PETE GOSS - WIND ROSE INTERVIEW





Welcome to the Wind Rose, the exclusive interview series created for the SeaKnots community. By taking a 360-degree approach, Wind Rose interviews consist of eight questions, each coming from a different wind direction.



We are proud to launch this interview series with accomplished British sailor Pete Goss, who is about to set out on an epic sailing voyage that will surely inspire most of us here on SeaKnots.



Pete has built a wooden lugger and will… Continue

Not about a hurricane stalking O Town...what a surprise!

First off, my prayers go out to the people on the East side of Texas, especially Houston and Galvaston.



Mr. John Shasteen has posted some pics of the Yacht Club in Houston post Ike on the home page forum under Hurricane Ike. What horrible devastation. I was stunned at all the tremendous damage to the boats. Many of them were absolutely totaled.





Florida remains hurricane free for now as we continue to cross our fingers and toes. Sailing out on the Florida intercoastal… Continue

Waking up in a beautiful bay

Every day that I wake up away from the city chaos is a day that I take the time to enjoy and take it all in. Today for instance, the weather isn't beaming sunshine yet when I woke up and looked out the porthole, it was just magical.







It reminded me of the beauty life has to offer if you step back and take a few moments to appreciate it. Right now I am wondering why I asked that we leave Saturday morning instead of Friday evening. I lost the opportunity on… Continue

We are so blessed...looks like the hurricanes won't hit us...

Life in O Town is as usual. No hurricanes in the near future, anyway. That is a relief!



We are all keeping an eye on the weather all the time, of course. Who knows what tropical storms are out there waiting to turn into hurricanes? My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have had damage.



Hoping to sail this weekend. I will post some pics (I hope) of the Merritt Island bridge and thereabouts on the barge canal. I'll try to get a pic of the canal markers. I know the… Continue

Crossing our fingers and toes in the big O Town

Looks like Ike will skirt Southern Florida...and will probably not impact O Town weather other than some possible rain. We are, of course, still in the "cone of possibility" but the weather forecasters seem to have calmed down a bit about it...at least as far as its effect on Mickey Mouse land.



We are all crossing our fingers and toes. Another one dodged...we think....



The Eastern Coast of FL is beautiful today. I'll be out there sailing EW next weekend and am hoping for a… Continue

O Town starts gearing up for Ike

Looks like Mickey Mouse town is due to get some effect from Hurricane Ike. Hanna will pretty much miss us...spinning out fairly far east in the Atlantic...WE HOPE... Josephine doesn't look to be a threat to us, so that's somewhat less worry.



Ike is another story. He is predicted to hit the southern tip of Florida and we will FOR SURE get some major wind and rains the first part of next week.



This weekend will be spent doing the various chores one does when a hurricane… Continue

Hanna to whiz through and then it's Ike...but probably not Josephine...

People are getting ready in O Town for the hurricane tri-fecta, but not doing major prep for Hanna. She is due to check in and out quickly (and in very early Friday am and out by the end of the day) so we can all get ready for Ike! Latest update: Hanna to pretty much miss O Town...she's apparently pushed even more to the east.



Ike will be affecting us next week sometime...maybe Tuesday or so. Drat it...I'm not sure I have enough bread! :)

This is the one… Continue

Hanna decides to hang out and take a vacation in FL

Weather today in O Town was absolutely gorgeous. As Phillip Karney would say in the old time radio show Adventures of the Scarlet Queen..."Skies clear, winds fair".... Sunny and mild...just a real treat....even for those of us who reside here permanently. This will end early Friday morning when some of the outer bands of Hanna arrive.



I feel fairly certain the bread shelves at the store are pretty decimated. I already have my 4 loaves in the freezer should I NEED them...hurricane… Continue

Hanna is on her way...the forecasters say!

It has been a gorgeous sunny day here in the big O Town for Labor Day. No gusty winds and no rain today. HURRAY!!!



This will change later in the week as Hurricane Hanna comes to Mickey Mouse Land to visit....the western bands will effect our weather towards the end of the week, and EW will probably get hammered with rain again in Merritt Island. Managed to do a bit of leak-proofing for this storm, so am hoping that she takes on less water this time. I am praying so.



Bread… Continue

Mike Brown replied to Michael Cioffi's discussion Anchor motor in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike I assume it won't go down. There's a small green relay mounted on the engine just behind the alternator. Usually they fail so the windlass will either raise or drop the anchor. It's possible that it could cause it to quit working…"
