Re: How far are you from your sailboat?

We are approximately one hour away, we are on the boat every weekend with few exception.

Re: cost to seal through hulls and install a new backing plate

I have Spartan seacocks on my 1975 B-24, where would I look to find Bronze plugs for these? The Spartan web site did not seem to have them.
Any direction would be much appreciated, Thanks.

Re: Why I sail small boats

We got our first boat this past spring, a B24, basically 6000 lbs with 3000 under water :) it's a great boat, and like yours it's a grand pocket cruiser. Oh, and it's paid in full. :)
