I own and sail an Islander 37 sloop named Wandering Star. I have lived aboard her for twelve years primarily around the San Francisco bay. Her skiff is an Avon 10.2 RIB for getting to and from the beach. Other cool gear includes my Monitor wind vane and solar panels. The solar panels keep up with the electrical consumption. Cabin warmth is by Dickenson diesel heater, ships’ power a Perkins 4-107 diesel engine. Ground tackle includes a CQR plow, a Bruce, and a Danforth anchor. A Simpson-Lawrence 555 Sea Tiger windlass makes short work of anchoring chores. Sail inventory includes 3 jibs, two reef points in the main, and a spinny.

SUVA, Fiji – For more than 50 days, the three boys slurped rainwater that puddled in the bottom of their tiny boat, gobbled flying fish that leaped aboard and prayed for salvation.

Etueni Nasau and his two cousins almost gave up hope they would survive as they bobbed in their aluminum dinghy across the South Pacific for more than seven weeks, before a fishing trawler…

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
