    Chicago Mac 2022

    We saw them turn around. I didn't talk to anyone in the boat but what I was told is they looked at forecast and just said nope.

    What's a fair price for this boat?

    We used to have the best nickname for As Larks, but I'm pretty sure it's way too un PC to mention in this day and age.

    One of the best yachting books ever written. Have it on my coffee table most times.

    NY to SFO the hard way

    Wise. I grew up going out of here, and I would be very nervous after all the winter gales. But we are here if needed.

    NY to SFO the hard way

    I guess he has no auxiliary power? Slogging up the beach against the ride and no wind is going to be a bitch. If anyone does communicate with him I'd strongly suggest not trying to come in Rudee without someone local who knows the inlet. It shoals badly this time of year.

    8 Bells Geoff Ewenson

    I was shocked to hear yesterday. Still am tbh. Sailed many years on many different boats with Geoff, I'll miss him terribly.

    Surveyor in Hampton, VA area

    Ron is retired. Bay Harbor has been sold and is under new ownership. He is still doing a little though to help out. Lloyd would definitely be the surveyor to use.

    It's not a question of work, it's a question of money.

    Taylor 40 ML Meridian

    Promises was built slightly higher grade than As Larks aka Fitikoko. I don't think Fiti had the carbon in her for one thing. But overall very similar boats. Yeah, we built a Carkeek 40 last year, just finished the Miami - Eleuthera race last week with it. Fantastic race, hope more people take a...

    It was completely refurbished by Larry Kumins, who bought it from SMSA. @voodoochile is the current owner.

    Taylor 40 ML Meridian

    It's just the nature of the beast. There's no money to maintain these kinds of boats in a college program. When St Mary's got done with Prelude, one of our previous donations, it was basically uninhabitable. Promises, the Tripp 38, too. You just have to be ok with the college kids getting some...

    Taylor 40 ML Meridian

    Good to hear. It was basically all gone, and the bottom had some gnarly ass brushed on power boat anti fouling on the bottom. She is a very unique and cool boat, happy it's been brought back up to standard.
