CreekmoreJohn is on a distinguished road
Hey guys, I've been distracted by much over the past few months and so haven't posted recently. My Creekmore 36, Magic, has been stuck in the slip due to repair efforts on the raw water system intake filter and hose and replacement of fuel filters. I added a second primary filter to help with cleaning the dirty fuel I have. With work, family and other needs that really come first, boat repair has strung out for weeks. One positive note is that our Lake Lanier is nearly at full pool. A year ago we were setting daily records for low water. Makes sailing the lake far more enjoyable when you can look away from the depth gauge for longer than 30 seconds! Hoping to bleed the fuel lines tomorrow and get out on the lake. The sailing season is really just beginning for us. Fall, winter and spring sailing is a little cold but the winds are strong and consistent. Summer sailing is either "bob and bake" or thunderstorms and "down draft" sailing. We have been sailing on my son Mark's J24. It's much lighter (3,000 lbs) and can be fun even in the light summer winds. Hope you guys are well. John
