Hey Papa Joe, did I hear the name of your boat on the radio in Georgetown the other day? Thought I heard someone call "Different Drummer". Are you in the area?

Hi Joe, I'm a member of SSSF. I had been a member very early on in the club (was at its first meeting), and then rejoined around 2001/2002.

Its near St Petersburg. Barrier Island I guess. Just got back from St Thomas in May. I love the water. And... I really like the Cats!

you are so good about sharing your experiences and being helpful to others with your interests. Self-discovery is an ongoing adventure, as you prove,.and resolve, key to achieving one's dreams.

you are to be congratulated on following intuition, and acting with daring. i believe we are regarding the cat that ate the canary. good example is not lost on witnesses. thank you.

yes, the photo reveals a handsome cat. i know it is your heart's delight, and with such a handle it's bound to attract a lot of adventure. thx for the tip about the license. having done no more than take a few schooner ferries in the Grenadines, i have done no sailing and need to start small to be sure that the life is really for me.

decking for a genial spirit would be perfect. once i get my sea legs and am convinced i can hold my dinner down in really rough seas, i can consider such sporting fun for a way of life, or at least for occasional passage in island hopping.

generally, i find myself bored with everything and am really looking for something entirely new to fire my engines and toot my whistles. if my personality will mesh with those of salts, then i'm on my way.

if you ever need company, and maybe a little green help, pull my string. i, too, am a 'philosopher' and fantasist.

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
