Bye to Ana and probably to Bill!

Claudette left the party early and caused some major damage in the Florida panhandle and Alabama. Praying for you all.

Looks like Bill is going to cut up the way eastern part of the US, and won't hit land. Ana is now a tropical depression near Jamaica, but won't affect Tourist Town other than some rain as she swirls up on the western side of Florida.

Hope everyone is staying safe and dry. It's getting to be a pretty busy least for now!

And Claudette joins the party...

However, Claudette is going North up the state of Alabama having originated in the far north eastern Gulf. Projected to hit the panhandle of Florida first. Guess she doesn't want to join the party with Ana and Bill.

Bill's path is putting Florida possibly in its path also. At least this is the storm the weather people are talking up during the weather forecasts. Ana is still predicted to go up the Gulf also, and as stated before, the back bands are due to come up the state. Gusty… Continue

And now it's Bill!

Actually, the way that the NOAA has the storm going in the 5 day cone is projected up the east side of Cuba. Too soon to tell where it will [or may not] hit mainland of the US, depends on how strong the storm becomes.

Ana is of more immediate danger to O Town as the 5 day cone has the storm headed north up the western part of Florida. It looks like we will be the back end ot the bands. This means that we will see a lot of rain come Friday and Saturday of this week.

Here comes Ana!

After a really quiet season, the first named Tropical Depression now has a cone of potentially hitting Florida by the weekend.

Sea Owl is ready to go sailing (didn't happen last weekend....long story! LOL). Hubby will be driving over to the marina on Monday to tie down and make sure the Owl is as ready as possible for strong winds and rain. Endless Wind on her trailer will need to be examined as well to make sure she will be all right too.

Drat it! The first… Continue

Can anyone say "the best laid plans....?"

So, here I am ready, willing and able to get out on the Owl a week ago for her maiden voyage...but which didn't happen due to schedule conflicts and all sorts of hurdles in the way!

First of all, hubby's work put him on-call for a weekend (and this never happens). So sailing was out. Poor guy. He had to endure my conniption fit...and it was a DOOZY!!!

After that, we found out that our dear friends, Hans and Sue, sold their 27 foot sailboat, the Osprey.… Continue

"I had to replace my sheeve on both sides and really struggled to get the bolts out. Once I had them out, each was bent thus the challenge. I ended up stripping one or two of the hex bolts and used an angle grinder to square off the head of the bolt…"

B43 Traveller

The starboard side of my Traveller is starting to lift up. I am guessing to remove the center 5mm Allen bolt that goes through the middle of the sheeves, although I cannot get it to budge, to access it. Does anyone have any experience with this??Thanks Dave B43 Shore's AdriftSee More
