From Roy Brooks …

North bound in Colvos Passage on a beautiful northwest morning, Triumph, our Grand Banks 42 was joined for several minutes by these guys that just wanted to play. I might add they are much faster than our Grand Banks as they made repeated large circles crossing in front as close as they could without being hit. It was a great way to start our trip for that weekend.

Chance Summer Meetings

Lily and I saw lots of PSGBOA members in Pender Harbor and Princess Louisa Inlet this past week. Here are photos of three couples and their GBs, together with yours truly. We also saw Baby Grand (1974 32 Sedan, Ray and Anne McGrew) in Roche Harbor, and I know we missed many of you.

Happy travels!

Replacing the Flybridge Steering Cable

I recently replaced the steering cable between the flybridge and the lower helm on Archimedes, our Grand Banks 42. The project was surprisingly easy and inexpensive. Since many of our Grand Banks are getting on in years, I though the process might be of interest. It’s a fairly long post. Rather than post it all here, I’ll just point you to my blog for all the details.
