    Well it’s official, No sailing this season

    That sucks! Our club opens up next week, although we're not sure of how restricted it'll be as of today. We consider ourselves lucky, living on an Island, when this all came down, enter/exits were strictly enforced and not even one hospitalization.so far. Brian

    What is the Weirdest Thing You Have Ever Found on a Boat

    I found instructions for a vibrator under my house battery last year, not so sure if that's a common boat find or not?

    Boatyard shut down due to COVID

    You have almost 35,000 cases in your state alone, more then 10 times the amount of any other, do you not get that? or is going to your boat more important?

    Boatyard shut down due to COVID

    If you can do it ,of course, but how many can do it with stopping somewhere along the way for, say supplies, or someone stops for a chat. You want to take that chance?

    Beneteau 323 Standing Rigging Cotter Pin Size Question

    FYI ,Cotter pins are the recommended items for rigging by most good sailing safety instructors for the simple reason is ,in a knock down they are easier to remove then splits rings or circle clips.

    Advice on the preventing condensation inside the boat

    I've used decadent moisture absorber the last 4 years placed in red solo cups, works great, in the spring never had mold or any moisture problems at all.

    hit a rock in the keel

    I'm saying it's lead, if it were steel it would have to have been welded in pieces to make that shape, unless it was cast steel, and I'm doubtful any company would go to that expense.

    hit a rock in the keel

    To have a bend like that it almost has to be lead, cast iron doesn't bend. I agree with Don above, only maybe place a few wood blocks tight underneath the keel and bend slowly from the inside out :)
