Hi Terri,

Great to hear back from you. It's never too cold to sail (so the saying goes)! Last week was a bit cool and knowing it will eventually warm up I am waiting until Thursday to sail again. Aren't you scheduled for another island cruise sometime soon? I am jelous! If ever in Florida, let me know and we'll go sailing.

Cheers,

Manolo

"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
