Hi Ken,

We were supposed to sail to Sitka but the weather was too rough. I was so excited to see that part of the world, the mountains reaching to the ocean, the wildlife. You capture the area well it seems - at least the dream I harbor in my minds eye.

We did go to weather but never a following sea. I've been told one must wait till July for the winds to change. The capt. was eager to return home so here I am, back in Port Townsend earning to be back on the water! Have you found it difficult to make the transition back to land life after sailing?

"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
