Re: Free mooring in FL

Re: Free mooring in FL

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

I noticed that too. The boat always had a lean to port, but that looks pretty extreme. I haven't spoken to the new owner to ask, but it may be the camera angle. The standing rigging is brand new,...

Re: Is she bluewater? Interesting story to help with these questions.

I think it was more the poor preparation on a poorly maintained boat that resulted in this situation. The boat was recovered some time later still afloat (as is usually the case). You can get into...

Re: CNG availability in VA

Glad it worked out for you. It's obvious they don't deal with small time orders very often, but now that you've got the channel established, it should be pretty easy for you in thhe future.
