About Me:
update- sold my cal jan 2010 moved to vista to be a homeowner. 18 mo without a boat and i couldn't stand it. i just bought a lancer 25ft and can sail again!! ps walk in closets are over rated
am a traveling nurse, i work close to home for now. i live on my cal 34 in redondo beach. the best thing about living on my boat is i can untie it and go out whenever i am in the mood. i don't have to plan and pack up, everything i'll need is on the boat already! i work 3 days/week 12 hr days so last week when i had 4 off in a row i took off and went over to catalina for 2 days by myself. its always an adventure, its very rare that i have left my slip and nothing has gone wrong while i'm out, usually an engine problem, a torn sail, a headsail that i can't drop in too much wind, a windlass that wont work when the anchor has been dropped already, etc. etc. i get an adrenaline rush from getting out of a problem situation. most would call my experiences disasters but i call them adventures!
Current location:
home in redondo beach,ca
Destinations visited:
i often go to marina del rey, cabrillo, catalina, san diego, newport beach, dana point, i have stayed in all of the harbors from mdr to san diego overnight a few times. its always the most exciting pulling in to a new harbor and looking for your gust slip in a marina your not familiar with, {in the dark is even more of a thrill, one i try to avoid now} last oct i went to mexico, my 27 yr old son joined me for 11 days and that story is a whole other book we lost power, tore both sails, only a solar panel to charge batteries, very little sun, lots of rain and a hard time heading north
Looking to:
someday, somehow take off and sail away! i guess i might need to find a partner, i probably need a better equipped boat, enough money to survive,....actually all that i do have in preparation for my dream is spirit!

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

B43 Inverter Buzzing/humming noise

Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve.
