Yes I would be interested in sailing with you.  What kind of boat do you have?  I didnt get much sailing in this year.  I race with friends but the skipper had a heart attach in April and put him out of commission for most of the season.

Hey RD,
Good to hear about other Bay sailors. My boat is a Van de Stadt design similar to the Victory 40 that was built in Holland and Britain in the mid 70's to mid 80's. Van de Stadt also sold plans and my boat was built in S. Africa in the mid 70's. She was sailed by her owner over to Brazil and then on to England and the Carib..I am not sure of the actual routing but base my belief on the charts that where on board when I bought her. She was lying, neglected, in a yard between Balt. and Annapolis I bought her from a charity org that acquired her from the estate of her last owner. I think he was her second or third. She was documented in Great Britain for a time as well as with the US Coast Guard. There is a web site devoted to these boats and others in the lineage.

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
