Re: Going to be looking at a 26' C&C next week

If it has a split backstay look carefully at the castings on the rear quarters that anchor the stays. I have seen broken ones on the 26.

Re: Apostle Islands Trip

As stated watch the wind when anchoring overnight. Plan an anchor watch or set an alarm on the GPS. A charter dragged anchor last week around the islands, grounded and called for a tow.
