Driving East in the Westbound Lane

A sweet day with my daughter.

I awoke at 0600 and after making the needed head call I returned to my bunk to check out the weather on my Kindle, read the USA Today news, and listen to Pandora’s comedy channel for a bit. Tim, my friend from the marina, had invited me to ...join him to get breakfast so I got…

Bliss it is....

Posted by Marlene Anne Sassaman on April 15, 2013 at 11:48am 3 Comments

January 11, 2013 seems like eons ago. The frenetic pace that moved me from a comfortably numb existence to living the dream is overwhelming. Where have I been these past three months, where am I now, and where am I going are the questions I am learning to answer in the present tense. Following the philosophy of Eckhart Toll in his books about the "Power of Now" it is clear that doing so empowers one to enjoy the roses along life's twists and turns.

Weaving philosophy throughout my…

battered but still in the game

Posted by John V. G. Mayton on May 13, 2013 at 8:06pm 0 Comments

Before heading off to work on Friday I packed my stuff for a weekend on the boat and stowed it in the car; gym bag, toiletries and laptop.  At 5:30 I check out of the office and headed east towards New Bern, stopping briefly to fuel up at Sam’s Club.  Arriving at the dock it was still light out as I loaded my gear in a dock cart and proceeded to the boat.  Climbing aboard I settled in after a quick check of the bilges and other routine tasks such as opening the thru hull valves for the…

"FYI the power to the pump comes thru the AC control brain mounted near the AC unit. Power still goes to the pump if the unit is turned off at the thermastat but not if you turn off the circuit breaker."

"Could it be the condensation pump from the AC? We have such a pump in the rear unit (that I just replaced) makes just the sound you mention."

"If you have air/heat on the boat and the unit is on, it can be the condensation pump for the air conditioner. If not, not sure. If you do have air, then turn of air and seer if buzzing stops. And this is a sign of a new condensation pump. Bruce"

buzz from the bow

OK, another strange one.When all is quiet I her an intermitent buzz emanating from somewhere forward, It goes "buzz, buzz" then quiet. Happens at about forty second intervals (but not consistent). Sounds like an electrical sound, but am very uncertain.The boat is a 2008 43, with thruster and windlass. It sounds like it comes from the windlass area or the port side in the vberth.The admiral is developing a tick.Ideas?SamLonghawkSee More
