Still a great place to sail

Well, we got lucky when another Tropical Storm "Bonnie" fizzed out prior to landfall here on the gulf coast. It was a good news for an area still dealing with the oil mess however, this I expect was the first of several potential storms yet to develop this season. Even with this, it's still a great place to live and sail. Just remember "The Mississippi Gulf Coast is open for business"

Soul mate wanted

So where are the "single sailors" who are looking for a soul mate? So many on the single sailors list are couples! I've been sailing for 8 years and would love to find a "soul mate" to enjoy the ride with for long term.

Peace at last!

The past few weeks have been everything from ho-hum to downright explosive! Ho-hum is pretty self explanatory, explosive would be what happens when the clew tears right off the jib, the foot and leech open wide, and you still have 11 miles to make harbour in a 35knot blow and rather large steep seas! Just another day sailing in the caribbean during hurricane season! The sail got pieced back together, and (so far) has managed to hold together through a few more 30knot squalls. I guess my…

Either way, with my feathers ruffled, I wrote several seething e-mails, then deleted them when I realized I wasted my swimming hour steaming over trivial matters.

Being the glutten for punishment that I am, I read another e-mail. This one enthralled me. It was from…

Ready to Rumble

The Rumble Monster lives!

I had finally gotten the engine plumbed in; all hoses connected, new exhaust system with

water-lift muffler, a new raw water strainer and an an added

anti-siphon loop in the raw water circuit. There was also the new fuel

tank and all the hoses, filter etc.. I relocated the coolant tank while

I was at it. Then I poured five gallons of fresh diesel fuel into the

brand new Moeller 13 gallon… Continue

Now, on a more positive side. . .

In my last post I lamented about the challenges of selecting compatable crew. Having had three team members seek greener pastures, I was torn between frustration and disappointment. The disappointment arose when I questioned for a moment the consequences of my behavior which led to a divorce from a trio I had come to care about. The frustration was facing the challenge of seeking replacements. Fortunately, finding replacements was easier than I thought. Wtihin an hour any sadness I felt was…
