Re: Catamaran experience

Hi~some newbie to cat ownership opinions. I went from a 35' mono to a 34' cat (Prout). Yes, it's family approved. There's more separation and privacy for each bunk. It feels safer so far, I've...

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

Hi~to me the marine ply is a good thing versus balsa core. Since the boat is in the water try not to do anything that would keep it on the hard. First project might be stopping the leaks. ...

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

Hi~since I'm an owner of a Morgan 35, thought I'd post a few thoughts. First off

Re: spare (back up) anchor question

Re: From one style boat to another Mono/Multi

Having just made the move from a 35' mono to a 35' cat I can share my reasons. Shallow draft and livability. Also every family member said go for it, take a hit for the team. Space aboard and the...

Re: topsail island

There's not a lot of room inside to sail there. Wilmington and Beaufort are good to put in and do a day sails in protected waters. If we go to Topsail for the weekend I leave the sailboat at home. I...

Re: recommendations on jumping off point from Florida to Bahamas

Hi~check out Lake Sylvia in Ft Lauderdale, this is where you can anchor and wait for good weather for a trip across the Stream. Since you're on a trailer sailer like me you'll need some room to be...

Re: Miami & Keys Depth?

If you like some peace and quiet at night there's a good chance you'll want to stay somewhere with a depth you couldn't anchor. A good bit of the deep water anchorages have bars with music nearby,...

Re: maine to bahamas and back

haha, I agree on wind speeds and boat length. Way to go on the trip, that's a long one and worth all the effort. I just got back from five weeks in the Abacos on my Compac 23, during which two...

Hey Dean-what has happened to make you want to redo the keel bolts? I have a 70's Morgan 35. The keel is lead but the bilge has rusty metal on top that the bolts go through on mine. Great boat but I...

Thanks, boat type of course.
Call sign? Is that a shortened version of the boat name?
