    I don't know what it is, but the fairing on those seams look likes I did it!

    Death of an IOR "Cadenza"

    I was a last minute walk on with Cadenza for the '88 BBS. Carl was in Korea with the US Olympic team, and Jean was running the show. We had plenty of new boat teething problems (deck flex, winch movement, headfoil failure), but racing against boats like Camouflage was amazing! It's a sad end...

    Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. A little fine tuning and my 15 year old BC charts may even work!

    Garmin GPSMap 76cx and Win 8: live navigation?

    I have a client who has thrown at me the task of configuring his Win 8 ultrabook to use his Garmin GPSMap 76cx as a live positioning source for (computer) onscreen navigation. He loves Navionics on his iPad and wants a similar solution for Win 8. The Bluechart program will send waypoints and...

    Car suggestions?

    Great minds! In spite of the 80s Subaru that I hated, I am now looking at a 2010 STI.

    Car suggestions?

    Thank you everyone. I had mentally written off Ford and Subaru and will take another look. The Bentley may well be inexpensive post-depreciation, but I think it'd make my Audi look cheap to run! The Lexus is just too small (I am almost 6'4"). I am considering the Mitsubishi RVR (Outlander Sport...

    Car suggestions?

    It's time for a new car. I am almost willing to buy a 2010 Infiniti G367x, but 330 hp and two tons is more than I need. AWD is a must, and I want it to be fun to drive. I won't buy Audi/VW (did that with an '01 TT), and wonder what I have missed. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    It sounds like Clare is pretty sick, and would benefit from all the positive energy and/or prayer that we can send her way.

    Soverel 33

    Decent? Yes. Light and fast, and wanting plenty of rail meat. We used have enough 200 pounders that we figured we had a ton on the rail. In Vancouver. Check build quality and condition, though. The deck on the one I mention had some pretty serious Corn Flakes noises. Tow? I have no idea.

    AC-DoG photos on Ft Pg (a Higher Rezolution Treat)

    It's been quite a while since he was in the public eye, but I think I am safe in saying that this is a great new look for the former Fred Flinstone: DC.
