  • Smaller Projects Take Up Time Too

    I’m finding that smaller projects take up as much time as large complex projects, especially when there’s (2) of us now involved with the daily decision making.  I’m good with that…I’m really, really good with my wife helping with day to day decisions now that she’s retired but it tends More

  • Baja Ha-Ha 2018 Through My Camera Lense (Casting Off The Docklines)

    Gotta be honest….after meeting with our mechanics and hearing that they probably won’t make the 4-week deadline (we had originally been quoted) for fixing our sailboat engine, my motivation was lower than usual.  In reality, if the engine isn’t fixed by November 4th we’re still going down Baja whenever it More
