Hey! My name is Adam and I started this blog mainly to talk about sailing. I now own and live aboard a 1978 Cal 39 MkII Tall Rig in Hawaii, bought in Jan, 2013. I didn’t have much previous experience growing up, but I did sporadically sail dinghies with absolutely no formal education involved. Some Sunfish sailing on the lakes of Minnesota a few times per year, later my dad and I would trailer the Clark C-Lark up to the mountain lakes of Oregon a few times per year, and then later drinking beer as rail-meat on Olson 30s every week when I moved to Hawaii and joined a Yacht Club ($100 per year membership fee!)
One half of this site will be dedicated to track maintenance jobs I’ve accomplished, comment on symptoms of the problems, how I fixed them, what I should have done differently and then publish everything for the world to see. Not only will it refresh my memory on the details of past jobs completed, but there’s also the option of linking these pages from the sailing forums. Hopefully it helps others get an idea on what maintenance is required, techniques available, difficulty or skill required, time required, and costs involved.
The other half of the site will be dedicated to the lifestyle of sailing. I moved onto the boat in Feb, 2014 after owning her for one year. I’ll post sailing trips, live-aboard tricks, and maybe some general experiences of interest.
