Ay Jeepers Ka Deepers

Jeepers Creepers where did all this dirt and grime come from, not to mention leaves and trees and pollen, and weeds, and dirt, and boat scum? Yuk, I've spent more time cleaning this past week and I still have a long way to go. It all started when a friend agreed to help with yard work for a nominal fee. Three of us spent 8 hours raking, trimming, and carrying debri to the curb on a beautifully sunny day. I was so determined to get the yard clean I failed to take water breaks and by Monday…

That time of the year

Well, it's that time of the year we all look forward to. Friday we hauled S/V Anna Lynn, washed,sanded, on Saturday the first coat of bottom paint was applied, and today Sunday the second coat of bottom paint, touch-up to the boot stripe, and installed the zincs before being lifted into the travel lift. Tomorrow at 0730 it goes back into the water, turrns out to be a fast and furious four days. There is nothing like sailing on a boat after a new coat of paint, how it slides through the…

Healthy Addictions,,,,,

Looking for a new lifestyle, maybe change from an extroverted socialite to an introverted recluse. It's quite an experience as I find myself spending more and more time at home taking time to trim the hedges, organize my files, and keep the floors spic 'n span. Passing up two opportunities to sail in local events that just a few months ago I would not have thought of missing made me realize what an addiction sailing can be. . .

A/C thru hull caution!!!!!

Caution, in flushing and cleaning the A/C strainer this weekend, I was reattaching the hose to the nipple coming from the raw water thru hull.  In simply re tightening the hose clamp the nipple sheared off.  Then in trying to carefully unscrew the remnant threads that screw into the 90 elbow they completley crushed.  It looks to…See More

"There is probably a spec sheet on the Cascade 29 bridge clearance, but it would only be an estimate, since it depends on where your specific boat sits on its "designed" waterline and assumes your mast is the standard height. Some boats are…"
