Shelly and I are starting to feel like local Jaguars fans!
This third strait win means Jacksonville could make it into the playoffs!
January 7, 2023 Addendum
Addendum January 14, 2023
OK… Sat night (Jan 21, 2023) addendum:
So the Jaguars fell to the Chiefs 20-27 today. The Jags had several chances to win this game that they could not materialize. But they played a good and respectable game that they can be proud of. We hope Mahomes heals up.
Everyone agrees that the QB, Coach, and whole Team will be one to watch in the next season! Nice job to the locals… nice job Jaguars!
We had a great BBQ lunch with Patty and Gene at the Bearded Pig part of this San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville FL.
Musicians were setting up for a few sets under the gazebo in Balis Park.
What a great part of Jacksonville. Just south of South Riverwalk area. Our hotel is nearby (while the boat is getting worked on.)
With a boat, it often feels like most every day is a project day! But when your boat is on the hard, you gotta find someone else’s project to work on!
So today, I assisted Gene Rutkowski of Galene splice the “good end” of his anchor line to his chain. Splicing 8-Plait anchor line is a good skill to acquire; today we got more practice together!
We tested it thru the electric windlass, and it went through just fine! I found that his 5/16” chain went thru his Lewmar 002 gypsy very smoothly. So what I learned is that the 002 works perfectly well with 5/16” chain. Whereas my 3/8” chain worked “rough” thru my 002 gypsy; the 003 gypsy that came with my new V3 windlass (installed last fall) works much smoother with 3/8”.
The other ‘well worn’ end is now tied inside his anchor locker.
Meal #2 on the new two-burner grill.
Today’s project: install a larger Accumulator Tank!
More pics will follow as this project progresses. So far, we really like the smoother water delivery and the pump seems much happier with its less frequent cycling.
