About Me:
I love sailing - I lived on my Oday 272 for a year at the Sheraton Grand Marina in New Bern, NC - Sailing is my passion! I love the San Jaun Islands and plan to sail them. That is why I have sold all I had and made the big move from North Carolina to the Puget Sound Of Washington State. Now I am looking for a sailboat again. I want and need to be out there on the water. It's just a part of who I am..

Destinations visited:

Looking to:
Just taking one wave at a time at this moment..

if there is a choice between diesel and a hangitofftheback outboard, i would go with the diesel if you have the dough---i did thehangitofftheback outboard on a 26 islander and i wished i had done the diesel trip---is a difference in weight distribution and propulsion-----not to mention boat trim and appearance...

Quick reaction on the outboard vs. diesel question: I have no firsthand experience with an outboard, but a sailing buddy of mine who has an Oday 28 had to repower a couple years ago (the Sail Drive engine system was shot), and he opted to put a 15hp outboard on the transom instead. I can see a couple pros & cons for each (outboard and diesel), but you might want to try searching on some of the better online bulletin boards for archived threads on this question. If you're still in love with the 272 (and why wouldn't you be?), you may have a tough decision facing you. Flip a coin!

Hey there, Billy D! Fancy meeting you here. (Maybe you're the reason I'm here -- if so, thanks for the invite.)

Happy sailing, captain.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
