It has been said if you make enough money to require a payment to Uncle Sam, then you are in good shape. Put the good with enough and you have the name of the boat I just purchased:  Good Enough. Yipe, I am the proud owner of a Marples 35 wood/epoxy constant camber tri..... After a successful sail home from the Rio Dulce, she'll be renamed SPRAY (same as my Corsair was named).

SPRAY 3 represents my admiration for Joshua Slocum, the love of my husband who needed a mathematical enumeration (3, as in cubed) which represents: 3 hulls, 3 of my favorite type boats owned (Hobies, Supercats, and Corsair 28), my 3 loves (Danny, my dad and everyone else).

Not much else to say, I'm off to Guatemala with Captain Kirk, his son and my girlfriend Karen. Pray the next wave of tropical depressions abate until we're safely home. Current float plan is to leave Rio Dulce on Saturday, July 8 and head north around the west side of Cuba then north east with a final run up the east coast of Florida, entering at Ft. Pierce for the last day's sail to our home dock in Palm Bay, Florida. Despite the fact that another friend Maryanne refers to the accomodations as resembling the SS Minnow, let's hope this is not a 3 hour tour.

Kitchen cabinet pegs loose!

We have a beneteau 40 2009, in the kitchen cupboard there are pegs in one cupboard to organize dishes and plates etc.Strangely the pegs are very loose, don't fit the holes well so don't really stay put to keep the dishes in place.Can other owners say if their pegs are also very loose? Are they meant to be glued/sikaflexed in place?What other solutions have been tried to get them to stay put?…See More

Bow thruster goes off

I am experiencing a problem with my bow thruster on my Beneteau 43. There was a post earlier on with the same title posted by Frank but there is not the way it had been sorted. I have noticed that my bowthruster works ok on idle but then as I increase the revs the indicator lamp in the button of the control unit starts flicking and then it switches off. I have fitted brand new batteries and had a couple of attempts by technicians to fix this at quite an expense without positive results. I am…See More
