Hi Doug.

Good to hear that you are still with the boat, even though it is on the hard.

Finlandia is currently in St. Marys, GA.  Just moved her up there a couple of weeks ago. She and I spent the winter in Titusville, FL.  I will be heading back down there in a couple of weeks to move her further north and should be back at Point Marina at Whortonsville by next month.  Let's get together and go sailing!

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
