I first started sailing on Biscayne Bay in the mid-80s. Unfortunately, I've never had sufficient continuous water time to be "expert", but I'm good crew and LOVE to sail! I learned to sail by racing with WYRA, but have become more of a cruiser - just enjoy being on the water, or messing around boats.
I've been sailing in the Florida Keys, Biscayne Bay, Bahamas, BVIs.
sail locally, learn to dock... ( in all my sailing I've nver had the helm to dock), and always learn and enjoy...
I've enjoyed chartering in the BVI's twice and would love to hook up with some people for some weekend or vacation sailing.
Hi Pam: sent you a newsy, more private email to the bellsouth address I had but it came back to me. If you still have my address let me know & I will send it again. Haven't yet figured out how to send private messages on SeaKnots....any suggestions? DJ
Hi there, on the contrary, I still tell people what a great trip it was. I'm especially fond of telling them that it was the women that were the sailors, while the 2 guys were along with the gals.. I just seem to get caught up in work, taking care of my mom, who is now 89, and life. I am sorry, but I don't think I got the email. I've popped on the yahoo scene a few times, but it seems if you don't keep on it, its hard to follow the track. how is everyone? any more trips planned? Are any of the others on here?
Hello Pam: see your name pop up from time to time. Following our week in the BVIs in 07, did send you an email at Xmasl....we all keep in touch but you seem to have fallen off the radar.....guess you didn't like us???? All the best....DJ
I assume this is pseudo private email. Thanks for your email or comment. Rock Hall is in or on the eastern shore of Maryland. Unfortunately I will be in Phila this winter instead of being in the Bahamas or points south as any intelligent person would seek. It isn't that I don't know better, but circumstances dictate. Anyway south is in my future. You look interesting. I have hopes of visiting Florida this winter. Let's try to hook up then; I'll keep you posted.
"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…"
