The Electric Solar Powered Catamaran now has curtains, bed covers and pillow cases. Didn’t Gallagher do well? Surely that means Borderline is ready to sail doesn’t it?

I think it has affected me metally as well and speaking of mentally challenged, how about those midterm elections. Having the […]Read more "ESPcat Mentally Challenged"
The haul-out is complete and we are floating again. Yes the water is a bit murky possibly due to a spring tide but the new waterline looks just about correct. It will be interesting to see how the anti-fouling paint stands up to 12 months of attack by ocean critters. While we were out on […]Read more "ESPcat Floating Again"
