  • Hi Bob, I'm currently working on a Passport 42C  (original name "Kowloon", original owner Stuart Ehrenreich, built in Hong Kong 89-90, semi custom boat redesigned with deeper keel and rudder, taller mast, etc.). Just wondering if you might have any idea what sort of deck core material was used, the owner is trying hard to find out before we open anything up, she's got a wet deck core after removing the old teak. Thanks!

    Is this a double ender? Or does it have a transom?

    Are you really sure about being built in HONG KONG? Somebody is VERY confused and it's not me.

     I'm certain the confused one is me. Current owner says original owner said Hong Kong, but we all know that may be a catch-all for the entire area. Given the boat's name, I'd expect it was built in Kowloon. I currently have two Passports side by side in the yard, just gave a hull paint job to one, the other is the one in question. Comparing the two, "Kowloon" has a sugar scoop type extension. A pretty short one. Current owner says original owner had the boat extensively redesigned for his purposes. Of course, we must take all hearsay with a big fat grain of salt. Trying to determine deck core material for certain; she's got wet deck. Looks like the old "Taiwan shingle" to me, but thought I'd try to find out for the owner before going big on it, he was led to believe the deck core was Airex. Thanks Bob!

    Bob, I'm so sorry that some people are so hateful about the terrible loss you have had.   I don't know what else to say. 



    I count 17 heads, unless steele cancels due to rain. Then it would be 15. Two kids on Matts boat.3-6 boats depending. Personally I don't see rain being a factor but maybe I'm just being optomistic.

    I think you know already but Blackjenner may not bring his boat. steele is planning on coming but may cancel if there's too much rain. Also Courtney is for sure but may come with Kim if the weather puts her off. Otherwise she may travel up in company with me. I assume it's OK to bring my dog along. you remember the little Rat terrier?


    I have 2 from north of the border, Kim 2, Courtney, steele 2, BJ 2 Matt 6, myself 2. that's 17 4-5 boats depending on whether Courtney comes in her own boat. More later, just got a call from aplumber on one of my jobs.

    Hi Bob,

    I mean it, it would be a pleasure to meet you and take you out on my T37. I think my friend with the Nassau consulted with you before buying the boat. I will look up you email and send you a think I wrote last fall.

    Merry Christmas all. Lorrie is deep in restorative sleep. Hope you all have had a good Christmas eve.

    Peace to us all.



    Many thanks for the recipe. I may add some smokey Paprika for some zest. Your recipoe is similar to mine but a bit more complex. I'll give it a try on Friday night.

    Keys to success:

    No fat, thinly trimed steak.

    In a side bowl add flour and sour cream, water, bouillon, pepper.

    In a medium skillet add steak, 'rooms, onion, hot butter and garlic. Heat, stir, drain fat.

    Then add sour cream mixture, cook, serve over noodles.

    Perhaps a full bodied cab.

    Then take a nap.

    The next day, spen...

    2 tspns instant beef bouillon granules

    I posted a rather long, wine filled rant pertaining to things that are important in life, according to me. I left it on the site for a few minutes and I thought you might have seen it. But then I thought twice and decided to revise it heavily. There is just no justification of evaluating everything by comparing it to the death of my son. That's my personal problem. Moon is an ...

    Saw your pm this am. Yes did see the slight. I was wondering what crawled under Moondance's skin.
