"For those who aspire for a big multi but don't have the where-with-all or if you want to sail a fast, inexpensive multi: Near St Pete the 12th of September sign up for a Windrider Demo ride at Sail Honeymoon on the Dunedin Causeway. The…"

I rented a WR at Sail Honeymoon a couple of years ago and even in light air, 6kts or so, of wind it was a hoot to sail. They are having a Demo Day at SH on the Dunedin Causeway in Dunedin Fl the 12th of September. New owners etc., just sign up for a…
We now have a Hunter 23.5 and a pair of Hobie Adventure Islands besides miscellaneous kayaks. I do miss my Sea Pearl Tri.
We sold the Sea Pearl and bought a 93 Hunter 23.5 in September. It was a little odd going back to a monohull, but we seem to be getting there. Lots of sailing events planned, check my website at www.flwwp.com
I teach at ZHS so I've got the summer off and Hudson isn't too far away. I'm packing up right now for 5 days in the Keys on my buddy Dave's Mac 26X - he posts on this board too. I'm looking forward to trying the X out, it's on my shortlist for next boat. I like my Tri but something bigger - not as big as yours, our club, WCTSS, is centered on trailer sailing - for those 1 - 2 week opportunities. My Tri is flat out fun but it is like tent camping: after the 3rd day you are ready to go home. Keep an eye on our club board and join us on one of our Caladesi or Ft Desoto Cruises, we always have a good time.

"Oh yeah, forgot to mention battery monitor. The stock panel voltage panel is basically worthless in determining battery condition unless you've let the batteries sit idle for hours. Purchase a good battery monitor. It is vital for being up to…"
Congrats on the long life of your batteries.
May 2008 our B43 came equipped with 2 Dekka 4d Agms that are rated for 198ah's of service for a total house bank of pretty close to 400ah (396ah). Engine battery was Dekka Group…"
