Pulled Pork and Cole Slaw

I worked on the fuel tank and finished applying fairing mixture on the port side of the port hull, below the waterline. The fuel tank was coated with epoxy and sanded, then painted with rustoleum enamel to protect the epoxy. I was told that it wasn’t necessary to wet sand the epoxy into the metal, [...]

Goodbye Art Bell

The work on Kaimu was delayed by the little "20 hour" dinghy project. I was hustling along, but careful not to make any mistakes. Some were saying they hadn't seen me working like this. I knew I was trying to make up time lost, but fortunately, my normal pace doesn't have to be accelerated that much [...]

D4 at Rest

After 3 coats of gloss white had been applied to the dinghy hull I left it to dry while we went out for burgers at the gas station restaurant. The hull was dry to the touch when we returned and I removed the masking tape, turned the dinghy upright and removed the masking tape and plastic from the seats. [...]

D4 Paint Job

After the interior of the dinghy got its last coat of epoxy, the foam pieces that fill the voids under the seats were forced into place. One of the bulkheads that is the aft seat riser for the midships seat was bowed inward and the foam pieces forced it out straight. Good. Now the foam pieces had [...]

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.
