    Manhasset Bay

    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!

    New mast for 105

    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?

    Suggestions on a getting a boat & trailer from NJ to WA?

    Unfortunately, the only way to save money is to do it yourself. I was looking at a 30 footer at a great price in Texas and after getting 10-12K transport estimates to the Northeast, gave up on the idea.

    I agree with you 100%. Horses for courses. Handicap rules suck. Across oceans shorthanded and cruising, Pogo no question. Racing in any handicap system, i'll have to pick the 121.
