    Look at her

    Of course she's the center of attention.
    THAT's a GOOD LOOKING little boat.
    OK, now check out the others in the background....

    Feel the same thing???
    Anything at all?

    Well, I missed out on getting the boat hauled before the docks were pulled this year, so I'm staying in until the end of October. So far, so good!

    Wow! Another gift weekend for October! My son and I went to explore an old fort in the middle of Portland harbor.

    It's easy to get lost in the lists of lists of things to do and jobs that need tending to. Yesterday was a nice reminder of what it's all about...

    I just love these boats!

    ...still dreading that November winterizing though.

    That looks like it was a great time, Mike. Truely envious here. I gotta chuckle, with a tear in my eye, 'Novermber winterizing'?! Must be nice!

    Hey Mike,
    On the prospective winter project list... on the chain locker cover pictured in post #11 http://pearsonariel.org/discussion/s...2&postcount=11, I can't tell from looking at it - is the panel with the anchor raised or routed out? My eyes are playing tricks on me and I can see it both ways!

    Hi Kyle, I see what you mean... It's a removable panel. It's got little clip things and a cleat along the bottom on the backside so you remove it and access the chain locker. I'll be tarping this weekend and can take some pics if you're interested...

    Well, after some unpleasant news in the beginning of the year at work which left me wrestling with the idea of selling Sea Glass for a couple of months, then a long and soggy Spring which seems to have no end in sight, Sea Glass is finally back in the water at her new mooring field.

    The sun poked out for a moment and the wind picked up just enough to go out for a short sail. I think these guys were just happy to have some sun to dry out a bit - they didn't even try to move, just watched us slowly ghost past them...

    I had a "full circle" moment as we sailed past Orca. She was the first Ariel I came across on the web a number of years back and the one that got me hooked. I even emailed the owner Ed a few years ago to see if he was selling back when I was looking for my Ariel. Now, I'm happy to have landed in the same mooring field as Orca and will see her every time I go out. Looking good Ed!

    Also, a quick "thank you" to Ted Mahavier for his generosity - a little piece of Chalupa lives on (main sheet block) and will enable Sea Glass to sail the waters of Southern Maine for the forseeable future! (Hope you're enjoying your spacious CD28 Ted!)
