Marlene A. Sassaman's Blog – May 2010 Archive (4)


Isn't it funny how once you learn something it becomes integrated into your life? Just a few days ago I became acqainted with the text message phrase "OMG." As luck would have I proceeded to lose $800 in cash that was contained in one of those little bank envelopes along with my driver's license and ATM card. Having just left the bank enroute to register SPRAY, then pay a friend for the work he did on her, I felt good that I had the money to pay off these little ditties..

Nasty Boat Ramps

Ever been told to wear shoes at the boat ramp? Ever not listen to what you are told? Ever have a sail mate think they know better?

So it was on Friday, May 14 when one of my crew and aspiring small boat racers decided to take her shoes off before getting out of her boat at the ramp. Seems she forgot she was told to wear shoes. Seems she also was clueless about the danger that lurks in the nasty, broken glass, oyster shelled, moss covered slippery ramp waters where we launch…

AIS , Word Press, and Getting Along with Others

Ahoy there mateys,

Just did some research on AIS. Like learning to sail, AIS has a language of its own. There is static and dynamic transmission. Does that mean fuzzy sounding versus a really terrific communication?

How about Furuno and Raymarine? Is Furuno related to King Furuk? Recently one was criticized for calling an autopilot an autopilot and not a Raymarine. Does that mean AIS will steer me away from danger?

Ay, here's a clarity. Digital…

Confused again

Here I am confused again. I was grazing my blog profile and other pages I am not always sure how I navigate to. None the less, a pop up box asked if I wanted to share my blog post on Face Book. Though I have two Face Book accounts, one under my name and the other under a boat I race (Fast Lane), neither are up to date. Regardless, I typed up a little message/story about my current situation, thoughts, and feelings, forgot to save it, and hit…

"Thanks Lynn.  The blocks do line up with the bung holes on the top side rails.  Looks like I'm going to have to just start taking it a part to see what I have. John "

"Thanks Lynn, My Oday is an '84 Oday 30.  It does have one or two white caps on the cabin overhead, but it also has an interior handrail that is mounted on black rubber blocks.  I removed a bung from one of the interior handrails and…"

"John, It depends.  What model O'Day are we speaking about?  Who put the rails on in the first place?  Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are?  If yes, the rails are…"

"Has anyone ever removed your handrails for resealing?  I have a leak and I'm not sure if I need to remove them from the topside or from below in the salon. "

Resealing handrails on Oday 30

I'm going to attempt to reseal my handrails on our 84' Oday 30.  I noticed there are screw holes (teak plugs) both on the topside and down in the salon.  Does anyone know if both screws need to be removed to reseal or just the topside screw?See More
