer.

We just bought a new-to-us C&C 29 which will be on our mooring in Setauket Harbor in...

Re: SailBoats for Sale buy OWNER........

Ha! I agree. The site is put together so poorly that I almost like it more because of its suckiness. Reminds me of Yahoo in the old days. And I've been building web sites and running servers for...

Re: VOR down to two boats

Though they've clearly got to strengthen these boats some so there's not so many DNF's, watching this VOR is anything but boring. Its totally riveting. The video of the boats blasting through the...
