No, you've got to get out on the water. It's this almost time of the year that gets to us all.

Actually, in my case I may need to get a less hectic life. Because of my business, I typically check my email before turning in around 10:30-11:30 pm and again when I get up, 6:15 am. I typically open this site and Sailnet to see what is going on before turning in and during my first cups of coffee of the day.

Geeeez ... do I need to "get a life"!!!! Wake up on the boat, go to work at a chandlery, come home, get drunk, and go to sleep on the boat ... ad nauseum ... only difference is days off from work ... when I work on the boat!!!!! Today being, one such day, found a leak in my inflatable the other day, patched it with the Bostick rubber cement that Avon supplies ... uck ... nasty stuff, would stick to my fingers, but not the Hypalon ... did the best job I could with it ... still leaked ... screw that! Ripped it off this morning (at daybreak no less) and did a new patch using 5200 fast cure ... looks like that's gonna work. Hung my new (to me) outboard ... only to find that wiring it wasn't as simple as I thought. Took two hours to realize the freakin starter solenoid was tits up (pardon my French) ... hours more before I finally got the damn thing to run ... but ... it runs nice :-) Now dark 'o clock, and more than a few beers in me .... duh ... back to work in the morning .......... man .... do I need to get a life or what? :-)
