I've finished painting the non-skid on my lockers with KiwiGrip, a product from New Zealand described in the January 2011 issue of Good Old Boat magazine. Here's my experience: KiwiGrip Non-SkidSee More
Hi Anne, I don't know how to reply on the firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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 email@example.com. I will give you my phone number.

I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More
Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road. To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
Hope all's well with you so far in this new year, 2015. I might start checking SK's a little more regularly now that some of the 'usual suspects' are checking in again. Sent you a hello on Yahoo Messenger…"
