Sunday May 20th 2018

Today Sunny. Wind south 20 km/h gusting to 40. High 26. UV index 6 or high.
Tonight A few clouds. Wind west 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Low 8.

I woke up to sunshine and dozed a while.  At 0835, I got up and made coffee and ate the leftover pizza.  Bruce called and came down for a visit.

I find I am happy again.  After six months of not drinking, I was getting tense.  Starting again seems to lower the pressure.  I just have to be very careful not to overdo it.  Can I?  Many cannot.  We'll see.

At  noon, I cast off with no definite plan. Once out of the harbour, I set sail for Montague, but then decided Montague would be a zoo and tacked up to the reef at Active Pass and then into Village Bay, where I am now anchored.  There is absolutely nothing happening here.  It is pleasant.

I arrived at two and I should have stopped earlier.  I'm baked.  Without a bimini, the hours between eleven and three are sunburn time.

I really resented having to be here in the Northwest when I could be in Mexico, but a day like today is the best. Some sunshade would be nice, especially as I currently am on doxycycline which -- I forget sometimes -- makes me sun sensitive.  I was wondering why I am burning on my face.  That must be it.  Bummer.

After a rest and before too late, I set out again, sailing  south with no definite destination.  I considered Bedwell Harbour to catch the end of the Bluewater Rendezvous, or maybe Sidney -- or maybe a stop at Portland Island for the night.

I decided on Sidney, seeing as I have a slip assigned there and I am going to wind up there anyhow.  The wind dropped and I motored straight there.

I am amazed at how much I have learned since I bought Cassiopeia a little over five years ago. At that time, I was very green and cautious. Today, I motored right through an area that would have frightened me in the past, passing rocks and whirlpools and shallows along the way.

I motored into D2, docked beautifully in that difficult spot, stepped off neatly and tied up-- and was complimented by passersby.

I'm home.

Monday May 21st 2018

Today A mix of sun and cloud. Wind north 20 km/h. High 27. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight A few clouds. Wind north 20 km/h becoming light this evening. Low 11.

I left Swalwell on the 12th. On the 26th, I'll have been gone two weeks. Today is the 21st

While I'm here, I'm hoping to find my things left in storage, check out my spare dinghy and outboard and get some assistance with the seal -- and have a look at Cassiopeia before she is sold.

Cassiopeia is still out on charter, though, so today I'll chill and do odds and ends. As for getting help, Jason, the new dock guy decided to take the day off seeing as it is a long weekend 'holiday'.  That is not how it works, though, in the charter business.  When there are boats coming and going, you have to be there and four boats were coming in. Dawn called him in and he showed up, but things were so busy I got little assistance.

I went uptown and bought groceries and went to the unhealthy but tasty Chinese buffet and rested up, recovering from Shelter Island and the sunburn I got while painting the boat bottom.

Tuesday May 22nd 2018

Cassiopeia returned and the client tied up on F dock, seeing as getting into the main dock requires more skill that we expect from clients. I'm in D2 and belong on the main dock, as does Cassiopeia so tonight or tomorrow I have to bring  them around.

I got no help today either, but did have a mechanic from Vector drop by to offer an opinion about the shaft seal.  He thought the shaft had some run-out and maybe the engine alignment was a bit off.

I also met the owner of Arcturus a small Bavaria that is in charter and has great bookings.  He offered to sell the boat to me for a good price, and, seeing as I figured Cassiopeia is as good as sold I seriously, considered the idea.

We wound up at the Surly Mermaid for beer and supper and Dawn joined us.  I got to meet her daughter, who just happens to work there.

I returned to the boat, watched video and went to bed. I'll move the boats tomorrow. 

I have to leave soon and I am not getting much done here.  I need to allow lots of time for the single-handed 100 mile trip.  I want to get back in time to do a few things in Powell River. At six knots it will take sixteen hours, minimum. 

The return trip could be easy or it could be hard.  It just depends on the wind.  I also have decided to stay out of the cockpit from eleven to three to avoid more sunburn.

Wednesday May 23rd 2018

Today Sunny. Wind becoming southeast 20 km/h near noon. High 29. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Wind southeast 20 km/h becoming light this evening. Low 13.

I was up early and moved the boats around to the main dock and plugged Just Do It! into shore power.  I'd been on the ship's batteries the past day and a half.

I had just tied Cassiopeia up when two gents walked down the dock and the older one introduced himself as a surveyor who had come to look at Cassiopeia and this was his son, also a diesel mechanic.

I asked when they intended to haul the boat out for a survey and he said he was doing a preliminary inspection to see if they would bother with a drydock.  Hmmm. 

