I need to sit down and read some of the past post to get myself caught up as I have let this slide for so long. At least I have been busy with deliveries, from Hawaii to Mexico and some short no nothing stuff. Mostly sail with some stink pots tossed in the mix. The interesting aspect in how ill prepared some owners are. No rigging inspections, old sails and running rigging something less that fair. BUT there sure is a shit pot of food on board! plus all the games, internet and other creature comforts! Uh how the most important thing to check guys? One boat had rusted out hose clamps on the main thru hull fittings, as in touch them and they crumbled! Sailing 3,000 plus miles is not day sailing in the harbor!
Be safe, be free
