I am planning to be in Channel Islands Harbor from Feb 16 -19 working on a friends C&C36 and would like to sail at least one day depending on weather and where I am with minor repairs and maint. I will not single hand a friends boat so any crew?
Or, if you would like crew on your boat I would be happy to help!

i just wrote all this on i guess update status and at the end it said i only could have 140 characters (or something} but it was a lot of effort to write so i copied it to so cal ....it a blog i guess........its been a while since i have visited sea knots......a place where we relate. i have been off work for 7 actually 9 months till now, i sailed with my son twice once in florida and bahamas for a month then later flew to st lucia and got to sail carribbeans for 2 weeks. been to catalina about 20 times stayed on the backside for buccaneers that was awesome what a nice change, should have done it sooner! my boat is in need of tlc in the form of $$$$$$ so i need to work if i want to fix her or get a better one! just started night shift big change--and the hosp is in la--traffic!! we cant change the wind but hopefully we can adjust our sails cause the engine might not start! as long as its still fun do it! so i've been deprived of sleep and ran around drinkin in a pirate outfit don't hold it against me! l

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
