Hi Bill, You're a guy in the "know" about such things. Suky interested in a Pearson 323 (in the Dominican Republic), you know anyone with one? She'd like to sail one, between here and Chesapeake Bay. Any sites she should be looking at for info on one? Thanks, Terri

Cptn. Bill,
What did you think of Marrero's Mansion? I've checked it out on the internet and it looks like a nice place to stay. Last time in Key West we stayed at the Key Lime Inn.

Hi Bill, hope you and Andrea had a great Thanksgiving. How's the weather up there? (grin). Did you sell your boat or did you decide to keep it?

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
