… but when I do it, the photos I post will be at least a year old.
Our Beta Marine B60 finally runs (because we finally got around to running it). She purrs.
TL; DR: Maximo Boat Yard in St. Petersburg is the absolute best, and we wouldn’t have been able to get this far without them. Call them up when you need help or boat maintenance on the Gulf side of Florida. We lucked into Maximo Boat Yard this time. Charlie had a few dealings with them […]
We never claimed to be expert wood identifiers. In fact, I believe you can tell how much we’re not expert wood identifiers by my continued use of the phrase “expert wood identifiers.” There’s gotta be a name for that, right?

In early January, Charlie and I prepared to begin the installation of our new Beta Marine sixty horsepower engine and saildrive.

Even blogs that don’t get read have authors who are ashamed of how little they post. This blog is no different. In an attempt to jump start things around here, it’s time for some randoms! Tu madre! I recently rewatched the gem of a film Y Tu Mamá También and, against my better judgement, shared the […]
