Sailing my Paradox and country living

Leave a comment

introducing myself

My days of sailing my little boat are over now winter is coming, until next spring I would think,  as the weather this week has been very rough with heavy showers and blustery winds. The weather may improve next week, but I have some medical appointments to attend and anyway the days are getting so short that there is little time available for making passages in daylight – which I prefer.

So, there will be plenty of time for walking in the nearby fields and taking in all the agricultural work that happens there.

I bought these Alt-berg boots just a year ago. More expensive than I would normally fork out for but they’re so comfortable and -so far – completely water proof.

So , as always, spent some time sitting on board the boat while she’s safely parked in the shed to while away some time and using my imagination… .

The new solar panel .Sadly had to replace the old one as it was damaged by the sliding hatch scuffing it.

The tiller pilot is a another new addition. I’m pleased with it, and now I know that it works well as   I’ve fitted it, will made some modifications to the wooden fixing bracket to tidy up the installation.

Took all the food tins off the boat for the winter today and noticed some of the tins were getting rusty
