It was overcast today in Orlando...YAY!  Weather is now taking a turn to rain most afternoons right around rush hour.  It's not QUITE to that point, but rain will be coming soon at that time.

 

Hurricane season starts in 2 weeks...WOW!!!  I was reading the wikipedia article about the history of Orlando.  The article states that Orlando as the location of WDW was chosen by Mr. Walt Disney because it was inland more than Tampa (one possible choice) so hurricanes would probably not present major problems.  He was correct until 2005 brought Hurricane Charlie, which hit Orlando directly.

 

I found it interesting that there is dispute about how Orlando was named.  Here's the article link:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlando,_Fl  The city beautiful!  That's our motto!

 

I read another article about airports...Orlando's airport gets pretty high marks http://travel.yahoo.com/ideas/americas-best-worst-airports-01184142...  Other than the security lines are often long. 

 

Hope everyone is out there being happy and sailing!  Weather has been gorgeous for it here.  Having my boat bottom scraped (doesn't that sound kind of pornographic?  hahahahaha) this weekend.  It's always something!

 

Dreaming the life and living the dream.

Fair winds.  Stay safe and dry out there.

"My hose clamps also needed tightening last year after I overheated the engine after an impeller failure. I assumed it was because the hose expanded or the clamp was not tightened properly when the boat was built. Final-Lee Ben. 40, hull 182"

water in sump near shaft packing gland

I recently found water in the sump aft of the engine under the packing gland. Of course my first suspicion was the Volvo gland, but turns out that the water was coming from the entry to the water lift muffler. Tightening both hose clamps stopped the leak. I had never checked those clamps before as they were a bit out of the way, but I suggest that its worth the effort. I found that the aft wood partition on the engine compartment was easy to remove / replace and enhanced access. Took the…See More

Sailing on . . .

Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road.  To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
