10 July 2009 | Ray Here...
For anyone just joining our blog...Welcome aboard!

To use this little website you can look to the right and click on the map thing. It will take you to a map on top of another map. (like...scroll down once it loads...duh!) Okay...The second map is related to Google Earth so you'll have to download and install a Google Earth plug in that goes with Google Earth. You don't need all that if you don't want to get particular or hear about what's going on exactly where we are or what we've been doing...but it'more intersting. If you don't have it, you many need to download Goog;e Earth first.

Second thing...there is a picture thing you click on...Sandy is starting to load pictures in our Gallery.

Third thing...our blog entries are backwards to my way of thinking...meaning you get the most current blog first and older blogs later.

Last thing...there is a "comment" thing on the lower right side of each blog entry...you can post a comment to us if you wish. Remember, this is a public forum and anyone can read the comments. We will delete not- nice-things, as we have children and classrooms world wide preparing to follow our travels and read our sailblog posts.

In our boat world...I just found out that the exhaust system I was so proud of creating, will not work. The issue is...the size of the pipes and thickness of the exhaust pipe walls. Not-so-good the way I was told to do it. New "experts" told us that we need to increase the size which means a bunch more "boat bucks." (One boat buck is $100)...okay..onward and have a nice weekend!

Vessel Name: Pure Joy
Vessel Make/Model: Islander Freeport 41

Retired July '09. This is our second sailboat together. Before, Sandy had a Morgan '38 which she sailed from Port Angeles around Puget Sound. Sandy has motored to Mexico in the 70's...and lived and worked on her own boat for 3 years in Alaska. [...]
Extra: We are happy to report we are actually doing exactly what we really really really really really want to do...(short of winning the lottery of couse :)...in any case...it's PURE JOY! HF Contact: KF7IDH
