A letter to my Courageous Crew

Dear Catherine, Meg, Robin, Sue, Sue Zee, and Susan,

While sailing in the drizzly rain today a conversation started about fear and how it holds us back. I said one of my approaches to bringing our team to the winner’s circle…

Sense of Humor Pays

Hats off (can't afford a prize just yet) to Steve Austin for his great money making scheme. Just as soon as I buy the truck I'm off to Mexico. On my return from Canada I'll drop off a prize horse at your boat dock.

I'm not sure if others can follow a reply to one's blog post. If not let me know and I'll challenge myself to figuring it out. .

Great sense of humor Steve, I love it.....Thankfully Wally mart is open all night so I can go buy that must needed shovel.

Guess I could heat up some spinach and sprinkle some fresh grated parm to enjoy a healthy treat. Unfortunately, I don't have an appetite. Seems like I have some kind of no energy bug that kept me on the couch all day. I couldn't even garner the strength to get dressed for work. Perhaps it is time that my 100% attendance at work ethic meanders down the path of I don't…

Taking the plunge, , ,

Step one, ready to buy as soon as I find what I want:



What I want is an ocean going multihull in the 35 foot range. As an experienced skipper of a Corsair F28, I have an idea of what to expect. Weighing the pros and cons of a tri versus a cat are on my agenda as is comfort versus speed. Typically, I favor speed over comfort but because my next boat needs to take me around the world via the Panama Canal and more temperate climates, being seaworthy and user friendly for single handing… Continue

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
