Re: What Dinghy

These photos are super helpful! I've read almost every page of your blog, and everything you say about how these boats sail is true....

What Dinghy

Sick of taking of the motor and putting the dinghy on deck every time. Does anyone have a dinghy solution tha...

Re: Charging from Portable Generator

Ill check out zero to cruising. We are at the Merri-Mar yacht basin. Very reasonable price for a mooring, and a lovely new facility. We copied your graphic layout for our boat, w/ the name on the side of the stern, and logos on the bows. Ill try untwisting. Do the lines need to be certain lengths? S...

About 70nm. 6-8 foot swells and a stiff breeze made things sporty, including shooting the mouth of the Merrimack, with some big breakers. Most things worked. The reefing lines are a...

Raising motors, are I dumb.

New owner, working on getting the boat splashed.
