Re: Sailboat ready to cruise?

Haha, Mike, I think (and I'm going to be very embarassed right now if I'm wrong) that jimgo was talking about himself! We're forum buds! (even though we've only been posting for a week)

Re: Sailboat ready to cruise?

In fact, I'll just repost somebody's thoughts I saw on another thread about simplifying your boat systems. I think I'm gonna be more like this guy when we finally get the boat and prepare to take...

Just like the wide variety of sailboats I've been seeing, there is an equally vast array of posters in this forum and I appreciate all of your thoughts. Many of the responses we've been getting have...

Re: Boat Size

Some good ideas, but like I said...not a deal breaker. You made the point that a second head could serve as a storage locker and just have a space cleared out when needed, and I think this makes a...

Re: Boat Size
