Sailing Solo

I have many years of sailing under my belt but it has always been with other trust crew mates. From now on I will be the skipper, the helmsman, the crew member, the galley supervisor all at the same time. This is all OK with me. The part I get most nervous about is going inland and having to approach a dock!

Any way, to boost my security level, this past March I took a great trip to the Virgin Islands and took an American Sailing Association class. The beauty of the place is just phenomenal to start with but also got to sail with some other sailors who where there to kick some of the their fears too.

Getting Ready.

Sunday, May 25, 2008

Well, this last winter has been busy getting the house ready for renters. This includes gutting the kitchen, building all new cabinets (thanks Rolland!) and putting everything back together. (Who's idea was that?) Plus touching up all the rooms with a little paint, putting in a corner window in, painting 7 layers of RED paint, varnishing all the cabinets x3, now i need to put in the floor, get Rolland to put of the rest of the cabinet doors...etc. BA! I am ready to be done. (Before Picture)
