Re: 1996 Catalina 28 Tall Rig Mast

I second (third, fourth???) the suggestion to follow-up with Catalina...I'm surprised that they have been less helpful. I have always had great support from Catalina. While I'm not sure how they...

All...thank you for the helpful suggestion...I plan to pass all of these suggestions to the marina. As I am over an hour from the boat, I won't be there until this weekend.

Re: Engine Instruments Fail to Read - Help!

I was wondering if it was a chafed/broken wire or something. As for temperature potentially contributing to this issue as well...do you mean the normal operating temperature of the engine, or that...

Re: Florida is at it again

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

Re: 1 rescued, 1 dead, 4 missing in Mobile Bay Regatta

While this was certainly a tragedy, I am quite surprised at the negative comments directed towards the boat that posted the youtube video. While I've only seen clips on the news, I've been able to...

Re: Florida is at it again

If I'm not mistaken, a companion bill in the house (presumably the one already in existence) would need to be merged with the Senate bill to form one bill...and that one bill would then be voted on...

Re: Obama Executive Order Declaring Sailingboats Tax-free

I fell for it...not sure which is worse, the fact that I forgot it was 4/1 or that this seemed so believable from the current administration...either way, I had a chuckle once I realized today's...

Re: Best of these Florida cities for sailing

While St. Pete is the only location of the three you've mentioned that I've sailed in, as a Florida resident my vote would be for St. Pete/Sarasota on the west coast of FL. From St. Pete you can get...

Re: Effective remedies for the no-see-ems

We have no-see-ums up here in the FL panhandle as well. I generally use OFF I believe (orange/white bottle)...but a lot of the folks where we keep our boat swear by using Avon Skin So Soft.

Re: small boat BVI
