Cruising my 1995 Catalina 42 MK II sailboat with my cat XO, the good, the bad, and the ugly of the open ocean world cruising life.

Al makes the journey
Al fixing the wind instrument
Crew Work is never done.
A recurring problem that I have had on Reboot is birds landing on the masthead wind instrument and damaging it. Once again I received the repaired wind sensor from Garmin and it needed to be mounted on the mast. Al is my guest crew and he volunteered to climb the mast. Since he bike rides several miles each day I decided that his legs were a lot stronger than mine and up he went. After an uneventful project (contribution to the sea gods one screwdriver) he came back down. XO decided that after such hard work he needed to relax. Al got the rub my belly duty.
