Re: Project Fleury

No more smelly bathroom! Rob got the manual for the toilet online and it shows how to put a vent on the toilet-which he did and no more smell. He had to make it liveable because he and his former roommate had words and Rob moved into Fleury about 2 weeks ago. The insulation worked out great, kept it...

Come One, Come All, to the Workboat Rendezvous

Hi Gang, On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of May, the B.C. Workboat Assn is having a Rendezvous at Cowichan Bay. I've been to one before, super friendly people, great boats! Old tugs and other vessels that have been turned into pleasure craft. I'm definitely going this year and this time I'll remember to ta...

Re: winter projects

Hi Splummer, Now the boatyard is full and my roommate opted to move back to Calgary because he couldn't find work :( On the up/down side of things, the down is my van motor started threatening to fly to bits, smashing the electrodes flat on its plugs at 406,000 km, the up is I got a 1988 VW Jetta th...

Re: winter projects

Thanks Steve, The project I'm NOT liking is the bathroom reno, it's turned into a bigger job than I like and some days I feel like I'm going in reverse. Something had better start happening, I do believe the use of chamber pots went out at the turn of the century! (took the toilet out yesterday) Lois

Re: winter projects

Quiet here, cold but no snow. I have to drain the water tank on my boat and get her sealed up for winter, she goes to the boat yard for repairs after New Year's if the weather is decent. I am pleased,everyone who sees her, loves her. So being a lady pirate in the 21st century has paid off. We didn't...

Re: Boat Sitting

My boat has the measles! :( No, not exactly boat pox, keel pox. Water got right through to the bottom coat of epoxy and caused a bit of electrolysis but I caught it in time. SO---my dear boat is going to take a bit more to fix than I thought on the keel, but at least Mark 2 showed it to me and will ...

Re: Boat Sitting

My student arrived on his "prospecting trip" from Calgary and brought a friend who decided to go to school out here too, so I've got to clean out the big trailer so they each have privacy for studying. They LOVE Anastar, one has done some lake sailing in Alberta with Sea Cadets. They'll be back in a...

Re: Boat Sitting

Yuck, those darn through leaks, I'm going to have to replace the upper bulkhead between the galley and berths, it's only made of a lightweight laminate board and it's peeling :( Luckily my next door neighbour is a wood-working wizard and can fix it. :) I've got a sail-fix to do do, the clips for hol...

Re: Project Fleury

Hot Day and Rob just installed a new interior water pump in the Fleury because the old one got left on and burned out. :oops: (guess who left it on) :oops: He's also testing the Wifi signal from the house to motorhome because I got a new modem this week that does Wifi. I know it works good for my Bl...

Re: Boat Sitting

It's been raining a lot recently and when I went to get on the boat today I discovered the back deck had become a 2 inch deep swimming pool, the drain plugged up, I drained it but now have to scrub the back deck because it's all slimy and I had to wipe the galley floor because water leaked under the...

Re: Boat Sitting

No Stealth, no pictures, I just can't seem to get the hang of posting them, but I did take pictures of her on the lift and when I got her home.

My new 24ft lawn ornament--until she gets fixed and back in the water

Re: Boat Sitting

That's what the guys on SailingX say, I may do it, but I'm better working one on one with someone like Mark. I already missed 2 races and not sure when the next one is but I could try it I suppose. My friend Mark wants to crew on "Fiasco" she's FAST used to beat him and his buddy's all the time. I'd...
