"Ron, Welcome to the group.  You will enjoy sailing. Now is the time to be sailing not rehabbing or updating. We leave a clipboard in the cabin and all season long we make notes of things that need to be changed or fixed so when I pull her out…"

Anew sailing year

Another year has passed. We were one of the lucky ones who took their boat away from the shore the Saturday before sandy hit. We brought her home to sit the winter out in the back yard. I hope we get some nice weather so I can get some work done on her before the season comes. I will keep everyone posted as we progress.

I sit down along the bay thinking about the coming season and how much we really enjoy ourselves on our boat sitting out on the water. This short video is the Keyport mooring field which is usually full of sailboats. There is nothing, not even a boat in site. Sure it is depressing now, but in a couple of months, it will be a different story. After the season gets going, this area will be full of sailboats. All of us with that million dollar view. The video ends on the Keyort Yacht Club dock.

"This past summer I continued the search.  I was finally able to find the small island off Treasure Lake which is not an island any longer.  There is an area that on an extremely low tide may become an island.  We call this a sand bar…"

"We named our boat Lil Provo.  We have traveled the Caribbean for years trying to find that perfect little island.  Our favorite place is Grace Bay on Providenciales.  On the island they refer to it as Provo.  Providenciales is…"

"We have a '78 22' with shoal keel.  So it sounds like the deck to you as well.  I guess I'll have to try to find someone that can go below with a wrench, while I unscrew things from above. Thank you."

"Oday Owners Help- While sailing I have been having some water end up on the cabin sole.  I open the inspection opening to the bilge and it has minimal water.  What would cause water to come in while sailing and high enough to only make it…"

Hi!  Thanks for the friend invite.  Seems that NJ has quite a few sailors.  I'm currently still living in London, UK, but hopefully (fingers crossed) I'll be in the States (Jersey City) for good by the end of summer 2011.  Have you got any nice plans for Xmas?

"I may have a few at home. I will check next week. I took them off my 42 when I installed the cascade toe rail. Boat had teak toe rails that leaked and rotted the deck and sheer clamp. I went with mounts on the deck.  Tim "

Stanchion holders

Anyone have a lead on finding some stanchion mounts, that fit the cascade custom toe rails. They were custom designed, the last I heard, a group put together for an order of Fifty or so. Might want to do that again???? Jack.See More

Welcoming Self Back to BloggingBefore retirement there was always time to blog. Journaling and writing articles flowed from my fingers. Click-clacking across the keyboard, nearly as fast as my high school typing days breaking the speed/accuracy records of my classmates,  is how I whiled away sleepless nights. My energy level allowed swimming for 45 minutes each morning. Then, keeping in stride with the ad, I ran on Dunkin' in order to paste on a sincere smile as I opened the car door to greet…See More
