Another report of a book well worth reading.
Yes, another Webb Chiles book ' Return to the sea'..
Another circumnavigation, more adventures, a sail from Boston to Purtugal, Gibraltar, Dakar ,Africa, to Brazil, Capetown and on to Australia.
As always, Webb Chiles never disappoints me when I'm sailing along with him.
Another book I can't put down when the presents seems lost to me and another adventure at sea begins.
I've had my nose into two good books that I want to tell you about:
The first book is
'Morning light' by Margaret Griffiths.
It's a story about a man in his mid 60ties who is fullfilling his dream to sail across the Atlantic in a small wooden sail boat .
He continues through the Panama Canal and sails home to Vancouver Island. Soon after he gets home he learns of the death of his son while climbing Mt Everest. To come to grips with this tragedy he walks to basecamp, to the spot where his son's ashes were scattered onto the mountain.
The book is written by his wife in such a wonderful way that it brought tears to my eyes . It touched my heart.

The second book is ' The cure for anything is salt water' by Mary South..
A young woman leaves the corporate world behind and buys a 40 foot trawler. She has never owned or driven such a big boat before and goes on a cruise from Florida to Long Islan, NY.
This is a book that will inspire many, including myself. It's a wonderfully refreshing read.

"I had to replace my sheeve on both sides and really struggled to get the bolts out. Once I had them out, each was bent thus the challenge. I ended up stripping one or two of the hex bolts and used an angle grinder to square off the head of the bolt…"

B43 Traveller

The starboard side of my Traveller is starting to lift up. I am guessing to remove the center 5mm Allen bolt that goes through the middle of the sheeves, although I cannot get it to budge, to access it. Does anyone have any experience with this??Thanks Dave B43 Shore's AdriftSee More
