New to the area, need recommendations on marinas and clubs in Manhasset Bay and some local knowledge on navigation that may not be on the charts. Do mostly distance racing in LIS, some wednesdays and some cruising. Boat 42 ft, 7 ft draft. Thank you!
Wow, this thread is full of commies, union and labor law lovers. JFC. Let the free market do its work. France and EU is drowing in unemployement. The employment taxes are fng suffocating my business' margins. Low level employees are in a circle of work and unemployment benefits. I've hired...
Thank you guys for the info. Glad to hear the replacement Sparcraft mast is good. Bought the 105 specifically for OD, so no carbon for this boat.
Wet spreaders, in your experience the broken masts you saw, did they break forward or aft?
Got a new to me 105 in beautiful condition, superexcited, only to have my mast destroyed in transport. Boat in Northeast USA. Need new mast. Looking for feedback on the new Sparcraft mast vs a used Hall mast. I know Sparcraft is a bit stiffer and slightly heavier, but would love to hear from...
Yup, also 125 built in carbon would be a few hundred grand more. Tough sell in a tough market. How many production (non-custom) builders of sailboats are left in US? Even Sabre is building motorboats now.
