Re: Annapolis Boat Show-April 28 – 30, 2017

Hey Walter, We have now moved from MS and are now living in DE. We are only 1 1/2 hours from Annapolis so if you guys decide to go just let me know and I can help you with accommodations if you want.

Re: Real rescue with 26X

I think I wrote this up for the Board once, but it won't hurt to do it again. I used to keep my Lifesling II ready for quick deployment until I figured out you can only throw it about 30 feet. 6 knots is 10 feet per second, so if you can't deploy in under 3 seconds you won't get the LS-II to the PO...

Re: Charleston, SC Advice Wanted

I have sailed with VK Maynard and you can leave your truck and trailer there for the whole weekend. It is a great place to sail with lots of history and touristy things ashore for entertainment.

Re: Still sanding

Try hiring a high school kid that needs to make some extra money for the prom. That would definitely be less labor intensive for you.

Re: Gas Can Question

Boat, I have the same problem with mine also. :x I am here to tell you that there is a solution to your problem. :wink: I learned that if I only fill my 12 gallon tank with 6 gallons, then healing (leaning) the gas does not leak out of the caps. I even leave the vent open when sailing and have never...
