Hi Stuart - so does your Suky sail ?

Good morning Stuart,
What an encouraging response. I will let you know some dates I can come down to West Palm. It probably won't be too far in the distant future. I have a week off starting April 5 or so and may just sail down. I'll keep you posted. For today, I'm off to do a local rhum race onboard a lindenberg 28.
Sail safely,
Marlene

Hey Stuart,
Any relation to Scott? I'm interested in earning ASA certification as an instructor and am even more interested in sailing on a cruising cat while in the market for a blue water cruising multihull. Currently, I sail my F28 and previously had a Stiletto 23; not too mention too many lil' boats. Any suggestions or opportunities nearby. I live in Indialantic.

I enjoy reading your entry . . . Marlene

we are now anchored in Hobe Sound and planning on a slow trip to W Palm/Lake Worth tomorrow. Any anchoring suggestions with internet, and easy access for provisioning? We need to get to the Miami area for the boat show, but are considering a jaunt to Key West from Ft worth inlet.
My internet is slow with my cell phone as a modem.

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
