As a sailmaker and retired hard core racer I agree with this post 100%. A passage is about the trip not exactly the destination. A light air day (or week) is a good opportunity to think about why you...

Re: Cost to Replace Chainplates? Should I Walk Away?

Uh, CA sales tax is 8%. You buy in CA and you are legally bound to simply cut that check for 8% of book value of your new boat and drop it in the mail to CA BOE. Forget to do it? They'll have you...

Re: What Boat And Why

Yeah, you are spot on with the Norstar's. Kelly Peterson 44 -awesome although I dismissed it from my shortlist as it's getting long in the tooth.

I'm closing on a Nordic 44 next week.
