Hey Bill, Blowing to hard for sailing in Lake Ontario at the moment! :-) Will be studying in  P.V. Mex this winter- hoping to get some quality sailing time in on the Bay!

Hi Bill, It's a Mustang. Pricey but given all the other gadgets and gizmos on a boat, my most valuable item. If you search around a bit, you may see a promotion.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the nice words about my books. I wish I knew more writers who write about boats and the sea. I know of Sam Llewellyn, Paul Garrison, Linda Greenlaw, Justin Scott (Shipkiller).... I think that's about it. Maybe I'd include Randy Wayne White (the early ones) on that list.

I'm working on the new book. More sailing than ever.

Hi Bill.
Boy, I wish Circe were mine. She is a beautiful boat. No, she belongs to a fellow I met in the Abacos last summer. She is a Bristol. I don't remember the exact length - either a 40 or a 42. Her owner sails her singlehanded and I loved the story about him putting up his spinnaker alone while sailing out the Whale Cay Passage.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the kind words about the books. I'm working on a new stand alone sailing thriller, but not done yet.

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"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 Mike"
