About Me:
Lived on Lake Michigan all my life. Started sailng with my dad on our Lightning at age 5, was proud owner of 8' sailing pram at age 8, and went through a plywood centerboard weekly cutting ice infront of club in winter. Dad sold Lightning at age 9 and bought Morgan 28. Learned to sail her solo on Lake Mich. at age 13. Dad got new Ericson 35-2 when I was 17, sailed her ever since, purchasing her 15 years ago when dad went to power. Racing days grew into just cruising, & have just cruised since. Live aboard summers now and love it. Sail mainly Lake Michigan. Raced/crewed Lightning, Morgan 28, Islander 37, Ericson 32, Ericson 35, Ericson 39, and finally spoiled by SV "Sliv" Nautor Swan 43 during my race years back when.
Lost my First Mate, Died 2/13/10 to a buterfly brain tumor.

"Thanks for all your comments my friends at Seaknots. The halyard has been rerun without passing through the small stainless steel eye, as seen easily in the pic provided by Chris on 17th August. All furling now takes place without any undue effort,…"

Mike Brown replied to Jochen Vetterlein's discussion O43: Good tracking on starboard side - poor on port side in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"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…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"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"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"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…"
