From Land to Sea

How did you transition? Did you sell your house? Did you sell your possessions?

I can sure use help with this. My retirement date is set for Dec. 20.

Anther two weeks or so

And, what have I accomplished? First, and perhaps most importantly I have a realistic view of my finances. Second, I have a serious concern about my boat's seaworthiness.

Ice Alert!

Not quite yet but will be pulling the CAL this weekend as the harbor comes out Oct 15. Tough to be leaving the Big Seawater but we will be back in in May,hopefully with the Morgan 300. My storage facility"the Port of Rock Falls" is already filling with sport boats and pontoons from the inland lakes for winter storage, even though the fall folage this year is remarkably colorful--sorry you warm weather folks can'tenjoy.

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
