Block Island

14 July 2016

Monday 7/11
I drained and flushed both Racor filters. Now that the fuel in the tank had settled after the trip from AC I took another sample from the bottom of the tank. The fuel was not clear but somewhat cloudy. No solid sediment. It was so fine that when I replaced the 2 micron engine spin-on filter I saw some of it in the fuel that I drained from that filter. I finally changed the engine and transmission oil and engine oil filter.

Drinks (and “dinner”) at The Oar.

Tuesday 7/12
As I planned to stay a few days in Block Island I assembled the Ampair wind generator and hoisted it in the rigging. During the day the wind shifted somewhat and a Catalina that was anchored nearby on nylon rode and that was swinging all over the place came too close. I re-anchored at a safe distance.

Drinks at the Oar where I had a nice chat with Howard, a dentist from Bucks County.

Thursday 7/14
Block Island. Very windy, good for the Ampair! I installed a USB port at the chart table. Now I don't have to use a cigarette lighter converter anymore to charge my cellphone and tablet(s). Later it appeared that every time I plug in a phone or tablet to charge it interferes with the VHF!
