How time flies!!! Hurricane season is ALMOST upon us!

Getting myself geared up to do some serious blogging.

Hurricane season will be here shortly. A "light" season predicted. Only time will tell. O Town tends to get the hurricanes later in the season but there are always exceptions.

You know you can count on your VERY FAVORITE hurricane blogger to be on the spot, if possible. I am hoping the forecasters are correct but there's a reason they call it FORECASTING!

Several things to relate: Trading up to a larger boat [a Watkins 27 named Sea Owl] the first part of June. The hubby and I are very excited. YAY!!! Primo electronics on it too. I will post pics when we assume ownership.

Heard a fabulous singer here in Mickey Mouse town at my very favorite in-town marina, Lake Fairview. They had such a wonderful boat show in March. Major kudos to Jay and Cynthia. Such wonderful and gracious people.

Gary Ramey sang some absolutely wonderful Florida sailing songs at the tiki hut at the marina. Here's his website. ENJOY!!! Absolutely the nicest and talented man with a wonderful family.

Went out sailing this past weekend [see pics]. Wind was rather brisk, but managed to get in some decent sailing. When true summer comes it will be like a mirror on the water. That's the time to get out that boogie board and pop a cold one!!!

Hope everyone is staying dry and safe. I'll keep in touch.

For the first time in four years we put the boat on the hard here in FL and tied her down. Pulled sails, canvas, solar panels, and wind generator. Pickled the watermaker and removed all stores, clothing and "stuff" after three years of living aboard. Hope it's a peaceful summer season.

Call me a wuss but I'm now waitin till November to shove off. Actually still no excuse postponing other than I cant get my lazy arse outta bed to finish the house, much less a 12 pak. I now fear a big 'un reapin down on me as I sit here in a marina contemplating the forewarned.
Would still rather be out there honing my skills.

Carefull out there all!

I blog on this site about the hurricanes that effect FL (specifically Orlando and thereabouts)on this site. Other times I blog about sailing the intercoastal.
Thanks for the hurricane link...I will check it out.

Where do you blog about hurricanes? I'm newish to this community so I don't know. Do you post hurricane updates here?

You should check out the Hurricane Room on FriendFeed too. It's automatically feeding several hurricane sources into one place.

Varnish vs Teak Oil in Alaska (looking for advice)

Hey Gang,   I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
