S/V Delilah

A Blog to track the wanderings of the S/V Delilah, a 37-foot Tayana sailboat.

And a star to steer her...

As if the bungs weren't enough work, I am also fixing our autopilot yet again. I've managed to location the elusive drive wheel, but during installation managed to break two of the rollers. Such is my life.

Dude, that sucks. So, the bungs are done? That'd be nice. I put up a nice Chelsea clock/barometer set the other day. It's mechanical and has the ships bells option, which is really cool. But, I managed to use screws that were 3mm too long. They poke out into the wall of the head and form nice places to poke your hand, head, or whatever else might hit up against the wall underway. So, I get it. Two things fixed, one thing broken, one thing discovered. Such is the way of the boat. To live it is to love it. And you know you love it.
