    WELL WELL WELL: Tomorrow 12/3/2020 at 8:20, Carol Hasse' and Chris of the Spaulding
    Boatworks will have an open line of some sort and will (she is in Port Townsend and Chris
    in Sausalito)..
    MEASURE LITTLEGULL'S RIG FOR SAILS.

    We've had near freezing temps in the mornings..
    and along with spiking pandemics, all kinds of businesses dying, devastating wildfires
    [26,000 homes], unbreathable air, 8 months getting the mast together, near fascist
    gov't takeover..
    Hope it goes smoothly, ha!


    __________________________________________________ ____________
    Surprised to find out that a hero of ours, Larry Pardey died 7/27/2020.. RIP.

    Saw Lin, Larry and Talesine at a boat show maybe 10 years ago. They were
    holding forth down below in their famous LyleHesse cutter. Got into the
    cockpit, looked through the c'way, recognized them in what seemed like a
    tiny dark tunnel of sturdy woodwork, gear and gloom. Had my chance, but
    never went below.

    Thank the gods for our bright and cheerful plastic cruisers.

    I know I've checked in between now and back when the first 'new' pics were posted, dunno how I missed them, but - ALRIGHT! Way to go Ebb, she is looking fantabulous!!!

    And of course I'll join in the hue and cry - more pics please!

    I wish I was close enough to come help you straighten out both the typing and the picture posting issues. It is very good to know that you and Lil Gull are still in the hunt, though. Fingers crossed, good lord willing and if'n the creek don't rise - here's hoping next year gets a lot better somehow, despite how it looks right now!

    Kurt, Pardon me for not knowing if you are still active on the water..
    I've gotten old in years and with some problems that come with it.
    But I'm brave, and Lilgull will outlive me.

    Thus I INTEND to get Lilguil sailing. Her mast has been s l o w l y
    (7 months, and totally aware of our plight) altered to accept a
    Solent stay and a Code Zero. Yesterday 12/2/20 the rig was
    measured by Chris with Carol Hasse' on the phone for the better
    part of the morning. I was a spectator, altho I wouldn't have
    minded 'holding the other end of the tape'. BUT it's done!. Can't
    wait for the exciting invoice!!

    [The miracle will be heading out the Gate toward Hawaii.}

    I wish I had your help, really do.


    Here I am 'homeless' , a candidate for assisted living, and the
    idiots still haven't figured out to keep the old folks alive! (news:
    outbreaks of 60/80 patients in separate unconnected facilities)
    And that's just local, because the media seems as incompetent
    reporting whole news, neutral news. Since the assisted are
    waiting to die, Their diet, their food is probably incompetant
    and indifferent, health is not on the menu.

    Incompetence is pandemic. I'm no different. Indifference has been
    made popular, 70 million people voted for it, I have never forgiven
    the german's adoration for Hitler. It has happened again.
    What's in Hawaii?


    NEXT IMMEDIATE PROJECTS
    Bill wants interior shots. But stopped because I want help from Jose
    (a former Specter employee worker here at Spaulding) who has
    experience in Spectre watermaker setups. It has a lot of parts that
    need location experience in ting cabin. And what the hell is Ebb doing
    with a desalinater anyway?

    HARD RAILS
    Had beautiful set of hard stern rail made with the idea of hanging
    SunPower flex panels from. Hard rail will go as far as the cabin
    with new bling stanchions attached to the 'bulwark', rather than
    the deck.

    TO HANG 110w SUNPOWER FLEX PANELS
    Been working with a genius down the street here to figure out how
    to hang the panels (create a light aluminum frame for each of four)
    from the tube rail, to allow the 110w panels to be aimed at the sun
    while balanced horizontally on top tube, and carried vertically, and
    fairly easily removed when trouble is brewing.

    NAVY 6.0 -- 9.9HP EQUIV ELECTRIC OB
    And cohabit the solar with an epropulsion electric 9.9hp OB (HongKong)
    -- powered with their own 48v lithium. Look it up! They have produced
    the 9.9hp equivalent (motor in water behind the prop like Torqeedo)
    electric/lithium 65lb OB that Torqeedo forgot. Torqeedo's Cruise series
    are trolling OBs, meant to go slow. Epropulsion's so-called Navy 6.0 can
    push a displacement sailboat with it's low pitch prop, but also plane an
    airboat with a high pitch. The OB is cheaper but the batteries aren't.
    $12,000 min, motor, accessories, four 48v batteries matched to OB.
    (dream-on McDuff..)

    photos?

    Hey Ebb -
    Yes, still living aboard, still have "Katie Marie" and though she's lain fallow for a few years while I've been living aboard larger boats, she's still and always my favorite, and I've been aboard her at least weekly in this meanwhile thinking dreaming plotting, trying to figure out how best to make her the "One and Only".
    To that end I'll be starting to put wood and resin back into her this month, the beginning of her resurrection. I'll post something up over in my thread about that soon.
    Looking forward to hearing more about Lil Gull!

    GOODBUY TROGEAR

    Have to mention that. Because that labor thing is costing a bundle.

    If indeed I do go cruising, some chain will be necessary. Haven't got
    a winch and don't have room for one, and it's too heavy to add to
    all that junk up front just to have a light air sail, and the chain. !@#$%&!.



    COMPUTER JUST ERASED THE WHOLE DAMN POST !@#$%^^&&*(((^$!@@#%^&*)(*^$##%!!

    Hmm. No one else seems to have these problems . . . . Are you still on the plantation's network?

    I'm hunt and peck. Think this computer just gets tired of waiting
    .
    (It just erased a second line here) I touched nothing, except the last letter.

    It may be the mouse.

    It's a death algorithm. Robots are taking over. Humans are illogical

    It's time to make a move. But climate change will get them too

    When we both are gone there will be no problems

    Cockroaches will rule, Monarchs and bees will come back

    But all the yachts will still be in the marinas - waiting
