    Dobroth MORC 30

    Dobroth showed up at a Block Island Race week one year, on one of those crazy big cruising motorcycles with the giant windshield and a cranking stereo. Bike was a very dorky tan/ brown color. He drove around the island for the week looking like a total nerd. nice guy but super dorky.

    Buying a boat without a broker?

    Without a survey you are not going to get insurance on a boat of that age. PM me with questions.

    Check Your BoatUS Policy.

    Boat US was a employee owned managing agent, policy was underwritten by CNA. Many people think they are/were part of the boaters lobbying/advocacy group, which all they share is a name; they are not. The insurance side sold itself a number of years back. Berkshire Hathaway bought Boat US and learned the business while starting a yacht/boat insurance co. That was Seaworthy insurance, they changed to Geico Marine Insurance co to capitalize on the marketing. Once that company was up and running they replaced CNA as the carrier. They are 100% out for themselves. I am a broker and specialize in boats and yachts, if you want you can send me a PM and I can answer any questions or help you find coverage. Thanks, Tom Carroll

    Manhasset Fall Series

    A bunch of years ago, when American was the smaller regatta and NYYC used to have involvement, American came to MBYC to try and get them to cohost it when NYYC got out. MBYC did not go for it, I wish they did now! I wonder if the regatta was located at a more easterly club if that would make a difference.

    Manhasset Fall Series

    Ras! I think most people don't come because its too late for them, to far for them. It sucks but it is what it is. Hard to make people come. I can make first weekend, but will be there for the distance race on Atafranksass.
  11. Not the pole itself. This generation of boat had to carry a huge man overboard pole and this is where it was stored.

    Hammer started this thread.
  13. S&S 34 or the Sigma 36. Maybe the early Swan 35,
  14. Woodpussy! they used to have a ton of those in my harbor on long island. Phillip Rhodes designed cat boats. My uncle is on the championship trophy from WAY back in the day.
  15. The Pumpkinseed- sailed on Long Pond Mass, don't think anywhere else. The Atlantic is sailed on long island Sound and Maine and has close to 100 boats racing so I don't think it counts.
