We’re making progress… as I mentioned before it was the mooring meeting at the club last Wednesday so I had booked half a day off work to get down before it started and try to get a few more jobs ticked off the list. A quick blast down and I was at the club, well I’m not sure you can blast anywhere in a 1.5 NA diesel car but I got there.
First thing on the list was to try out the improvised puller I made to draw in the cutlass bearing.
Well as we near the end of the year, Sundance is out of the water, I’m very slowly working my way through the list of winter jobs and thinking about sailing trips next year. NUSC doesn’t launch till April and I’m already itching to get back on the water.

The thing I dislike more then have to put my thoughts into words is listening to my own voice however I’m sure the people around me are getting fed up with me droning on about sailing and boats.

Everyone has a story and I feel we should all take the time to listen, and we should listen to the music they enjoy, even if it isn’t your thing. If I ever manage to do a transatlantic sail then I would love to download the archive and spend my time bobbing about in the doldrums learning and listening to the story of peoples lives.
Starting a blog is something I’ve considered for a while, I’m a wear your heart on your sleeve kind of guy. I have no problem sharing my thought with others and this way I don’t have to chew the ears of my wife and work colleagues.
