    Beware of “Phil Bloom”

    A few days ago I placed an ad for a Simrad chart plotter in the “Gear” section of the classifieds. Within 24 hours I received an inquiry from “Phil Bloom” asking me about highest offer so far and for pictures. Note that there are photos of the plotter in the ad. I responded with basically...

    Garmin Instruments - Any Experience

    We've had the Nexus NX 2 system on our J/30 for the 5 years that we've sailed the boat.  System is beginning to fail (transducers, server, etc.).  Some of the displays are still working just fine (Wind, Multi Display, 7" mast display) so we are looking at the Garmion suite of instruments with...

    Sailed on a 29 this past week in 20 plus knots with 4' plus lumps in the pond. Great ride, super wet but my son and I had a blast with some good friends. Wife came on board afterwards and went below. That was it - no way. Funny part is, I agree. I am getting older and I want the comfys down...

    Repowering an old MORC boat

    I own a 1981 Kelly Mirage 28 that is powered by an internal single cylinder, 10 HP gas engine. We don’t do any really long distance racing or cruising, it’s all local beer can racing and day sailing. I recently had to replace the engine again (third engine in 11 years). Even with the recently...
