    I read your profile again, and you sure do like to sand teak! LOL

    Uh, Just noticed I needed to correct my phone number. I did. Don't I feel stupid?

    Don't be so hard on her. We bored her to tears with how to identify the hull number and date of launch. Anyway, at least we're making contact now.

    Back then we were beginning what became a 7 week cruise up to Santa Cruz Island where our transmission died 1.5 miles from the anchorage. We sailed back, taking five nights and days and arriving off Point Loma during a thunderstorm on the 19th. After 2 weeks to recover from the sleep deprivation and attend our 2nd grandson's birth, we are now in the repair mode.

    Star Light (formerly Star Chase, formerly Agape) is our home down in the California Yacht Marina in Chula Vista. We'd love to see your boat, show you ours, and pick your brains. Looks like you've done many of the things we have, many others we need to, and done them well. By the way, did your transmission work as well as it looked? And if so, would you have the phone for the repairman?

    Call me, Brad, at 858-204-1285. And so, how do we join the Willard group?

    Hello Mike,

    I think my wife and I kayaked by your boat back in August while you were away doing the mast dance. We just got back from our 7 week cruise, found your posts here, and have now joined this forum. Having worked on our boat since day one of ownership (5 years ago), we are impressed with what you've done with yours.

    BTW, on our dock is another Willard owned by another Brad. And he has the original sales brochure with poster.

    So, I'm glad we found your posts. Thank you for taking the time to post. Ahhh, did you know that there seems to be no way to join the Willard group? The choice to join is not part of the banner like all the other groups.

    Thanks for your compliment on my boat. I'm still not used to how this forum works and am also still in the middle of a move so I can BE with my boat, but I certainly have fallen in love with her. Hopefully, I will be out on her by the end of the month and learning her systems and ins and outs.

    I just looked at your pictures re: new cushion and see that you have a Mac PowerBook on board. Do you do any navigation with that and, if so, what program do you use? That is my platform of choice and I wonder if it will interface with my chart plotter or will I need to buy a cheap PC to do that.

    Wishing you happy sailing.
    Alan

    Good evening. I hope you do not mind me contacting you blindly, but my name is Alan Welch and I am in the process of buying a Willard 8-T cutter and just wanted to meet another owner. I will be taking possession of Quiet Passage in Lottsburg, Va and sailing her back to Bellhaven, NC next month. I just wanted to say hello and find someone I could talk with about the boat.

    Cheers,

    Alan

    Dear MV, I just found your thread on provisioning lists and I was wondering now, a year later from your original post, if you have your own list you could share with me. I am currently provisioning my boat and would like some guidance. My email is amy.hoag@verizon
    Thanks,

    I know we missed you! Jan got to the boat first, then I came down an hours or so later...I was at West Marine taking a class on splicing braided line. As you can see we took most of the canvas off. I cleaned it today in our backyard, and tomorrow I'll put on the water proofing. In a few days we'll be back down to the boat to put the canvas back on, and take the rest home for cleaning. We may see each other this coming weekend.

    Heck, I don't mind at all. We didn't have a view before when a big old power boat was there, and the view is no big deal to us anyway...glad to have you as a neighbor.

    I will say this about the end tie from a sailboat users point of view. As you approach the end tie the wind will have a tendancy to want to blow you away from the dock, but you have more room in that area to make another run at the dock. If you want to tie up facing the wind (that will make leaving the dock a breeze), then when you come in you'll have to make a tight 180 degree turnto bring you up to the dock...but if you can't make the turn in one swoop you still have backing up room to finish the approach.

    I found out Saturday that if I want to single hand our boat, I'll have to leave before much wind picks up. Even though the wind wants to blow our boat next to the dock (which is what I want), when all the lines are off the boat she starts to drift over to the boat next to us...weird.

    I stopped by your boat yesterday morning, but you weren't there. Your boat doesn't look like work in progress like you suggested, actually it looks pretty good.

    I got my oil changed and was going to take her out for a little bit, but the wind picked up good and I was getting tired so I opted for not going out this time.
