Ahoy there, all ye' Florida sailors,

Who amongst you is a multihull enthusiast? I have an F28 for sale and am looking for a blue water cruising tri in the 35' range.

Let me know what you know.

Thanks,

Went to Cayo Costa (Pelican bay) last weekend to hook up with the 17 boats in the WCTSS. Had a great time with bon fires Fri. and Sat night. (you can't do that on the beach). We do it twice a year as a club tho I do it much more often.
I will be heading out friday from Cape Coral for a day cruise with grandma aboard (first sailing trip).
I probably will sail the gulf by the Sanibel Lighthouse down to Bonita.

If you are near St Pete around the 12th of September sign up for a Windrider Demo ride at Sail Honeymoon on the Dunedin Causeway. The Windrider Company wants people to sign up at www.windrider.com/demofl I am not affiliated in any way with the company, I just like the boats and they just bought the inactive WR company and want to get it going. 15+kts of speed for under $10K brand new can't be beat!

John,
Your port of Entry all depends on where your are departing from, ie - West Palm, Lauderdale, Miami, etc. And if you are looking a going to the Abaco's or maybe Nassau, or the Exuma's or further. Some of the Ports of Entry will require you to get dockage while you clear in, while others will allow you to anchor out.
Hope this helps

New to the site. Looking forward to meeting sailors in the area who might want to group sail. I have no plans or special locations in mind. I am getting anxious for a good cruise.

This is a pretty quiet group, last activity in March?! So now that I am down in Jacksonville, can anyone give me some interesting places to check out on the river? What are you all doing this summer?

"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue. I agree it seems rather odd that someone wired the toilet pump to the engine…"

Questions From a new B40 Owner

Hi All - I'm the proud new owner of an '11 B40.  2 cabin model with 54hp yanmar, furling main.  Have had the boat for a few weeks now and about 120 miles of sailing (and motoring).  Love it, but I have a few questions about wiring, rig tuning, plumbing, etc. and I'm hoping to find one or some of you to help.1.  The shower sump pump will run once the water level activates the float switch, pump the sump dry (kind of a pulsing suction, not smooth like the bilge pump), then enough water will flow…See More

teleflex engine control problems

I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly.  But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse.  Once it passes that point it moves smoothly.   And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult.  I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
