    Sail cover color choices + logo

    The helmet logo is also available in the PNG format - and can converted over to CAD if necessary. Check your cover guy's requirements (file format, preferred vector or raster) and let me know - we can get it sorted out one way or the other. If you can, you would want to get it actually sewn...

    Sail into Slip if Engine Fails?

    I kept my dingy on a small rota mold float I built in front that I could run into/up on to if needed... I sailed back to the dock a number of times - for practice mostly - but then twice out of necessity.... //sse

    Spent the night aboard working on the engine...discovered something new to me...

    Yeah, lots of openings - the reason why you get rain water down your mast and into your bilge. You should hear the rigging during a gale while on the hook - the halyards stop rapping because they're held in place by the wind, and all you get is a odd 'moaning' of wind over the spreaders. //sse

    New Ericson Owners

    How to get off MAURIPRO Sailing newsletter mailing list?

    Brion Toss, RIP

    Wow - that is so sad. Yes, he was at the 2005 NWER and gave a little talk on rigging. We were right across from his loft.... I remember I bought one of his harnesses and a set of ratcheting blocks to go up my mast.

    2020 PNW Rendezvous - July 17-19, 2020 - Genoa Bay Marina

    I know this won't come as much of a surprise to anyone, but it appears that we're going to have to cancel our trip up there in July due to COVID and associated family scheduling. If anyone is looking for a close-in accommodation for the event, we were going to be staying at a placed in the...
