EagleSailtwo is on a distinguished road
My favorite hobby is varnishing old and worn out teak, then there are the main and mizzen that haven't seen paint since 1977, Oh, and how about the needed replacement articles such as running rigging, or, those turnbuckles and questionable swagged fittings.....did I mention the leaking stuffing box...too lazy lately to repack...I hear that TEFLON packing will end my worry....and there are the other hobbies, getting ready for winter (New England) making a shrink-wrap cover midships, between mizzen and main....I have a center-cockpit..........Heat....both Espars are working..good for another hobby if one chokes..............If I have extra time, I need to change oil in both my car and my pick-u p (has cap-is mobile storage) Have fun.......I hear bird carving affords easy space below......Much TV and browsing.........better yet, just go sailing and you won't need a hobby!
