Hey fello NC sailors,,,,are we ready for EARL? I secured my home and boat before I went on recent vacation.

My prayers go to all of us.

Thanks Lola. That's interesting. When he's finished I just might boat out there and check it out.

Jim: I'm in Oriental now on Finlandia. Read your blog. Looks like it just about says it all except for me "dumming out" and getting my hand caught in the winch.
The swelling is going down and will be healed before next trip. :--)

Hey all. Allen Judy and I just returned from a very interesting trip on my boat from Washinton, NC to Beaufort, NC. The intended destination was Jacksonville, FL, but the weather was not going to have any of that. Take a look at my blog for the most up to date report. When Allen gets back home from his boat, I am sure he will have a lot to say himself. :) Enjoy.

Just back from 8 days bareboat charter in the BVI's; from Norman Island, Cooper Island, the Dogs, Marina Cay, Virgin Gorda, Anagada to Jost Van Dyke and back to Road Town on a 44' Lagoon cat. Weather wonderful, anchorages and harbors much as they were when spending a month there in 2003. Fun!

Jim - Looks like we missed our raft-up at Indian Island, or at least I did. Did anyone make it? If not, maybe we can shoot for April some time. I will be down to the boat toward the end of this month but it's a planned trip to Ocracoke and back.

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
