Halloween, Boat Repairs and Sailing

2004.11.06

First, some pics from Halloween. Becca was surprised with a Cinderella dress as a costume. It's been a long time since I've seen the girl that happy!

Aaron, wasn't as much into getting dressed up like me as we thought. So, he went dressed like him and played Photog boy. Took pics of all the folks giving him candy and made their nights. Until they found out there was not film in the camera...

Aaron has been really getting into Noggin.com. His mouse skills are incredible! Becca started picking it up about that age, but she tried to do it one handed and it took her quite a while to get control. Aaron said, "Bag this one handed nonsense and operates it two handed. He just whips through the games on Noggin.com. (These games being intended for 4-6 yr olds.) Here, he's doing a little freehanded drawing...

The springloaded plastic element that presses the anchor rode against the gypsy broke from clashing with the chain to rode transition. I didn't like the design of the plastic one, thought it would just break again, so I fabricated one out of a teak substitute. Extending the length of it on both sides should allow the rode to slip under easier, instead of smacking into it at 20'/minute.

Bruce found a soft spot in his samson post. As anyone who's ever worked rot before knows, once you start digging, you find a wee bit more... The good news is, Bruce and his craftsman Roland are in re-assembly mode so, it won't be getting any worse on this project.

But, it was a beautiful day and time to go sailing. Chris and his beautiful bride and baby showed up and we finally left the slip at 1500.

We sailed to Choptank light in 12-15 and shortly after we turned around, the wind died. So, after ghosting along into a rapidly chilling night for a while, we finally cranked up the diesel and motored home when the boat speed dropped below a knot... sigh.
