I finished removing the overheads. A lot of work. Now it's time to fill the screw holes with 2 part marine epoxy. I really can't wait to finish, launch and get back to the sailing life. I miss it.
So, now it's time to remove the overheads. Hundreds of bronze screws. Of course I saved them. It doesn't seem to end. After I get them all down I will still have to number, stack and store them. Every screw hole counter sink to accept the slightly larger stainless screws. I'll also sand and revarnish every late. With all the interior being wood, I thought it would be nice to install some decorative teak ribs on the overheads to cover the srews and give her the authentic look she deserves.
So, I decided to post the refit & restoration of the boat. I took some photos of the deck showing the deck gear. This will all be removed in order to sand, barrier coat and paint. But first, I'll be removing the overheads to get at the bolts to remove everything. I'll keep updates coming as I finish each phase.
" Never run from your problems, When you can sail off in style."
I remember a time when life was much easier. Now it seems everybody wants a part of my time. Seems like I always have things to do. Every single company, person, and business wants something from me. In turn takes up my valued time. I want to do what want to do and soon I will. We will cut the umbilical in a little over a year from now. I can hardly wait. Independent and free of this life on land. Free of car payments, insurance, electric bills, rent and the constant nagging of society. Free of every single person on the take for a penny. Free to move about the planet and enjoy all that god has built for us. For all that man has accomplished he still can't make a tree, or a rock, only make copies of things he sees. Stay here and be apart of the herd.
To all our all of those who have not been to the site in a while, we have added a countdown. This is the date we christen and launch Nautica Prime. Ocean Island Blues will officially open on this date and will be ready for business. The business of diligent pursuit of one's dreams are the keys to happiness. See through the haze of social acceptance, be your own person and pursue your dreams. What others say is an attempt to distract you from goals they can't do, won't do or don't like. And you know what I say about that: " If there not on your side and happy for you. They are against you. "86 That"
Watch for our You Tube station ( not named yet) that will open in a about 6 wks and you can keep up with the progress as we get ready to head out.
Just in case you have not noticed, it seems the whole world has gone mad. There is more violent crime, corruption, disease and death then I have ever know. There are very few places left to go that are safe. Except one, to find my way back home, the sea. Cars zooming by, planes overhead, sirens all day long. Radio and tv ads buzzing about nothing important. News stations singing the same old story. All I want to do is to get off shore, find some peace and serenity. Get back in touch with nature, enjoy the sunsets and sunrises with my wife, family and friends. Cross paths with sailors of like kind, share sailing adventures and laugh through the night with my comrades.
People of the sail.
The rest of the worldly problems. 86 THAT!
