    Mike: The stanchions are thru bolted with solid backing plates. I see no problem at all.

    You don't think it would be too much pull on the bottom of the stanchions, do you? Very simple, and clever too!

    We have just wrapped up a two week visit with Judith and Haakon, Island Packet 380 TOUCHE owners, who flew into Fort Lauderdale, Florida and presented Arctic Sailing seminars at the Miami boat show and the Coconut Grove Sailing Club. We have been planning and anticipating their visit for months.

    When special events like this arrive, they seem to happen so fast and before you know it, the fun is over! We are sad to see this time end, but the amazing aspect is all events and activities turned out to be better than planned. We really enjoyed getting to know Judith and Haakon and we appreciate their effort and expense of flying here from Copenhagen Denmark. Their seminars were about the two months they spent last summer far above the Arctic Circle as they explored the island of Svalbard. They reached the northern latitude of 80 degrees. After swimming with icebergs and photographing polar bears, beluga whales, puffins, geese, arctic fox, walruses, and beautiful fjords and icebergs, they sailed south to the northern tip of Norway.

    Here is a list summary of our two weeks:

    We use the same concentration that you have on board, acquired from a pool supply store. One ounce for each 20 gallons has worked for us. Read the label if it still has one (or google the MSDS) and use proper precautions. Re chlorine: the charcoal in the filter is doing the work. I have measured the free chlorine in the water on both sides of our filter, and it helps, but does not remove all of the chlorine. Hope this helps.
