Hey YACHTASEA! Thanks for your comment. As you were typing it we were probably in the delivery room meeting our baby girl. Sorry we couldn't be at Newport Marina to catch your lines!!!! :)

Thought of you yesterday! We went to Michael Beans' show at Marina Cay and after the conch blowing contest we have a newfound respect for Christiopher Jr. Congratulations! Hope you have a long and safe sailing season this year!

We just learned of your donation on Sailforwater.com. THANK YOU SO MUCH! It's thanks to contributions like yours that (one day) our dream of building a well will become a reality. Thanks for helping us make our dream come true!

Thanks for the recommendations! We'll miss the regatta but will try to make a Full Moon Party!

Hey Yachtaseas! The fish in that picture is a mahimahi. Beautiful, delicious and a big fighter as well! Wishing you warmer temperatures and an early launch, -andrea & franc

Glad you enjoyed the pics! We have so many pics that we could share that it might overload the site ....*LOL* Happy Sailing!

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
