omens and weirdnesses at sea...LOL

we were minding our p's and q's,  as we  raised the mizzen in  sd, it was already ripped---  was not  ripped   when  inspected at dock....strange..number one...

 we  sailed on th e prefrontal winds  as far as salsipuedes, then , as one ofmy crew loooked like death,  i decided to  turn into  ensenada.....   we were, at that time, in calmer waters andlss winds-- turned on engine--- as we motored   at  course heading 130, in calmness, the ships bell  decid to fall to the deck--!!!!!!!!

 ok--  we continued into  ensenada,  caught the dock at botes juanitos, and tied up.  sleep was awesome!

 next morning we learned the port was closed  due to the winds being severe----  storm coming in--we just made it  to hide from it-- the front  stretched to  just south of turtle bay--- tooo far to run  in the dark  night  --we were smart to come in from it. we would have pushed boat and sick crew waaay too far---   

omens rock, and guardian angels  happen to  be real.......always pay attention not only to weather but also to the omens and weirdnesses given to ye-- we watched building seas and   freshening winds --

 

 we are gooood   to go thu or  sat, as new crew is  coming tue nite...rogue-ish waves happen for a reason and   gusts indicate the upcoming freshening. donot ignore these small warnings.

 

smoooth sailing !!!

"Mike, I have separate sprayhood and bimini, which is good for me. But I still like to have visibility over the sprayhood. I checked the Yachtworld but all B40 boats seemed to be fitted with the B standard sprayhood. Have to make a new sprayhood…"

Simo Makkonen replied to Simo Makkonen's discussion Oceanis 40 Sprayhood in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"That's right Harry. I normally also keep the sprayhood down but in some weather conditions it would be good to have it up and still be able to see over it, not through the windows. Lowering the standard sprayhood by 10 - 15 cm would be good for…"

"Simo, not sure if I can find any pictures but will look. I will tell you that our dodger has 5 separate clear panels. Each can be detached and removed to allow for better ventilation or left in place for maximum protection. The canvas roof of the…"
