Taking stock

SAMSUNG SAMSUNGNothing in life is static. From growth comes decay, order turns to chaos, and life eventually returns to death. A day of going over my Sprite turned up a multitude of problems I was not to concerned about in upstate NY.

Upon reaching home, I discovered that the tiller, which had looked so strong and assuring in the cockpit was in two pieces, rot having hollowed out it’s all important core. Likewise was the wiring a disaster in the making. Running hither and yon from a makeshift switch panel carelessly hung from the portside quarter berth, it was only on tracing them did I discovered that the switches were redundant, as the wires themselves had no destination..

Truly my cute little Sprite had turned into a full scale project as a major refit loomed on the horizon like a squall just waiting to pounce. The skies had been red the morning I retrieved my boat, but I had failed to take warning.

A long time sailor who has been away from the water for too long, I am working hard to bring an old and abused boat back to life. When not working on my boat, I can often be found working as a Stage Hand in Atlantic City or just out and about on my Mountain Bike. I really come off as a quiet and boring person when people first meet me.
