Mike, good to hear from you and glad you are enjoying the Bahamas. I really like the cruising there.

Longhawk is back at Lakewood in Clear Lake. After cruising from Feb 2013 , making it to the Bahamas and up the east coast only as far as the low country of Georgia, we brought the back back in 2014. We have had four grandkids in four years, so we have been actively engaged and enjoying them!

We took the boat over to the panhandle of Florida and spent several months in 2016, enjoying that area.

Boat is ageing well. Repaired about a dozen gel voids last year and replaced running rigging, reworked clutches, changed out hoses, water heater, and other normally expected wear items. Added Garhauer jib sheet control blocks that makes messing around with the jib much more convenient. Hardly ever use the Gennaker.

How is Mijoy?

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
