But that is a long time ago and so I am afraid that I can't offer any relevant and contemporary information.

Good luck with your search,

Thanks, Jeff.

I pass by Knickerbocker on my way to the town dock or Manhasset Bay marina every time I visit the boat, its a hotel now.

Re: Greetings from Manhasset Bay/Long Island Sound

I think McMichaels in Mamaronek and Cove Marine in Norwalk service large sailing yachts and should have a good rigger there. Hathaway, Reiser & Raymond closed their operation in Stamford and assets etc. were purchased by Cove Marine. I don't know if Tom moved over to Cove or not. He was very good!

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

I joined the Sabre owners yahoo group. LISSA web portal does not seem to work, I tried lissasabre.org and lissa-sabre.org but both of them give me spam alerts, do you know if they have a different domain?

I would love to get in touch with your friend in Little Neck bay, you can send me his name and number via PM, I will contact him.

Will PM you Tom from Little Neck bay contact info.
He sails a 28 ft Sabre that he bought new about 40 years ago that looks/is in better than new out the factory door condition. Is true!

Re: Greetings from Manhasset Bay/Long Island Sound

Most yards will let you do your own work. Exception is typically sanding and painting the bottom. Even there some yard have it in their contract but in reality look the other way. The Brewers yard in Glen Cove is that way. So talk the yard managers about what you want to do yourself.

Manhasset Bay Shipyard allows DIY work during winter (except sanding/painting which I wouldn't want to do anyway). Al Lizza (rigger) is also associated with that yard - best of both worlds! He seems busy at the moment, will likely catch up with him in the next few days.

Thanks.
