Thanks Jeff...it is -16 deg C here at the moment and I am watching every sailing youtube video I can find to stay sane! Not sure if I will survive 'til May :|

Re: Winter Reading List

I enjoyed The sail of two idiots! Learn what it is like to sell everything to buy a boat and live on the hook in the Caribbean. The sailors were complete novices and learned some valuable lessons. It was an easy read and recommended for any person contemplating such an adventure. Link http://asailof...

Re: So do you have any trips planned already and ...

I agree with u that taking the mast for 1000 islands is a must and did it once before. I am referring to the 30 000 island area on Georgian bay. It looks only suitable for small crafts with shallow draft but would welcome opinions on it.

30 000 islands in Ontario. I will probably leave the mast at home as sailing looks difficult.

My Mac came with almost everything except for a fish finder and down riggers. Those were my first purchases. :)

1000 Islands Sailing Video - Lupo di Mare

Please enjoy this video I made for my dad’s 79th birthday. Here is the background... My Dad (aka Lupo di Mare) grew up in a small undeveloped island off the coast of Italy called Sardegnia. After no more than a few years of schooling during WWII, he had to work the land and was destined to a life of...

Re: Honda BF50 Tilt Lock Lever problem

Thanks so much for taking the photos. You have gone beyond the call of duty! I now know what is going on down there and will let the admiral know too. 8) I think I have lost the crank and spring too.

I did send you a private message too so pls check your inbox.

Re: Honda BF50 Tilt Lock Lever problem

Thanks for the reply. I do have a few screws loose but not on the Honda. My boat is in the water so seeing what is going on down there is difficult. I did have a good feel around and did not feel any springs. The two half shafts are not connected to each other and each one turns freely. For now I ha...

Honda BF50 Tilt Lock Lever problem

I never used the tilt lock levers on the Honda BF50 but this year it appears that the mechanic who serviced the motor (not a Honda certified dealer) did. I noticed that he had put them in the locked position for trailering (not sure if this is recommended as the book recommends a motor support bar)....

Re: Hunter Edge 27 discontinued?

I just find it strange that there is no mention of it on their website even in the old fleet section.
