Hi. Just a quick comment to share some info. Since your love for island music, I was wondering if you've heard of Mishka and Xavier Rudd. Two of my new favourites. You might enjoy them too - give them a listen on youtube. Cheers for now, from London

Ahoy Tim, Sad news about Hilda...she's no longer sailing with us(she and her sister passed away 2 years ago). Interesting you mentioned the Brig Niagara, as home port is where we sail from(Erie, Pa.). We get to see a lot of her durning the spring and summer.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
