Re: Which boat would you consider? Hunter brand.

There are a number of sailing centers in teh world where many yachts must lower/raise their masts each and every time they venture out for a sail. Two that come to mind are the inner harbour in Santa Cruz California and ____ (dammit, I can't think of the name) in Western Australia. All these folks have arranged tabernacle systems that can be used in minutes by the onboard crews. The boats that are involved include some pretty big ones. You might benefit from some research into their methods.

Cheers,

Jim

The great majority of that beer is still in the fridge. I bought it more for my dock-mates and guests than for myself. I prefer wine, but I never drink when I sail. Only once I'm tied up and back at the docks.

Military Tags??? I have not notices any.

Actually, a tabernacle is not even going to be considered. My slip is 400 miles inland (by water) so having a tabernacle is not really that great of an idea. There are at least 3 bridges that the rig wouldn't clear.

I'm not too keen on having a rig with a hinged joint on the cabin top. Not that it wouldn't be fine, just not to my liking.

I doubt I spend much time at my slip any how. But at first I'll bring her home to do any necessary work before my first cruise.

I will probably store her at the river inlet if being home for short periods. I would only step her mast when bring her up for major repairs/refit.

Ok, may be my mistake.....hard to tell with all the beer stacking going on.

Just thought you may be one of those former Navy types. I'm a former Marine.......so we would have to fight if we ever met.

LOL... No Worries propellant tech. In that case you have an open & standing offer for two drinks. The first as agreed above. The second to toast your service to this country.

All the best!

Maybe sometime in the future, my wife and I may be up that way. She has talked in the past about seeing NY.

BTW my avatar is a picture during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. I served my country, and never asked for praise, never will.

There are many more heroes from the later wars in my book. They deserve much more praise.
