Re: This mystery has me beat.

Re: Storm Shutters - Storm Boards

HOLY CARP!! The scene played out in my mind with Captain Ron on the radio, and Bill Murray's Caddyshack character stuck to the velcro.

Thanks for the howl!

And now, back to your regularly...

Re: macgregor or not to macgregor - lake michigan

Which MacGregor are you looking at? They made many boats in various configurations.

I'm going to assume that you're looking at one of the 26' motor sailers.

Re: L. Francis Herreshoff - boat designer... and guns

If you were running a double headsail with sheet-to-tiller steering, that baby'd run downwind until something rotted off, the boat beached, or got rammed and sunk. If the wind gradually shifted, so...

Diesel's tend to like heavier oil. Storage will have no effect, but I wouldn't run it for long.
