Greetings from the southern coast of Maine. Will be heading down the coast in September for warmer climates. No snow this Christmas! :-)

Will be moving down to Safety Harbour (Tampa Bay) next year.  Plan to retire and do some cruising following the sun.  Have family in Safety Harbor and looking forward to my plans taking shape.

Hi Captn Ron!

Thanks so much for the welcome mat!  Hope to meet you "where the butter melts" in the future!  We're just learning to sail, and can't wait till we can sail to Florida from Louisiana.  Next year at the latest!  Love your pictures!

Like your comment about going south til the butter melts  ...read a similar one about a man giving up the sea ..he said he would put an oar over his shoulder and walk inland and wouldnt stop until someone asked him what he was carrying!

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.
