Are you affected by the oil spil?

Like oil outside your boat? Or more like it is miles away from where you are?

The sailing season is year round if you want my input but most people want the sun shining before they go out. I'm trying to get all the kids out of the house and go live on the boat ......... would make me sooooooooo happy :)

Thanks for accepting me as a friend.
At least you are tied up to a dock, .... I hope!
I also hope your boat hasn't been damaged by grounding.
Which makes me worry a bit about how my boat is fairing at Legend Point.
I'm bouncing around in a ship that's being tossed about like a cork in a demented food blender.
Still, this means a "relaxing" day for most on board, as we can't work in these seas.
Hope you make a complete recovery soon. Let's hope for some decent weather too.

Hi there Erica, love the name of your boat. Many thanks for your help and advice on the Decks. Charles and I fly over to the UK at the end of April/May to see "Freedom" and check her out. There has been a lot of work done to her, decks refurbished completely, rudder dropped and resleeved, topsides redone, electrics and fridge gear restored, engine overhauled, windlass (this had to go up to Scotland to an engineer who was the only chap in the UK who serviced our particular one...!!) etc etc the list grew quite a bit!! so there will be quite a bit of sea trialling to do. The whole thing is very exciting for us, so will be able to add to our story in the not too distant future.

Are you sailing at the moment, or with winter at your end of the globe, are you laid up? Anyway, thanks again, and check you later. Cheers for now. Susie.

Good to hear you are almost recovered.

I am on my boat till Monday Noon I would be pleased to show you our marina.
We will start the repair of the marina 8/1, so you could see the before and the after. We have 212 slips and if you count me living hear Thursday thu Monday noon we have 30 to 35 live-a-boards.

Sometimes when it's convenient I would like to see your Cape Dory.

Jason came to my boat this Saturday and fitted the Radar mast. I can pick it up Thursday and complete the installation, Hopefully, next week-end.

Take care.....Jay

How are you doing? (recovering ???)

Hi Erika,

Good luck in your dinghy repair.

Are you using Epoxy Resin or the Polyesther or Vinylesther Resin? Epoxy is more expensive, but will stick to the other two. Where it may not be the case when the original is Poly and you want to repair using Vinyl (or vise versa, I can not remember which way).

Not one of my own. I use my fathers 41' morgan a lot.

What material is the row boat? Timber or plastic like the Zodiac?

Yes, post it in Zen, then everyone can contribute to solve the problem.

Hi Ocean Girl,Thanks yes this is my Yara a live aboard for almost 2 years now. A Tancook whaler design, I've really been enjoying restoring and fixing her up. I'm still experimenting with my electric orange sailing canoe, the mast wasn't strong enough so am working on a larger one also a spinnaker sock but not sure how carried away I want to go with it. Well I want to get totally carried away with it but then I think it will be so loaded down and might not be able to handle the stress. I had a fire in the canoe on the 4th, cooked up a dozen oysters. there's more pics of Yara at I like your pictures also, that's very kind of you to share your vessel with winged ones~smiles~ Kent

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
