"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,
I really enjoy boating, fishing and golf. My wife and I really enjoy chartering in the BVI's and are planning a trip to St. Martin in April. We've always been power boaters but we are really considering a sailboat.
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.
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.

"I have recently developed the same problem on our 2010 Beneteau 40. Any suggestions on the easiest way to remove the sump from the shower deck. I was able to remove the screws easily but the sump is sealed/adhered to the shower deck. Concerned about…"
I just returned from the boat. While onboard I looked through all the paperwork and owners manuals and did not find any information on the prop. So I cannot answer as to pitch, diameter, boat speed and rpm.
Perhaps someone else on this…"
I'm going to buy a flexofold propeller and I have a lot of doubt....
Do youk know which prop you have? A 18x13, a 17x14 or something else?
Do you know which is your max engine boat speed and the related RPM?
