Engine Maintenance

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

  Got down to the boat this Sunday to continue my spring maintenance projects. Turned out to be too cold to do any painting or apply cetol to the teak. Instead it was good opportunity to work on the engine. (more…)

Here we go again!

  Hello. I’m back! It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything in my sailing blog. In fact, I haven’t written anything all winter. And for good reason….. I haven’t done anything all winter.

 Well, it’s March and I’m ready to get going. Last weekend I went down to the boat for the first time this year. The picture above is before I stepped foot on the deck. The plastic tarp I tied down blew off as you can see. Otherwise, Galatea is looking great. (more…)

In Memory of Karl

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

 There was some heartbreaking news a few days ago. One of the mainstays of the Mattapoisett boating community, Karl Collyer, passed away. Janet and I want to express our condolences to Karls family and his extended family at the Boatyard. He was a great guy and we are going to miss him.  The  photo above was borrowed from the Mattapoisett Boatyard Newsletter that Dave emails out to everyone. Hope he doesn’t mind. It’s a great picture to remember Karl by.
