Southeastern Michigan

Lake Erie Pirates Steal Toledo Lighthouse Dock and Ramp

Posted on April 18, 2009 at 11:32am 2 Comments

Lake Erie Pirates stole the Toledo Lighthouse boat lift, dock and ramp apparently for scrap aluminum – they must be caught and brought to justice. Last Thursday, April 9th, the dock and ramp were seen in good order. Saturday the dock, ramp and lift were gone. The Toledo Lighthouse Society is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to arrest and conviction of the thieves. Tax deductible contributions to help with the reward and the dock may… Continue

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

water in sump near shaft packing gland

I recently found water in the sump aft of the engine under the packing gland. Of course my first suspicion was the Volvo gland, but turns out that the water was coming from the entry to the water lift muffler. Tightening both hose clamps stopped the leak. I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort.

Sailing on . . .

Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road.  To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days.
