OMG

Isn't it funny how once you learn something it becomes integrated into your life? Just a few days ago I became acqainted with the text message phrase "OMG." As luck would have I proceeded to lose $800 in cash that was contained in one of those little bank envelopes along with my driver's license and ATM card. Having just left the bank enroute to register SPRAY, then pay a friend for the work he did on her, I felt good that I had the money to pay off these little ditties..

Confused again

Here I am confused again. I was grazing my blog profile and other pages I am not always sure how I navigate to. None the less, a pop up box asked if I wanted to share my blog post on Face Book. Though I have two Face Book accounts, one under my name and the other under a boat I race (Fast Lane), neither are up to date.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
