    You can get those decals from Harken. They give them away at shows, so I bet you could call them and get some mailed to you. I have them on my boat for the family, and guests that should happen aboard my boat. Gregg

    Who Dat!!!

    As a Niners fan, all I can say is 0-2 not the way to make it to the playoffs, but what a fight they put up. Probably the best 0-2 team in the league. Great game.

    want to see Interior up grades

    Little black mounts I had the same issue on mine, so what I did was to get one, and us it as a model, and I made a new set of four out of the HDPE or seaboard. I started with a square block that is 3/4" think and rounded them off and drilled a hole to fit the support pipes. A little work...

    PVC Roller Furler

    Check a thread called Hank or Furl. I posted a ton of info on how to build one. I can help whenever needed. I think I am into it for less than 30 buck for the parts.

    Justice NSR

    Hopefully, someone in prison will off him, and save all of us some tax money. Either that or he will startfeeling like crap and off himself like the Craigslist killer did in Boston last week. Glad to hear that the justice system is not totally broken.

    Looking for a 260 in Calif

    Mike nice looking boat(s). I hope to have a short search. It is just hard to find a good one out here on the left coast. My dad was in West Palm for about 10 years, and he said they were like flies there. Kind of like the Catalina here. A lot of them here, but I don't want one. They...

    I actually have sailed my Venture 25 in some pretty bad stuff, I have been sailing the Bay since I was about 2 or 3, so I can get out of most stuff. The Mac is really light in fact I was on a scale last year with everything on it, it weighed in at a whopping 2800 lbs. I like the 680 lb keet...

    D.I.Y. roller furling

    Sum... If you search hank or furl, I posted a complete list and you too can buld one. It really makes a difference. I wouldn't go on the SF Bay w/o it again. I never go to the foredeck to raise or drop sails in heavy seas. Much safer Gregg
