  2. Just dropped by to say Hi.

    I opted for a plastic boat myself and being as I am usually the only one on board with any sailing experience I may as well be single handing her. All lines run aft to the cockpit and for 39' she's pretty nimble love sailing her and she brings quite a sense of freedom. I just retired so a project boat wasn't to my liking but boats being boats there's always something to do. Blue water capable and all I am lacking right now is a water maker but I do have tankage for 200 gallons of water at the moment. Still pretty warm here so I don't think I'll need to do to much to her for another month, I am hoping anyway. Single handing a cutter rig is definitely worthy of respect, fellers gotta have himself about eight arms. lol Take care Mate and I'm wishing you a mild winter.
  3. What might be thee best time to head fer Key West ? I would imagine not August-November , but other than that what might be the most agreeable time to hit the Keys ?
  4. No Better Place To Be!

    Not overwhelmed but I am weary and tired of the same old scuttlebut and hyperbole on social media , trying to wean meself off of Facebook . Looks like there are a few folks what infrequently frequent the Pyracy pub so perhaps I shall frequent the pub more frequently me ownsef . Spending more time on my little ship the Dengue 2 but when I'm ashore I think I will spend a little more time with you good folks . At least the topics here make more sense, at least they are more fun .

    Well Coastie04 I has found my smallship , although I am rather fond of a cutter rig , but my masthead sloop is rigged so that I can single hand her . Should get me around where I needs to get , perhaps I'll see you out on the water some day. If yer ever off of Point Roberts call out to the Dengue 2 and perhaps we could share a pint or two somewhere in my neighbourhood .

They are very ornate and they are registered as 1768 models . Does anyone know anything about Zanotti pistols ?
