Yesterday I replaced the steering cables
, and removed, cleaned and rebuilt all the sheaves.
Day before that, lifted out the bilge
pumps, cleaned all the filters and replaced the hoses.
Day before that, did complete oil change
filters, installed new oil
gauge and sender.
A week ago, a friend hauled me up the mast
, and I replaced the spreaders.
Took 2 weks in June, hauled out, sanded bottom and repainted. Liesurely!!
Getting ready to start refinishing my 1/2 acre or teak
, which has weathered back to bare wood thru lack of time.
Six months ago, I was putting in at least 60 hrs a week running my Commercial
glass and aluminum
company, and going crazy with labor, scheduling behind other trades subcontractors and just trying to get material delivered here to Bermuda
I voluntarily wound the company up, paid off my guys, took on a couple of small restaurant laundry contracts, which are quite lucrative.
My wife comes home to a clean house, a cooked meal (I am a pretty good chef) and she can put her feet up and relax.
I sleep better, and don't miss the rat-race at all.
Gotta go now-- getting the boat loaded for a night sail before we lose too much moonlight.
