Ay, forget relaxing; who can relax at a time like this. The housing market is sinking which puts my investments on par with a dear friend who lives in the buy hi, sell lo world of bad decision making. Its not my fault the country's economy is killing the locals due to cuts in the space program. Maybe it is my fault based on my voting habits. Either way, today was my first day of real retirement. While my colleagues went back to school I spent 14 hours organizing for a sailing departure of Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. For the next 7 days I expect to keep up this pace. After all I want to meet up with a special friend. Even moreso, I want to go cruising!

There's still the rudder issue, solar panels to secure, a new vhf to arrive and install, untangle the main halyard atop the mast, get the bottom cleaned, provision, order the portable fridge, meet with my broker, take care of banking, visit the tax appraiser, sign up for St. Brendan's mail service, get banking in order, rid house of furniture and other ditties that have not sold,  buy some tools, pack stuff for storing at my friend's house (or ship to my sister), and keep remembering my preference to be pursued. 

With the holidays over, the alcohol drained from my system, and the last hoorahs with friends and colleagues, to heck with ehrlika, I say; its time to charge full speed ahead. 

         HAPPY NEW YEAR,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

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
