Re: Huge price drop on Standard Horizon HX851

Re: Clockwise BVI in February

Re: Looking for a Catalina 320, 34 mark ii or 309

Sorry to revive an old thread but I find myself in a similar predicament. For various reasons, I've decided that a Catalina would be the right boat. There's a pretty clean 309 recently listed in my...

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

Re: Greenport Summer Slip Marina Recommendations
