The Monk Sails North

The question was why use the painting called “The Monastery” as the image on the last blog post. The answer is Webb Chiles refers to going to sea as entering the monastery of the sea.

Into the Monastery

Every once in a while I will look back at this blog of a year ago to see what I was doing then. I was wondering what the weather was like. It turns out it was milder, no surprise. I was working on the exterior of the boat and building the outrigger canoe.

Bon Voyage Crawdad

The cold snap, which is the coldest weather I have experienced down here in St Marys seemed to persist longer than forecast, about a week. It has been freezing overnight and most of the mornings, temperature going down to 28 on successive nights. This is nothing compared to what people up North are [...]

The Penguins Have Us

The coooold snap that is freezing us to death is only affecting the Keys a bit, maybe ten degrees less, so 50‘s and 60‘s instead of 60‘s and 70‘s, or 70‘s and 80‘s. The Keys and Bahamas are where to be in the dead of winter.

Happy New Year Chart Wrap Up

It is Sunday, New Year's Eve Day, and I have come down with a cold. My chart work is finished. I can't imagine going outside to work on the hull bottoms now. I may run out of paper towels to sop up my runny nose.

Surrender

When THE COMPUTER GUY was talking to me about running shell scripts to convert old charts I had mentioned I liked to manually crop each chart and save it from the image manipulation program. Every chart. He looked at me funny. The shell scripts are ways to do a lot of that manual data processing and [...]

St Marys Thanksgiving

Here again is the link to the flickr albums of the delivery trips, including this last one to Gulfport:

I am now back in St. Marys, it is night and there is no one about. It is raining on and off. The road trip from Gulfport was made more difficult by delays of a half hour or so due to accidents and road construction. It ended up over 9 hours. At one point I took an available exit to try to find a local road to bypass a delay that had us standing still. Skipper, who did most of the driving, was angry that I had snapped like this and took over the driving and we went back into the big delay. Of course it sorted itself out right away and I felt foolish. He is the skipper, more resolute and patient.
.
Now Thanksgiving has passed and a rainy chilly feast was held at Seagle’s Hotel, which is a bar and restaurant in St. Marys. About a hundred people signed up for the annual dinner, put on by the townspeople for the cruising sailors who are mostly on their way South. This year the number of attendees was down, probably due to the heavily damaged waterfront. The town provides the turkeys and hams and the cruisers provide side dishes.
.
The boatyard is very active this weekend with many yardbirds returning to launch and head South for their winter cruising. It is not the best time for one of the two bathrooms to malfunction, but that’s what happened. Now there is only one bathroom available for the crowd to use. Pick a number.

The photo is from the last leg of our recent delivery. I thought it was possible to right click on any photo in the uploaded album and save it, but it turns out you have to use flickr’s download function which includes selection of file size, so you can actually download the original photo if you choose the largest file size.
