    It seem that there has been red tide more often than not when we are down visiting my in-laws recently. Is it just our timing or has this been occurring that frequently?

    Don't forget that Sandy was not technically a hurricane when it hit NJ/NY and look at the damage it did.

    Towing a 13' Whaler...

    We used to tow our 13' whaler behind our then 37 foot sailboat for Summer cruise out to Block Island and back with points in between. We needed it for a family of six. We set up bridle between the two stern cleats, but otherwise set up as you have suggested. It definitely impacted the speed, and fuel consumption when not under sail, as compared to the Avon used previously, but all in all was worth it for the minor inconvenience it caused in towing.

    LONQR

    From Wikipedia. Sounds awesome! The shooter's sandwich is a steak sandwich prepared with cooked steak and mushrooms, salt and pepper that is placed inside a hollowed-out long loaf of bread and then weighed down. It originated in England from the Edwardian era, and is similar to the Beef Wellington.

    Her sister is Rooney Mara. As in the Pittsburgh Steeler Rooneys to whom the Mara's are related. Not a bad family to be born into.
