Best Wishes to Everyone!



In the spring, I’m usually filled with the anticipation of another terrific sailing season.  As  the two of us remain hunkered down doing our part to stop the spread of COVID 19, we’ve chosen to remain optimistic and patient.  We are still planning for spring, enjoying each other’s company, and keeping ourselves busy with and distracted by whatever boat/home maintenance we can accomplish here.  Most of all, we are extremely thankful for the efforts of those who are still at work keeping us fed, physically safe, and caring for us if we should fall ill.

If we all pitch in now, we can protect the people we love and our neighbors, and hopefully return to a new normal that will see us all safely once again leading our lives, and enjoying time aboard our Quicksteps out on the water.

Here’s wishing you good health and good luck!


  1. Hello Quickstep 21 Family,
    I have two questions:
    1). Blue Moon (hull #33), which til this point has been very dry inside, was a little wet when we opened up before our season’s first sail on beautiful Seneca Lake, New York. It seems that the water (and I think it is rain water) is coming in near the electrical panel. There are a bunch of though-hull connections around there and I think that the lifeline stanchion is the point of entry. Has anyone else experience this? My “fix” would be to remove the stanchion, lay down some butyl and reinstall. Thoughts?
    2). The mainsheet is showing some chafing. Without stepping the mast, is there a way to replace the line? I suspect there is and would like to know if anyone has done this and/or has any tips, hints or suggestions.
    Thanks in advance for your input.
    Tom and Kristen Siebenhuhner

  2. Jack, FYI. Nothing like being in touch! Stand by to come about.

    More …in due course. JDC
