S/V Eleuthera II
Recently finished a career in the Fire Service. Should be able to enjoy the water more now. Just updated my USCG license and became an ASA instructor. Brand new owner of a CSY Walkthrough. Stay Tuned, progress updates and pics to follow.

Hard prep work continues. I'm done with the prep for the painter. Here is a pic of the hull prepped for paint with one coat of bottom paint and the teak re-oiled. I am hoping the weather cooperates and I can be done and in the water soon.

Work Begins

After a successful 7 months in the Florida Keys with the Boyscouts and other assorted trips, it's time to repay Eleuthera for treating me so well during that time. I've hauled her out to start the process of painting the hull and doing an assorted list of minor maintenance tasks.I have a very professional yacht painter doing the paint but I have the job of doing most of the prep work. I'll also be putting a new bottom job on her so she'll look great when I'm done. I'll post pics when done. Also, there may be a chance I think about selling her but not sure yet, just a thought for now.

On the hard in Marathon

Aug. 13, 2014 Had a most splendid solo sail from Seabase to Marathon on the bay side. Averaged 5+ knots on a beam reach. The only trouble I had was catching 2 lobster traps on the way down. They came off easily as I didn't have the prop turning. The second ball I kept as a souvenir ;~)... So now she sits on the hard in Marathon. The yard was a day behind schedule and couldn't pull her the day I arrived. I couldn't hang around and left her for them to haul the next day. My brother was down last week and went by to have a look and sent me a pic. Thanks Todd!
After some time off, the plan is to head for the Dry Tortugas!!!

Done at Seabase

Well I suck at keeping this blog updated. Oh well, it's not like I wasn't busy. The summer program season is over. I had somewhere around 80 boy scouts and leaders on board for the 5 day High Adventure Sailing program. All were very enjoyable weeks. We sailed, snorkeled, fished, hunted lobster and explored islands while enjoying the beauty of the Florida Keys. Until next year...

Off and Running

Today is the first day working at Seabase, a Boy Scouts of America summer camp for sailing, diving snorkeling, etc. in the Florida Keys. I'll be here until mid August running 5 day trips with the scouts from all over America. I'll post as I can pending internet availability. Should be a great time. It's hot but the breeze is steady but mild. Stay tuned.
