Bio, Polfer, Clarence R.

This guy used to own our boat, and I'm going to try to find him and invite he and his wife for a sail. Bio, Polfer, Clarence R.

August 22 maiden voyage. 11 people on a three hour cruise including the Lundeens and Larson family and friends. Not much wind, but we managed to get the sails up and pretend to sail for a bit. Posted by Hello

Sails are off. Bimini packed away. All the heavy duty line we have on her. Waiting. Winds could reach 120 MPH and tides could be as high as 15' above normal. Posted by Hello

Taken before Hurricane Charley is expected to hit. We have reduced windage as much as we could. She is waiting with bare poles and 12 three-quarter inch lines fastening her to the slip. Of course, it won't do any good if the expected 15' storm surge happens. We are hoping for the best. Posted by Hello

Job List

Lots of stuff to do in the next couple of weeks including (in no particular order):

1. Replace the aluminum post that attaches to the aft bilge pump.
2. Purchase new Sunbrella fabric ( sells it by the yard) and fashion new hatch covers. We also need to get a snap maker and a supply of brass snaps.
5. Fix the light under the galley cupboard.

3. Replace the zippers on the dodger -- two are definately bad, but we probably should replace them all.
4. Install the new speakers (need to bring a drill, driver and bits)
6. Install a drain tube into the dehumidifier.
7. Finish cutting the aft cabin mattress pad.

The work begins

I ordered the following from SailNet today:

1. 7" Dome Light for Aft Head
2. Teak Liquid Soap holder for galley. If we like it we'll get a couple more for the heads.
3. 5 Folding Mast Steps -- four to get up the mast to attend to the mainsail, and one for the galley.
4. New toggle switch for the aft cabin light
5. 2 new clear lenses and 5 new portlight gaskets.
