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.

The only think I'm routinely required to do is motor in and out of the slip. She handles all of the provisioning as well, and keeps the cre...

Re: Push and Pull

Dr. Dolittle's Push-Me-Pull-Me... :D :D :D :D Works for me. I may look into this... As I grow older I find it increasingly hard to maneuver my boat on trailer in really tight situations particularly in putting my boat away in the dark at the marina where I keep it mast up. At home I also have a very...

Simultaneous with that, they said they were discontinuing the 26 at this time, stating that the tooling was aging and in need of replacement. They haven't quit...

Re: Swap Meet!

It's a Doyle sail. It is the stock M sail. It does have a bag. It looks almost new but is probably stretched out a bit. I'll get you a shipping price next week. The Repair could be done with a sailors needle and good thread, by hand in about an hour. Would be better then new. The fabric has some li...
