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...

30 Degrees

I have been sorting through equipment with thoughts on spring. There are a pack of checklists, some dating back to camping trips in the early 90's. Not sure why I keep them... so much has been weeded out in the past couple years.

Just finished a painting of a deadrise crabber that has been on the easel for what seems like forever. I now feel that it is resolved and its on to another. Maybe I'll have a go at a rousing run onboard Annie. Where I would like to be today... if it wasn't 30 degrees outside!

  1. Hey there!

    I came here via Steve Earley's "Log of Spartina".

    I see you're going to move your boat to the storage facility on Milford Haven Inlet behind Gwynn. I keep my tired old 1968 Pearson in Queens Creek, just a stone's throw from there.

    I also see you mention Richmond - I live in the "far" west end - Short Pump, in western Henrico County. I'd love to see your pretty boat in person someday.
