I remember the name but cain't picture it. I'll look for it the next time over. I should be doing some work on her this week. My son is home from Iraq for the month. He wants to go sailing so ....... I'm seriously thinking about cruising to Settlement Point, Bahamas. It will be my first .... oh boy!
We don't live on the boat at the moment but that may change in the near future. never know.
We are located about half way down on the south side of the first dock ..... look for "Neptunes Toy" .... can't miss it. How about you folks? I have probably seen you around there .... maybe even talked to you (???). What slip are you in?
Did you say you are getting a boat? Did it go through? I took out my boat w a seasoned sailor, in 6 ft seas unexpected...It was frightful for me to say the least. I have posted some new pictures. Be in touch, your friend ..Lola
So, Fay isn't going to hit Orlando but Endless Wind [ my sailboat] is getting hit by major storms in the Merritt Island area. Orlando is going to get the west side bands....which means rain....and we need it!
Charlotte - thanks for the comment. I am doing work on my Westerly Cirrus and plan to take the Dismal Swamp route the fall of 2009. I really look forward to the adventure.

I currently reside on my boat when not working 4 days each week. Hope to see you and your hubby out there some day. Carrie

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible.
I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"
"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning?????
(Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"
"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck
