Zee , this is a beautiful picture.
Thanks for sharing. It's time that we got our boat into the water up here in the north. LOL.

I remember one beautiful night, sailing the Ottawa river.
I had not been feeling well, suffering from a slight heat stroke that day, and I decided at about 10 pm that we better head home. So, we lifted anchor and sailed out of our bay. A full harvest moon and the many stars were our only illumination. The moon hung in the sky like a huge lantern, It wasn't very windy that evening, we had just enough wind to propell us forward and we had all the sails up. Like a silent phantom, a ghost ship, we drifting down river .It seemed like we sailed right into the moon. I'll never forget that night.

Finding our way into the dark entrance of the smaller Madawaska river, where our marina is located, was a challenge, but we did ok.
Zee .... awesome pics... love your cat !
There have been so many treasured moments but Liv's story reminded me of a special night sail. We were anchored off Shelter Island in Gardiner's Bay and though there was little wind, it was just enough to sail towards Sag Harbor. Sailing into the full moon, ghosting along without another boat of any sort in sight, the 4 of us sang into the night. The breeze sweetly caressed us and the music and friendship on board was magic.
Night sailing, my favourite time on board. YES..
night sailing, yes!! my first night sail was age 16 in eleanor to north troy and back to catskill creek...where uncle kept his boat.......impressive........and this......click to view video...:

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
