There’s Always Something New to Learn on the Water

Sea Jay's on Facebook

We have pulled the yachts apart this winter and made a complete mess whilst everything and I mean everything has been overhauled and serviced. I have cleaned parts of boats I didn't know existed and discovered the spirit of teamwork in the most extraordinary people. You know who you are and I am forever grateful for the support you have given me. It has been tough and the team have worked so hard to get the girls looking so sharp again. We have taken out seacocks and replaced where appropriate, we have replaced a propshaft due to the damage caused by rope wraps, we have had our rigging checked and repairs done to make sure that all is in tact and safe. I will have "are we safe?" as the heading for my eulogy, Paul will have "I have done some research..." and Toby will have "I have had a thought..." Safety is everything to me. And after all the work we have done and the checklist for the MCA coding inspection being carried out by the surveyor we are good to go. Rock on the season. So when are you joining us? ...

Here's to a busy sailing season, getting lots of new faces on the water

There was a newscaster reporting on a war. He was not allowed to say much but what he could say was that he counted the planes flying off the aircraft carrier and he counted them all back in. His way of telling us that all were present and accounted for. Our girls were lifted for the annual bottom scrub and complete check over on Monday. Imagine my shock at the sight in front of me when Breezie was lifted. She had not only a spring line wrapped around the prop shaft but a fender line as well. It’s not hard.. we only have 6 fenders and a couple of spring lines so how difficult is it to account for these ? Fortunately there was no lasting damage to Breezie but it could have been incredibly serious. As sailors we must all take responsibility for all equipment on board and make sure that it is accounted for and stored appropriately to save from any disasters. Rant over. Just had to get that off my chest.

Both girls have been painted this weekend and are sporting a new coat of navy anti foul. I painted the keels and rudders... I think there is more paint on me than on the girls! It’s that time of year! A few more tweaks to be made before they the girls return to the water at the end of this week. Thank goodness for the unseasonable weather!

Lucky not to bend the “P-bracket”. Never in the field of rope vs prop conflict have I seen so little damage by so much rope.

Beware.. Did a YM prep course with this school in August 2017, the instructor was somewhat cavalier, the boat was a wreck and the management unconcerned. Altogether a disastrous few days. I emailed Fiona, the owner, expressing my dissatisfaction but got no response. Since then I went to a more professional school and although somewhat lighter in the pocket, I am now a qualified YM offshore. You live and learn :-)
