Hi Voo. Yes all is fine with me thank you. But what a mess in the city. It was just so swallow some of the after shocks are only 2km deep. On tv last night they said it was the worst earthquake internationaly because of it being so shallow. Hope you can see this site.

Hi, At least you're getting boat stuff done. Here alot of times it just so darn cold. Rain coming today and for the next 3 days I think. Weekend looking good, so far..will take boat across the cove to new place on sat. All workers my current marina were a buzz on hearing Twizzled not staying. Oh well. We had a nice sail with an omygeezus moment thrown in for good measure. You know sailing..always an adventure

Love the looks of that Westerly! A mother's-in-law cabin..too funny, but I can see it would be great for an unruly sailors whilst on a long passage.

B43 Battery Switch Questions coming up during my LIFEPO4 Battery Upgrade Process

My AGM batteries are getting a bit tired and I am swapping them out for 400ah of lithium, 2 - 200ah 'drop in' replacements.My system has the 3000 watt inverter and Truecharge 40+ shore power charger which the boat came with and  I have verified with the battery manufacturer that these will work with the lithium (they said to set the shore power charger to GEL - WARM to get the right charging characteristics). I have also installed solar a few years back so will need to adjust the charging…See More

Varnish vs Teak Oil in Alaska (looking for advice)

Hey Gang,   I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
