Hi everyone, My husband and I use to sail, but he past away a few months ago. Now I'm starting to get back out there with some of our old friends. I have a 1977 45' Morgan Classic sailboat that my husband bought a few years ago. She's an oldie but a goodie. I found this site hoping to meet some new friends along life's journey.
We've been all over.
This summer I'm looking to sail down to FL along the Atlantic.

"Yep, I too have snapped a couple of the clam shell drain covers off. I have a couple of spares, but may or may not replace this time. The slack didn't seem to be the ultimate cause. Seems that wind/tide shifts and wake surge would cause the…"
"Sam, we are the essentially the same. Using the same mantus bridle as you. Quick question to you and any others using a bridle. We had the bridle rubbing the sides of the bow in a recent storm and it ended up snapping off the…"
"On Longhawk we use a Rocna 20KG. I changed out the chain gypsy when new to one that handles 5/16 high Test chain. Then I went with 175 ft of 5/16 HT chain tailed with 200 ft of three strand.(overkill, but I had the rode as supplied new).
