Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

Sailors Exchange

When Annie needs a replacement, a bit of bling or just a random screw we go to Sailors Exchange first. Located on West King Street this treasure trove is where the local and drifting boaties come to root around.

Oh I see the one I need!

Bilge 'colanders'

Sunbrella... cheap

I don't use one of these... but I hear some do 

Fence reinforcement

Just go ahead and dig

Sometimes you just can't think of a use

I wonder where they have been

Some pieces are in better condition than others

Fun for the whole family

What more can be said?

Oh yea

Wayfinding aid

I venture to say that you may never find another chest of cigarette lighters


Do you have any 1/8"?
