SV Aventura (Lagoon 37 TPI catamaran) will leave New Orleans Wednesday morning on a two month cruise along the northern Gulf coast and western Florida.  One of the best parts of cruising is meeting and talking with other cruisers, so if you see us in a marina or anchored nearby, please stop and say “Hello.”   We’d be happy to spring for coffee.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
