    At the J/80 East Coast Champs last year the RC decided to start a race in under 5 knots, and abandoned on the last leg. Not a big deal, right? Except that they were planning on abandoning BEFORE they even started.

    Thanks for all the info! I think we're gonna pick a solid weather window and go to Bermuda and then down.

    Friend of mine is moving from New London to San Juan, PR this summer for work, and need to figure out how to get his Beneteau first 38 down there. The move will happen between mid-May to early August, wondering if anyone has input on jumping off spots or general ideas on how to do the trip... Definitely not afraid of doing it all in one go, and we have the skills and equipment to do so, but jumping down the coast before making the move east might be easier? Appreciate any input. Thanks!

    Sounds like Green Marine is no more. Anyone have details?

    Hazards to Navigation Galveston Bay

    Call the Coast Guard and tell them. They can investigate, look at it with a side-scan sonar, and decide whether or not it needs to get removed and/or marked. Try Sector Houston Galveston first.

    I agree. And with water heaters, expensive long life ones are functionally identical to cheapo shorter life ones but with more anodes. Replace your anode in the cheap one every few years and it will outlast the expensive one. But AC is something else. The money you invest in a high efficiency unit will have you hit payback four times faster than a furnace ... electric isn't cheap per BTU like gas, you'll save with efficient cooling and then you save again because a more efficient unit tends to lasts longer, and then you save again because the AC doesn't need to remove as much of its own waste heat. Good to know about the water heater. There's no central AC in the house, so we don't have to worry about that. Most places up there don't have it
