Re: Gastonguay Family That Left US In Sailboat Over Religious Freedom Was Lost ... -

What a weird story. These people were totally clueless and lucky that somebody came along to save them.

Re: Tayanas - original drawings


Please don't throw them out. I'm not a Tayana owner but if you can't find another taker let me know and I'll arrange for shipment.

You should contact the Tayana Owners Group, I suspect...

Re: Solar powered cooling

I'm not familiar with Zeolites and their properties. It's an intriguing idea, how large would these containers need to be?

Re: Looking for a Sailing teacher

Check for sailing schools in your area. They would be happy to provide you with individualized training. I'm sure you'll be able to negotiate a rate that is fair for you and the trainer.

Re: Dinghy engine thief caught!! Fake CraigsList Ad
