  1. Don't worry. Hard to break, easy to fix.
  2. Forget the instruments and upgrade to the3DI and keep your head out of the boat.
  3. Do over. drop keel, clean good, lots of 5200 and tighten bolts so the 5200 squirts and let dry and re fiberglass.
  4. When the new boat in the fleet hasn’t won a race in 2 years and they win on corrected.. Guy on the committee boat puts up the wrong flag, has some kind of US Sailing certificate for running races. We contact race committee immediately and pull out flag that we are protesting.

  11. Aground! Now send me my swag!
  12. That bowline is going to chafe!

  14. If you monitor channel 16 the USCG will (sometimes) mention the approaching storm.
  15. There is a mast going into the original mast. May be temporary for a delivery.

  18. I worked at Wesr Marine in the early 90’s in Peabody. MA. The prices weren’t cheap but you only had to go to one store because we had it in stock. And if we didn’t we’d call around to our competitors to see if they had it and send them there. Tent sale in Newport, RI in September for foulies. 60% of at least.
