Quote from GB

I sent an email to Grand Banks asking for a quote for replacing the rudder blade. I received a reply early this morning from Ken Loh. It is obvious that they are taking the earlier criticisms of the parts department very seriously. Although I am not surprised, a replacement blade would be $650USD pl...

Cape May to Manasquan

Have made the trip this time of year outside. Should be no problem for your 36. Little Egg Harb Inlet requires caution when entering...shoaling. AC has an anchorage ahd Barnaget is busy but wide open with anchorages.

Good Luck
