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.…"
"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!!!"
"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."
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".
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.
Hey friend..thanks for things to check
This is where I am today:

I'm taking this slowly...I have had some things to think about among:
I'm having a diver to check the prop, and zincs could have something entwinged.
More checking on:
Speeds and RPM's
Compression test...leak down test
Prop pitch and see burnish
Shot piston rings or marred Walls
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.
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.
Thanks for acepting as friends, and your kind remarks...If you can believe it I awoke to SNOW this morning...so I look forward to warm weather too. I do love my Freedom, and I know they have a good reputation...I bought it as was told an easy sailboat to handle...now I just got to learn.
It is believed Paige is a scam of some sort...let me know if you get a reply from her/him.
Hello I found an old cal 36, but it needs a mast and boom. Any ideas , boat has been sitting a long ti me. Do you think it's worth the look. I found some masts that may fit from 700$ to 5k any advice for a novice big boat want a be. Thanks john
"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…"
