It is a bit big on her, but it worked...the Baby pfd by Kent

This is the one we ordered. We don't know how she'll like it yet, but once she joins us and we try it out, we'll be sure to let you know.

Anyone find a semi-comfortable pfd for an infant under 30 lbs ? Ousr son is 9months old and starts screaming as soon as the life vest goes on. The problem seems to be the excessive thickness of the chest area (which, I'm sure, is to keep him floating face up)

my baby was a week old... and loved sleeping in the vegtable hammock.... and then we got bigger hammocks.. hung below out of the sun.... just cover them all up with light clothing... wonder if they make baby clothes with the UV protection now... or buy the fabric.

water in sump near shaft packing gland

I recently found water in the sump aft of the engine under the packing gland. Of course my first suspicion was the Volvo gland, but turns out that the water was coming from the entry to the water lift muffler. Tightening both hose clamps stopped the leak. I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More

Sailing on . . .

Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road.  To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
