D4 Inside Seams

Day two of the dinghy build started out with me finishing wiring the hull bottoms together on the centerline of the bottom panels. This was much easier than the wiring of the chine edges of the bottom panels and the side panels.

D4 Dinghy Day One

A Wharram Pahi 26 had been anchored in the river nearby the boatyard and was hauled out with the travel lift. I went around to look at it and talked to the owner couple. I was surprised that it had been built in Martinique in 1988. The boat is more than 30 years old.

D4 Redux

The inflatable (deflatable) dinghy I had bought was deteriorating. It had bottom seams separating. It is a West Marine branded dinghy made out of PVC. HH66 is the adhesive to reattach the seams. A friend had a similar problem and bought the same adhesive. I was waiting to hear from him how it worked [...]

The Clincher

We decided to go to Amelia Island for the day, probably to the beach. Our plan to cycle around on the Raleigh 20’s seemed like a bad idea, Bleu can’t keep up with a bicycle for very long and when he quits he quits. So we would walk, where?, Fort Clinch State Park. She has a forever pass for Florida [...]

Zen and Bike Maintenance

Eloisa rolled into the boatyard after a long drive down from the mountains. It was getting cold and isolated up there. I had a nasty toothache and we went to Southern River Walk. Bleu, her black American cocker was showing a bit of plumpness. I had had a sandwich and some wine already, so I didn’t [...]

Sink the Bismarck

I continued reading Richard J Evans - The Coming of the Third Reich. It is chilling to read how a cultured, disciplined country can descend into a horrible Armageddon, not once, but twice, and bring the whole world into wars of might and ignorance. I don't know politics, but this book is a revelation. [...]

Winter's Onset

Capn Andy/cold
It seemed like November hit us with more than just a cold snap. There was a rush to winterize the boat and secure things down at the dock. I felt very unmotivated. When the weather warmed a bit, not much got done down there.
.
Then the Thanksgiving holiday came around and my daughter came down for a visit from New York. I was interested in how she would react to the upgrades to the catamaran, because she had gone on a little trip on it before the recent interior work. She got a good look at the boat and the bunk she had slept in. We made plans for another visit when the weather warmed up in the spring or summer.
.
Meanwhile it seemed like a good time to retreat indoors and read a few books on the Kindle and get familiar with it. Also the proa design was far enough along to make a model.
.
Down at the dock I pulled the 420 dinghy out of the water and set it up on its gunwale to keep it drained of water and prevent any ice damage to it. Now the docks were secure for winter.
