Re: Lightnings vs Scots vs Snark vs Sunfish

I'd be MORE than happy to help out, but unfortunately I'm still on the west coast of Florida, won't make to the east coast till late January. Sigh. Wrong place at the right time again.

You'll need to take the mast down to get from Lake Michigan to the Illinois, there's a 19' fixed bridge you must pass under. Thereafter you can carry 52'(I think) to the Gulf. And yes, taking the...

I've always heard that it was shrimp feeding on growth on the hull. Heard it a lot in Florida, the Bahamas and the southern east coast, not so much further north and not in fresh water.
