Ready for Splash

"Julianna" is all saddled and bridled. The yard might launch her today, if not today, than sometime before next weekend. Its been a crazy spring, but sailing is just around the corner. (No Denr, I do not want a cookie)

I share your enthusiasm tjk, since True Blue is also ready for launching - although she should have been in last week, if not for that snotty front.

Fresh bottom paint, new zincs, running gear clean and topsides all waxed and buffed . . . I'll share a box of cookies with you.

Un-wanted Splashes

After a winter of working with the protection of shrink wrap all winter I lulled myself into a false sense of 'tool security' inside and outside the boat. After cutting away the remnants of my poorly done first attempt that were shredded by the Nor-Easter last weekend I attacked the frame. I promptly splashed a wrench followed by the clamp I was removing a minute later. I then slapped myself a couple times and reminded myself that from now on (as it always should be) anything picked up on deck is worth millions, irreplaceable, and will cause the boat to sink if dropped. Ahhh...... back into the summer sailing mentality

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.
