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?

Shower drain check valve (non return valve) location on B43

Hi, the water in the front shower drain, when pumped out, seems to partially flowing into the aft shower drain box. And the water pumped out from that seems to be flowing back a little. I think the check valve is malfunctioning but I haven’t been able to locate it. Can anyone help please. Many thanks.See More

Power Cord change

After 10+ years it was time to change the 50A 125/250 V shore power splitter. It had served well but it was showing signs of degradation due to heat. I also had previously changed out the boat side power inlet connectors to the SmartPlug type, changing out the fittings on the shore power cable to match. I absolutely love the SmartPlug system. No twisting, sure connection, much more surface area, etc.I decided to buy short factory made 25 FT Smartplug power cords as I normally berth stern-to and…See More
