Gee's been such a quiet hurricane season!


It is so nice to hear the weatherman say that the "tropics are quiet." This has been pretty much a quiet season. Florida used to get a lot of those, but this is the first time for a while that it has been so calm for so long. Gee, we are only up to Fred on the naming.

It means that O Town residents don't become complacent because there may be one just around the corner hiding, but we aren't so anxious...nervous....worried....or whatever! No fighting over flashlights and batteries. [don't laugh, it happens] I remember when people would sit in the parking lots of places like Home Depot or Ace hardware waiting for a shipment that was due for generators.

Hurricane memories. We all have them. And the T shirt too.

Hope everyone is sailing more that I am. Work schedules and illness have kept me off the water for a while, but this weekend is looking good for sailing in town on Lake Fairview now that my son has caught the sailing bug. This is a good thing since he sails Endless Wind, and when hubby and I moved up to the Owl, we did not want to sell EW. Best of both worlds!

Lake Fairview is a great in town marina...check it out here: Cynthia and Jay are the best! And so is Jim!

Next weekend am hoping to sail the Owl. Crossing my fingers and toes for that!!!

Hope everyone is staying safe and dry.

Yes, it's true the hurricane season isn't over. However, Florida tends to get hit with storms in July and August. I'm still crossing my fingers and toes 'coz it isn't over...FOR SURE.

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
