Help the campaign break 100,000 signatures 

Dear friends, 
As you all know, I am working to assemble a race from Key West to Cuba scheduled for mid November 2010.
You can assist by doing the following: I want to ask you and all your friends to add your voice to the campaign urging U.S. leaders to give all Americans the freedom to travel to Cuba. Since launching the campaign in May, more than 95,000 people have visited to sign the petition.

Never before in the 50 year history of the U.S. ban on travel to Cuba has there been such an upwelling of popular support for change. 

But the challenge ahead remains significant. If we can break the 100,000 mark we will send a powerful message to U.S. leaders that cannot be ignored. We need your help to help reach 100,000 signatures. 

Please visit our easy-to-use "tell-a-friend" page today and encourage at least 3 of your friends and family to sign the petition 

To date 180 Congressmen and 33 Senators have sponsored the bipartisan Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act, which seeks to open up travel to Cuba for all U.S. citizens. 

Help get the message out to your friends and family. Remind them Cuba is the only country in the world Americans are not allowed to visit. 

The opportunity to end the ban hangs in the balance. Seize the moment. 

Visit our easy-to-use "tell-a-friend" page today and urge your friends and family to add their voice to the campaign 

Or simply forward this e-mail with a brief endorsement. 

Thank you for your support. 

Barney, Brian, Mark, Jim, Arti, Dominic, Ramya, Adam, Tom, Marie, Joseph, Melissa, Daniel, Gary, Paul, Sam and the rest of the campaign

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
