Well new day and a bunch of go fast sportfishers hauling ass south throwing up their 5+ foot wakes. If you know any of them then thank them for me, from the bottom of my heart, etc. But nothing you can do about ignorance.
If any body has a need for a boat detailer I have one looking for work. He is doing a fine job on my old boat.

My sail instructor helped me secure the boat b 4 my MN 4 week trip..in view of our heavy hurricane season. No problems with EARL, however heard we may have to stay prepared for Sept.

We left the covers on for the Main and Jib, but tied over. We double lined all the lines. This is a floating slip.

We measured, the water came up 26" at our dock on Tarpon Channel.

Just rain and a little wind here at Point Marina. Strongest wind gust was 37 knots. Water did not make it up to within a foot of the docks and has gone down by at least two feet now at 08:30. Kind of a let down after all of the hype, but I would rather be let down than blown away. Anyone here from Ocracoke?

Some wind, very light rain, no water over our dock here in Oriental. (just outside the downtown). But boy the mosquitoes are fierce! I found that out when I went down to check out the boat. But then they have been bad all day as we were prepping for Earls arrival.

Water is over the street in Oriental, but that is nothing new.

Well Core Creek is quiet. Not much rain or wind. Water is still below the seawall. So far not even making like a good old fashion nor'easter. will probably change and make me eat my words but for now it will have to wake me up :)

Thanks for the prayers and good wishes guys. I'm sitting here on my boat in Point Marina in Whortonsville, NC waiting for Earl to make his appearance. So far still calm. Not even any rain. Water here in Broad Creek has been rising slowly all day but still has about 3 feet to go to get to the top of the docks. Finlandia is tied down like a Chrismas present. If she goes anywhere she will have to take the docks with her!

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
