You got the numbers right. Instead of degrees, minutes and seconds I am using degrees, minutes and tenths/hundredths of minutes.
29° 49.16’ N
82° 25.82’ W
Which does indeed put me near La Crosse FL (no connection with La Crosse WI which I have visited a couple of times). Coincidentally I am also about 6 miles from the Hunter
Boat factory in Alachua FL.
No, don't have a pool. just a few acres in the woods close to home. Bought my Pearson
last year in NY understanding it had been neglected and needed a lot of TLC. Brought it down the ICW
in Oct and moored in Green Cove Springs for a couple of months. Quickly realized that driving over an hour one way to the boat would really slow down the overhaul
so had the boat hauled out the woods 15 minutes from home.
One thing I have seen in a number of Pearsons you might want to check. Seems like they used a mild steel
plate for the mast
step. Not familiar with the Triton but if your mast
stepped you should look at the base of the mast. The Al mast creates a galvanic reaction with the steel
plate and eats away the bottom of the mast. I am cutting off about 2" of the mast and replacing the step with a composite fitting set up 2" higher to compensate for the lost
What kind of plane? I see a lot of sailors that are also pilots.
