    I need a new iPad. Which one has real gps?

    Yes you need a cellular model No you do not have to activate it, just have the call chip An external GPS violates the KISS principle. Plus if you need to spend money to buy the GPS, FFS- get the cell iPad. Ponder a NMEA- WiFi bridge for the boat. It will stream depth, wind, etc in a NMEA0183 data stream that Navionica, etc can use. If you have a GPS on the boat, it will stream location also. THEN you will not need a GPS enabled device

    While doing a delivery down the coast, we were off the Cape when SpaceX went up. A real bucket list event.... Enjoy the pics

    SpaceX Crewed Dragon Launch

    Anyone have update on launch time? Is it 3:15pm or as another post indicates 7:15pm. Doing delivery down the coast and ocean is “closed” off the coast of the cape during launch. Would like to confirm as we should arrive there 9pm. EDIT. Found it on Google 7:27pm

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    @SloopJonB Seeking a KISS operating solution— If the black/dark blue line had 5-6’ of shock cord between the block and the cleat, could you leave the Lin cleated and simply pull it down and snap it back when needed?

    Why not the reefing hooks at the gooseneck?

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    @Ajax yes love the AC, in FLA you really need it. Makes working on the boat much more comfortable. Also makes it the ultimate man cave. "Yes dear, you are right darling. Oh, did I mention that I have to go down to the boat to change the nav light fluid." The stripe thing cuts two ways. First, it brightens the cabin and adds color. The second is that it can be seen as too busy and not calming for those prone to seasickness. I will likely make the vet berth cushions solid for that reason. Now that I understand how to do it, I can change it for a $2-300, if I so desire.

    Have a different project for you during your hibernation-- recover the cushions! With COVID, my deliveries are down so I took up sewing. Total budget was about $600 with new foam for port side seats and backs, PVC backboard for lower seats, used the backerboard material to install doors on the port side lockers behind the seats, recovered helm seat and starboard settee. Will finish the rest when I get back from upcoming delivery.

    3 legs makes perfect sense for that size boom. My ego has long caused me to avoid jacks for the manly art of going forward to flake the sail while using my foot to control the halyard. BUT as I near 66, it may be time. Photos of how yours is rigged and mounting locations would be appreciated.
