    Vinyl Wraps, Who has em?? Worth it??

    Quick update on the wrap for a 25 foot sailboat. With waterline and cove stripe of 3M 1080 by a Preferred 3M installer - $3,500.00. This is not the panacea for an unsightly hull.

    Vinyl Wraps, Who has em?? Worth it??

    I am seriously looking into putting a wrap on my 25 foot 5ksb. In the Detroit area there are two easily ID'd 3M Preferred vendors who promote marine wraps and also carry the Avery product. Other than the drawback of a limited color pallet (I so wanted Awlgrips Sea Foam Green) what is good to...

    Bayview Mac 2015 NOR

    We did one BYC Mac race on the Melges 32 - Never again. Did five Chi- Macs on the Melges 32 and some of those memories are the best ever. Doing a race like that on a boat where you have little shelter and no one goes below - EVER - is a different challenge but not a bad one.

    C&C 44, Anyone have experience with this boat racing or cruising?

    spent a ton of time racing three varieties of the 41 when it was new and suspect the perfromance of 44 is similar to the standard version. Good all around boat and over-all Mackinac race winner. Never had a build concern.

    what is it?

    put Seadek on the cockpit nonskid last year and it is amazing. Works great dry and even better wet, eliminates the need for pads in the shorts, is easy on the knees and the threads. The rest of the boat is petitioning for the upgrade.

    WTF, Esimit sailors threaten activists with knives?

    There’s an underlying theme here that cuts to the heart of enviros and America. They wouldn’t be able to exist in the US without personal and economic freedom. They do their best to ensure that we have no economic freedom. Then they are shocked when they go to an area ruled by thugs. They...

    Queens Cup 2013

    PRO took water temp readings on Thursday and found temps mid lake as low as 38 degrees. It was bitterly cold and the heavy fog only added to the joy. The town of Ludington was GREAT! I have never been to a finish line port so filled with welcoming and helpful people. I think 50% of the town was...
