    Setting off around the world!

    Anchorage in Santa Cruz Hi, i don't have any experience anchoring in Santa Cruz, but usually we see folks anchoring between the wharf and the cliffs on the west side of the wharf (closer to the wharf, you'll see others there). Cruisers anchor on the east side too, but I've heard it can be...

    E35II Holding Tank Installation

    Common wall I believe it is the common wall. Thanks for resurrecting this thread I've not seen. Some PO put a 13 gallon tank below the v birth squandering a bunch of space.

    Hi Phil! Pics are taken in Moss Landing, north harbor. No windvane, the PO thought the brackets on the back where for a step ladder, although I'm sure it was for a windvane. I've seen similar brackets on other boats with a Monitor, and there is a Monitor windvane sticker on the man overboard...

    Valhalla Hi Sailors, I'm a new owner of Valhalla, a 1977 35-2. These are just after I bought Valhalla. I've done some clean up since then, mostly inside. It's in pretty good shape, and I'll have some questions soon, but wanted to share a couple of pics here. Cheers Shane Pointy End...
