I really have been remiss in keeping up with this blog, but as usual life has gotten in the grand plan a few weeks back we sailed to the Farralone Islands for a good shake down cruise, sucking up a crab pot and sheering off the bolts between the transmission yoke and the flex coupler. These bolts don’t appear all that difficult but a machinist is required to produce them. With a little redesign to make them removeable and replaceable in the future we are …Continue
It was overcast today in Orlando...YAY! Weather is now taking a turn to rain most afternoons right around rush hour. It's not QUITE to that point, but rain will be coming soon at that time.

I love summer. Let me repeat that: I LOVE summer!!! It is my favorite time of year, even though it's not the best sailing weather here in the BEST SAILING STATE IN THE US!!! Wind is generally light. Yes, it's like you are being ironed when walking outside....but on the water it's always so much better. YEAH!
So, I am reading Tom Sawyer for about the umpteeth time this week. What a fabulously great summer book! Mark Twain was a GREAT writer, and Tom…Continue
