  1. Get on the list now for a shot at next season. It's not terribly long. There's two marinas on the reservoir, mine is on the frisco side, the other is at Dillon. I think Dillon takes longer. https://www.townoffrisco.com/play/frisco-bay-marina/general-info/ https://www.townofdillon.com/marina
  2. 75 today Post your favorite.
  3. Well I gave up on the phone tag, not sure why he hasn't called back. In the meantime I found a few other 7.3's with outboards, one with a trailer. So on it goes.
  4. Life was so much simpler and enjoyable before the the internet. A way of life forever lost on humanity.
  5. I like that, however the 7.3 is my current top choice. The owner and I are playing phone tag right now. If we connect and it sounds decent I will head out for OH Monday morning. Kicking myself for not moving faster on the Laser, it was literally in my backyard. Living in fly over land makes boat shopping difficult. Especially mid winter when most sane people have their boats stored away.
  6. I'm thinking Roy Underhill and The Woodwrights Shop.
  7. Points for ingenuity. https://denver.craigslist.org/boa/d/denver-coronado-capri-15-custom-hull/7284333825.html
  8. That is a great boat, but it is on the small side.
  9. Did you get a chance to check out the Frisco side? That's where we kept boats. It was a pretty small "marina" back then, the last two years they've dumped a ton of capital into it with more planned.
  10. A Cape Dory 25 with a trailer in what appeared to be great condition showed on CL yesterday, gone in 24 hours.
  11. Overnight on the boat is always good, even if it is only an hour away. Thing about Dillon is you can count on conditions coming up, no matter the forecast. Then suddenly they go away.
  12. Spent most of my career as an engineer. Station 3 was on a corner, a large pct of calls were left out of house left on a main street. Icy snowy roads were great for putting the engine into a "controlled" slide as we headed north. Mind you always well into the night and well before any traction control bs. My officer at the time didn't find it as cool as I did.
  13. How do they get there? It's been 10 or so years since I was there, did I miss them or is this a new situation?
  14. Sure did, I called to set up a time and it's already gone. Snooze you lose in todays market.
  15. It's cruise control, you can watch a stinking movie.
  16. This looks pretty cool. Any thoughts? https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/boa/d/van-nuys-albin-marine-express/7282690136.html
  17. Sweet, not for me but sweet. https://sparkleisforsale.com/
  18. Here's one. https://www.sailboatlistings.com/view/89092 What is it like down below as far as headroom and creature comforts? I think it's very interesting.
  19. This one got me really excited a year ago, but if you look at all the photos it's a real project. I don't know, maybe..... https://www.popyachts.com/sloop-sailboats-for-sale/c-c-yachts-29-2-in-pensacola-florida-186946
  20. That's a nice looking boat. Photos are dated June of 2019, I wonder if that's indicative of a problem. Here's one in not as nice condition but it has a road trailer. Hmmm, wonder if the trailer could be sold separately? https://au.yachtworld.com/boats/1971/c-c-27-mk-i-2931208/
  21. Yes, Dillon will be the primary place to sail. Very aware of the "unique" winds and frigid water. Got my ass kicked one day at twin lakes, sailing an O'Day 19 on a bluebird day that suddenly turned to shit. Not interested in water ballasted boats.
  22. My guess is virtually impossible. If it fails fill the hole and slap on an outboard?
  23. Been on a wait list for a mooring on Dillon, got the call, I'm up. Have had a couple other boats there in the past, it's a great place to spend the summer. Now I need to find a boat! The last few years I've been all over the place in regards to what I can actually do sailing. The most sensible and affordable is a small boat moored close to home that spends it's off season on a trailer right here. Criteria: Day sailing with occasional overnights, no racing, lots of single handing No major projects, Draft is not an issue so fin keel preferred over swing or centerbo
  24. I don't think a single cop or news talking head knows what "shock" is or how idiotic they sound when mentioning it. Another one that rubs me wrong is the use of "accident" to describe any crash. For what it's worth in my 30 year career I responded to my share or crashes, not on of them was an "accident". All were a direct result of a drivers action or failure to act. Usually speed or inattention was the culprit. Or blame it on the vehicle, "the car went out of control" or "the car slid on the ice". Idiots. rant over
