    A couple of quick things- 1. #58 is in and registered for Key Largo #1 (Key Largo #2 is a 50/50 ) 2. The GF and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Key Largo last year. Although more expensive then Bayside, she was very happy there while we sailed. Had a pool and hot tub. Also a pretty good restaurant across the parking lot, and minimal RT 1 traffic noise. We are booked in there again. 3. Will be there Tues PM, set up and hopefully sail a bit on Wed, and then hopefully a clinic on Thursday. 4. Martin-with all your practicing, I think you will kick my ass this year!!! Barry (#58)
  6. The scene in the cave, eating a bat (which needed more garlic and the hostages thinking they were DINNER) was perfect!!!!!

    Craigslist Finds

    I don't think there ever was a Franklin 505. From the pictures, I am thinking either a Parker or Rondar. A picture of the transom would help solve the puzzle, as well as the launcher. I had a 1968 Parker (US3194) and a 1973 (or maybe 74?) Parker (US4857) as well. The silver anodized Proctor mast makes me think (if it is original to the boat) that the boat may be 1973 or later. Proctor's earlier masts were gold anodized. If it is complete, it would be a fine lake boat.

    505 sails

    I probably have all you need, and then some, mostly North's from the late 90's all in very good to better condition-biggest problem is they are in Connecticut. PM me if interested, I will be back there in a week. Barry

    Capri 14.2 Roof Racks For Honda Si

    I am really bummed. After I installed the Volvo Penta engine with the folding prop, the Capri is now overrated for my roof racks. How am I going to go to the Olympics if I can't get the boat to the trials??

    505 Acquired

    I had 2 Parkers , 1968 and 1973. As I remember, the decks were really 6 pieces, although it was very hard to see the seam due to their craftsmanship. This made it much easier to get the compound curves needed. I think Mark Lindsay did the same thing (I had 3 of those). Hope this makes it easier for you.
