Ever the adventurous dreamer, I spent years ignoring one of the most beautiful sailing venues only a few miles from home. By car, it is about 4 hours from Indialantic, Florida and about two from Everglades City. By boat from Everglades City it took us four days. Consider that we meander at 5 - 7 knots during…

Til Death due us Part

Posted on July 4, 2015 at 6:13pm 0 Comments

One never knows for certain if and when they will see another.  Life is a precious phenomenon. It has been said that living guarantees death. This is not to present a negative, depressing train of thought. Rather, it is meant to reiterate the sadness, guilt, and despair that can result when a loved one passes from the world of the living to a world the living knows little about.

Years ago I read a book. A question was posed. "What happens to a mind when a person dies. During…

Welcoming Self Back to Blogging

Before 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…

Hi Marlene, I have a Marples CC35, it is gorgeous but needs beams, cockpit etc finished. Do your amas fly very easy? Did you consider using an outboard instead of a diesel? I have offered my 27 year old daughter the boat but if she passes on it I may sell her. Love your new lifestyle. Stephen Marcoe

Hi Marlene I'm Karyn from Satellite Beach, Fl. I've been reading your blogs and your life sounds so interesting. Please contact me via my email if you get a chance. I just wanted to mention my reason for first trying to contact you and I didn't want to post in an open blog. My email is KVM32123@aol.com
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Safe travels, Karyn Miller

Hi Marlene Anne,  I'm Julie and I live in Vero Beach.  I am interested in your trip to NY and Bermuda.  Also I am interested in going sailing with you sometime when you take the tri out.  I am also interested in gaining enough experience to circumnavigate in 2 years!!  I own a 38' Westwind I have moored over in Fort Myers Florida for now.  But am looking to move it over to Vero Beach in April.  That might be a fun trip if you wanted to do part of it.

Yanmar 4JH4AE raw water pump wear plate

I recently changed the wear plate on the raw water pump on the Yanmar. I have about 1675 hours on the engine and the plate showed significant scaring and wear. It was an easy change-out. After removing the impeller the plate simply sits behind it and is easily removed with a dental pick/ bearing pick/ or toothpick. I also added the Speedseal Life cover. Nice device.The wear plate made a difference. Upon startup after an impeller change before changing the wear plate  out, I would sometimes need…See More
