    Law Enforcement Sailing Association

    Lodi, I am five years out as well with plans to sell the house (in 2 years) and the boat (in 2 years, to make financial room for the retirement cruiser) and head south to spend a few years in the Caribbean. If you are interested in starting a group, I'd be happy to help out on the East Coast...

    Anyone aware of any US companies, other than JOWI, that make cradles? We recently relocated the boat and the yard we want to take it to requires a cradle.

    Fuel Tank leak

    It's nice to see that someone realized that the hinge on the door through the bulkhead is better on the side than on the bottom! I'm surprised I haven't snapped the door in half doing work back there!

    The end of one era, beginning of the next

    Is it also in the bilge area just aft of the forward berth? Maybe coming in from your anchor locker so check under the forward berth and see if it's coming from that direction. Just a thought. I know you said that it is after each storm but check your fresh water tank connections as well just...

    Ouick Member Query...

    You can consume in NJ but if you are under the influence, you suffer penalties similar to that if you were operating a motor vehicle. Under the influence is 0.08%BAC per se OR any amount if it is determined that alcohol has contributed to the unsafe operation of the vessel. In other words, you...

    Cape May NJ to Lewis DE

    Let me know when you're taking that trip. Will meet you at Cape May and tag along. Traffic can be somewhat heavy but nothing that can't be managed with an attentive watch and a plan. Have done Philly to AC, C&D to AC and vice versa numerous times and have not had any issues at all. The bay...
