Little Bear Westsail 32 refit: Glass & Bilgey Blog# 146

Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.

Some more lovely liquid joinery. I just love working with epoxy. Oh the wonders of modern chemistry.  It makes all-thumbs schlubs like me able to fix things.

Good thing I have a background in electronics.  It’s been many years since I sat at a workbench and wired things up but that training has served me well here on Little Bear.

I did get the pump & switch installed and gave it a test run. It’s fun to see water shooting out of the boat. Like it has to take a pee or something.



As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.


Bilge Cat troubles

The bilge cats have been rampaging and pillaging their weasely black guts out. Which all self-respecting bilge cats should.  However, they ran into their nemesis.  A great whale of a cat whose pom-poms need to be removed, savvy?

So, said evil Tom has bitten and left abscessed wounds on both bilge cats. This has cost me in the region of 600 gold doubloons. The Dread Pirate Biff is not impressed.  I have enlisted the support of an ally in the form of a vet. If I get my hands on that evil Tom, he’s going to have his pom-poms forcibly removed from his stern and for free to boot… AAaaarrrr don’t be messin’ wiv me crew now, y’hear?

And if that Tom is yours – don’t be so stinkin’ irresponsible with your live-stock.
