  1. Keeping on Lake Erie. Surprised to find 2 T33s with in an hour of my house. Decisions.
  2. I am looking at this boat tomorrow. Owned byTartan parts guy. There is another one newly for sale in the area. Wife wants more cruising.
  3. Try Goat Yard Marine on Detroit River. Near BYC just south of Lake St Clair. If you plan on sailing on Lake St Clair next season, come down to the Mills Race. We will probably have 5 J/92s doing the race
  4. Growler, Andrews 40 is in Cleveland. Currently being refurbished. Talk of putting new rig on it
  5. Looked at bunch of 9.1s a few years ago. Common problems were mast step, mast partners, rot in port bulkhead, and god awful stained and mildewed carpet on ceilings and walls. Early models had blisters and one had mild steel keel bolts. That being said the boats sail well are ok if all or most of the problems have been addressed.
  6. Great Lakes covers a pretty wide area. The formula provided is probably the Schell regression formula which is pretty much discredited. Send in an application to your local phrf region and they can provide you with a rating. Probably close to rating of a Dufour 350. Base of 123-132 + adjustments for keel etc
  7. Crew needs to spot a car in Port Huron 7-23 till 7-28. Any suggestions for a safe place
  8. O’Reilly auto parts sells rebranded Dekka marine batteries. The heavier with most ah the better. Way cheaper than WM. Check the specs. Same batteries both made by East Penn. You might consider their AGM battery instead of the FLA batteries.
  9. Buy a Johnson Pump head complete unit for $120. Replace about every 7 yrs. Easy Peasy https://www.hodgesmarine.com/joh80-47230-01-johnson-pump-comfort-manual-toilet.html?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping - All Products&utm_term=1100200315462&utm_content=Shopping - All Products
  10. You won't find any J/92s for 35k Canadian, 35k US-maybe with trailer
  11. Curious, do the VPPs accurately predict planing? What effect does wave state play? I used to hear about pitching gyradius in the IMS days.Can someone explain? isn’t part of the “secret” part of ORR the subjective manipulation to offset poor predictions of speed due to bad foil design?
  12. Over the years I’ve had several heads. I now buy cheapJohnson Pump manual heads. They last 8 years or more. Unscrew the 4 bolts holding them down and install a new one in about 15 minutes. Current price for one is $108. My only tip is that I keep a gallon jug of freshwater in the head compartment. Never use sea water to flush with
  13. I lived in Indiana for 8 years. 3 years in Bloomington. Lake Monroe isn’t that bad. 1-1/2 hours from your location. Tanzer 22, Paceship 23, Hunter 23 all have swing keels. Merit 22/23 would be my pick if you could find one.
  14. So you are on Geist Reservoir near the Indianapolis Sailing club. How about a Capri 22 or Merit 22. Somehow I think you know a little bit more about boats than you let on. Didn’t you used to own a Hobie 33? Hot tip for Geist. Watch for people grilling out on shore. Expect a micro puff when they light up their gas grill. Noted light air venue.
