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!!!"

"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.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve. When switching on the inverter I have the following 2 potential issues:1) Voltage display is low, shows between 102-106 volts2) Humming noise coming from some sort of auto switch which is encased in a white plastic box behind the cabinet where the radios are mountedI only have the problem when the inverter is on, no issue with shore…See More
