This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
On Sunday, October 25th, I sailed the Bucentuare across the Chesapeake to Annapolis to put her up for the winter. It was a grey rainy day with light winds and 50 degree weather. But a day on the water always beats a day on the land.
I did get templet with the navtronics on my newly installed B&G system. The chart can plot the most efficient direction to go based on wind speed / direction and final destination. I need to enter the specific factors for my boat (hull size/shape and sail configuration but it's a pretty cool tool!
There were lots of freights to dodge!
Anf here she is, tied up on the floating dock at the boatyard where she'll winter. The boatyard crew will lift the Bucentuare out of the water with a giant fork lift and place her of stilts to ride out the winter. After a bit a re-fit she goes back in the water in late March of 2016!
I did spend a little time on the work bench planing the top. Lots more to do!
