Hello from Texas,
I have a friend that likes to rig up his canoe with a primitive sail. You look like you have it down to a science! Is there any advice I can give him or even some specs :). Is that your beautiful vessel next to the canoe? Wow! what a sweetie.
I tried to rescue a beautiful wooden boat that was rotting away here in Texas, she was called "Touching Sky" she had sailed from Ca. and all through the pacific (50,000 miles). The owner passed away, the new owner just let her sit in our brackish water for years and wouldn't sell her. Broke my heart watching her rot away. I don't know if I was capable of restoring her but I would of at least tried:)
Anyways you sure have a beautiful sailboat.
Kent, I don't have much time left so I'm starting to distribute my sailing library from the 60s and 70s
Sailing books like:
- Cruising Multihulls, Chris White
Hand Reef and Steer, Henderson
Wooden Boats, Michael Ruhlman
Two on a Big Ocean, Roght,
Spurrs Upgrading the Cruising Sailboat
the origina Tans-Atlantic Trimaran given to me by Aruthur Piver in Sausalito in the 60s, etc.
Would you like them? You could pass along the ones you don't want to other sailors in Eureka.
Email me your shipping address and I'll send them to you.

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched.

New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
