Re the missing portrait: for some reason it would not download. Sad because she was by far the most beautiful and scandalous.

When I post my blog to Facebook through a forwarder it drops all the CR/LF data. This is unique to my Facebook posts. All the other sites render it correctly. Is there a key sequence for a “hard” carriage return on the Fire?….. Blast from the past: in 1968 I operated an IBM 1620™ computer*. The operator console was an IBM Selectric™ typewriter. We amused ourselves by writing routines to make it loop “tab, tab, tab,tab, cr/lf.” Not quite as satisfying as it would have been with a full carriage. We were young, male, and stupid…….* I also walked 20 miles to school each day through a blizzard; uphill both ways……Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Quiet morning – tuning the rig

If you have been following my blog you know that I replaced all of Reboot s standing rigging in the past couple of months. I used swageless terminals (Hi-Mod) and discovered that after a few days of sailing they need to be re-tightened. At least the first couple of times while they set. For 7 of the cables this is not a problem. The fittings are out in the open, easy to see and tighten. But the last fitting is the headstay. The turnbuckle and fitting are under the furler. After a week of 20 knot winds we finally got a morning of calm. We took advantage of it to disassemble the furler, check the headstay (which was tight) and put it all back together. We then got out the Loos and static tuned the entire rig We should be ready for our planned departure for North Tonga (Vava u) tomorrow. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
