Hi Anne, I don't know how to reply on the sailors@stuffandjunk.net to you. I am just getting the hang of that sight.
If you still need assistance for the Cock Island race on June 20th, let me know.
I would also love to give you a hand with the prior prep work and moving the boat.
I will be able to help Thursday after 5pm but i have to report at 530am the next day to work.
Friday after 5pm until Monday 5am, which would allow me to help you bring the boat back on Sunday.
I can participate on Wednesday night races but I will not be available until the 12 of June due to transportation.
my # 404-433-9628 Jodi
give me a call anytime after 1700 or txt anytime.

Yeah, I haven't gotten the full coverage on tow insurance. But, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Now that I have the thing back in the water (as of yesterday), there's always the possibility!

Teak seat metal protrusions

All knowing list....I have a new question.My boat is 9 years old now, and the teak seats are beginning to have metal "brads" sticking up out of the teak. My teak has weathered, as I am of the  natural teak camp, not varnishing or oiling heavily. Has anyone else seen this? Did Beneteau use brads of some sort along with the mastic? I plan on taking a small grinding bit on my dremel tool and touching each one until they are no longer standing proud, then do a little light sanding. Thoughts and…See More
