Hocus pocus, time to focus

No, it's not. It's time to get off my duff and get back into my fitness routine.

what is it?

Overeating junk food, while the vegetables go to waste. My fitness program has disappeared, and my energy level is again very low. I want to get away from drinking coffee, but it seems to be the only known beverage to keep me awake during those repeatitive IEP meetings I frequently have to attend in order to hopefully afford the voyage of a lifetime.. My love for SPRAY has dwindled. She needs a good polish and buffing. I'm too lazy to figure out how to work the electric buffer; don't want to…

Freshening Up the Non-Skid

I've finished painting the non-skid on my lockers with KiwiGrip, a product from New Zealand described in the January 2011 issue of Good Old Boat magazine. Here's my experience:

Life Continues to Be Good

Wow, it's been two whole days since I posted my last blog titled, "Life is Good." It seems like a record that 48 hours later I can still claim that "Life is Good." Sure, sadness is a part of life. Sadness, though, makes us appreciate what we have had and what is yet to come. Take for example the Tree of LIfe. It was a gift from the faculty and staff to everyone, who has been loved and lost as a result of death, by a Palm Bay Elementary School Lil' Pirate. Each morning I park by the lovely…

Ay, life is good,,,,

At least for the moment life feels content. I reached my financial goal. In my checking account, from which I pay those nagging monthly bills, and in my daily spending account from which I buy boat things, grocerieis, widgets for the boat, clothes, registration fees for sailing events, maid service, boat cleaners, starbuck's, sailing gloves, dunkin' donuts, new sailing shoes, and well, you get the idea.

 

My sailing team, SPRAY's SASSY SAILORS had another bloopie race day last…

Teak treatment

Spent the weekend bringing the teak back to that ‘new’ look. Used products from a company called Onward Trading who supplied the active cleaner and neutraliser (stage one and two) and a coloured sealant from Semco.

Took a lot longer than I thought it would given that we don’t have a full teak deck, just the cockpit, toe rail and coach roof.

We like the golden honey colour while others like the aged silver look however the ‘teak oil’ we used last year must have contained linseed…

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
