    So who do I send the check to? How much?

    Almost finished installing forced air space heater (runs on diesel) on the Buffalo. Need some creature comforts as I get older...

    Are you planning a longer return, perhaps by way of the PNW? That's what I'd like to do - though 2022 is more likely than 2020 for that diversion.

    Let's see...Quancy has forced air heating, Johnson has a bathtub and a rubber duckie, what next, a Jacuzzi?

    Note paragraph 3. For some reason David want's to get to Hawaii in a hurry.


    Olson 29

    Conceived as a revamp of the Olson 30, the Olson 29 was in 1984. The 29 has the same hull as the 30, but everything else is different. The 29 had 3 important and more forward-thinking features when compared to the Olson 30: Ellpitical keel and rudder, fractional rig and open transom.

    Production commenced 1985 and it is believed that only 27 Olson 29’s were built.

    Due the smaller fore triangle, the 29 actually has less upwind sail area than the 30. The down wind sail area is higher as the 29’s mainsail is larger than the 30 and utilizing the “stock” penalty pole, the 29 has the same sized spinnaker as the 30.
