Hobie Dog is Back!

Recommended Posts

Well after about a year hiatus from SA I decided to come back. I got really busy at work and I also got burned out with too many political comments on the Front Page and the main Sailing Anarchy forum is just WAY too much to keep up with! So I am back BUT only going to follow Cruising Anarchy, as you guys have lots of good stuff here, and Dinghy Anarchy as that forum has good stuff as well.

'Terrapin' my Jeanneau 37 is doing well. Rebuilt transmission from 2016 is running great and I put new standing rigging on her last year. Other than that, knock wood, all is good with her. Of course the usual replace a pump here and work on the head there; type of stuff...

Oh I am still trying to fix my stupid auto pilot! I am going to try to sort that out again on our next cruise. I might start a thread again on it to see if I can get some thoughts on it again.

Right on, welcome back!

Yeah, the key to survival is to carefully control your forum consumption. Too much or the wrong kind, is toxic. ;)

Thanks! When I get some time I will have to go and try to catch up on your thread. And HB as well, although I see him at the club so I know what he is up too! :D

[Most] crack on boats is bad.

Except if you are looking for somewhere to park the bicycle.

Maybe someone will find that rig tensioner pic to make things right again!

In other news I have managed to stay off the main SA forum but I did peak at the front page a few times. That rebuilt old boat that is top on there now is a pretty cool story and cool boat!

Welcome back...now we have a place for the FrigoBoat chronicles.

(I pretty much gave up on regular SA too..jesus..those fuckers do more typing than sailing.)

I need to do something to my boat so I can update my thread. I've been so busy, haven't had much time for the boat this summer. :(

I recharged that bitch in the Spring and she has been running a cool 38 degrees 24-7 since. I did shut her down for an hour this week to defrost the freezer and she fired right back up. Anyone have a Frig-O-Boat question I am the man for that! :D

Sounds like you have been busy with other projects this Summer! Wink wink...

Spanish Mackerel was at the NC Gov Cup this year! Her name is on the trophy for 2014!

Great regatta but could have used some wind this go around...

She will be at VA Gov Cup next weekend.
