    Blind Faith

    Love Pandora and Dave Mason one of my Go-To "stations" Pulls in all kinds of live performances and permutations of He and other artists of that era that I would not otherwise hear. Subscribe to avoid dum-ass commercials ruining my mo-jo.

    And they're off again...

    Three dogs aboard a 36' boat? Forget the input...think about the outputs. Gross.

    Rudder refurb and associated troubles...

    No current rudder problems but learned much from this. I am impressed, but not surprised, by the level of expertise on this site. Your a goodun' JGB.

    SAILBOAT 35' 1983 CHEOY LEE (PERRY) 35

    Ah damn. Wish I was wrong. When I bought Corsair she was a Dock Queen and had chafing where the fenders lay. In spite of it being Awlgripped and near impossible to fair in repairs, the yard did a pretty good job. Good luck.

    SAILBOAT 35' 1983 CHEOY LEE (PERRY) 35

    I was told that if the hull is painted with Awlgrip, do not shrinkwrap over it. Awlgrip does not like trapped moisture. Pretty boat. My classic plastic in white is pretty, but in flag blue she is really pretty. Good luck!

    Check Your BoatUS Policy.

    Yes the WoD endorsement reads that but again I was told it is only available (maybe My state, Massachusetts, is the other state in which the waiver is not approved?) on boats less than 10 years old... My wife is having her total ankle replacement done again (5 years later) because the part used is faulty. I feel your pain (at least as much as a caretaker/bystander can).

    Check Your BoatUS Policy.

    That's what my new carrier is. See earlier post on its attributes.

    Check Your BoatUS Policy.

    I would ask about the Waiver of Depreciation again...I was told that it only applies to boats less than ten years old. Sometimes the phone reps are just not knowledgeable enough to answer the question accurately. Ask for their supervisor.

    Stick Built versus Pan Built

    Pan built also restricts access to the boat's nether regions as well..

    Random movie thread

    OK..."Pull My Daisy" by "G-String Productions". You are one funny guy. Grew up on Long Island...shoulda met then. Would have been fun.

    "I'd rather sail than varnish!", who says that?

    Lovely boat and happily surprised at how well she dialed up even with a furling main and centerboard. Looking forward to Restive...

    "I'd rather sail than varnish!", who says that?

    I believe that was the Concordia which sank right outside of Nantucket on the jetty a few years back.
  13. My first "Charge" as a 17 year old was a 1975 Dufour 28. Different boat but same era. Well built and ergonomics ahead of its time. Love those Dufours of that generation. Should serve you well assuming it holds no surprises.

    F@#%ing Mice in car anarchy.

    My stupid mice would not be trapped by the fancy humane traps, so I had to revert to the sticky pads...which I hate. But they work. Peanut butter and off you go.

    I had a 1978 Fiat Spyder that I purchased for $200 (it was stolen and was run into a salt water marsh). Ran like a top and had the most fun per dollar of any of my 38 cars. Had it for two years before the other tranny mount dropped (first one was fixed by spanning the hole in the floor plan with a screwdriver and wired up the mount to it). Purchased another...a 1980. It too ran like a top. Two levers and the top goes down (in contrast to the english origami I was used to) and a five speed. Great cars.
