The admiral has trouble stepping of Fryedaze on a high tide. I saw a sailboat with a milk crate as a step. I always go overboard so I found a double wide milk crate and put 3/4" teak ply wood on the top and inside to create a heavy step.

Lol ooookay Al!

Walt I honestly don't know. It didn't match up with any measurements I could find so we cut off a sample (easy there Art) and sent it to Cliffe at Ideal to match with a wildcat. I asked him what kind of chain it was and I can't recall his answer but it was along the lines of "some kind of something" lol. Hopefully the chain and wildcat will mesh together better than with the old wildcat.

When I bought my boat, I had trouble with the chain constantly slipping. I determined it was 5/16" chain so I did what you did and cut a piece off for my windlass guy to look at. He pulled out a length of 3/8" and it fit the gypsy's chain pockets like a dream. Here's a pic from the Internet showing a chain that fits properly.

This Memorial Day Weekend: Admiral and I spent 5 days cruisen and hooken and playen and swimmen and helpen others from aboard our Tolly and Crestliner runabout!

1. I swam twice... First swim was under boat to clean bottom and all metal parts as well as wire brush scrub zincs clean of oxidation (we’re SF’s Delta fresh water)... Second swim was to scrub the sides of boat from chine to well above her boot strap (removed her accumulated winter beard). Rest o’ swimmen during those 1 +/- hour swims was for sheer fun!
2. Repaired a hairline seep-crack in a joint on port heat exchanger
3. Drilled and refastened port railing lift gate hinge
4. Reorganized all onboard tools and spare parts and extra lines and calk materials... etc – those items fill the lockers and some of the closet floor in forward V-Berth stateroom
5. Established a pass through area to sun deck in full-sized screen section of window at top, starboard in salon rear wall... makes BBQ’n on sun deck mush easier for food/tool transfers from up-galley in salon
6. Placed new bright white bilge-diapers under both engines – 4 yr old diapers were dingy as well as occasional fluid stains
7. Fastened suspension anchor clamps on forward area of bow rail to hang lightweight aluminum anchor (Danforth style) with 75’ of 5/8" line, for when Tolly is nosed into tules and hook is set on land ahead. Edge of many SF Delta islands have steep drop off from 0’ to 10’ +/- depth in 5’ +/- length... usually 20’ or deeper at swim step as boat nose rests against island edge.
8. Fastened suicide knob onto steering wheel of our tow behind Crestliner “Stinger” o/b runabout
9. Spent 1.5 hrs performing vessel assist for two rafted boats 100 yards from us that broke loose in 25 + mph winds while they slept in early morn and had fetched up blown-against a granite stone levee. Outcome was pretty good. Both boats saved and occupants OK (even though, during maneuvers and line pulling, one wife did fall head-over-heels over the boat's starboard/stern area side railing and landed inside a side-tied Boston Whaler dink – ouch on her ribs! )

Other than that stuff – We played / Watched many videos in eve / BBQ’d 4 times / Gunk holed in our runabout / And, enjoyed every minute!

Happy boating... Daze! – Art and Linda

Building new swim platform at home during darkest winter. Decided to make it out of white PlasTeak rather than real teak due to cost and maintenance
Did you have any luck finding a replacement windscreen?

Took the old one (in several pieces) to glass shop and they used it as a template to cut a new one out of Lexan.

Last Winter

Last winter we rebuilt wheel house and v-berth. This year we want to replace cap rail . Teak lumber prices are quite a bit higher than they were 10 years ago, around $20 board ft now, so not sure what we will do.
