    Thanks for the feedback, Mike. Hope all is well with you and your wife. We're in sunny Florida now working on the boat and sailing. I rarely think about the Midwest since we left. Send us some reports from Newfoundland. You are very fortunate to have this great opportunity in this magical place. Best, Rognvald

    I talked to the Annapolis Harbormaster's office this morning. Though I did not talk to the head person (call in), it seems they have banned composting heads for long-term stays (the only sort they would be aware of). They also have a mandatory pump-out process and fee for holding tanks ($5 every 2 weeks). The problem is shore side disposal, though I've not yet heard the details of who did what, perhaps something stupid.



    Are you aware of ANY areas that restrict use?


    I assume the best practice is to double bag it and put it in a dumpster? My guess is folks have been placing it in cans small by the busy dinghy dock in the park, which could be rather gross.

    I am a little late replying ��, I don't look at the user CP very often as I mostly just use the CF app and that stuff doesn't show up.

    I must try to catch you online sometime if thats ok (Skype perhaps?) I am trying to work through some issues with my 4108 - one being overheating slightly to about 92deg C.

    Where abouts are you located?

    Regards,

    Hi Mike,

    I am going to view a rafiki on Monday and hoping you can help me a little. It is on POP yachts in WA. It sound a good boat with no teak decks. I am however paranoid about coring in fibreglass as water will get in over time however well sealed.

    I cannot avoid a cored deck but just be diligent on survey etc. It is the hull that I wish to quiz you about. Do you know where in the hull it is cored? Is it structural? IT is obviously not dome to save weight. Some builder use a cored layer for insulation with only a thin layer of glass on the inside which is not structural.

    Have you drilled your hull or do your plans indicated anything?

    Thank you for your time! Tim

    Do I understand you have a Rafiki 35 (or had)? If so I'd be very interested in hearing your assessment of it, sailing characteristics, pros/cons, etc...thanks.
