|Sunset in at Regatta Pointe|
We have a number of marine weather sources now so when I say "the weather isn't ideal", it's just that. Winds at 10 knots (the fair-weather guides tell us less than 15 is good), and waves less than 2 feet. Light chop. In other words, the boat will handle it just fine, some would say it's even perfect. I'm the cranky one. I like my water smooth.
We've been doing a number of other repairs. Our current mystery in the
|Logo? Depends on carvers.|
Meanwhile, I'm distracting myself with getting our boat name put on the boat. We need to remove all the old decals, which are peeling anyway and look terrible. Currently the name Knot 4 Sailing is in three locations; both sides and the transom on the back. The transom is a regulation so no option there (which is silly for us since the dingy blocks it but there you go). We decided to keep our sides decal-less and white. We're thinking custom-made plaques that we affix to the railing on the fly deck would look better. Being a bit fussy, I'd like those fonts (the transom decal and the plaques) to match. I'm awaiting info from the carvers.
Update: Rian just left and the generator still isn't working. That said, we have a much better idea why and it should be an easy fix for the Endeavour folks.

Note: The pictured sail-cat is named It's 5 O'clock Somewhere and everytime I look at it I get that song stuck in my head. Been singing it for days now. "Pour me something tall and strong, make it a hurricane before I go insane..."
