Hi everyone. Has anyone had ac installed on their pilot. I'm down south and summers are not fun without the air. Had it on my b-40 but think space might be an issue with the 35. Thanks

Re-chroming fittings

Nebaras' restoration is coming along nicely but I've realized that the fitting really do need to be re-chromed.  Has anyone had this done?  If so, would you recommended them?Regards,EricContinue

Newsworthy!

Louis Meyer, aboard his Pilot, Strummer, crossed the starting line from Newport, R.I., and is very much in the Bermuda 1-2 Race now. He is sailing solo to Bermuda. After he rests up a bit, he has two others hopping aboard and sailing Bermuda to the Azores on his Pilot!

Shogun's fuel tank

Shogun has a new fuel tank. The removal was routine but the repositioning was a bit of a challange but has been accomplished . This was completed by the Hinckley yard in Oxford,MD. For anyone interested there is a photo of the new tank posted under photos. When we pulled the old tank out I found a socket wrench,2 screw drivers,and a stuffing box nut in the bilge where the tank was located !

"Yes, David, the top sides are Awlgrip Flag Blue. We last did that in the early 1990s so I have to assume the Yaros or Tom Miller renewed them since then. Thanks for keeping her "Bristol." Best to you for fair winds and following seas."
