Ahoy Sir Charles,
Austin was my stomping ground '00-'05. Never had the cahones to launch my daysailor at Windy Point, though I sat at her banks time and time, antsy and ready to leap though still green to sailing. Glad I didnt, I would've upset her and had to witness her inundating demise. Our maiden voyage was off of Arkansas Bend at night. Left out of Lago VIsta several times when Pace Bend is hopping. Good Times!

When I was in Austin, all the ole hippies were ready to leave now that everyone and there grandma moved in.

Nothing ever remains!

Just a note to compliment you on the photo of Venice...I visited there during the spring. I am now back in Cleveland area for the summer. Hope you are having a wonderful time over the Fourth!

Thank you for inviting me to be your friend. I was in Italy 2 years ago - Genoa, Milan and Rome. My favorite spot was Venice - just breathtaking beauty. What a fabulous country you are experiencing! Have a great time! Viki

Hi Charles, Italy sounds wonderful...what do you teach? I teach a bilingual 2nd grade in an inner city school-very rough...I went to school at Ohio U. Do you know Dean Kahler who was shot at Kent State? Take care, Cathleen

Hi Charles, how are you? I also love sailing, as you might have guessed...but feel pretty landlocked here in Ohio. i bet Italy is way more exciting, of course...are you there sailing? have a great day-Cathleen

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
