Thanks for the welcome, Dave! Always a pleasure to see you. Been out and about traversing the Keys but back in Port in Boot Key Harbor. Should be here throughout hurricane season. Hopefully I'll get over here to Seaknots more often now! Big Hugs!

Dave, Everyone getting together sounds great. I will try to collect some data from members in order to come up with a location in close proximity to as many members as possible. I am on the hard for another week, but should be back in by this Friday. Taking a short trip to Norfolk this weekend. Will keep in touch. Gaye

Dave,

Is your boat a HR 40? What do you think of it?

My old Malo 34 was built in the same area as the HRs.

Dave, sorry we got interrupted before, during the chat. Internet is a bit spotty where we are...

Hey Dave,
No worries on the Paul/Peat switching.
Since "they're" always robbing Peter to pay Paul, in this economy, maybe not a bad thing.

"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"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
