Techi boat and some maintenance

During normal maintenance on the strainer we noticed it was warped so we ordered and replaced with a clear one.



Techi stuff-

I added a DMK 11A-GPS multiplexer to my Seatalk network and now I have an app that displays all the old Raymarine sensors on the boat such as Apparent Wind Speed, Apparent Wind Angle, Tempature, Depth, Boat Speed, Heading, etc....  The DMK Analog Engine Monitor is on it's way.  This multiplexes Seatalk, NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 sending it over wifi to the iPhone/iPad.

Summer Solstice Cruise

The Summer Solstice Cruise was a lot of fun.

Tammy got to prepare food along the way.

To some cruising/racing.

Some uninvited guests!

A lot of helm work!

An unfortunate Mayday from a charter operator under full sail hit by a party boat head on, they never saw them or heard the horn.  They flipped and sent everyone to the Corpus Christi Ship Channel, then to the hospital, with the party boat destroyed.

And some speed on the way home with 26 knot winds!!

Water tanks

Both water tanks are functioning now thanks to Tammy, I needed a tiny woman to finish the job and the last hose doesn't even leak!  I got to replace the gaskets for the inspection covers on both water tanks; big score though from Corpus Christi Gasket Company all I paid was this nice comment for them!!!
