You should check out this site more often and join the Female sailors group. We have some good discussions there. I've also posted lots of photos on my page of my 30 years of cruising experience. Check them out.
Hey, cute hat. Tell me more about your life and your boat. I;m new to this site and boats. Got my boat in Feb, now I need to take lessons,,,,,not much sailing experience...I would be honored for you to accept to be my friend....Lola
Hi,I say your posting. I am a retired lawyer with an Irwin 52 sailboat presently in Miami. I am planning to go up the Florida coast then to Georgia and probably South Carolina including the barrier islands. I would like to find a mate to come with me.
How does that sound?
The best way to contact me is at email@example.com.
I hope to hear from you.Dave
New to the water? What's not to love! Like you, I'm looking forward to the day I retire, but I don't foresee installing a putting green on the deck of my boat. Enjoy golf, but don't give up the water. Good to see you on SeaKnots.
I installed Lifeline AGM batteries upon commissioning the boat when new. I used GPL 27T's on the engine start and bow thruster service. I used the 6 volt GPL 4ct's in the house bank ( total of six, 660 amp hour capacity)I just had to replace both of the GPL27T's. Boat was commissioned in July of 2008, so a bit over 7 years life obtained from those two. Hope to get at least a year or more from the house side, as they have been managed carefully.Just data for those interested,Sams/v LONGHAWKI B43…See More

"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…"
My Oday is an '84 Oday 30. It does have one or two white caps on the cabin overhead, but it also has an interior handrail that is mounted on black rubber blocks. I removed a bung from one of the interior handrails and…"
It depends. What model O'Day are we speaking about? Who put the rails on in the first place? Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are? If yes, the rails are…"
