Old boats and old women.

Old boats and old women.

My boat is a 1978 Cal 39. If I did not live on it I would not get much done on her. I need some cosmetics done like painting the cabin top. If I was 40 I would have the ports pulled out and totally prepped sanded and primed in one weekend. Then the next weekend it would be painted and the next weekend the ports cleaned, sealed and back in. Well at 65 I have bought the paint and apoligize to my boat when I step on board. I would rather be sailing. So we sail hard and she gets put away wet. And when people come on board I tell them I bought the paint and am practicing on the inside of my chain locker until I can eliminate brush strokes. Toss the lines and let's go!

A woman that fixes sh*t....sometimes...
