I remember the name but cain't picture it. I'll look for it the next time over. I should be doing some work on her this week. My son is home from Iraq for the month. He wants to go sailing so ....... I'm seriously thinking about cruising to Settlement Point, Bahamas. It will be my first .... oh boy!
We don't live on the boat at the moment but that may change in the near future. never know.
We are located about half way down on the south side of the first dock ..... look for "Neptunes Toy" .... can't miss it. How about you folks? I have probably seen you around there .... maybe even talked to you (???). What slip are you in?
Did you say you are getting a boat? Did it go through? I took out my boat w a seasoned sailor, in 6 ft seas unexpected...It was frightful for me to say the least. I have posted some new pictures. Be in touch, your friend ..Lola
So, Fay isn't going to hit Orlando but Endless Wind [ my sailboat] is getting hit by major storms in the Merritt Island area. Orlando is going to get the west side bands....which means rain....and we need it!
Charlotte - thanks for the comment. I am doing work on my Westerly Cirrus and plan to take the Dismal Swamp route the fall of 2009. I really look forward to the adventure. I have visited Fla. several times, and plan on snowbirding for the next few years. I have been sailing since 2000 and have gotten a late start (59). I currently reside on my boat when not working 4 days each week. Hope to see you and your hubby out there some day. Carrie
Hey Gang, I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
