I was introduced to sailing about 10 yrs ago by some friends that had a sailboat and fell in love. They taught me everything there was to know about sailing. It made major changes as I re-evaluated my life and decided to go back to school for a profession that allowed me to give back...I am now an acupuncturist. The unfortunate part is while in school, I was not on the water.
Now that I am in my own practice, my fellow sailors have since sold the boat and separated. I am looking to make time to get back on the water.
My friends keep waiting to hear I am doing acupuncture from my sailboat in the islands somewhere...not a bad vision, if you ask me. :)

Hi Christine, my wife and have a home in Ormond Beach where we spend our winters. we sail our 47 foot Beneteau from NY in the Fall and back to NY in the Spring. We just sailed in from Bemini. our boat is docked in Palm Coast whenever we sail it to Florida. We would love to meet other Floridian sailors . Feel free to drop us a note

Being an acupuncturist on a sailboat in the islands is a outstanding idea and very do-able. We have a friend who is a chiropractor. He and his wife live aboard their sailboat fulltime... they go north along the east coast in the summer and south in the winter. He seems to do quite well...
"Thanks for all your comments my friends at Seaknots.
The halyard has been rerun without passing through the small stainless steel eye, as seen easily in the pic provided by Chris on 17th August.

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"
"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible.
I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"
"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning?????
(Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"
"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck
