You only need to reef when you need to reef. Most boats reef when the wind becomes too strong.

Sure, Visions carry a lot of sail and they need to reef sooner. But, when the wind is light they...

I haven't been aboard a 32. It sounds like the batteries and charger are in the way aft lockers on the sugar scoop. Am I correct?

On my 36, the sugar scoop lazarettes are for storage only. I...

I had some leaking into my starboard lazarette when I first bought the boat. It turns out the shore power cable wasn't allowing the cover to close all the way. I just train the cable up...

As you have read above, it's just an exercise in blocks, beams and jacks. There are as many different methods as there are people. Get your head around it and you can do it.

I don't know how old you are, but life is short. If you wait until you can afford to pay cash, you will never own a boat. Not a decent one.

Don't buy a "Fixer Upper" either. You'll be sitting...

When they catch me, then I will pay the taxes. Until then, I'm sticking it to the man.

Hopefully, our harbor master won't let the assessors on our docks.

That looks like a project. I'm guessing about $10,000. and 1,000 hours needed.

You should be able to find something much nicer.

Was this the same Vision that was in charter at Tradewinds?
