Support MAINE SAIL
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:08:36 AM »

Maine Sail contributes frequently to this Forum and many others.  He has developed many of the improved electrical systems we now take for granted on our boats.  He has tested electrical and anchoring equipment and reported on them.  He has written one of the best "How To Wax and Buff Your Boat" articles ever produced.  He sells the best butyl tape on the planet.

At our recent Officers Meeting, we discussed a proposal from one of our Members to contribute to Maine Sail's website.  After considering a number of options, we concluded that the most appropriate way would be to encourage all of YOU to contribute, since a one time contribution from the Association would most likely be less than a higher quantity of small donations from a larger group of skippers.

His approach reflects ours:  we strive to provide as much technical information to our skippers, via this Forum, Mainsheet magazine articles and the C34 Tech wiki.  We think it's appropriate that we encourage your support of Maine Sail's contributions to the boating community as well as those he has made here.

In addition to donations, his website has a load of information that is helpful to all skippers.

We're very fortunate to have Mainesail's advice.  We know it, now thousands who monitor Sailfeed or Panbo know it too.  Here's today's Sailfeed post:

and Panbo:

He was good enough to share his findings with us a month before in reply #13 of this post:

MaineSail has a new website which looks fantastic.

https://marinehowto.com/

Just used it and his new store to pickup a few things. He has been very helpful; as has the whole forum.
