Re: Friends' boat just went down

He’s the real deal

I probably misquoted him.

He has a point.

Re: Friends' boat just went down

Sailboat racing is not racing. Trying to beat .51 cal tracer rounds out of a hot LZ is racing. My neighbor ( combat in Anzio, Korea, and two tours in VietnNam shut down the VFW with “ if you don’t have a CSM you aren’t a vet you were a government worker “ Ouch, that’s harsh. Didn’t argue it with him

Re: I'm back...and other tales of woe

If you back about 10 years in history you will find my compression pole on my :macx: was made of substandard materials, aka mild steel instead of stainless, and corroded out. This leaves a massive through hole leak forward whenever the bow is loaded by more than about 200# - I woke up one morning to...

Re: Thank You Health for getting the forum working again

Honestly Heath – I must admit I gave up on you guys – I just figured the site was gone right along with the factory so I sort of deleted my links and stuff then someone sent me an email that the site was back up – otherwise I probably would have never known and would have just moved on. I must say ...

Re: Friends' boat just went down

Most beginner sailing programs move the serious young student pretty quickly into racing. Probably true across all sports for kids now. When my two were middle school, and we started seriously Sailing, the Admiral wanted them to strengthen swimming skills - we could not find a learn to swim program...

Re: PSA - Wear those PFDs...always. Branson MO Duckboat Sink

How about... “We have never needed to use PFDs but let’s spend 30seconds to review them in case we do.” Hey....just like the airlines ...the only six sigma safety interaction the public experiences It was amazing to see the attention span change on flights after the USAir flight that landed in the H...

Re: Job x-fer to Orlando Airport

Sorry to revive an old thread but I finally made it to Florida! Just so happened that a spot opened up in Tampa and we moved down here in August of this year. We ended up in Land O Lakes where we could get the house we needed and good school for the kids. I sold my :macx: a few years ago and bought...

Re: Crossing the Atlantic

It looks like Spain is an easier place to arrive in than France. Having lived in France, I know first-hand that doing anything that requires permission is a non-starter. A vehicle shipper could probably do it. The price for a whole container seems to be close to $5000. Now I'm toying with the idea ...

Re: Limbs 1, Mast 0

Someone should be able to find who made that extrusion for Mac and link. I would guess it would be down in SoCal area near the old factory.

Dwyer RI

Offshore Spars MI?

Kenyon RI
