    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

    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.

    Visiting and seeing other people's boats sounds great.

    Play in the wheel

    Is it a good idea to put a rectangular shape key instead of the standard 1/4 square key to solve a play issue in the wheel? It feels like a larger key

    All fuel in the Bilge...

    Sounds like he got most of it out from the last post.
