Hey Bill, Blowing to hard for sailing in Lake Ontario at the moment! :-) Will be studying in  P.V. Mex this winter- hoping to get some quality sailing time in on the Bay!

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.

After removing the impeller the plate simply sits behind it and is easily removed with a dental pick/ bearing pick/ or toothpick. I also added the Speedseal Life cover. Nice device.The wear plate made a difference. Upon startup after an impeller change before changing the wear plate  out, I would sometimes need…See More
