Re: Do YOU own a Cal 2-29?(Headroom question)

When I was looking to buy the Cal 29-2 was on my list. I saw a few of them and if I recall correctly I had to stoop everywhere down below. I am 6'2".

Re: Winterization service in Annapolis

I found Jabin's rate to be higher than other yards in Annapolis for various services, but when I had the boat hauled for transport to St. Louis I ended up going with them anyway. I had the boat...

Re: Simrad to 10 or Raymarine st2000

Re: Need diesel for Alberg 30

Wewe, I am still curious. Why are bent on getting a diesel? There are so many other things to spend money on for your boat other than replacing a functioning engine.
