Nice to read you enjoy PH!
Hope my new boat is finished soon and once we will join too - despite the fact that I never raced in my whole life ;-)

Mind sharing what is so special in MNL-Boracay and what you think about HKG-MNL (or SUBIC or wherever it ends)?

Hello Blubaju,

I am planning to go to the Philippines in the future.

How do you find the sailing and facilities there?

What do you use for maps and Pilots? Are they easy to get?

Where are you in the Philippines now?

sorry Pinoys, this crazy upload feature always cuts the flag instead of leaving the proportions intact, but does not give any hint of the accepted picture size either. I tried for more than an hour but have to stop now, I'll try later again or if someone has one in an uploadable size, please let me know

"Robert, thanks for the update, glad all is well. As for lapping the gear box cones in such a short period of time I still have my doubts about it. Just remember not to fix something that isn't broke.  Mike"

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
