    Everyone is buying boats...

    Went in a power boat dealer in Newburg, MD today looking for a part. I was thinking he was going out of business, no he sold every boat he had, never before. The place was empty except for a happy owner and some mechanics. Has boats on back order.

    34-40 ft Cruiser Racer for 6-8 People

    Take a look at a Catalina 34, most seems to be shoal draft wing keel. There are deep draft that may put it n more of a race boat mode. Nice interior, huge head as most Catalina she a wide girl. The wing may get you in some places you would not go. Catalina brings a company still in business, a great owners community. The open transom begins in 90's is in your price range. Will treat you better than a similar Hunter.

    What a train wreck, the things you can not unsee. Waterline in the stern has to be above the boot stripe.

    Boats leaving USVI

    No problem Alex I think this more about the people that had no intention of leaving the VI's. They are now not welcome guest. As they describe getting supplies is always more difficult there, it just got harder. Now moving boats with limited crew and limited re guard for conditions. Using a calendar is never a recommended guide to moving a boat. More of the impact of the Chinese Bat Soup Flu Pandemic!

    Nothing wrong with an A4, killer deal. My bet the interior is just as nice.

    Rescued 25' sailboat 200 miles off NJ

    Amazing he made it that far, winds are one thing the other its dang cold, add wet. Tough, crazy SOB, Of course he had no business being out there, no one in their right mind would be out there in a 25 boat.

    Pearson 33-2

    There is a Pearson's users group there is some good info there. I looked at one liked the lines and the PHRF rating seems like it has a turn of speed. There are good number of them up north not so many on the Chesapeake. They are light balsa core above the water line not necessarily bad. As other have said small v-berth. They are well priced due to all of the above. Looks like a good compromise boat was my thought. The shallow draft sails to it number from what I have seen.

    Looking For a Lindenberg 22

    Hello Frenzy, sent you a Message earlier today on a L22, Frigate, ping me when you gets chance.
  12. You have a landfill nearby? Maybe something different going on there. Had such a problem once. Walking down the docks was so bad, Sorry never got rid of them until the landfill quit doing what ever they were doing, Firecrackers have worked well for buzzards nearby my house.
  13. A 60-year-old woman died Sunday when she was thrown from a two-person catamaran sailboat participating in a regatta after the vessel and a powerboat collided near Newport Bridge in Rhode Island, the state’s Department of Environmental Management said. The bridge connects Newport and Jamestown. Coast Guard Petty Officer Daniel Latimer said the powerboat apparently ran over the woman at about 2:45 p.m. in Narragansett Bay, and the propellers severely lacerated her. “She was unconscious and bleeding when the Newport harbormaster pulled her out of the harbor,” Latimer said. “They started CPR and were trying to revive her.” No other injuries were reported, he said The powerboat was operated by a couple who were out on the water “enjoying their day.” Latimer said no rules dictate how far vessels must stay away from each other, only “common courtesy.” The sailboat was racing in the New England 100 Regatta, the Department of Environmental Management said. The woman was killed during the North American Catamaran Racing Association’s New England chapter regatta. Latimer said that he did not know whether any charges would be brought, as that was not the Coast Guard’s responsibility. The Department of Environmental Managementis leading the investigation of the crash. The local police and fire departments are assisting. The Newport Police Department did not respond to requests for comment late Sunday.

    What have you lost overboard?

    Most recently lost a pair or Shady Rays Sunglass https://shadyrays.com on the start of a 3 day cruise. Sent an email and they sent me another pair. Did I really lose anything?
