    Sun 27 question

    My parents had a Sun 27 when I was a kid. I actually 'lived' on it during the week of the summers I worked at a yard on Lake Erie. I remember the interior to be very roomy for a 27' foot boat, including the v-berth. I was (am) 6' and slept just fine in the v-berth. Good times...

    Chicago-Mac/Meridian X MOB Recovery

    +1. I've been at this a long time....and have learned from the information shared here. I was on a boat that was right in the middle of this too. We endured a pretty violent round up, which I believe ironically helped us get our kite down. I know a couple of the guys on the Meridian and can't imagine the emotional process all of you have endured. Regardless of the 2nd guessing from some...the bottom line is the team was able to retrieve their guy. Thanks for sharing the details. The information is extremely helpful.

    Not a Tri...but a Farr 400. Big props to the crew and to the others that attempted to assist!

    West Michigan Thread

    Quantum Sails will be participating in two seminar events during the month of April at Macatawa Bay Yacht Club. Both events will take place on a Wednesday evening. On April 12, Quantum’s Farley Fontenot will share many of his experiences, with a general topic of ‘Maximizing your boats performance, through the tools of sail control.’ On April 26, Quantum’s Dave Gerber will facilitate 'A sailors round table’. All sailors, including cruisers, racers and juniors…please attend this seminar where we will discuss sailing on the Great Lakes. Bring your questions, your pictures, your thoughts and even your concerns. This should provide for an enjoyable evening and camaraderie.’ Additionally, there will be several Quantum subject matter experts available to discuss almost any sailing topic that interests you. Both events are targeted to all sailors including cruising and racing enthusiasts, along with junior sailors. The events are open to anyone in the area that would like to attend. Quantum will have some door prizes and other giveaways too. The events will run from 6:00-9:00pm and MBYC will also be open for food and beverages. We look forward to a great turnout and a great sharing of educational information. Thanks in advance for ‘passing the word.’ We look forward to seeing you there!

    Been that way since the MedCup days. Best sailing on the interwebs, keep up the great work guys. +1 Little tough on the work productivity...but great to watch. Hopefully this can carry over to next events.
  12. Sounds like you hit a bit of a BVI lotto. Enjoy!
  13. Hroth...PM me if you want to meet for a coffee or beer near Holland. Happy to share a bunch of info with you and probably still have one of the cruising guides if you want to borrow it.

    Venture (not MacGregor) Memories...

    My dad owned a Venture 17 when I was probably 7 or 8. He sold that, then one day he arrives home with a Venture 224. My mother was livid, as I assume there wasn't much discussion prior the purchase. The 224 was the 'pop-top' version of the 24. I'll never forget my dad saying.."I now have stand up head room. What more do I need"? He called it 'Wet and Wild". Classic If it wasn't for that...I wouldn't be enjoying the sport like I do today.
