Sailor Jerry!

Since I've become a sailboat owner and lover, I've begun to notice things that I didn't before.  I've started to notice anything that has a theme of boating or tropical living.  Therefore, about a year ago when I walked into the local liquor store to buy a bottle of wine, a particular…

Sailing Can Improve Your Health (full article)

The health benefits of sailing vary for each person, but did you know that sailing can improve your health? Sailing can be a great cardio workout, sometimes even more than other activities such as softball and tennis. According to Glamour.com, a 130 lb. woman can burn approximately 370 calories while sailing for two hours, and a 160 lb. man can burn 450 calories.



Sailing can also increase muscle strength and muscle endurance, which can help your body burn more calories, even at rest.… Continue

What is O.K. anyway?

For more than ten thousand and sixty five days I had one person who I admired more than any other and who admired me. Regardless of how annoyed we would become with each other he would put his arms around my waist and whisper, "It's O.K." Even when I dropped an outboard motor into the deepest part of the channel in the ICW after he had spent endless hours rebuilding it, he put his arms around my waist and said, "It's O.K." Then he muttered something about expecting me to purchase a new one.…

Sailing in Florida -- a bit warmer than Virginia

So, your feet got cold. Mine got cold too on Christmas Day while anchored at Manatee Pocket in Port Salerno, Florida.

But this week-end the Sassy Sailors from S3 (as in S cubed), did a 24 hour round trip sail from Palm Bay to Vero Beach. The weather was near perfect - our first night's anchorage just north of Sebastian was delightful, the calm wind shifted ever so gently a full 360 degrees by first light which made the hourly anchor checks interesting. After a casual wake up and sail…

Do this, do that,

Do this: spend an hour cleaning out my husband's office so I can make it mine.

 

Do that: get a rubber maid bin to store the non-racing essentials for SPRAY easily.

 

Do this: organize a match racing team for next week-end.

 

Do that: go to the Stuart boat show next Sunday.

 

Do this: walk over the bridge with neighbor

 

Do that: baby my smashed toe - the one that careened into a block of wood while walking down the…

interesting and disgusting challenges

My last blog contained pix of Flat Opti Saing Stanley and the rest of my crew, DanDee Bear and Sammy my dog. I e-mailed many friends and all of them replied that they were unable to open the pictures. I don't know why; I just opened the blog and all the pix were there.

Back at home I heard the little mouse sounding foot prints or gnawing near my front door the other night. Then, last night I heard the same sound outside my bedroom in the same area as previously heard. Now, tonight as…

In the Blink of an Eye!

This post is from our web site, and pretty much sums up what we've accomplished in the past year, which was a lot including hauling out our Catalina 30 and doing a bunch of stuff to her ourselves.  2010- Our Life

radar systems

I want to purchase a radar system for my Beneteau 361. I already have a very reliable Navman 5500 Chartplotter, GPS system that I'm happy with, however I know nothing about radar or what exactly I need.  I don't think the Navman has radar capability, so I need a receiver and dome that just handles radar.  Should I consider a second backup chartplottrer GPS with a new radar system that I purchase?  I'm interested in doing this in the most cost effective manner possible, so I don't know if…

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
