SeaKnots

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 publish. Now, I can't find it in Face Book or on my Sea Knots Blog.

More importantly, is that I am ready to organize a web page. My friend recently had one done and it came out really nice and is user friendly. I asked her to advise me, but haven't had a response yet. Any ideas on a software program, a website, or professional/amateur who can mentor me through the process. My summer plans are unscheduled it may be a good time for me to organize the website.

In three weeks I get eight in a row of total 'my time.' Also, I am researching a simple type of radar or 'see me' widget to put on my tri. At the least I hope to do a few off shore voyages just to practice finding my way around out of land's sight. I clearly recollect my few nights off shore last summer. In the darkest hours I would spot a boat in the distance. With my light chart in hand, I found it much more difficult to determine the type of vessel in view than when sitting in Sea School classes. The biggest challenge was deciding if I was looking at a small boat close up or a large one far away. I tried radioing but no one ever answered. Hmmmmm,

Looking forward to your ideas. Thanks,

the Sassy One...

Try AIS. It's cheaper than radar and it will likely put a name, size and distance to that light in the horizon; at least if it's something big and not likely to get out of the way anytime soon. Plus, when you call a boat by its name you are more likely to get a response.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
