    Send me your email and I will send you a Gulf of St. Lawrence cruising guide put together by Jim Evans. It is fairly comprehensive and in a word doc.

    Hello Rognvald, I was interested in your posts re; Edson radial wheel (777-8) replacement since I am contemplating same on my C&C 33 in order to drop the rudder for replacement/repair. I have a solid stainless rudder post but the stainless bolts in the collar are seized so I am considering using a 22mm hole saw to cut around them down to the split in the collar and thus enable removal. Of course this is going to destroy the wheel but due to the very limited space available seems the only solution. I've thought about drilling them out but the likelihood of keeping the drill straight on the bolt with the space available is not good. Also getting the "standard size" issue from Edson, however I believe the post to be 2 3/8 or 2.375" with a 1/4" keyway, so I'm pretty sure it must be a "standard size." ( getting some slightly different readings with the micrometer, but difficult to measure in place ) Any advice?

    Hi I thought I'd drop a line and say hi to a fellow sailor currently in the Great Lakes where do you sail out of? What year is your Pearson?

    You made good observations in the stuck in the sand post. I can back you in thought the biggest one is I would not want to be in blue water in that boat. If he does not get it off you and I will pay more because he will not have a home. I do not see any other outcome for him. I do understand why the city has a fine and I do not feel it is trying to be unjust. They do not want trash left on the beaches. The loss of a home no matter how humble is sad. I would like to see if he is still trying to save it. For trying he deserves some good will. best wishes LOU452
