"Good Morning, it has to be easier to study in Puerto Vallarta vs Canada. Great weather and some fine tequila. Love that older boat you and a friend are standing by. Do you sail that one? Happy Holidays, Bill"

Hi Bill, It's a Mustang. Pricey but given all the other gadgets and gizmos on a boat, my most valuable item. If you search around a bit, you may see a promotion.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the nice words about my books. I wish I knew more writers who write about boats and the sea. I know of Sam Llewellyn, Paul Garrison, Linda Greenlaw, Justin Scott (Shipkiller).... I think that's about it. Maybe I'd include Randy Wayne White (the early ones) on that list.

I'm working on the new book. More sailing than ever.

Hi Bill.
Boy, I wish Circe were mine. She is a beautiful boat. No, she belongs to a fellow I met in the Abacos last summer. She is a Bristol. I don't remember the exact length - either a 40 or a 42. Her owner sails her singlehanded and I loved the story about him putting up his spinnaker alone while sailing out the Whale Cay Passage.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the kind words about the books. I'm working on a new stand alone sailing thriller, but not done yet.

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
