dAISy meets U-Blox

The idea was to make the most of the difficult weather pattern coming in, tropical depression maybe, thunderstorms predicted for every day. This has happened before here, and we sit around with our work areas covered from the rain, no way to get any work done. But I have some inside work to do, so [...]

dAISy Test

I noticed I was more active and anticipating the work day with more of a positive attitude. “Attitude is Everything, Dammit”. I’m not sure why I feel this way, maybe it is getting past the big bottom repair/repainting stage, or maybe it is the ETL, estimated time to launch. June 28.

Patriotic

The red ablative bottom paint was very thick but mixed up easily in a few minutes. The top edge of the red paint formed a boot strip with the top edge of the blue hard bottom paint above it (3 inches). The edge was masked off first with Fine Line masking tape, then the masking was widened with cheap [...]

Lava in Puna

We will allow the recent bottom paint to dry out for a day or two and do other things in the meantime. RG-58/U coaxial cable is coming in to make the collinear antenna for the AIS and maybe there will be enough to make two antennae. Another project is the small switch panel for the pilothouse which [...]

Blue Paint and Hokule'a

The fairing of the hull bottoms was going along quite well. I started with doing 1/3 of a hull side in one afternoon’s work, so a complete hull would take a week. We had rain, delays. I then did 2/3 of a hull side in a day, then completed that hull side the next day, and did 1/2 the other side the [...]

The Monk Sails North

The question was why use the painting called “The Monastery” as the image on the last blog post. The answer is Webb Chiles refers to going to sea as entering the monastery of the sea.
.
He is now about half way to Hilton Head or maybe just past halfway, going close to 8 knots over the ground. It is now 11 AM on Monday and he will encounter strong westerly winds tomorrow, and later northwesterlies followed by cold north winds late Tuesday and going into Wednesday. If he races into port at his current speed he will avoid some unpleasant weather and arrive before the cold front storms through.
.
The image is from his yellowbrick tracking page and the dots on the latter part of the track are 4 hours apart.
