    Buying a boat without a broker?

    I sold a boat years ago like this (2 private parties) and hired a broker to handle the paper work. Paid him a minuscule fee.

    Asheville, NC

    I know I'm late to the party but... spend a night at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It close to 5000' in elevation. BTW; It has the restaurant not Mt Mitchell. But Mt Mitchell is worth a day trip; highest peak east of the Mississippi at 6600'+ . You can't go wrong in Asheville from it's own funkiness to the unlimited outdoor adventures. Depends on what do YOU like to do... Biltmore is beyond awesome. Buy Tix online in advance Most breweries per capita in the country. Multiple waterfalls near Brevard. Dupont St Forest. Shining Rock Wildernesss Area for short but spectacular hikes above 6000" PM me for more... I go there a lot and have friends that live there. May is the perfect time too. It's barely Spring and the tourists aren't there yet.

    J-105 cruising down the ICW

    There has been a resurgence of a J-105 fleet in CHS. It could have been one those boats heading to it's Winter "home". We had our last race of the year this past weekend.

    Potential new Beneteau 36.7 Owner

    I have a 2003 36.7 for sale in Charleston SC. It's the lowest priced one in the country. (Or should be) Need to sell it to fend off medical bills an college tuition.

    Robby Gordon super trucks

    He's been known to "test" his trucks on the streets of the business park where he builds them here in Charlotte, NC. And by testing I mean building jumps and the like...

    Next AC venue options ?

    I'm sure Charleston would shit all over it self to host it. I can't think of a city that thinks any higher and mightier of themselves than CHS.

    mondo bondage

    Did you read his list of "Partners" ? I'd say some good old fashioned bartering with some front page add space and he'll have this boat tricked out in no time at very little to zero cost.

    Who makes the best battle flags?

    I got off easy. My boats name is Echo so bought a huge 3x5 "E" signal flag right off the shelve.
  11. Having two OD events so close together in both date and distance can only be good for both.

    Supposed to be completed in June. Traffic will still suck... World of Coke is cool too as is the CNN tour and Piedmont Park.

    St. Augustine area

    I looked there but the main marina is still closed. I'm assuming from hurricane damage. No solid time line for reopening.

    St. Augustine area

    Yeah, that is a little too far up the ICW for us. However New Smyrna is an option.

    St. Augustine area

    The wife and I are thinking about moving our 36.7 from CHS to St. Aug. for a change of pace. We may even keep going South over time. Does anybody have any inside info and/or pros can cons about the area. Racing is not a high concern anymore but it would be nice if there were some. Or better yet, other recommendations for the central Fla coastal area.
