Another One In the Books

Just sitting here after another day of rain and wind, courtesy of Hurricane Ian. I feel very lucky it was not us that got hammered and very sad for the people that have had their lives turned upside down by Ian. What would you do…

Let The Games Begin

Man overboard training has begun! As I wrote last month, a little scare while out in bad weather made us realize that beside myself, someone else needs to have some basic knowledge of operating our boat. And so, on a beautiful quiet, wind free day…

On The Water

So far, after all the work I have done on the boat, it’s been a very good summer on the boat. Swimming and cruising on the bay have been an uneventful and pleasant experience. I have only had to make a couple of adjustments on…

Getting Juiced Up!

You know, electrified! On the boat! We have shore power on our boat, but no generator. This has limited our overnight stays on the hook to only a handful since owning this boat since 2003. A hot meal would be nice sometimes, coffee, cold milk…

Now Is The Time…

For so many things! If you own a boat, winter is a great time to take care of simple tasks like checking your safety gear, getting your toolbox in order and getting the fishing tackle squared away. It’s also a great time to get yourself…

Dream On

Well here we are in December and I am still cleaning up leaves, and there are still plenty of them left on the trees refusing to come down. This is becoming a problem as I have other projects to get going on! Over the winter…

The Party’s Over

Well, only for six months or so. Looking back at this past season time blurs for me. It came and went so quickly. The weather did not always have our interests at heart, and when it did my family could not always take advantage of…
