Re: 26X Hatch Repair

A good place to start would be
Blue Water Yachts. They can be
found via the internet, or if you
look around this site, you will see
one of their adds. Just click on
it and it will take you to their site...

Re: Source for Mastlight 2-pin Connector?

Anchor light is to be located at the mast head. This so it can be seen for 360 degrees, at a distance of two miles. The light located just under half way up the mast is the steaming light, and is to be lit at night while under power, but not at night while under sail. It can not be seen 360 degrees ...

Re: Southport Sail

You guys should figure out how to send that wet over here, to Lake Tahoe. Boy, can we use the water. I'm going to scout all the way around the lake in the next few days, looking for the best place to launch. We just had a little rain early this morning. Not very much, but every little bit helps... :...

Re: Bugs!!

I have a friend of mine, that has used Deet Deep woods to restore plastic
head light covers on cars. He posted photos on FB. seemed to do the job.
Do not know about the long term effects of the Deet on the head light
covers as of yet.
