Now that I have instruments mounted and feeding sailing data to the cockpit, what if I wanted to access that data from multiple areas of the boat? Maybe even have GPS data sent from an iPhone or iPad to an Autopilot? Maybe speed and wind … Continue readingNetworked! Cuajota Now Has a Wireless Data Network!!
This is always great, but for me especially nice. I found an amazing deal on a preowned Ullman carbon laminate headsail. So good I couldn’t pass up on it. It’s a 140 on my boat and requires no modifications for the boat at all! Just … Continue readingNew Ullman Carbon Headsail!

Here is something I’m almost embarrassed to admit. Since we have had the boat there has been no hailing port in it. It was Point Loma when we bought the boat and we decided to have that removed when we had the bottom paint … Continue readingHome. Hailing port Newport Beach
