Carolina weather

I love it. Went to the boat yesterday and worked on installing a DVD player and CD/FM/I-Pod player. Worked until 10:00 last nite. Got up this am and had some coffee and went right back to it. The wife, neighbor lady and daughter came down this afternoon and we went oput for a great sail. The wind was about 10 knots the sun was great. hadn't taken a bath since yesterday so i jumped in got the worst of the grunge off. Sailed until 8:00 tonight and i am sitting here just glowing from a good boating weekend.
That's all. i just wanted to rub it in a little.

Thanks!....10 days until splashdown. Still need to paint the bottom, paint new seats, install new seats, tab in new bulkheads, repair forward bulkhead, re-wire mast, varnish companionway hatch and re-build old bilge pump. Plus work a full time job.

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.

Jack - Thats great to hear. Where are you sailing in Charlotte?

Your right though the weather has been GREAT in the Carolinas. I'm now in raleigh and the winds have been over 10 just about everday and sunny. Yesterday took one of the schools JY's out and had a blast with my brother, minus the turtling incident.

Lake Norman is great. I live on the other lake, Wylie, and spent the weekend doing yard chores. Next weekend, though, I plan to drop the boat in the water...

Not fair. I live in New Bern, but am stuck in Flint, MI until mid June for school. Sucks, I think they forget to turn on the sun here.
