Slip fees for Lake Champlain

Right now we have a 30' Catalina that we keep on the Pamlico. We might need to relocate to Burlington, VT for job reasons. What is a ball park for slip fees there?

Thanks,

Jeff

I'd guess that the roughness of the galvanizing on a CQR anchor allows it to have a holding power that is 10% more than an equivalent shiny stainless steel anchor. Just a guess...wonder if any tests...

Vented-loop

I'm installing a Wilcox-Headmate in my Catalina 30 this weekend to replace the same model head. It does not have a vented loop...should I install one, I would rather not?

Sorry...I was hoping that the picture showed a loop and that it was aligned with the camera so you didn't see the circle. It is just a loop through the clew, it doesn't hang down any farther than...

1/8" cable in genoa clew

Why is there an 1/8" diameter wire cable loop that is about 12" long going through my genoa clew? I bought the boat this way. What purpose does it serve?

I remember my mom had one of these in the early '80's. Are they still considered safe? A stick on fire wrapped in my wife's hair sounds like a bad idea. Maybe they are ingeniously designed.

Wing on wing

When running wing on wing with a wisker pole, what side should the mainsail be placed on. Should it be placed on the side to favor the windward or leeward side?

Internet Wi-fi Hotspots

This is a question for all of you techo-salts out there. In your experience what percentage of marinas along the east coast have a wi-fi connection available for free?
