With foils coming in vogue i think westerly inflows in C...

I sailed out of Macktush years ago, after doing a little job up that side of the inlet. i recall it was a nice camp spot with good water access. this was early spring and the place was deserted. the wind was ok, probably the same you'd see at China Creek. There is a lot of boat traffic there and inl...

i cut carbon hockey sticks all the time, the trick is wrap it with tape to avoid splinters, use a fine tooth saw and sand the edge to avoid slivers afterwards. also don't breathe any of the dust. but yes it will be a bit short. :wink:
