New profile posts

I have recently completed some needed upgrades on my MacGregor 25, Rae Marie. Replacing the pink windows is underway. I just completed a 5-year gig as agronomist in SW Kansas. As of September 1, 2021 I am once again available to sail and to do selected work on trailer sailers 25-ft or below. You will note I need to bring back up to present, so that's where my current profile stands.
68, paragliding accident in 20180417, resulting in L1 burst fracture and bruised spinal cord. Have regained perhaps 90%of my legs still use a walker, crutches, cane, or hiking poles. Gotten back into sailing, body boarding, camping, drawing and painting and writing.

Today I went sailing out of Challenged Sailors SD. It started with 4 kt wind and about 15kts to 20+ kts. Had to sail with a fisherman's reef when the wind piped up to 15 to 22kt !
I have a 2016 23.5 Precision. Looking to replace the outboard adjustable bracket
I might be parting out a P23 if it is not accepted as a donation to a local maritime museum in Md. They will visit and decide sometime after Sept. 5 weekend. If interested, contact me at
I just bought a 1978 ODay Day sailer. Would like to know how the boom stays in place without sliding up, also how high should it be from th base of the mast. Thanks! I haven't put it in the water yet but plan to take it to Lake Matinenda this week. All advice I will welcome! Thanks!!!
Hey Tucker, I totally lost track of this last year, and for that I apologize. Would you, but any chance, still be in the DC area? I still have those cushions of you want them.
