Leaving the door open

How many times have you been so mad at someone that you swore you would never sail with them again? If you've sailed with half as many people as I have then you know what I am talking about. Although there is one man who I believe I will never sail with again. Sorry folks but his idea dwelled on the disgusting side. Other than that there are probably a handful who I would prefer not to sail with and certainly do not encourage our sailing together.

Then, there are those select…

Time Passes

You probably have all heard the time analogy that goes something like this: when counting down to the start of an olympic race, five seconds can seem like an eternity; when you are 5 years old your birthday takes a lifetime to arrive. When you are in your sixties, holidays come around quickly. Similarly, I have learned eight weeks of vacation goes a whole lot faster than eight weeks at the office.

Good night for TV

What a great night for TV. Today I received my VANS one of a kind sneakers with Abbey Sunderland's date arriving in Cape Town (a place dear to my heart, having been there). Now, in about two minutes 20/20 is hosting a show on things kids are doing. One is some kid climbing a big mountain and another is Abbey. Gotta go get inspired. I may not be the youngest, so maybe I'll be the oldest lady getting around.

B40 Holding Tank Plumbing

Could someone please verify for me that the only way to pump out the holding tank is through the deck fitting?I do understand that if the Y valve is placed in the overboard position and the through hull is open, any discharge from the toilet via electric flush goes directly overboard (at least I think it will not pass through the holding tank).My concern is the ability to empty the holding tank while at sea should it become full during that transition time to go off shore.Thanks for any info…See More
