New Kid on the Dock

I just found and joined the forum. I'm a liveaboard on the Fraser river, Richmond,BC. My boat is an '82 Cooper 508 cutter. I've had her 11/2 years. Brought her up from Ventura CA. New to big boats and sailing but grew up in small boats. Love the water & travel, hope to take her to blue water in a few years. Meanwhile in the steep part of the learning curve and this forum will help that a lot. First Q is anyone familiar with the old EZE furl behind mast furlers and "tuning" them to not jam?

This is indeed a great place. There is terrfic information here. If it were me, I would take your post an put it under that most approriate category. I'd be suprised if some one did not respond, or at least, give a bearing. Cheers.

Re: New Kid on the Dock

Welcome Gunboat, have fun cruising the Frazier and the San Juans. Make a point to hit a lot of the small harbors on the east side of Vancouver Island. Lots of great people in those harbors. Enjoy CF.
