Re: 10 year Anniversary

Congratulations Sal!

Could you please hire someone who listens to the company voice mailbox and returns calls?

Thanks,
Jens

Still in business? No return of phone calls? Why can't I get anymore replacement parts for my Sage 17?

Hi,

Since October, when a Level 2 hurricane hit New England and snapped the mast of Sage 17 #010, my adjuster tries to get a quote for a new mast.

I also tried myself, but no one returns calls.

Are you still in business?

Thanks,
Jens

The Lady is a Tank

This is my review after one season in New England inland waters and the North Atlantic. I just cleaned her and she looks like new – almost no wear and tear after a season where I had the fortune to be able to spend a lot of time sailing. Sturdiness: I did what everybody does and no one confesses, I ...

yes the handrails on the cabin top on this boat are stainless. positive - easy maintenance. negative - HOT HOT HOT on a sunny day. No, they aren't :-) Not in sunny New Hampshire, nor in August in a Southern state like Massachusetts... they are blank, not black! The only thing that's HOT HOT HOT on ...

I have the marine porta potti that came with the boat, but I don't use it. I'm separating liquid and solid waste. I have a very handy "Simply Orange" bottle that's great for boys, and a "Go Girl" (sold in the camping isle at Walmart) does the same for women. Once solid and liquid waste are separated...

The small internal tank can also be seen as a virtue, but that's now just my personal preference... While I was sailing on my lake starting with ice-out in March, I used the motor almost never, I always sailed off and back to my mooring. In this case having all the gas that's needed in months in the...

storing the hatch segments

Hi all, throwing the hatch segments on the v-berth isn't an option anymore, since I'm now in salt water and also the seagulls perform their occasional paint job on the bright work. I think attaching them to the deck as shown in the attached pics would be best. 2 eyelets each, with a strap or a rubbe...

2 hp on a Sage 17

Hi, I just wanted to share a few experiences with my little Suzuki DT2 on the Sage 17. In my opinion, 2hp are a good choice. The motor almost weighs and consumes "nothing", which is nice to carry and install, and less weight on the transom never hurts. The speed is "sufficient", in calm water and li...

Hi all, I kind of have solved the problem with plugs: - One set of plugs for the small drain holes (stainless steel machine bolts in a rubber tube). - One set of home depot 1-inch plugs, also in rubber hoses. I found out that water coming into the cockpit is quite independent of wind and heeling, an...
