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.

"My hose clamps also needed tightening last year after I overheated the engine after an impeller failure. I assumed it was because the hose expanded or the clamp was not tightened properly when the boat was built.

I recently found water in the sump aft of the engine under the packing gland. Of course my first suspicion was the Volvo gland, but turns out that the water was coming from the entry to the water lift muffler. Tightening both hose clamps stopped the leak. I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More
Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road. To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
Hope all's well with you so far in this new year, 2015. I might start checking SK's a little more regularly now that some of the 'usual suspects' are checking in again. Sent you a hello on Yahoo Messenger…"
