  1. In my opinion it delivers. I'm sure Chris could arrange a test sail if you give him a call.
  2. Never sailed against another boat while sailing one, but I'm quite sure they'd sail rings around an Alerion 28 (which I would kill to own BTW). I doubt they'd outperform an E22, but they are heaps easier to sail as well as far more comfortable. If I had the dosh that would be on my short list.
  3. Owner comes to us with inner tube and hose claps (not) keeping water out of the tube of the sprit on a J 130 whose original wiper assembly is long gone. Can't get a replacement from Jboats and a former after market fabricator no longer deals with this. Currently perusing Mcmaster Carr but nothing great yet. Anyone? Bueller? Thanks for any suggestions

  5. That was an excellant time. Boy, do I miss her.
  6. Looks like a Rhode Island Red to me Tom, but it could be a New Hampshire as well, I can't tell the difference. Right now I have 3, as well as 4 Black Stars, who are even nicer. They are all about 10 months old and so naiive they are laying pretty well even in the short days. I should be up to my elbows in eggs after the equinox.
  7. Rhode Island Red? One of my favorites, we had one who would escape the run, walk around the house and peck at the door to get Mrs Nettles to give her some love. It was all great until there was a visiting dog...
  8. Just read this and as said above i'm inordinately gutted for never having met the man. We used to talk cows as I'm a country kid gone to boats. I will very much miss his level headed courteous manner and quick sense of humor. Deepest condolences to his family and all who knew him. Go well my friend.
  9. Yup. I'd recognize those butts anywhere.
  10. AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh you're killing me Ajax! Nantucket is virtually the epicenter of the "Fleece the tourist" universe. As a fellow Boat Nanny used to say "It costs 100 bucks to wake up in Nantucket" or as a summer resident once said to me, "What do you call 100 dollar bill in Nantucket? A ten". Mrs Nettles and I used to go quite a bit 20 years ago, but most of the time I was getting paid and the other times were when we had scoped out a deal. It is far beyond my means now. Cool little place though, and it is possible to visit by boat and not break the bank, but you'll need to an
  11. Aint it though? And I'm finding it difficult to see any clearing on the horizon. I'm hoping it's chronic depression, not reality.
  12. Jeebus PB! I take my eyes off you for a couple of weeks... Relieved you are feeling better, but concerned about the lung fuckery. I'll send along the best vibes I can for a complete recovery. I can't believe I missed this whole saga to date, but it is spring in the boatyard and it's kicking my ass (again), so all I do is work, eat and sleep. Please take care, but it sounds like you've got it pretty well sussed. No surprise there.
  13. Only a fool puts plate on a wheel, but I'm not smart enough to tell if it's plate.
