No Place Like Home,,, or at least nearby

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 no wind days and that…See More

Til Death due us Part

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 life we accumulate…See More

Welcoming Self Back to BloggingBefore 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 energy level allowed swimming for 45 minutes each morning. Then, keeping in stride with the ad, I ran on Dunkin' in order to paste on a sincere smile as I opened the car door to greet…See More

Sailing Downwind a la Kayak style

Tired from a long upwind paddle along the intracoastal waterway bordering the town of Stuart, Florida we had a nice downwind reprieve for the second half of the tour. After looking back over my shoulder spying puffs coming from behind I could not resist a reprieve in the mangroves. Fellow tour buddy, Brian couldn't resist capturing my pose for which I am grateful. Another caveat of learning to sail is substituting one's body for a spinnaker.  However, you sail, happy sails to you. …See More

Recap and an Invite

To those who have been following my blog and to those new to my musings let me begin this morning with a recap and an invite.My writings began as a means to clarify my thoughts while holding myself accountable for my plans. My internet connection is about to run out for this month so I don't want to spend time researching when I posted my first blog. Safe to say it was about five years ago. Many goals have been accomplished. Writing a book like most aspirees has gone to the way side. It is just…See More

Time Passes

As the days pass into weeks it amazes me how much I get done as well as how much is left to do. With sailing taking a back seat to my need for a passionate existence, playing the piano has become my solace while satisfying my competitive nature. When I was learning to sail and throughout my racing career it was myself who I competed with the majority of time. Setting goals, writing out scenarios, and practicing real live drills is the same.Each night as I lie in bed I visualize what melodies…See More

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. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More

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.

Jammed Electric Cabin Top Winch

Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go. I then tried a steel drift and the cap never moved in the slightest. It is as if it was secured with permanent Lock Tite.Now when I say its…See More

"I'm having a knocking from the boom while sailing. The track on top of the boom is loose, but it can't be tightened any further. Has anyone else had this problem, if so has anyone found a solution"
