Hi Derek,
I am soon to be retired after 38 1/2 years. I got drafted in 71, entered basic at FT Ord in 72. Been to Iraq twice,Mosul region, and Afghaniatan once, was pretty much from end to the other there. My body is shot, my mind is burnt out, I am definately ready for setting the clock to Island Time. Maybe we will get a chance to hook up on my way down. Leaving around 9 Oct down the ICW, I have 30 days leave to get to southern florida. I'll plan on spending a night there on the way down. Jeff

Hello Derek . Your work is wonderful. It's an inspiration.
I've done a bit of water colour over the years and have enjoyed it very much.

Hello Derek, Just had a quick look at some of your paintings. Brilliant! I am new to watercolour. Decided to give it a go after about a 30yr. layoff from oil painting. Bit tricky, but fun.

I had a look at your work, very nice. Do you get our sailing very often? I am heading down to Florida to visit my brother soon. Hope that the weather warms up a bit.

Hi Derek,
Lovely paintings. Good luck with them. Unfortunately I will need miniatures to fit on my boat. I am currently trying to decorate with my own small photographs. (very little bulkhead space.) I have been trying to convert my books to CD's or some electronic book reader. Electronic picture frames might work, but I have very little power on my boat. But, thanks for contacting me. Do you get out to sea?

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
