Autumn Borne Cruising

CSY-44 Antigua - Hull 001

No Name Harbor - Key Biscayne

08 February 2013 | Key Biscayne
Dean - Sunny 82F WARM - Swimming weather
Feb 8th, 2013 Friday.

Today we moved a whole 0.233 minutes of Lat/long… We moved from our anchorage outside of “no Name harbor” to an anchorage INSIDE No Name Harbor.

N25 40.627 W080 09.792

A lot of the boats that were in here yesterday, when we came over from Dinner Key… left this morning to cross the Gulf Stream… so there was a bit of room, before the “Cuban navy” arrived for the weekend parties.

I did wax both sides of AB, above the rub rail, this afternoon… then went swimming… Granted it was weird going swimming at the same time that the news was reporting the cancelling of thousands of airline flights, and the cancelling of train travel north of NYC… (blizzard conditions… 70 knot winds coming off the ocean….right toward the victims of Hurricane Sandy…. Big OUCH!!!

This morning we defrosted the freezer, and did a few boat projects…. The boat STILL has a lot of “stuff” that is Not properly stored for big seas…. Perhaps tomorrow…

We almost had the Dailey’s drive down to No Name tonight… but Donna had to work late… Bummer.

The s/v Rhiannon did have some good luck this AM; They found a Kohler dealer that understood the raw water pump problem, and advised Benny NOT to buy a “replacement” pump and sheave…but a new and REVISED pump /bracket/ and sheave….(mainly revised because of ‘so many failures’ of the original design.

AND…they talked to the Xantrex factory on the west coast, who advised them to disconnect the power to the Link20 Battery Monitor system… and allow it to “re-boot”. That WORKED… It now works.

Rhiannon moved back to a Dinner Key mooring… to wait for the new Kohler Part. We’ll probably sail back over there tomorrow… The sails are still uncovered and ready to set…. Just need a reason to fly them… maybe tomorrow.

We are anchored only feet from where we met Rodney and Suzie (s/v Glenlyon) some 6 or 7 years ago.... wow... How things have changed, YET stayed the same....over these past years....
