What an awful time you are going through! I'll bet you are best friends with Percoset!
Have you met my friends Barbara Ann and Harry on Our Dream. They have a big, not friendly German shepherd. I know them from working the Annapolis Boat Show for many years together. They keep trying to get me to drive up to Vero to see them. If I do, I'll let you know. I've been such a slug this winter with the cold weather, am behind on boat chores. Hey, thanks for the daisies! Sure brightens up my day...
Kidney stone..ouch...went through that a few years ago.....you know you're in trouble when you over hear the Doc tell the nurse.."give her all the morphine she wants". They say it's like passing a starfish thru a drinking straw...agree. They had to go "get" mine..double ouch. Went and visited my boat, RI yesterday...was 73 at one point inland, but very windy at the shoreline. Not complaining..lol Hope all is well & not in pain anymore. Hey we could start a group here.. Sailors & kidney stones!
I have just stumbled across your info: the Newport Jazz Festival probably caught my eye. I lived in RI for 14 years, and eventually ended up in St. Thomas, which is now my primary home. Came here as a liveaboard in 1989. I return to Cape Cod every summer, just left on July 5! Fleeing the rain and cold. We are a little out of sync on the schedule. I enjoy the Caribbean, the liveaboard lifestyle (although I am on land now). Favorite islands include Antigua for general sailing and Classics regatta.
You sound as if you are a very thought full person .. and that is not a typo!!. It would be interesting to hear back from you, I happen to be 5'4" etc. I am a reader, rather than movies, abhor the mall and shoe collections and have more interest in spending my money on fun as I have enough worldly goods, with the exception of no sailboat.
Enjoy the Jazz and all that RI has to offer. If it never got below 65F I would not have left in 1988,,
look forward to hearing from you when you get a chance,
Hi Dalton. Sounds like you're really enjoying yourself! We have a women's race this Saturday I'm really looking forward to. Your regatta sounds very exciting! We also have our annual Mermaid Regatta coming up for all the ladies. Lots of fun last year. Just got back from hiking and camping in the Colorado mountains. Fun! I climbed 13,600 ft peak. First time there was hail, snow, and wind. Who would have thought hail in August!?

Welcome back to the USA,Dalton. If you are in the Boston area at some point, give me an email, I would be glad to show you a little of Boston. I have been here for 7 years now onboard a pearson 424, so I kinda know the town alittle. Also have sail up the coast of Maine quite a bit.
Hi! Welcome home! Beautiful this weekend, but chilly. I'm currently trying to heal a boat bite. Bruised ribcage last monday. Was suppose to sail this weekend and have renaming ceremony for my boat today. Cancelled till I'm better. Sitting at home watching Deadliest Catch for the "fix"..lol. Bored, bummed and twizzled in massachusetts :-( Hope to meet you soon! Terri
Welcome Home Dalton & hope you really enjoy your summer exploring the N.E. area. If one day you make your way up to the 1'000 Islands area, I would be pleased to be your host/guide. Currently single-hand my 27 ft sloop on L. Ontario having spent many years at the west end of the lake out of Toronto. A few years ago moved myself & boat down to the eastern end, considered by some to be the best freshwater sailing in the world. I hope to sell this boat and am actively searching for a more liveaboard to take me south for a few years. Have done some sailing in the Bahamas & BVIs, looking forward to exploring much more! Dianne
Yes, I went to CSM, chem engineering. But I'm in the environmental compliance world now. Doesn't pay well but I more or less sleep better at night. I don't live-aboard yet. Monterey Harbor's wait list is 25 years at least. Since I can't get a boat loan since I don't own a house or anything big, I'm saving for a boat. So I'll be looking at buying in the next year or so. Trying to hone my sailing skills, learn all the lingo, and find out all I can about what kind of a boat is best for bluewater cruising, not just a pocket cruiser. Who better to ask than people like you who are already doing it. I've been spending time racing on the Wed night beer cans but haven't done alot of cruising. I took my classes through BareBoat Charter but still think I'm need more teaching. But I'm getting more confident as time goes on.............
What kind of boat is Quietly? Well, I read your profile and it's interesting. I went to college in Golden CO, spent some time in Louisiana (enough time), and am on the west coast ready to sail eastward. Spent 7 years working in the South Pacific and relaly want to visit Bali.
Wow, thanks for all the great information! I really appreciate it. Would those boat choices also be good for sailing down the west coast and over to Uruguay (Central/South America)? Does the lower mast really help?
Good to hear from you. I have heard about some of the changes down in the Caribbean - sorry to hear about most of them. I'm glad to hear there are a few people still down there that I knew, but I know it's a whole new crew out there.
Hi Dalton! Nope, wasn't in Antigua racing. Still figuring out sailing....only position I excel at in racing is railmeat, line coiler and sewer! LOL Newport is lovely in the summer and some of the best sailing here. Although you wouldn't want to be here today..pouring out..but had a wonderful sleep on the boat. Take care, Fair winds! Terri P.S. Sorry, 5'3...don't wear heels on the boat :-)
"Wayne, yes I'm still out here. She's looking good and you'll love her. The 38.1 is a perfect size for 2 people with occasional guest (s). Plus she's a sweet sailing boat. I'll attach a short video of one I was delivering…"
"Sam, I am just in the process of replacing both of my eyebrow windows. I have the new ones from Beneteau and am talking with dealer in Florida re Bebeteaus advice. It would be helpful to talk to you about your experience. I have never seen…"
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
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
