Re: Brakes not dis-engaging -- VERY hot!!!

Chris, Sounds logical. I am probably going to skip out early one day...or skip a day entirely...this week and go out and examine that. But I will call the trailer dealership first and see what they tell me. But the tongue is extended because I can still stick the pin in the manual "reverse lock-out"...

Brakes not dis-engaging -- VERY hot!!!

My time sailing in the Chesapeake and from Casa Rio Marina has finally come to an end. Today my buddy and I got König all packed up and ready for the 1000 mile trip to my new home on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Re: Upper Chesapeake sailors

Thanks for sharing, Jim! It truly was a pleasure meeting you, Pedro and the other sailors. This race is a lot of fun and gives one a good reason to get some serious night sailing, with a group of sailors. Hopefully, especially after viewing your race review, next year some more Macgregor/Ventures w...

Re: Upper Chesapeake sailors

Sippy Cup took place over the weekend. Unfortunately my 26M was TROUNCED by two very nice Mac Ventures...Venture 22 ("Whimsey") and a Venture 25 ("Mis Ad-Venture"). In fact Pedro (aka "Sea Wind") and I had to "withdraw" from the race after about 30 miles. The last 12 miles were due South from Baltim...

Steered about 3 miles using the boat hook and a bare foot to physically turn the motor while disconnected from steering system after the rack & pinion broke. Rudders were down but were strai...

Re: Pictures taken from your MacGregor

You can't upload pics to this server. You have to store somewhere else on the web and link to it. Many use photobucket. Create account...upload pic(s)...then select the "img" link (of the 4 different links they offer) and you can paste it directly here and the photo will show up. Cheers, Jim Sailing...

First night we were beached at Hart-Miller Island (highly recommended) and had a cookout. After sitting out a 2-hour rain squall Saturday morning we all ...

Down in the Magnolia State (Mississippi for those that aren't familiar with the State nickname) for a few days to get my household goods that were just moved from VA to MS. Escaped from the jungle of boxes to play with my new boat to include moving it from Biloxi Small Craft Harbor over to Gulfport ...
