The Logbook

Busy Weekend

by the First Mate

Chuck and I have been continuously on the go this weekend.

The sun continues to shine and fair weather is expected through next week with a possibility of rain on Tuesday.

Saturday morning we were up early to go feed the horses I volunteered to sit over the weekend.  We had just managed to grab a bite at Fisherman's Net Cafe before I got a call to come into the clinic for an emergency. I just got finished with that, ran back to feed the horses again at noon then just made it on time into the KFSK studio for our Google Hangout No.3.  We had just finished up, grabbed our lunch and I got called into the clinic again. Whew!

"Big" with a mouthful of quills.

"Big" looking pretty sheepish afterward.

Not to be out done, "Taz" was next.

Dr. Hill and I put Hallie on the grid last night with the tide and we'll be busy grinding and painting for the next few days getting her ready for her upcoming rounds to Coffman Cove and Thorne Bay. 

We were, once again, amazed at the number of folks that took the time out of their busy Saturday to hangout with us. We are thinking we can get in one more before Hallie is expected to depart and Summer will be in full swing.  There have been some questions about joining the hangout and being able to participate in the chat.  You must be logged into your YouTube account to participate in the chat but we have been given permission to use the KFSK phone lines  next time so you will also be able to call in toll free.

"Jim's book is thoroughly, entertaining and honest and for us to be included is an honor. 

If you dream of sailing off into the sunset after you retire we suggest "Sailing into Retirement" is a must read."

Fellow shipmate, Fran Taylor, writes about her many adventures as crew sailing aboard different tall ships and she mentions one voyage in particular  during her time aboard HMB Endeavour where she meets a couple on their honeymoon.  Read the humorous tale of the seasick groom and how a new "private signal" was born among the Endeavour crew.
The first book I read after moving aboard Lealea.  A wonderful journey that got me dreaming.
Looking for a read that will make your stomach hurt from laughing?  This one did it for us!  A definite page turner.

"This Old Boat" If you can only have one book on sailboat maintenance aboard, this is the one.

“The Ashley Book of Knots” by Clifford W. Ashley is, quite simply, the definitive work on knots.  We think if you have more than a passing interest in marlinspike seamanship or decorative knotting this book is pretty much a “Must Have” This book is a high mass volume.

Fran Taylor was born and grew up in Scotland on the banks of the River Clyde.  She has sailed all over the world in a number of “Tall Ships” and has had a number of articles published. She is a regular on the guest  speaking circuit around Perth where she lives when not pursuing her dreams and answering the call of the sea. In 2012 she took part in the Titanic Memorial Cruise, a special event to commemorate the 100th
anniversary of the sinking. This book tells that story.
The story of Margo Wood and her husband Charles who began the "Charlie's Charts" cruising guide series. When her husband passed away she began to sail as a singlehander.   A wonderful story about a lady I admire a lot. - Laura  
An excellent read for anyone interested in single handed sailing. An inspiration for women. Anne had quite an adventure and this book is especially interesting to Albin Vega owners.- Chuck
