In Topic: trusting your new old boat

Today, 02:41 PM

I successfully employed the KTL method yesterday motoring my boat, which has been out of the water five years, 45 miles to my home. My fingers are still sore from crossing them so tight. Let the trust-building begin!

Glad to hear the motor didn't let you down. Why all motoring? That's always the bit I trust the least. My first sail of any substance with this boat (~35NM around Cape Ann) is coming up this weekend providing my winter yard gets their shit together and launches it this week.

Grats Red. Hope all goes well on your delivery to Westbrook. I love Pilot's Point, was there for several years with our previous boat. Enjoy!

Yeah Hawthorne Cove in Salem is a Brewer's but doesn't compare to the manicured resort style of Pilot's Point in CT. Great location though right next to the House of Seven Gables and an easy walk to everything in town. Lots of decent restaurants and such.

I hear you Maui. I got spoiled when our previous boat was on LIS at a very plush Brewer's yard, had everything you could ever want and was awesome when the kids were little. Now we're on the north shore of MA and adjusting to the more "basic" accomodations. I don't really mind though. At this point we just want a decent mooring, a good launch service and adult stuff to do ashore. Plenty of that where we're going to be (Salem).

Oh that's rich. This whole "men in the women's locker room" civil rights crisis was most certainly manufactured by the LEFT, ed.

Try addressing the actual point. Does biological determination matter, or not? There is no logical justification for an answer of "sometimes".
