Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Well we didn't go out Monday the 31st as planned for opening day but I think this weekend we'll get out, even just for a short sail out to the bay. Looks to be a good weekend on the bay, wave if you see us anyone Maybe Donna in her Malo

Cheers

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Shawn, man, you're making me jealous. I probably won't be in the water for at least another 6 weeks - too much work to do.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I am on the hard still, and blocked in by two large powerboats. Between work and evening commitments, I've only been able to find hour-long slivers of time to stop by the boat on the way home from work. Monday I pulled the cover. Yesterday I scraped off all loose bottom paint. Today I applied sand-free primer to the bare spots, followed by bottom paint on those spots once the adhesion promoter was tacky. Weather permitting, I plan to polish the hull in a couple sessions this weekend, in between other stuff.

I hope to launch on Friday, April 18, but with 10 days of travel between now and then, I'll have very little time to wax the hull, raise the mast, and test the motor. If I miss my target date it will be another week delay because of unfavorable tides at the sling lift. And if the big boats blocking me in don't splash first, I will continue to be blocked in. It's a private club, so they will not launch a boat without the owner present, and the owners tend to run and hide if they're not ready to launch.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Finished a complete compound and wax using the Mainesail method the last few weekends and it was the best job the old gal Haleakula has seen. That Makita is the ticket for sure...though it gets heavy as the afternoon goes on. Used the 3M compund, Fiinesse, a the good paste wax as well

The have reglassed the 4 inch crack and replaced the shaft log and the shaft is out being trued so our splash is [probably within a few weeks. This is the lastest by a month for us to be in and out sailing.

Starting to plan our Long Island Trip beginning August 13.

Cant wait to raft up with Brain see Sharons and his luxuary yacht.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Dave,

Got out yesterday for the first time. It was amazingly cold! Water at Thomas Pt is 47 degrees! Winds were 0-8 from the East. Race practice starts Saturday, so I'm hoping it warms up! Start to the Bermuda race is less than 2 months!

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Ok.,,,,finally we are ready to go. Splashing on Wednesday,

We finally identified what caused the 4" crack in the shaft log. About 18 monmths ago we had everything replaced from the coupler back ( coupler, shaft, cutlass) and also had new motor mounts done. Evidently the nuts must be torqued again after a settling in operiod of 9 months so both the from nuts dropped off the motor mounts. The engine shifted and laid against the shaft log and cracked it. New fix has backup nuts to prevent this from happening again.,

It will feel good to finally get to sleep on the boat and get out on the water.

Taught me a lesson. Torquing the bolts on the engine mounts and having another nut there so they dont back off is not an option...but SOP every year like changing the impeller, changing the fuel filter, and tightening the belts.
