Noises

One of the things I could never understand about people I would bring on as crew was their indifference to noises. To me noise is everything. Something rolling around? Go find it and re-secure it. Why? Not only is the noise "Chinese water torture" to me, but it frequently means something is wrong or has broken loose.

That brings me to tonight. We have had several rain showers tonight. I can hear water sloshing around. I know its not the bilge. It turns out that with Reboot's current trim we are slightly bow down. The water is (was) trapped in the channel around the companion-way. When I went up into the cockpit I disturbed the trim enough so it drained. Yes, on me!

Fair winds and following seas :)
