More projects done (or mostly done)

This past weekend was another effort to get a few more projects completed. It’s easy to buy the stuff for a project, but harder to find the time to do the work — at least it is for me. We made good progress, but completed little.

The deck freezer came back from Boat Electric with all new guts. It turns out the freezer was old enough that replacement parts aren’t available so all the internal workings had to be completely replaced. It was more expensive this way, but probably better in the long run.

Roche Harbor to Seattle

The only casualty this trip was this water pump. I touched it and it broke at one of the connections. It was probably not my fault.

Puget Sound Grand Banks Rendezvous (part 2)

More from the Grand Banks Rendezvous. While many of the photos make it look a bit dark and gloomy in Roche Harbor, the weather was actually pretty nice. No need for a jacket most of the time. I am happy as long it is not wet.

Puget Sound Grand Banks Rendezvous (part 1)

74 boats and over 200 people attended the annual Puget Sound Grand Banks Owners Association Rendezvous in fantastic Roche Harbor this last weekend. This is the reason we were in the San Juans. This was our second Grand Banks rendezvous.

Jones Island to Roche Harbor

A still, calm, quiet morning at Jones Island. Just these three boats at the dock and us on a buoy.

OK. four posts in a day. I have come to the realization that I am a bad blogger. I should do a better job of keeping things up to date.

Prevost to Deer Harbor to Jones Island

The day started out pretty nice at Prevost Harbor. Almost no one around. Still and quiet. Cindy was leaving us so we needed to get to Deer Harbor in time for her flight back to Seattle. We left about 9:00.

Spencer Spit to Prevost Harbor

I am going to try and get caught up. I am still a few days behind what’s going on. We left Spencer Spit late morning headed for Stuart Island. Still no rain, but plenty of clouds. We let Cindy do the driving.
