The Roller Coaster Ride
I love roller coasters: The clicking of the gears as the
cars slowly climb uphill. The build-up
of butterflies from not knowing when the big drop will arrive. The thrill of being
hurled around corners at top speed. I
still remember my first ride – my dad to...

Fixing Wet Rot
It’s hard to know how long the problem had existed, but it started dropping hints several days before making
itself fully known. The first clue was finding water in the main bilge in the
salon. A couple of weeks later, David grabbed a t-shirt from his wardr...

Klemtu | Way Back Wednesday
It’s Way Back Wednesday, an opportunity to dig through the
files and pull out an old blog post to
shed some new light on it. Over the years, I’ve written several posts about
anchorages we’ve stayed in, including first-hand anchoring information (i.e.

Westerly Ocean 43 for Sale
Well, it may have taken us a while (most things do), but
it’s done. Cambria is officially for sale. Despite having a clear idea
about how we wanted to approach this process, it turned out to be a lot more
difficult than either David or I had imagined. In fa...

(until David Dellenbaugh was brought in as helmsman and tactician prior to the
