BVI TRIP A GREAT SUCCESS!

Ahoy Friends,Well, we completed our BVI trip a couple of weeks ago......What a blast!! The eight of us went out for a week on a 45' cat, the Dodger II and it was tremendous. The British West Indies is wonderful. Great sunsets, very nice people and super conditions. (A little pricey at the restaurants - but we only ate off the boat 1 lunch and 2 dinners)Everyday was warm (82-85degrees), the water crystal clear and the wind was 10 to 18 knots. I sailed into a different cove every night. We did…See More

BVI trip starting in a couple of weeks!

Posted on December 14, 2008 at 4:15pm 8 Comments

As I said before, we (4 couples) are bare-boating a 45' cat for 9 days in January. We are looking for additional suggestions for great anchorages, great food, nightlife, caution spots, etc. We have received several ideas, and as it gets closer to the trip, I am asking for any additional suggestions that we should see.



Anything current that we should know would be greatly appreciated as well!



We love to party, and we also enjoy basking in the sun at beautiful… Continue

"My hose clamps also needed tightening last year after I overheated the engine after an impeller failure. I assumed it was because the hose expanded or the clamp was not tightened properly when the boat was built. Final-Lee Ben. 40, hull 182"

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. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…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
