hunter 26

I can attest to Jeff''s statement. This year we decided to put our H26 in a slip from April to November to save launching and retrieving time. We hauled it after 6 weeks to do some work on it,...

Learning in the UK

Hi Dominique,

Aha! Found it on the map. I bet you do have ferocious tides. We sail the Chesapeake Bay, with a maximum tide of two feet (that''s on springs and neaps) and currents so light they...

Jeffrey,
