Re: Real Cruisers verse Internet Arguers

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I'm not sure if there has been a post here about this, but I'll put it out there.

Re: Sailrite LSZ-1 WANTED

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

Stearns. About 10 years old, maybe 12. Have been on the boat all of these years, summer and winter.
