Working In Exotic Ports

Cruising = Working on your boat in exotic ports. Or as I like to say paying the price for enjoying work-free cruising to the cruising gods with personal labor and shiny varnish.

The parts that didn’t get stripped to bare wood only have two more coats. The pieces with new varnish still have about 6-8 coats to go. Ain’t nothing, but a thang. And the two rebuilt hatches got their first two coats of varnish as well. I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Where is Jilly during all this? Not around any varnish…she sheds. Picking hair out of wet varnish is bad enough, but sanding hair out of dried varnish…….Priceless!

Now it’s time sto sit back and enjoy a few days off to enjoy Christmas. Then it’s back to work.

A Wonderful Gift

Anne Frank once said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” The joy felt when you give to someone less fortunate is something that enriches every aspect of your life and at this time of year giving seems to be in the forefront of everyone’s minds. But, what if, instead of giving yet another necktie to your father or another ugly Christmas sweater to mom you gave them the gift of giving? What if you made a donation in their name to help children on the remote islands of Fiji to realize their dream of reading?

The Dazzler Crew is working very hard to raise money to help fill the empty bookshelves we’ve seen in these remote villages across the islands of Fiji and we can use all the help we can get. Currently, at $456 we’ve raise just a small portion of our goal of $3500. We know you all are busy with the holidays but we humbly ask you to consider making even a small donation. Do it in the name of someone you love and care about and let them experience the joy of giving. 100% of all donations will go to buying these books. In addition to buying books on our own we will also take care of all the expenses of getting them to the children. And, once delivered we will be posting photos and videos so you and your loved ones can see what a wonderful difference you’ve made in the world.

Thanks for your support!