I said, "Well, let me know what you learn", and he said he could not because he was hired by the buyer and I could tell right there  the guy was an jerk.  This should mot be an adversarial process. Oh, well.

They started the engine and went below, then came up an announced they were done and the boat has excessive blow-by. He phoned the buyer and I gathered that was the end of it.  Oh, well. 

I said I had heard no complaints about blow-by from our maintenance mechanic and he offered to show me.  We went below, and sure enough there was crankcase pressure that could be observed by removing the oil filler cap, but no oil leaks or problems and the mechanics who service the boat had not mentioned it being excessive.

From the phone conversation I overheard and the departure of the surveyor, I figured the deal is off.

That is just fine because I was regretting dropping the price and I had noticed five un-booked weeks and if I keep the boat, I have a clear opening in July to go around Vancouver Island again. 

After he left, I took Cassie out for a quick run and as far as I could tell, she was running just as well as when I bought her five years ago.

I enjoyed that little jaunt, having forgotten what a fantastic sunny and roomy boat she is. After getting used to my 35-foot boats, this 42-footer seems huge.

By afternoon, I was getting no assistance in finding my things or anything else.  I'd had had enough of Sidney and decided to make a start on my 100 mile journey. 

Conditions were calm and tides were favourable, so I motored out and through John Passage, around Portland Island and Beaver Point into Annette Inlet on Prevost Island (right) where I dropped anchor for the night.

Thursday May 24th 2018

I woke with first light, raised anchor at dawn, and motored north out of the bay and into Trincomali Channel with a light following breeze assisting.

My plan was to arrive at Porlier Pass just before slack and go through while the waters were calm. I needed to make at least five knots and did not have enough wind to sail well, so used the engine to assist. 

I arrived right on time and motored through.  Then I began to notice steam coming from the exhaust as I went and could see that overheating was immanent again. 

Fortunately, as I exited the pass I encountered a favourable wind and could raise sail.  I set Just Do It! on a close-hauled course and found I could just about make Gibsons on one tack and made that was my initial target.  I soon found the autopilot had trouble holding course with the gusts even after playing with the sail plan and autopilot settings.  About then the wind died and shifted and when it returned, I could see that I could make it to Garden Bay easily and well before dark.  I like Garden Bay. Soon I was again making a good six knots downwind on the rumb line.

On this route, military area WG (Whiskey Golf) is always a consideration since sometimes the area is active with battleships, subs, and possibly live torpedoes -- and therefore closed to civilian traffic. 

I checked online and found that Whiskey Golf was active today but, consulting my charts, I could see that my rumb line to Garden Bay skirted the area nicely, with a mile to spare.

As I sailed across Georgia Straight, the wind changed and soon I was running straight downwind.  The swells were building and the boat rocked and the sails backwinded occasionally but I was able to run wing on wing with a preventer on and moved along at up to seven knots.

As I entered Welcome Channel I noticed an email from my mother and called her.  She had been trying to reach me by phone, but received a message that said that my number was unreachable and did not offer voicemail. She was relieved to hear from me and said she is having  trouble walking suddenly and can I come down.

I said I would be there as soon as I could but am out at sea with two days until my flight to Calgary and a long-anticipated and potentially critical eye specialist appointment the next day.  Then I could be there.  Unless it was an emergency in which case, I'd come directly.  She said that early next week would be fine that she has her helpers in the meantime.

I arrived early at Garden Bay and motored all around to see parts of the inlet I have never explored, then anchored in usual spot, but did not go ashore. I had sailed through the noon hours, but was not burnt.  The sunblock I had bought in Sidney worked well.

Friday May 25th 2018

Today Sunny. A mix of sun and cloud late this afternoon with 30 percent chance of showers. Risk of a thunderstorm late this afternoon. High 29. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Partly cloudy with 30 percent chance of showers this evening and risk of a thunderstorm. Clearing near midnight. Low 11.

I woke up early, raised anchor, and motored out of the bay.  Although the forecast was for north winds, I was pleased to see that the wind was still coming from the south, favouring my travel.

My plan was to get into Westview early and speak with Fraser and Larry before they were off for the weekend.  Arriving right after lunch would give us time to consult.

The wind co-operated for the first half of the remaining miles, then the wind turned north and I had to motor hard.  As I rounded Grief Point, aptly named, the overheat alarm came on again and I was forced to sail.  At the point the wind had dropped, but still favoured a slow close-hauled tack to my dock. I gave up on the plan to fuel up before entering my marina as that would involve motoring in and out of the fuel dock.  Just getting home would be good enough for now.

