For the Lady who Claims I am CRAZY

People say I'm no good, I'm crazy as a loon, cause I sail a 3 hulled sailboat and cruise it all by myself....
 
My apologies to Charlie Daniels for the minor plagarism but I got carried away with the confidence that comes from stepping outside my comfort zone while pursuing some fangled idea that has plagued me most of my life. No one in my family, immediate or ancestory, has had a kinship with the sea except for me. Where it came from I have no idea. When my…

I am HOME

Several bloggers have asked me where I am so I guess I need to clarify. I am home. Home in Indialantic in my nice concrete block, with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths,  living room, den, converted dining room to a reading room, kitchen, laundry room, two car garage, sewing area, and inground swimming pool. Aye, the good life. This is my home where I organize my sailing trips. What used to be day sails and races has become more intense long term sailing adventures as you all know.

The longer…

Sweet Smell of Success

Wit h the whole Bermuda trip a part of my personal history it is amazing at how life's little toils catcth up. Some might call it the old grind, but the heck with the Negative Nancy attitude. Every single moment whether you are out at sea, wrestling with your garage door that managed to get stuck between your car's bumper and its trailer hitch, or simply lazzing about a backyard swimming pool, there is joy.

Take today for an example. after waking up to soothing ool shower I realized I…

boat chores

Down to the marina early Friday morning to get started with boat chores.  First big effort was to remove a seriously rusted shackle from my secondary anchor rode.  I took it up to the marina’s shop to use my drill and cutting wheel to slice through a chain link as the shackle was so badly corroded that I couldn’t dismantle it.  Once that project was finished I carried the…

Well, 6 months ago, we announced that we were going to attempt the Pacific Cup, if we were declared cured of cancer. This week on Monday as well as Thursday for all intents and purposes, I was declared "Cured" of cancer and do not have to visit my doctor but annually for a checkup.

Befuddling Blog

This blog is crazy, or is it me. My last posting was repeated at least 3 times. Let us just hope my sail home from Bermuda to Port Canaveral is less bewildering.



The forecast for the next several weeks, per Chris Parker, is southwest winds. If you do not know where Port Canaveral is, can you make an educated guess as to which direction it is from this beautifully located island.



After a week of checking things out on the bermudian islands several things are noted.

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
