Boat Bite


This is why I always wear a harness, life jacket, and PLB (personal locator beacon) in the cockpit and on deck. I was leaning over the grill to work on something when the grill decided to tip over. It is attached to the safety rail. Over I went with it. Fortunately, I did the drop with the knees and stayed in Reboot. Scary. The tension on the harness was most welcome. I did not, however, emerge unscathed. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

The cruising life


The ultimate expression of the cruising life. Today i had to apply WD 40 to the spray head mechanism of my bottle of cleaning chemical so that it would function. Haha…..Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Via Inmarsat:

Into every life sone rain must fall. Today it was the front head overflowing. Enough said. The wind moderated at dawn. We put up the full main and jib. We rocked at 7 knots most of the day. Davyd spotted a sea turtle. He was about 100 yards from Reboot and then was gone. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company

Meeting the cruising life

Do you dream of the cruising life? Do you go to Annapolis and look at the boats and equipment? Would you like to know what it is really all about? From mid-October thru early November what may be the biggest annual collection of offshore cruisers on the East Coast will be gathering in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area staging to go South. Events that will draw them include: Hampton Snowbird Rendezvous
