Hi Sal... Been sailing that 272LE yet? There's a whole great big world of water out there waiting for you to explore. And don't forget about the owners' rOnDAYvous in Long Island this July. If you can't sail down, consider driving down and getting some sailing time on other people's boats.

Hey lady, long time no... nothing! I hope the winter's been treating you OK up there in the great white north. Only 5 more weeks till spring, and sailing season can't be far behind. If you're on Facebook, look me up, and sign up for the O'day Sailboat Owners group on FB. This way you'll be assured of staying in the know as far as big O'day happenings like the 2009 rOnDAYvous. Catch ya soon.

Hi Sal... Boat still in the water? Mine's awaiting haulout (boo-hoo!). Let's hope for a quick, mild winter. And stay tuned for info on the 2009 O'day owners rOnDAYvous.

Sally, I'm a relatively novice cruiser myself. My recommendation is to not sail it alone...take along a crew member, it will be so much more fun and safer too!

Hi Lola! I so admire you for tackling those seas! The next time around should seem easy, no? I haven't been out by myself yet as I'd hoped...a combination of selling-my-house issues, divorce stuff and problems with my boat's engine. I have enjoyed using her as a get-away place in her berth. So everything's forward movement and good.....just not sailed by myself...YET!

Hey Sally have you gone out yet? I did but it was in 6 foot seas and terrifying....went w a seasoned sailor.

Ahoy Sally,
I went to college in New Hampshire in the White Mountsins. Now I prefer the Caribbean. I am a US Sailing Certified Instructor through Coastal Passage Making and Navigation. I taught at the Offshore Sailing School out of Tortola in the BVI and am moving to Puerto Rico in a year or so. You must have a short season in NEw Hampshire. I have been in San Francisco Bay for many many years and it is very cold hear in the fog in the summer.
Fair winds and smiles and smiles to go.....

Anything new with selling your house? Getting your boat (and yourself) out on the water? Hopefully the summer has been treating you really well.

Hi Sally... The exact dates for the 2009 rOnDAYvous have not yet been set (neither has the location), but I feel safe in saying that it will be one of the two mid-July weekends. In other words, either the weekend after the 4th of July (the 10th through 12th) or the following one. If you're willing to make it the first item on your 2009, I'll make sure that you're the very first person I share the news with. Oh, and good luck with the house sale.

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
