Hi Anne, I don't know how to reply on the email@example.com 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.

give me a call anytime after 1700 or txt anytime.
Anne, I am in Hampton and belong to HYC. I race Wed night beer cans and some Saturdays with OPCYC, but give me a shout on other days if you want some sailing company. My regular email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will give you my phone number.

"On Longhawk we use a Rocna 20KG. I changed out the chain gypsy when new to one that handles 5/16 high Test chain. Then I went with 175 ft of 5/16 HT chain tailed with 200 ft of three strand.(overkill, but I had the rode as supplied new).
For a short…"
"My wheel leather is shot. Not only do I have spots of eroded / worn areas but the stitching is now going also. Instead of trying to salvage the Cordavan/ Buckskin or whatever color they call it, I plan on stitching up some new elk leather grey…"
"Chis, I have a 2008 B43 with what I expect is the same charger. Its a Xantrex 40 Amp.
It does "run" a lot. As Mike responded. the fan is often on. Mine has done this since essentially day one, cycling often.I have 660 amp hours of…"
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
