    US Toboggan Nationals!

    We had a blast in the sixties. A big toboggan, eight kids and a Malamute. The dog would ride second last on the sled wearing his pulling harness. The look on peoples faces was priceless when we went down the hill with that 100 pound puppy. At the bottom we would load the little kids on the sled, hook up the traces and watch him race up the hill. He did the hard work but I swear he had as much fun as we did. I miss Cal.

    shipping sport boat SF to NY

    If you do not have the time to do it yourself than you must be earning enough to pay a genuine professional.

    Flying with Inflatables

    Delta did not allow CO2 last time I flew with them. They got mad when I pointed out that each seat life jacket and the life raft in the ceiling had CO2 cylinders. Call ahead. Good luck

    removing stubborn nuts....

    When you are tired of fooling around, get a cobalt drill bit about the same diameter as the bolt. Drill into the nut at slow RPM using cheap oil to lubricate the drill bit. When you get halfway thru stop, remove the drill bit and hit the motherfucker with a cold chisel. Then enjoy that beer. Who cares if that rust bolt survives,

    Think cruising not racing. It is more genteel.

    Towing or Towed? Sail & Powerboat in ICW/Atlantic?

    Consider side towing the powerboat with the sailboat. One person could handle it underway. Should be fine in protected waters at moderate speed (you are using the sailboat).
