    Hi John..saw a dated posting of yours mentioning you might have spare rvg equipment, still the case? I have an RVG mounted on my sailboat and spares are always desired.

    Hi John. My name is Gary and we just moved here to the Big Island (Hawaiin Beaches to be exact) in April from Seattle. Since you seem to know a lot about the local sailing scene here I was wondering if you would mind getting me up to speed on what sailing there is here. I also besides being a firefighter in Seattle, had a boat repair and diving business there since the mid 70's. Was wondering what the possibilities for part time boat repair work would be here.
    I went down and saw the small boat YC at hilo bay. No one was there, but I did get a chance to sail my RC boat there in the harbor for a few hours. I'm getting withdrawals with now sailing !

    Several years ago, you posted about a Westerly Centaur on the Big Isle you looked at. It was a 1969. I think it has made it's way to Waikiki, and on sale at the Ala Wai (Dock 800). Can't be many 69 Centaurs in Hawaii.
    Do you remember much about this boat?

    Several photos of boats sunk or aground at the moorings in Hilo Bay during that short period of wild winds last weekend. Assume you didn't have any problems.

    John, I began sailing in Hawaii. Had a condo on Maui and met a History Prof in Lahana with a 65 foot formosa. My son and I joined him for a 3 month cruise around the islands while he collected data for his masters degree. My first passage was Maui to Molaki in 35 kt winds. Fell in love with it and went back to Calif and bought the Shannon. I see on Google that they have become very popular and most have been totally restored. I will miss her when she sells.

    Thank you Skipper John for your kind words. I am going to miss sailing. We had planned to sail to Hawaii and spend as much time as we could there....its a beautiful place.

    If you are interested, we can check shipping on the Profurl unit. They have to get to Hawaii some way.

    Just let me know.

    Warm regards,
