    First two weeks of living aboard / Tunes at sea

    It's been almost two full weeks of living aboard Delightful now, here on Bainbridge Island. I still feel like I live in a fairy tale, most of the time. The Island itself is idyllic and gorgeous,...

    Venerable Sailomat 3040 for Venerable Sailboat

    Every proper cruising boat needs a windvane self-steering gear. Right? This is one of those things I thought I'd go full-mad-scientist on, some time in the future when other needs were taken care...

    Bulk Head Repair

    The bulkhead had about 2'x1' area that was rotten. It was so soft that I could poke my finger into it. Not exactly what you would hope for from a structural member of the boat.

    Unfurling problem

    Get out the binocs and take a look at the head of the sail. The top of the rollerfurling rig has a ball bearing race in it in between the halyard attachment

    All fuel in the Bilge...

    Shoal draft offshore

    Shoal draft offshore

    Bringing the discussion out of an ad for a particular boat, I have a question about willingness of people to take shoal draft boats offshore. I have a

    Wax on the deck?

    Well, don't wax the nonskid surfaces, which on my boat are some sort of indestructible paint.

    But goodness, yes, I have the decks waxed
