Well, we are in Grenada and have been here for a week. Yee Haw it is great to know that we don't have to go anywhere for a while. We had some great sailing days down the islands and saw a lot of places that we want to visit after hurricane season passes. Just heard on the cruisers net that the hurricane season has been downgraded again. Although we are now officially out of the box according to our insurance company, we still keep a close eye on the weather in case something develops. That's just a part of this sailing life that we are living.
Blue Heaven is in need of some TLC after months of sea journeys and Grenada is a good place to provide it. There are two large marine stores and they sell everything duty free to visiting yachties like us.
We are currently in Prickly Bay on the south side of the island. It is a little rolly to be a really good anchorage but not so bad that we have to move. Carnival is this weekend and we will move to St. George's to take in the festivities. Sounds like a really fun time.
Now I will have time to catch up on the blog and post some pictures of our adventures. Expect to hear more from me in the coming days. But not until after Carnival!
Take care, smooth seas and fair winds.
Jim

Mike Brown replied to Larry Witty's discussion B43 Windlass Drainage in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
