Capn Ed called about crewing with him to bring a small sloop up from Annapolis to the Bodkin. Unfortunately I was having a bout of either allergies or the cold virus. I said I probably wouldn't be available, but he could call me with his cell phone and I would help if he got into difficulty. It looks [...]

The last posting was a trial of the new image size format. Also I wanted to see if Sailblogs fixed a problem of not automatically providing a smaller thumbnail when blog postings are displayed in the initial page when someone searches for your blog.

I think I bought this from a Black and Decker repair center as a refurbished unit. My other drill is a 3/8” light duty [...]

A shopping trip to Harbor Freight got us a new 1/2” drill and stepped bits to bore holes in the aluminum mast for shroud attachments. Over at West Marine, who are having a Big Sale, a couple of heavy duty straps to hang halyard blocks were purchased. At Home Depot I kind of zoned out while looking [...]
