Profile Information

Profile Type:
Spring City, TN
About Me:
I purchased a 30 yo Helms 24 about 18 months ago and have spent untold hours getting it back in shape. My girlfriend Lynne and I are looking forward to trailering it to the FLA east coast and hopefully sailing it to the Bahamas in March. I taught basic sailing in 1974, but have been out of sailing until now. I feel like a dinosaur getting up to date on all the new hi-tech navigation wizardry. I would be interested in traveling with a group of cruisers who are going to the Bahamas in the late March time frame.
Current location:
Watts Bar Lake, Spring City TN
Destinations visited:
Local areas on the lake between Watts Bar Dam and areas north. I have also sailed in the distant past in Annapolis, St Croix, Puerto Rico, and San Diego when I was in the Navy. I used rental boats from the military welfare and recreation shops when I could get liberty from the ship.
Looking to:
Trailer my boat to Patrick AFB, Canaveral, FL, then sail down the ICW to W Palm Beach. If all goes well, we'll sail out the inlet from Peanut Island park and then sail in the Bahamas and Abacos for a couple weeks in the late March-April 2009 time frame.

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
