Re: Permanent winter cover

I see they offer two styles of covers: boomtents and covered frames. Can I get away with a boomtent in MA? The biggest risk appears to be having a snow load pressing against the stanchions and...

Re: Yanmar parts in Massachusetts

Also, where do I buy marine diesel lube oil (e.g Rotella, Delvac)? Chandleries don't sell it, can I buy it at car parts stores?

Re: Welded mast on a Vision 32?

Re: In case of apocalypse what sailboat and how to use it?

Whatever boat you use, make sure you have a sea anchor. According to the canon, zombies can climb anchor rodes.
