Do not let 45 years hold you back :) I had Jessica crew for me on a trip from New Zealand to Vanuatu when she was 14 so I thought she would be able to manage it. It was the same boat so she knew it. She had competant crew available to help her but she pretty much did it single handed.

So, what experience did Jessica Watson bring to you that made you decide to lend her a boat for her first trans ocean as a skipper? Lending someone a boat is a big deal. I'm intrigued with the idea of sailing around the world. Although unlike Jessica who is 16, I'm 61. :-)

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"

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
