Hi Bobby,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I am not online that often. Yes the Sea of Cortez "used to be" Giant Manta country, but the fishermen killed most of them off.......go figure, you cannot eat them, they would be like eating an elephant......yuk. They make far better friends! No I don't have a web page.

Hugs, Terry & Tigger

Hi Bobbie,

Sorry it has taken so long to get back.....I don't check into this site much at all.

I named my boat "MANTA" after having dove with these beautiful being for a long time, and being underwater, and looking up at MANTA made giving her the name easy......she looks just like one from below.

About a Website.....hummmm, I haven't a clue how to even get one started.

The Giant Pacific Manta's in the Sea of Cortez are almost gone. They have almost been wiped out by the Mexican fisherman. I know of only two near Catalan Island, and they have noticable harpoon scars and are very shy!

Thanks Bobbie for your letter!

Hi Bobbi...u asked about my sidetrips in SouthAmerica. No moto in Chile because the completion date of the Atlantic 57 I was there to deliver to San Diego was too much up in the air.

As far as the K2 base camp climb from the China side, I nixed that because of the sad economy. That trip would have cost me over $12k.

So I'm sitting tight and waiting for a delivery job.

Once the economy turns around, my next adventure will be a 3-4 month motorcycle trip through South America.

Thanks for the update on the sunken ship. It's been many years since I did any diving. When I was in my early 20's I worked for a diving supply shop but then had to get a real job.

Yes, I can certainly see the crew working hard so the owners can play. I have often though I should have really explored that option when I got out of the Navy...while alll my seatime and skills were fresh. Now studying for my Capt exam so I at least have a few more options. Going to work the Corp life for a few more years (till daughter out of school) then see what's there for alternative income sources.

Mostly just local cruising for now. Working hard to get the kitty stocked so I can do some extended cruising. You have quite a resume...envious.

Hello Bobbi, Sorry I did not get to respond to your earlier message, shame on me.....
Yes the Freedom's are a real easy boat to sail with the self-tending jib and quite distinctive without stays. We keep the boat at Taylor's Landing.

Hi Bobby,
Thanks for the note.
I see (like all the other good people here) that the infliction for sailing goes to the bone with you also.
Sweet list of places visited.
My places were more like a migratory pattern doing the same regattas over the years. Were your places visited on one long extended cruise, or visits to cruising charters or friends?

Hi Bobbi
Well it looks like we may soon be neighbours, I just took on a project at NOB and am moving down to tidewater (whoo-hoo) don't know if I will be be at Little Creek or Willoughby, I was in Little Creek last Thursday, bunch of us started for Bermuda then took a pounding coming down the bay, Cracked the hull, didn't know it at the time then lost our alternator about 140 miles out, spent a couple of days just drifting with the gulf stream, then made for beaufort, winds picked up to 25 knots so we stayed in beaufort everyone jumped ship so my son and I started out last Monday, we lost a bolt in the engine and lost our oil so we went under sail, finally after 36 hours of fighting a nor-Easter we caved in and called the USCG they sent out a helicopter and then two ctters arrived, we got the leak under control got the engine started however an hour after everyone left we lost oil pressure again, (that was when I found the missing bolt) thank goodness for JB Weld, fixed that and limped back to Little Creek, filled up with oil and walked over to the food Lion, That whole area has changed, and came on back up the bay, almost called you but then I remebered you were busy, anyway things are fixed etc and I will be starting a new job on November 15th,

Hi, I see you are also in the Women's group. How far are you from Myrtle Beach, SC where Lola has her boat? I'm considering her offer to visit and help sail during Thanksgiving weekend .... why don't you touch base with her and perhaps we can all coordinate. Could use the extra knowledge, experience and hands :)

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
