Lazy Sunday with a Golden Morning

The weather has been a mixed bag. Rainy and windy the first night. Sunny and mid 60’s the last 2 days. Foggy and wet this morning and 60 to start the day. Supposed to be sunny this afternoon and low 70’s for the next 3 days with some thundershower possibility each day. Early spring weather […]

Blue is Back in Gear

Dusty the mechanic showed up early on Saturday with a new shift AND throttle cable in hand. The challenge before him was getting the pedestal cover off.

Back on Blue in Seabrook, Texas

Since the truck was delayed when we arrived three weeks ago, I booked a flight to come back down here for this last week of February. I still need to have the mast and hard dodger pulled and prepped for shipping. I had quite a long day getting here because of the 3 hour shuttle […]
