The Adventures of Scotty, Sue and Dan aboard Narnia

Tuesday happenings aboard Narnia

It's been awhile since we had a blog post. Not much has been happening aboard Narnia this last month. We have mostly been spending time at our land based home in the California delta, kayaking around the land home, planning our upcoming trip to the...

Sailing with Chris - An excellent day on SF Bay

So today I finally convinced my friend Chris to go for a quick romp around the bay aboard Narnia. This was only his second time aboard a sailboat. He proved to be a quick study on the basics of sail handling and was soon crewing like a pro.

Just another perfect day of sailing on the bay

What is there to say? It was just another perfect day of summer sailing on the San Francisco bay! The weather was clear and 71*. Winds 15-20knots when we started at 3PM dropping to 5-10 when we docked at 7PM. Incoming tide. Narnia was in her element....

A wonderful way to start a Friday.

It's a gorgeous Friday morning aboard Narnia, there is a negative tide and very light winds. Sue is home with Scotty, working to fill the cruising kitty, so what else is there for retired me to do but go for a kayak on San Francisco bay?

Good Morning from Narnia

Thursday Afternoon Sail on San Francisco Bay.

One of the benefits of being retired is that you can go sailing whenever the wind and weather are nice. You are not relegated to whatever the weekend holds. Today, Thursday was such a day. Clear sunny skies, warm breeze blowing high teens to mid 20 Knots,...

Low Tide and Paddling on SF Bay

The negative tide was a bit too low for Narnia to navigate the channel for sailing this morning so I opted for a morning paddle on SF Bay. It was a gorgeous Spring day with almost no wind and dead calm in the bay. There was not another boat to be found, not...

Gorgeous Friday Sunrise Sail on SF Bay

Since it was such a beautiful Friday morning on San Francisco bay, and Narnia has been raring to go for weeks, I decided to take her out for a solo jaunt around Alcatraz Island.

We cast off at 8AM with calm N winds, clear skies and flat water....

Narnia gets an Entertainment Upgrade

It was a gorgeous day in the SF Bay area today. A perfect day for boat projects.

Narnia came to us with a circa 2005 22" LCD TV. The TV actually still worked fine, but it wasn't really viewable except from straight on, drew 70W of power, and...
