New to the forum. My wife and I sail on the Mississippi Gulf Coast on a terrific 1962 Creekmore 36. Any other Creekmore owners out there. Next week is haulout time. Bottom job and cutlass bearing. Also considering trying a urethane propeller from Performance Propellers in New York. Supposedly they change pitch with higher engine rpms to give more power when needed. Anybody out there ever heard of this?

Re: Ahoy

Welcome from another coastie in Ocean Springs. I currently work on the Biloxi Schooner and sail small boats out of Ocean Springs Yacht Club. I hope to buy a larger boat to live aboard someday, maybe even sail to the barrier islands for camping.

Be interesting to hear what you think about the 'prop'.....
