    Looks like they didn't know that the main's luff rope/bolt rope is supposed to go into the mast groove. Understandable.

    Piper OD .. dayboat

    I hear you, Alan, but just keep thinking about how happy you will be sailing your refurbished Piper! I spent 7 months doing this with my H-Boat.

    A Form of Cruising...

    From your avatar, it looks like you remembered the sunscreen! Back in the 70s, my wife and I sailed an Alberg Typhoon on Biscayne Bay. Once we were sailing back to Miami from Pumpkin Key. The wind was SE. We put up the spinnaker, and sailed all the way to Dinner Key, 25 to 30 miles north, and hardly touched a line.

    What a sweet boat. Can't wait to see your progress.

    Ignorance and Ryan Zinke

    I appreciate this concern (I am a matter of months from the 70s), however, snowmobiles, in my admittedly limited knowledge, are loud and smelly, kind of like jet-skis, which I despise. If there are snowmobiles that are not obtrusive, and if their use was limited to people who really needed them, and to designated areas, I don't see the harm. At the same time, I believe it is vitally important to preserve our wilderness areas (they ain't makin' any new ones). All access should leave the softest possible footprint.

    1st post, need help understanding Westsail 32

    Amazing result. My question was actually tongue-in-cheek; I just didn't use the right font.

    So how did she react when you showed her pics of your new Piper? And when do we get to see them?
  9. Thanks, Monkey. That is a lovely tribute to a faithful friend, and your son. B.C.

    Just so there is no misunderstanding: "NOTE: The term "new" used above means that the referenced items, though purchased over a span of approximately 20 years have never been mounted on a boat nor used on a boat. Most item are still in original packaging where appropriate and are in "like new" condition."

    Is there a Westsail 32 one-design fleet anywhere?

    Armchair Retirement Plan

    Leeroy, that's a very attractive concept. Any idea where to go to investigate further?