I was nearly at my marina when the wind died completely, so I tried the engine again, knowing I could run a short while, even with the alarm sounding without doing harm if careful. It did not sound.  The engine had cooled and I made it to the dock and tied up.

I talked to Larry and Fraser and explained my experience.  They had obtained a replacement shaft seal (right) and after examining it, it was clear that the leaking we were seeing was about as bad as it was likely to get since the seal has two lips and a centering sleeve inside.  It is thus double-protected. I had imagined a single lip and not realised it was so robust and had feared a sudden rupture.  Just the same we planned to change it before the next charter.

After they were gone for the day, I arranged a lift at Jack's for Tuesday and found a tech who had the tools and know-how to do the job.  All we had to do was get the boat the twelve miles to Finn Cove and back.  I would not be around to do it, but the guys would -- if the cooling was fixed by then.

That was my day

Today A mix of sun and cloud. 30 percent chance of showers early this morning. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 60 becoming light near noon. High 25. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight Partly cloudy. Becoming clear near midnight. Wind southeast 20 km/h becoming light near midnight. Low 11.

Wrote email all day.  At six, I walked uptown for supper at a latin restaurant. It was so-so, somewhat pretentious, and not cheap.

I returned to the boat, watched some video and went to bed.

I catch  the 1150 ferry tomorrow and fly at 1830.

I should be home in bed in Swalwell by midnight.

Sunday May 27th 2018

Today Mainly sunny. Wind northeast 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this morning. High 27. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Wind becoming southeast 20 km/h this evening. Low 12.

I was up at eight, packed, and caught the 11:50 ferry to Little River. Don met me and we visited all afternoon.

My flight lifted off for YYC at 6:50. I paid $160 in Calgary for parking.

For parking two weeks and two short shuttle rides, I paid over half the price of a high-tech flight all the way from YQQ to YYC.  How does that compute?  I think the airlines are in the wrong business. They could make more money selling parking.

I drove to Airdrie, bought groceries and drove home, arriving at eleven, and went to bed at one.

216.0 6.8 132/76 66

Today Sunny. Wind south 20 km/h becoming light near noon. Wind becoming southwest 20 gusting to 40 this afternoon. High 31. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Wind southwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Wind becoming north 30 gusting to 50 overnight. Low 11.

I am home. Everything looks wonderful and green.  Lilacs and caraganas are in bloom. The grass is still okay, but getting long. I have to run to Calgary today to see my eye specialist.

Here are two good articles from Dr. Mirkin.  Finally the truth comes out.  It was in front of us all along. These are things our grandmothers told us.

At one, I left for Calgary, arrived on time, and was declared okay by my specialist.  Apparently the other guy had been a bit alarmist.  Much ado about nothing.

This appointment was quite a disruption in my scheduling as are all the medical appointments.  Seldom can I make one reasonable soon so that it is not out somewhere in the future requiring me to alter some other experience or project to fit.  The tail wags the dog and I see no end to it.  Do I have to wait weeks or months to catch a bus or have a restaurant meal?  I can catch a plane to anywhere today.  Why not find a doctor or medical service?

Maybe some day we will greet our doctor by the first name, like any tradesman, or businessperson,  plumber or IT specialist, rather than by an honorific. When that day comes, we'll finally have tamed the medical monster and have the same expectations we have of any other essential service. Timely and convenient delivery.

I returned home and began preparations to fly east tomorrow morning.

215.8 5.9  121/70 65

Today Sunny early this morning then a mix of sun and cloud with 30 percent chance of showers this morning. Wind north 30 km/h gusting to 60 becoming light near noon. High 21. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight Cloudy with 60 percent chance of showers. Low 10.

I'm up at five and must be on the road by around seven-thirty.

I showered, ate and packed, and was out the door on time. I drove to Airdrie, had a snack at A&W, parked at Global, and caught my usual cab to the airport.  We're getting to be friends.

I had a coffee in the executive lounge, boarded on time and slept a while. Then I watched an episode of Designated Survivor and then Casablanca.  I never get tired of that movie.

I heard from Larry. 

He and Fraser had found that the bearing on the water pump was bad and that was the cooling issue. Fraser had changed the pump seal last year, but found the bearing good and not changed it. The rule is always change it on general principal.  If the seal leaked the bearing won't last long either.  Bearings are cheap compared to downtime and labour.

I had already called and cancelled the haul-out at Jack's since the cooling issue takes precedence, and the time is short.  Without proper cooling, the boat could not make the trip to Jack's anyhow.

The YYZ connection was routine and Bill was already at the curb when we touched down right on time at YSB.  On the way into town, we stopped at M.I.C for a burger, Caesar salad, and a beer each.  This turned out to be the best restaurant meal I've had in a while.  Not healthy in the least, but very tasty.

