Michael:
Thank you for the offer. I crew on a 373 Bene. Great boat, smooth sailing on the Atlantic (2 small rain storms with a few boomers) and easy to handle at Hell-Gate with the 2 currents. We had some small swirls but she breezed right through.
All the best

Back in the late 80's I met and raced with Elizabeth Roosevelt and her nephew on her J-24 out of Oyster Bay. She was a very active and competitive racer....I'm sure she is still sailing, if she is able

Will be driving to Oyster Bay. No boat trip this time. Also, not my book another author. History of Theodore Roosevelt's work with conservation and the Nat'l Parks.

Just got word that all the hatches and portlights are done and are on their way up.

By the 29th I'll probably be out at Block, Cuttyhunk or the Vineyard. After that will be heading down to the Chesapeake....but if I'm still in the area we'll head over on the 29th.

Are you in Setauket Harbor? That looks a little tricky for a 6' draft entering at other than hide tide...or are you in Port Jeff harbor? How are the ferry wakes on a mooring?

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
