That search no longer works. Also, when I try a Topica search , I get a "server not found error". A further google search yields nothing related to the old site. I"m afraid it does not exist anymore. Wish we could get the data it contained.
There was much more activity when we were young and energetic. I'm afraid the CSY crowd is getting older and I don't see the Millennials coming up to take our places in the sailing community. Alas!

Holger, I finally have internet and a few minutes to try to track this down for you.  Sorry I gave you the wrong link earlier, but we've been in and out of internet for the last 2 months.  Here is the correct link:

We used 2-part automotive paint that is equivalent to Awlgrip and a heckuva lot cheaper, and took a swatch of burgundy Sunbrella down to a Napa Auto Parts store, and got them to mix up the exact color that would match our Sunbrella (on a different boat than the CSY Soggy Paws, which Dave opted to paint the stripe black).

Hi Jules,

Have you checked here?

My internet is slow and expensive right now, so I won't bother, but report back if this still works.  Sorry we've been silent lately... we just sailed from the Philippines to Papua New Guinea... about 1000 miles "to windward" (but not to windward this time of year).  Haven't had internet for a month... just catching up.

I'm not to internet savvy, so maybe it's just my lack of skill, but I could not find an explanation of CSY HIN code. My boat's HIN is TXY44600579. What does this indicate? the "T" is Tampa I think and "79" at end is year. Is my boat hull #600?

Anyone know what happened to the old web site called It contained a wealth of CSY info and was used for many years by early owners. If it is defunct, I wonder where all the data went. Haven't seen any reference to it lately.

That would certainly work but my bow thruster installation prevented that.  Remember that the air intake can be a bit noisy if you sleep up there. One way to quiet the intake fan is to run it via a duct, the longer the quieter.  Not that this is always a viable method in a boat but I learned it the hard way in one of my houses.
