    Annapolis Boat Show reactions

    Thanks for the recognition @Ward H, I did fly out to Annapolis at the suggestion of @LeslieTroyer. It was a great suggestion and experience for me.

    Annapolis Boat Show reactions

    Not to enter into the whole global warming thing, but for eons folks have chosen locations near water to site their villages. These change into towns then cities. We build buildings and pave roads and construct McMansions so close together that we can reach out thru the bathroom window and snag...

    Pilothouse in the PNW

    Fuel gauge / reading on a 2009 Beneteau 31
