Ongoing testing of the @peplink Puma 401 and MAX HD4 MBX router. Excellent performance in many places, but especially those with lower signal where the Band 71 support kicks in for T-Mobile. . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #gay #gayboat #gayboating #highfielddinghy #lgbtqboat #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #peplink #lte #mobileinternet #boatinternet #ltecat18

Keeping Diesel engines happy is something I learned the importance of years and years ago. Even while away from the home marina, when it’s time, it’s time! Oil and filter changes for main engines and generator plus impellers and fuel filters. Ready for another 200 hours! . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #gay #gayboat #gayboating #highfielddinghy #lgbtqboat #marinalife #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #oil #chevron #delo #oilchange #volvopenta #volvo #onan #generator #reverso

Foggy with a little drizzle in Parks Bay.

One of those nights at anchor that isn’t idyllic.

Windy day at anchor near Skull Island. A few other boats had some anchor issues, and we joined some friends on Skull Island for a socially distanced happy hour. A good day, and ready for the wind to go away..... . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #gay #gayboat #gayboating #highfielddinghy #lgbtqboat #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #wawx #anchor #orcasisland #westsound #windy

Beautiful weather to cross the Strait today! No fog 🌫 and light wind 💨 with a helpful tide! Couldn’t ask for more.

I’ve had these wonderful Hella fans on almost every boat I can remember for years. They are essential year round in keeping air moving. But I am still convinced that the designer had a mean streak - how many times have I had my fingers chewed on by the back? Too many! Have you? . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #hella #fans #fan #hellafan #cabin #fingers #ouch

Happy Monday. I’m enjoying my latte and the boat is back out again. Hopefully a short hang and we can get the rudder behaving. . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #rudder

Day 12: still can’t leave yet ☹️Engine alignment is done and shafts look good. Rudder packing sleeve fought two people all day and still won’t go in. Have a haul out time for Monday at 9am to drop the rudder and get it sorted. Meanwhile, the yard moved me to a slip which is super nice so I will have a quiet weekend cleaning the boat and enjoying Anacortes. Almost there! . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #boatyard #boatwork #rudder

Day 11: Back in the water! Things look good, no unexpected leaks. Boat sits until Friday when engines and shafts are aligned. First night back on the boat for me though, and man I missed my bed!!!

Day 10: shafts back in, packing glands installed, wheels back on (not pictured ), new zincs in place, ready to splash! Back in the water on Thursday to let the hull settle back into its normal shape, Friday we do engine alignment!

Day 9: shaft solution sorted. No progress photos today, just random things found on my daily walk. Everything goes back together Wednesday and I hope to be in the water Thursday. Still need the engine alignment on Friday and earn them hopefully back out on the water! . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #boatyard #path #boathouse #houseboat

Day 8: shaft had some damage we need to have examined by shaft experts. Timing is unfortunate as I was going to be back in the water tomorrow. Scoring is from poorly maintained shaft seal / stuffing box from previous owner. Not very happy about the timing but we will know more tomorrow / Wednesday. . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #shaft #boatyard

Day 4: good progress continues on preparing the bottom and running gear. Before and after of the rudders and trim tabs look awesome. Shafts should go back in soon along with bottom paint.

Day 3: even better news today. Shaft seals are still in good condition. Bolts holding the cover on were bad but easy to replace. Saves a lot of time and $ replacing those. Shafts may be back in by Friday! Cutlass bearings look pristine. Work started on major bottom prep today as well. Still looking good to splash next week sometime. . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #boatyard #anacortes #yard

Day 2: shafts are out after some creative work from the yard on one that was being difficult. Ordering replacement shaft seals. Everything else looks good. Engine mounts may be contributing to the vibration but we don’t have parts or the time to do that now. Will look at doing that later this year. Also, the place I am staying has a 1980s vintage microwave with literally no safety features. Instant on and I sort of like it! . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #yard #microwave #shaft

Day 1: out of the water! Bottom looks good but still some work to do on spots. Rudder and trim tabs need a lot of work (expected ). Biggest unknown was the vibrations and shafts. Good news is that they look great but the shaft seals totally broke apart while trying to change the packing. Shafts have to come out to put new ones in, and we will be looking at two engine mounts. Much better news for the first day out of the water. And I am always amazed by the Travelift experts. Literally squeaked by the stairway! . . . . . #OA #boat #boating #boatinglife #boatlife #dinghylife #elliottbay #highfielddinghy #marinalife #marine #mvrendezvous #oceanalexander #pugetsound #seabits #trawler #trawlerlife #water #waves #wind #boatyard #anacortes #seattleyachts

I am a lighting nerd, and one of my fav projects was adding stern and arch lighting I could turn on with a remote in my pocket while out on the dinghy in a dark anchorage.
