Re: Stupid questions about launch day

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

Barry you have me drooling over autopilots now. Life stinks on a windy day singlehanded at the mast with no autopilot. The boat won't stay pointed into the wind for long.

Re: Anyone Interested??

You guys are looking at it the wrong way. That boat is ABSOLUTELY worth 10K. By the way, anyone want to buy a nice c&c 27 WITH A-4 for $23,000?
