His physical location is Florida, his mental location would be State of Confusion. Be aware that he will be out of Florida for the Mid-West Sailnet gathering towards the end of this month, since the Cuban is dragging him there...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

"Handles"?? I thought you were talking about teak decks...now it sounds that you a merely talking about the cabin top handrails which is an entirely different issue and those are probably purely cosmetic.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

yep just the handrails on the cabin top. No teak decks or anything like that. Not much wood on the boat but what there is on top is in need of serious help. There is new awl grip all over the deck so that part looks pretty good. I think I will wait until I have more free time to get a boat with a lot of wood on it.

LOL...thanks for the update... not particularly surprised the Cuban likes the warmer climate of Florida, versus the deep freeze climate of Chicago in January.

Well I had the surveyor out and he spent about 6 hours with a bunch of wasps that had decided to make a home somewhere in the stern. I really hate bees so was not terribly enthused about sitting around but since the surveyor was on my dime I sucked it up and got a lot of good information.

One thing that came up was the chainplate in the back of the boat had a crack in the middle of it. The surveyor said it should really be replaced before it is loaded and I agree as losing the mast would likely cause a bunch of more expensive problems. Does anyone know if the islander rear chainplate is still available from some retailer or will one need to be fabricated to replace it? Any idea on how much it will cost? I have googled but had not had much luck besides people recounting the horror stories on the cost of replacing them.

Huguley3—

If you have the measurements, there are a few places online that you can get a quote for it from. You'll want to make the chainplates out of 316L stainless steel, preferably a single piece.

Talked with the owner and he got a quote from a place locally. I was figuring it would be close to a thousand dollars since that is the number that seems to come up every time something important breaks. The estimate was quite a bit less than that so that makes me happy.

We have come to an agreement and if everything goes well I may have my very own hole in the water to consume any remaining money and time I have.

Thanks to everyone who has posted here over the years I have been here. I have learned a lot of how to do things and even better what things not to do. Nothing like learning from experience though. Something about feeling the pain first hand makes it stick in your mind better.

Everything has moved along pretty smoothly. The engine was ran the other day so that is at least functional. It needs to be checked on the sea trial yet but its a good sign that it fired up.

So by next week sometime its quite likely that I will have some new to consume my remaining time and sanity.

Heres a pic of the side with a fresh coat of wax and the bimini up.

Oh and I forgot. There was a boat next to it in the marina with my new favorite boat name. It was called "Never Again III". I thought that was pretty good.
