    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,

    Hi, Skpr John,
    I'd like to introduce myself as I am not only new to this forum, but new to sailing as well. Are you on the Hilo side of the Big Island? We live in Friendswood (Clear Lake/Kemah area) Texas, but we have a home north of the Airport in Kona. My husband had an office for a couple of years in the small boat harbor in Kona close to the airport. If you are on the Kona side during our next visit, I would like to stop by and say Hi. We are currently leasing a 38' Hunter as a "practice boat" and working towards our 5 year plan of spending at least 6 months per year on a boat. I have completed some basic sailing courses but am enrolled in several more over the next few months. My interest right now is learning to race and learning as much as I can about boat handling, safety, the mechanical aspects, etc. Anyway, just wanted to drop a quick note and say Hi. Mahalo!

    Hi John
    Alan from Sydney
    . I'm semi-retired & looking to crew before going single handed on my own 34' cruiser.
    Looking at wind powered self steering options for my boat.
    Kind Regards

    Aloha, Look forward to meeting you when I sail back to Hilo, Radio Bay. You may check with Dan In Hilo @ for parts nearby. I lived on the big island two years about a year and half ago. Bought this boat in Norfolk to restore and sail back. Peace

    Thanks for the information. I am going to give the base marina a call. I have been looking at a lot of used boat ads online and I haven't seen a lot with transferrable slips. Is that something common? Also, I am on the waitlist at Keehi Marina and they said their wait time would be only about 6 months. Does that sound right?

    Thanks for the help,
  10. Maren

    Without a doubt you are one of the friendliest members on the site. Put another way, you are the glue (make that the epoxy) that helps hold the forum together.
