Re: What has Happened to Living Aboard Forum ?

Get well soon!! And be nice to the nurses. They're the only people who can keep the doctors from killing you. So far, Isaac is tracking to the Gulf Coast, so hope for the best.
Be there soon,
Mo

Hi everyone!
I suppose that in my usual bizarre way, I ought to suggest that the reason I am so late in joining all the livingaboard expats is because I have had no need for any of you, and this is all about me!

The reality is different, of course. Except maybe about it being about me. :-)
I found this thread by Googling 'k8uet' , so if Helen is here, (I haven't looked yet) I thank you for being famous on the internet!
I was even able to keep my old username, Durian, a tropical fruit. I, on the other hand, am neither tropical, nor a fruit, (not that there is anything wrong with that, as TV's Jerry Seinfeld would say). But my wife is,...... tropical that is, but again not a fruit. I know that, because fruit doesn't irritate by filling the house with their family like Filipinas do!
My boat remains high and still dry.
However, I am currently welding up the launching cradle, and have promised myself that it will be driving down the ramp this coming spring.
I have sealed up the centreboard trunk to resolve the leaks that were from repeated repairs that were presumably incorrectly done. A proper fix would be to build a new trunk unit, and put it in, and I am old and might die before completing that, as well as this being a $2000 boat, not a floating palace. Not a floating anything right now!
Decks are sealed, Windows are almost sealed except a few drips, Engine (inboard) is loose from the mounts, and ready to be pulled clear, outboard bracket, or any inboard electric drive, not yet installed though.
One side cockpit drain redone in 2 inch pipe, exiting via transom, the other side still to do. Some through-hulls removed and patched over, still a few to go. Rudder rust ground out and reglassed.
I will be buying a used smaller foresail, as the 150% genoa would seemingly block my vision, and I need simplicity while learning to sail.
Oh, and I have all the stanchions and rails bedded in securely upon strengthening bases that are bonded in to the deck, and sealed using 5200, my new fave sealer. I should have used it for the windows, I can, after all, remove it using a grinder (or jackhammer, after all, the boat is paid for) if required later, as this is a 2000 buck boat. Oh the joys of being a cheap bast*rd.

I went sailing, at last, my first sailings on a keel boat, as a local Yacht Club (not mine!) do a membership drive promotion in June for 4 sessions of sailing, about an hour or 2 each Thursday evening.
Happily, my stomach contents remained in place, and I found the basics very easy to understand, I don't think that there is much to it, to get the simple basics done. The rest though, no doubt will take more time than I have left on this Earth.

Anyway, that's it for now.
Thank God for global warming, because rain doesn't need to be shovelled like snow does, and we are getting about 2 inches of it today. Rain that is.
So, seasons greeting from a wet Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

John
