Re: Solid/Bluewater Center Cockpit with modern interior?

Grant beat me to it. I have a Peterson 44 that needs a lot of interior work. I was planning to install new tanks, redo the engine room, including an updated Yanmar, and fix up the interior, but if...

Re: Timing Hell Gate

Thanks, David. Is it possible to choose among options 1, 2 and 3 as I come out of the Canal, based on how bad the waves are, or should I make that decision before that?

Stupidity sure sounds like the cause of this tragedy.. But I will read the final reports of the investigations before cementing that conclusion.
