I'll be the one with the (many years old) gash in his neck from a Dewalt Sawzall-wielding disgruntled co-worker.

I hope it's not too-short of notice for HappyMdR and his wench-friend.
Did you make it out on monday or tuesday?

I have worked in your area twice in the past. Back in the late 80's, when I first worked there, I was a maintenance man at a facility in River Bend. I became friends with a guy that was a beach music DJ. Although I was a rocker/metal head at the time, I learned to like his music as well. Our day jobs were at the same place. He went by T Bird. Hanging with him was always fun. Later, I was repairing forklifts there again from 2007-2009. What marina are you in? Back in the T Bird days, we put his powerboat in at The Oar House in River Bend or at Bicentennial Park. Not sure if either are still named that anymore.

Been to New Bern.... Liked the place a lot! Just found out last week that one of our family friends owned the marina there for years..... Of course I replied to the new information with.... "And you're telling me this now instead of 15 years ago why???"

But, they are mighty proud of that burger. A feller could about afford to drink there if'n it weren't for the price of the vittles.

We'll be headed back down in a week or so, and I'll try to give you fair warning next time.

I believe that's about right. In the interests of full disclosure, however, I will admit to not having paid for it. My crew picked up that tab, thankee very much Bobby.

The network hub and connecting cable will arrive this coming week, which should afford completion of the radar installation. I still believe that the fuel tank gauge/sending unit (plus starboard cabin lights) are a wiring issue. But I haven't isolated just what, yet. I did learn that the back-up Uniden depth meter/gauge is only a loose wire, but getting it to work correctly requires a reset to known depth...which requires actually reading that manual.

It's always something little Roseanne Roseannadanna.

We are sailing now, though...

Flem... Please forward this not to Bobby when you get a chance...

"Bobby... You are more than welcome to go sailing with me any time..."

Sounds like you're going 2 steps forward and only 1/2 back... PLUS... yer sailing....! Gauge problems seem to be 80% wire/20% component... Boy if you're against reading a manual... That 6 degree offset for the Radar is gunna give you nightmares!

(this has got to be the 5th thread I hijacked today.... Sorry Curt!)

Re: Carolina Newbie

Welcome. We are a pretty spread out bunch here in NC, New Bern is two good days sailing to Southport, never mind Edenton. Get your charts out when its raining and blowing and check out the trip up to Beaufort/Cape Lookout, so you can be ready for great sailing weather. Wrightsville beach is also a good first destination with a good anchorage. Cape Lookout is a killer place to drop the hook and Beaufort will have all kinds of new flavors of waterfront saloons. It's one full day via ICW to Morehead/Beaufort from Wrightsville, then a short ocean sail out to Cape Lookout. If you're new to sailing, that's a great first trip out in the ocean, and if you're sailing in the Cape Fear you already know to mind the tides and current. Sailing from Wrightsville across Onslow Bay is a far better way to get there in good conditions in a sailboat. Drag a spoon behind you and you'll likely have supper.

My boat is tugging at her lines while I recover from back surgery two weeks ago. Enjoy the spring weather, like it seems mr Coyle is doing today. Don't know when I'll be fit to singlehand again, hopefully this summer.

Welcome, and fair winds-

Man, sorry to hear about the back surgery. Hope you get healed up soon.

But, no, I am not out on the water today. I meant "we're sailing" as in, "not still hamstrung by a wayward steering cable."

I was wondering where you were.... Sorry you had the problems... Know it too well... One day I'll be down that route... Good news??? Maybe the debilitating bouts of not being able to move for a week are behind you!
