Tropical Storm Lee took two days to transit the gulf coast, and prior to that I thought I had found and repaired all my leaks. Well guess what 8-10 inches of reain will do, Leak, Leak and Leak. Boy…Continue

Always a great day for a sail??

Posted on July 10, 2011 at 8:51am 0 Comments

Yesterday, the winds were blowing 11-15 but, what seemed different was the temperature of the wind was 90+ deg and you just couldn't cool off. That's when the new "mister" installed on the aft deck became a lifesaver. I had been fighting putting one in for years because I didn't think it was nautical enought, but hidden away under the cockpit storage area, it worked out great. I guess as we get older we start making some better decisions and but the way we keep the crew happy in the…


maybe a little warmer than normal

On the gulf coast don't remember this much heat past several years, while on the water today the wind was just plain "hot", worried that it might effect our hurricane season

Hi Kurt ..couldn't agree more with your comments ...Yes , Life is great! As Ratty famously quotes in The Wind in the Willows' ....'there is nothing, absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats'. Take care

Laffing at your description of sailing with a "honking" 2kts, gusting to 4kts..hope you were harnessed and tethered! :-)

Hi Kurt, They are different. Lots of room and are fun to sail. High freeboard but like the boat.

Hey Curt, I know the Gulf Coast has some great boating. I used to live in Destin as a teenager and I remember seeing all the sailboats there, but at that time I was more interested in the other "sights" that gains a teenage boys attention. ;) As soon as I finish up school I am hoping to get hired at either Eglin AF Base Hospital, Pensacola Naval Station Hospital, or U.of S. AL Hospital.

I am counting the months.... be glad when I am counting the days.

Hey Curt The Photo of you going through the ICW brings back tons of great memories. The road in the background was only 2 miles from my house I traveled it many times. I also traveled the ICW many times heading over to Pirates Coves and Orange Beach... Your boat is a beauty! I'll be down in Ocean Springs and Gulf Shores in Late Feb. Hope to see your beautiful boat cruise up and down the ICW! God Bless your travels!

"I use TeaQua on my rails and companionway doors. I've only had to apply it once to the doors since the original oil faded. I do my rails in the spring. Just a quick sand and rub it on."
