    The Mighty Tillermaster – Autopilot On A Budget

    Among the items the prior owner of my first sailboat left for me when I bought it was an amazing little auto steering device called a Tillermaster. Over 10,000 of these grey, boxy little...

    Tomorrow I depart Marina del Rey for Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii. I am sailing solo, and looking for a passage of 22-25 days--or better, of course. The GC course is 2200NM, or 2500 statute miles.

    I note that another blog here has illustrated a much nicer way to carry more diesel than my, um, traditional one -- light lines and lots of knots!

    Re-bedding chain plates

    Re-bedding and inspecting the chain-plates for the shrouds is another item off my master list. It has been a worry that I have been carrying around in my head for the last several years. I decided I...

    A slight revision is necessary to what I wrote above. It's the port scupper aft of the cockpit divider which was routed around the tank. The port scupper

    Ballard sails

    I never updated this. I ended up having joe make me a new main and a asymmetrical spinnaker. Both of which are top notch and the quality is amazing.

    Thanks Walter
