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.

Kitchen cabinet pegs loose!

We have a beneteau 40 2009, in the kitchen cupboard there are pegs in one cupboard to organize dishes and plates etc.Strangely the pegs are very loose, don't fit the holes well so don't really stay put to keep the dishes in place.Can other owners say if their pegs are also very loose? Are they meant to be glued/sikaflexed in place?What other solutions have been tried to get them to stay put?…See More

Bow thruster goes off

I am experiencing a problem with my bow thruster on my Beneteau 43. There was a post earlier on with the same title posted by Frank but there is not the way it had been sorted. I have noticed that my bowthruster works ok on idle but then as I increase the revs the indicator lamp in the button of the control unit starts flicking and then it switches off. I have fitted brand new batteries and had a couple of attempts by technicians to fix this at quite an expense without positive results. I am…See More
