I agree foibles can be fun, but with a Jag, when you are talking Lucas electrics, you are past my threshold for patience. Old Bosch, yes but Lucas, no.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Bob's MG example is the exact same sentiment I expressed earlier about preferring to own a 60's convertible to one made today. Its not only about performance, it can simply be no more complicated...

Re: Looking for a day sailer

I'd suggest something in the 17 to 19 foot range with a cockpit to hold four and some towels, cooler, etc.

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

Jeff:

That was very instructive, thank you. Though clearly, your boat-sense resides mostly in the left side of your brain. For some, boat-ownership is a right-brain function, more emotional than...

Re: Don't buy a windlass from these people

I find some of these replies way off base. The buyer was very poorly treated by an uncaring vendor... and he's being portrayed as being at fault. He is the victim here.
