Hi Marcelle, you'll have plenty of time before you set across ocean...meanwhile you have beautiful waters where you are. Someday, I'd like to go there.

Hey its Erika
Yeah my parents rock! I am very proud of them:)
Mom, Dad, and I are total ocean lovers, while my brother is an space geek (he is V.P. of the Houston Astronomy club), and my sister is a mountains/wilderness nut (she canoes, hikes, camps etc). So we are a colorfully bunch :)
BTW-beautiful painting

That is exactly what my mom did, waited till we were all grown and as soon as I was out of the house, she was off on her adventure.

Marcelle,
My parents sailed around the world on a 37ft Tartan, (Mom wrote a book about it called The Oceans are Waiting By Sharon Ragle).
America is a great place to find a cruising boat, I would think that Oz has a lot too, why not shop in your area? are they more expensive?
Nice to meet you,
Erika

Hello Marcelle,
I just got your message. If you're planning to visit east of Toronto then you're not far from where we are.. We're about 4 hours east of Toronto.
Keep in touch and let me know when you're in our area.

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
