The Chesapeake Bay is a great place to sail spring, summer and fall.  It can get a bit cold and wet in winter so that is a great time to head south.  I am sure you know all this but having lived aboard in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Annapolis I was always amazed how many new quiet peaceful or fun places existed.  Enjoy each day.  Lola

I have several friends in Mexico along the Pacific coast and up into the Sea of Cortez. If I can finish my projects before the bad weather sets in along the western coast of the U.S., I would like to winter around Banderas bay and head up into the Sea for spring before the real heat establishes itself.

Thanks very much for the advice Ron, appreciate it.
We aren't going any where near POP and Yes we have up dated our shots.
I would love to talk to you and hopefully will get the chance on the way to Miami on Monday.
As you can imagine last minute is always crazy.
Take care

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
