Hearing what I want to hear, believing what I want to hear, that's me.
Giving encouragment, that's you!

Together we will surpass expectations....

In the meantime, I have another question:

How do you access internet? I have a lap top that I think I can get an adapter to plug into my battery control panel, but what kind of widget is required to get internet; is it called wi-fi??????????

With only a few weeks to go, another unbelievable part of me is that I'm going to be match racing all week-end instead of focusing on the trip. There's just too much to do in life. Although each day I check off another item on the 'todo' for a safe voyage list.

Thanks, Capt. Sass, -- or at least after this voyage I can renew my captain's license; something that lapsed about 19 years ago. That's another story....

Most modern laptops come with a built-in wi-fi card so getting on the internet is simply a matter of turning on the computer and launching you internet browser. Many marinas offer free wi-fi and many marinas have pay for use wi-fi provided by numerous vendors. it is possible to extend your computer's range of reception by using an external wi-fi card and antenna (available for about $50).

These links will lead you to what we use. We routinely pick up wifi from the boat at a mile away. Mount the antenna and run the lead to the Engenius. The Engenius then plugs into the USB port on your computer, run the software and viola, you have internet......if there's a signal available. Works really well. We're quite pleased with it. http://www.rvshop.com/search.asp?keyword=solenoid&search=GO

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
