Been sailing since 1989, first on San Francisco Bay, then cruising on the Cheasapeake, and now located in South Carolina. Have been down the ICW twice to Florida and to the Bahamas. Have built my own sailboat, a 34 foot Richard Woods design catamaran and sailed her to the Bahamas and back to Annapolis. The boat, Bombay Duck, was sold in the summer of '07 and now looking for another catamaran, a Catalac 8M or 9M. I like to anchor out and explore out of the way places. Also, I'm a member of the local sailing club, the Long Bay Sailing Association. A great group of sailors!
SF Bay, SF Delta, Chesapeake Bay (all over) East Coast from Annapolis, MD to Biscayne Bay Florida. Bahamas Including, Berry Islands, Nassau, the Exumas down as far as Georgetown.
Cruise around locally for a few years and then cruise the winters in the tropics again. Am willing to help out new sailors with boat related stuff and of course, go sailing!
"John, that sucks. What sucks even more is I can't help you get the thing out. I tried it way back when the discussion first started as I too get some moisture in the cabinet. Unfortunately I couldn't get the door off without buggering…"

I know this post was a long time ago but I'm hoping you are both still around to help. I was having condensation problems as well and I just cut a hole to aleviate the problem. Cut too far cut the refigeration tube.…"
I am sorry not being able to tell you the measurement you need as I am very far from my boat. Once, I ordered one from a dealer and the piece was longer than the original one, so I returned instead of cutting it. Note that the hight mark is…"
I am considering a new jib for my B40. To improve light air performance, I may go to 145% or 150% which means I will need to be able to reef more easily as the wind pipes up. Has anyone added adjustable jib sheet tracks?See More
