John Storring commented on Charlotte Wiggs's blog post Beverages on a Boat..
"Charlotte, When we were cruising full time, we are now only short term cruising, we always stored wine behind the settees, (sp), in old socks, white for white, black for red.  I also hate plastic wine glasses so stored glass ones the same way.…"

Boats I own/owned

"photos are gone, but like you, too many boats. I'm down to 9 now. One cruiser, 3 beach cats, a sunfish, a Victory 21, and three day sailors. My wife, unlike zeehag thinks more than one is too many!!!"

John Storring commented on Kevin M. Morton's group Catalina Owners: past, present, and future
"New owner of Cat 30 "Fandango" Mk.11, TRBS, #4348. Sail from our farm on east end of Lake Ontario, near Picton, ON. So far I am very impressed with my Catalina and expect to do more sailing in 2012. Will update my profile with pics."

Profile Information

Profile Type:
Prince Edward Bay, Lake Ontario
About Me:
Newly retired Pilot, Cruised part time in winter from North West Coast Canada to Florida, Bahamas, Carribean, and now looking forward to sailing in fresh water for the first time on much downsized "Good Old Boat".
Current location:
Milford, Ont.
Looking to:
I am an absolute "BOAT NUT", love boats of all sorts and have been boating all of my life. Had my first boat, flat bottom rowboat, at the age of 9 yrs. and rowed her to school every day. Have owned many boats over the years and am still fascinated by everything boats. Have built two boats so far, small dinghy and 20 ft. motor skiff, and am planning to build rowing Dory this winter. Hoping to do more sailing summer of 2012 but seem to be busier since I retired than I was when I was working.

John, One other thought to find your old boat. If you go to the Fuji website, there is a listing of status for all Fuji 35s. If you remember the hull number (it is probably in the Lats and Ats article -- I have a copy on the boat) you can locate the current owner, and often email address.

Hope that was helpful.

The answer to your simple question is No. I have seen your boat in Long Bearch, I think it was. There are 4 -- 5 Fuji 35s and 32 around here. Mine was originally kept in Oxnard, and was called Mi Vida for the last 20 years.

They are great boats.

"Even though I owned an 1980 O'Day 30, I can't answer that question.  However, a builder that screws in hand rails on a 30 foot cruiser would be asking for liability claims.  I don't believe O'Day would have done…"

"Has anyone ever removed your handrails for resealing?  I have a leak and I'm not sure if I need to remove them from the topside or from below in the salon. "

Resealing handrails on Oday 30

I'm going to attempt to reseal my handrails on our 84' Oday 30.  I noticed there are screw holes (teak plugs) both on the topside and down in the salon.  Does anyone know if both screws need to be removed to reseal or just the topside screw?See More
