Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well.

I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures

HiYa Pete,

Are you doing any sailing up there this time of the year?  We have a cold spell at the moment, but hope to get the boat up this month...Maybe a Christmas sail with friends.

Let me hear from you..Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

PS Still btw practicing my knots, thanks to you.

Hi Pete,

My boat is all repaired and new bottom paint.

Finally, I'm ready to continue my sailing skills...learning all the time.

Where have you sailed lately?

Have a great summer.

Hi,

Sorry about not getting back sooner.........no it is a Horstman 46, but it does have a cross designed keel and NO dagger boards. Terry

Hey Pete, thanks for the contact...now that your season is coming to an end, why don't you and your wife pick me up on my Vacation to Myrtle Beach offer, as seen in the female Sailors Group? I can put you up in my home.. our Season is all year here. Has been raining a lot lately. You can follow my weather on my page.

I need working the sails instruction.

Wow, time flies. Sorry I haven't checked in with SeaKnots lately. Been super busy with racing & training. Another big project was the rebuilding of our Farr 30 (Mumm 30) chainplates. Seems Carol Marine, the builder of most of the Farr 30's, read the design drawings wrong and drilled the access hole for the chainplates on the wrong side of the box frame thus weakening the structure. I've modified the chainplate with a 20 hr, $200 material repair that I suspect most Farr 30's will need someday. The new chainplate structure worked perfectly with 25 knots true wind racing this weekend.

The verdict is in, Bismark Dinius found not guilty in the absurd false accusation murder case of the fatal boating crash that caused the death of Lynn Thorton due to neglegent operation of a high speed powerboat by Russel Purdock.

I'll be offline for about 6 weeks while on cruise with Zaraffa.

Then the Governor's Cup (MD), then a JR Sailing Big Boat Clinic...
Make that 7 weeks...

Hi,

MANTA is an Ed Horstman 46 Trimaran, with a Cross designed keel, much better than the dagger boards, that did nothing.......Terry

Your family sounds like ours...teenage guitar playing son, family of skiers (eldest son becoming an instructor) ...no grandchildren yet, thank goodness. We have 4 kids 3 boys and a girl...the youngest is turning into a keen sailor and is keeping us young. We sail at the same club.You sure have plenty of experience...sounds like a great life. My keen fisherman hubby would love that...has to beat plumbing!!

Hey Pete, In the photo is my 15yo son on his Flying 11. Will put a pic up of my old tub...its a timber 125 (121/2 foot dinghy) Just finishing my second season and really getting the hang of it. Finished 1st on a handicap start last weekend, real thrill !! Have a 5 year plan to get a cruising yacht and leave Sydney behind....so I thought I had better learn to sail!!!!

Hi Pete. I graduated from boat school in 1972 and was not on the sailing time. I sailed recreationally at USNA and over the years since. No cruises nearly as long and adventuresome as your sailing resume. I know there is no excuse, sir, but my Navy and AT&T careers kept me moving, too busy and sometimes landlocked. I'm making up time now! All the best, Steve

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
