Re: OOPS! Could have lost the mast today

Hey at least it stayed up! Wow. You are obviously in Grenada now. Hopefully it was an uneventful trip across the pond.

Take care,

Re: PFDs for your tender

Yep... what TomMaine does. Watch them though... they will rot in the sun. FWC (FLorida FIsh Wildlife) were issuing citations if they felt the PFD's were not in good condition. We would probably...

Re: Generator

We have experience with Mastervolt 3.5 Whisper and a Fisher Panda 4 or 5 (I forget now). Both were diesel generators.

The mastervolt was an absolute pain. I was ALWAYS working on...

I thought this was where you and Steve Kaufman start giving me the benefits of the HR... (snicker). Curious if you two met up, btw. Think he was up in Maine for the GAM.

Re: Sold my boat...

The c400 is a fantastic 2 cabin boat. Honestly, it is probably a better one cabin boat with a cabin that is ok in the V for a couple. The V is not very large in that boat with a bulkhead that comes...

Re: Crealock 37 dinghy recommendations, anyone?

Yes, you read it right. We sold our C400. We are no longer Catalina owners. Still have the Tayana up here in the sound.
