This past Black Friday was a beautiful day, instead of shopping, I climbed on the boats and ran electrical cords and charged my batteries. I don't have any where to put them, plus I don't like taking them out of the boat, so a few times through the winter I will spend a few hours charging batteries and doing maintenance.
While on the Sarah Maria I grabbed all of my charts, and have brought them home.
I am going to add parts of my previous trips using parts of my old logs to create virtual sailing trips. Click here for a virtual trip to the Isle of Shoals
Folks ask me what I do this time of year. Each year has been different from picking up handyman jobs to living on my boat in Hilton Head, South Carolina, off and on. This year I am going to concentrate on perfecting my guitar, why I can't explain, it is an obsession
Just about 15 years ago I met EJ Ouellette and told him that I wanted to quit my job to play my guitar and sail boats. So far I have not done that bad I did quite a bit of sailing however I did not find enough time to work on my music.
I am also going to find the time to visit my brother Franks art studio, '(Eyeformation)' located in the Joannes fabric building 122 Western Avenue, downtown Lowell. They are having open studios both Saturdays and Sundays the first two week ends of December. This would be a great way to shop local.
Captain Ed's Sailing was very successful this year with just about 50 days of sailing under our belts, and meeting and sailing with many great people.
I want to again thank everyone for their support of Captain Ed's Sailing if it is even just through reading my news letters.
Thanks Captain Ed's Sailing
Captain Ed's Sailing gets more popular each year, however there are always great weekends as well as weekdays available.
At the end of the day you walk away from the boat and leave the cost of owning and maintaining the boat up to me.
