Relying on our Sailing Club smart guys, who did depth readings for every one of the 50 or so cruisers in slips at our club and for the masterminding and moving itineraries for each keel to be able to fit as the lake drew down, many skippers were quite fortunate to have been quite safe during the past few months.

One of my projects on an upcoming visit is to refurbish the KiwiGrip that has performed marvelously. My intent is to do a thin application and alter the color just a bit.

The spreadsheet continues as one thing and then another changes and gets replaced and/or improved. Through all her improvements Nautica continues to profit longevity.

And I cannot see that this will ever change but to become even more special as the remaining fleet narrows over the years.
