I am so glad this place is still around. Man where has the time gone. I just today washed my boat and got ready to go sailing at a nearby small lake tomorrow. I was down and out for a while with knee problems and have not put her in the water since spring of 2007. I made so many modifications and things back then to make it just right. My new years resolution was to go sailing a lot this summer but here it is Sept and I have not gone once. Problem here in the NC mountains is its a drive to a big lake and a few years ago my inlaws had a place on a big lake in VA that we could use for a week at a time. Anyways, hello everyone and especially to anyone who remembers me. Mods I made. opened the cuddy on my model that had the little sleave. Made aluminum motor mount, made aluminum ladder, made my own fulring jib, added foam for floatation to the mains'l, as well as reefing. Some other things to that I can't remember. Anyways, hope this gets me back into sailing again. This toy has been too long neglected with playing with my motorcycles and restoring and driving my MG midget.
