Re: Club Financial Statements for 2012

I am suitably impressed at the financial turnaround. It is a credit to the hard work of everyone on the BOD. Two thumbs up.

Yes it's retro but just the shape of the windsheild or any other single attribute should not automatically make it the decendant of and old series. This seems to be able to stand o...

Linoleum is both front and back, can't get away from it. When I was having the boat restored I had pictured it with a teak and holly sole but Tom convinced me (rightly so) to stick with the "as made" approach.

Got my new Brass Bell today all nicely wrapped and a good looking Red and White staring at me. Until I opened it up and all the pages fell out separately. Anyone else have this problem? Are we saving on glue? LOL On the positive side 70 of us can now read this issue simultaneously.

Motoized Trailer Dolly

Does anyone use a motorized trailer dolly to move their boats around? Since my classic is not used all that much I like to keep it tucked out of the way and safe but manually muscling it around on the grass and gravel is getting a little hard for me. My vehicle can not access these areas and I don't...

Great story and glad you made it home safely. It always amazes me how huge a boat looks in a marina (especially when blocked) yet how small it feels out on the open ocean. Add fog + night and it starts to give you an idea of your place in the universe. Good luck with your project and safe sailing.

Is it wrong? Depends on the alternative. Are you willing to put the time in and $$ in to do it bright? And be realistic! Would the boat otherwise become a bonfire next Halloween?

An acquaintance recently returned from the Burning Man event in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada and showed me these pictures of a Chris Craft Cruiser that they give rides in around the fair.
