Sailing in the Buff

Lou, for some unknown reason the group has mysteriously vanished.  It no longer appears on my page either.  Hope it wasn't something we said!

Hey John,

I did it!!! There now be some music on my page. So Check It Out. I know it is silly to get excited over something so minor, but I can't effect most of the major things in my world, so every success is something to celebrate.

Taking Cayo Mio for an overnight to Naples, Fl this weekend, and the repaired radar will be reinstalled on Monday. So that puts most major systems back on line. I still will have to be careful on longer passages offshore because I can't put the motor over 1500 rpm due to the slightly bent prop shaft. But she is a sailboat after all, and f the forecast is OK we an go.....

Have a great day and enjoy.

John,

Love the music and the pics!!!! I am so jealous....

Anyway, I finally figured out how to delete both applications that seems to be designed for music. So I can at least go to "My Page". So how do you down laod MP3 music after you enter "add music".

Thanks,

Capt Tom

John, thanks for getting back to me on the charter question. My initial posting was written at my desk in Iowa, but since then my wife and I (along w/ 2 other couples) have led 21 students to New Zealand. As a result, I'm writing to you now from a marina office in Auckland, where we're getting ready to do a 2 day charter. This is truly an amazing city for anyone who likes sailing.

Anyhow, my point (other than bragging about being in NZ) is that I'll have pretty irregular internet contact for the next couple of weeks, so if you respond, I'm not sure how long it will be till I can acknowledge.

Thanks again for your response.

John, I see that you sail out of Green Bay and based on your photos, it looks great. I've chartered several times in the southern half of the lake, out of Michigan City and enjoyed the experience a lot. Now, I'm looking to explore a bit farther north. Do you know of any charter opportunities out of the Green Bay area? I'd be driving in from Iowa, so the western shore of the lake is much easier to reach for me than the eastern.

If you have any thoughts, I sure be appreciative. Thanks, and hang in there till the warm weather returns.

I don't know I will have to ask, but i don't if they would know

I asked at my marina yesterday and they said they were the biggest O'Day dealer in the U.S. because they were only a few miles from them. and yes they did sell all the molds to Japan
At 9:55am on October 6, 2008, Scott said…
John, I will find out about the molds from my friend Carl Tripp. He owns a marinia where I keep my boat. The marina is only about 20 miles from the old factory. He sold O'Days for years and he was also a board member for O'Day

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
