Hi there,
We met you in Oyster Bay Long island sound. Did you find anymore cruising kids yet? We have just arrived in Key West and are heading to St Pete for the show then maybe the Caribbean. Hope to see you there. P.S let us know before you leave the US and we'll pass in NZ info of reaching Opua BOI and Cam's Grandad's moorings etc.

Ahoy! My cousins finally came sailing with us. You have to check out the videos...1-Not so scary after all (you first have to watch sometimes it gets scary) and 2-Sailing with the Weinberger's.

I hope you are having a blast in NE. Can't wait to catch up in NYC.

Enjoy!

Hey not sure if you saw it. There is a great recipe for Lobster in the Chefs At Sea group.

Maine must be breath-taking this time of year. I am sure you are all having a blast!

The last time we were in Maine we went out on a beautiful wooden day sailor. It was so tranquil. At least during the day. In the evening, we ended up at a house party with Chris O'Donnell. How funny is that. I thought, hmmm that guy looks familiar! lol

I am so happy that you all joined! PS-I took your advice and purchased the vacuum and the reynolds bags. Thank you so much for the recommendation.

How was your trip to Maine?

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"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"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"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…"