I arrived at 1207 and Mom was glad to see me.  She is feeling better, but the problem with walking she encountered last week has her understandably worried and I'm here to see what we can do to mitigate the issue.

This has drawn me away from my West Coast and Mexican plans, not to mention my Swalwell responsibilities -- long grass and neglected bees. I don't know long I'll be here.  It will be as long as it takes.

217.6  7.2

Today: A few showers ending near noon then a mix of sun and cloud with 30 percent chance of showers. Risk of a thunderstorm this morning. Wind becoming northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 this afternoon. High 16. UV index 6 or high.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. 30 percent chance of showers early this evening and overnight. Wind northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Low 8.
I'm up at five and must be gone around seven-thirty.

I woke up at 0621 after sleeping right through. I feel great, best in a long time, but I weigh 217+ this morning and my BG is 7.2. Go figure.

It's great to be home.  I have many homes, but this is my original home, the place where I grew up from as far back as I can remember.  Mom and Dad built this place and we moved here when I was one.   Dad died years ago but Mom has stayed on.

Roseanne came at her usual time and the occupational therapist (OT) came at ten. We had a meeting lasting an hour and a half and made a few decisions but some remain.

After lunch was nap time, then Mom and I went to the Medical Arts Building to have some x-rays.  We had coffee after and returned to 1207.  She is experiencing quite a bit of pain and unless this gets better, we'll be making some changes.

The OT had said she saw us last year and Mom and I both thought thought it was more like several years. I checked the diary and it turned out she was right.  It was February 14th last year.  I had just returned from the Caribbean. On that day we met the OT, then I went kiting and was blown down the lake on my kite and we went out for supper only to find the place was not handicap accessible. I flew home the next day.

It does seem like years.  A lot happened last year. I bought Shongololo and fixed her up. I took the instructors' clinic. I went to Bucerias to have my teeth capped.

While I was there, Shongololo sunk. I delivered yachts all summer, off and on.  I sailed Desolation Sound in September and then decided in October to buy a boat, sight unseen, in La Paz, a place I had never been. I made friends there, fell down and probably had a concussion.

I traveled back and forth to Mexico three times after that and once to Aliso Viejo for Thanksgiving, went skiing twice, and I am probably forgetting something...

Oh, yeah.  I've been here a few times and sailed to Little Current and back at the time of Bill and Faye's party in August.

To be continued...

This concludes my catching up the previously missing entries (above) for the last several weeks.

217.6 6.4

Today Cloudy with 30 percent chance of showers. Wind becoming northeast 20 km/h near noon. High 13. UV index 5 or moderate.
Tonight Cloudy. Rain beginning this evening. Amount 5 to 10 mm. Wind northeast 20 km/h becoming light this evening. Low 9.

I didn't sleep well until after one.  It was hot and my mind was active. I listened to Spanish lessons and drifted off, but woke again after a while.  Finally, I took Benadryl and slept through until 0630, got up and went back to bed and did not wake until 0835.

It's raining this morning, quite heavily at times.  I hear Roseanne downstairs, so I don't have to go down right away.  Sid is bringing coffee over at 0930 and then Mom goes out to get her hair done at eleven. We are expecting delivery of several items ordered by the OT today so someone has to be here until that happens.

Sid came by with coffee and muffins.  We discussed chairs and options for Mom going forward.  He had a lot of experience, living with and caring for my sister over the years.

Mom was to go for a hair appointment, but it was pouring rain and windy.  Moreover, she had dropped her pains were acting up so we called and moved the appointment to tomorrow.

I made lunch and then it was naptime. After, I went to Walmart and stopped by Eastlink to exchange a PVR which Mom never mastered for a regular box and returned to 1207.   I had bought a precooked chicken and made a supper of sweet potato, broccoli and chicken with blueberries and strawberries for dessert.

After supper, I spent the inevitable half-hour on hold while reaching the techs to activate the box, then more time trying to set up the TV.  The Sharp is a fairly new flat screen, but is a 4:3 ratio, and the cable broadcasts seem to be 16:9.  I never could get the picture to fit.  'Stretch' does not stretch to fit.  I'll have to find the manual, I suppose.  I found the TV remote back behind a dresser with dead batteries.  I only need it to make the TV settings.  That job is easier than using the buttons on the  back of the set.

I'm tired and hope to get to sleep earlier tonight, but I am still on west coast time, three hours behind Eastern. Midnight here is only nine on the coast.

I checked with Larry and Just Do It! went out today on charter. They had to replace the raw water pump.
