Forespar’s Mini-Galley 2000 is a compact, versatile and fully gimbaled marine stove that is ideal for small cruisers or racers where space is at a premium. The included low profile mounting bracket allows the entire stove to be easily detached and stowed when not in use. The complete set...

I love this stove! Works great for underway passages for simple meals. However, mine had a leak and had fire shooting out the side as the propane was still feeding it. It currently is at the manufacturer with a new one on its way back to me. They said out of 100 sold 6 had defects, 2 had significant leaks 1 of those was mine. I miss it terribly and highly recommend it!

I mentioned in an earlier post about Anne and Howard taking to thrift store in Shelburne. Apparently, the the movie "Scarlet letter was shot here a few years ago and "Moby Dick" was just recently shot here. It will be showing in 2010. It was a terribly raining day but I did get a few pictures. So most of these buildings have only 2 walls with nothing behind them (the whale bones are real by they way)

The plan is to make a 24 hour or so jump up to Halifax through some pretty ugly weather tomorrow and be done. Just to reassure those who worry...we will pull into a port if it really is too bad out.

October I left with my friend Lucile to deliver the Catalina to its new owner. Dances with Wind was launch at 0900, we left the dock by 1000 and made it to Stonington at 0500 the next morning sailing the entire way. Here we dropped off Lucile and picked up Ursula and left again at 0700. I think I like sailing in October.
