Sailing with friends new and old

The groundhog may have said we have have six more weeks of winter weather but Mother Nature must have ignored the memo. February 12th a few friends, both old and new, got together to go sailing on Mo’mento, Anne Girven’s Beneteau 323.

The skies were bright blue, the mountains standing out proud, and the wind a perfect 8-14 knots all afternoon. Mo’mento joyfully swept us back and forth across Puget Sound, from Shilshole to Bainbridge, from Bainbridge to Spring Beach. It was a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a weekend doing something you love with great people around you.

Inspired story behind the Seattle Pink Boat Regatta cancer fundraiser

For the past few years I have been participating in the annual Pink Boat Regatta, a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The event is faithfully put on each year by Ashley Bell. This evening I ran across an article where she writes about why she became involved in the Pink Boat Regatta here in Puget Sound. It is a very inspiring read.

Camco EVO water filter review

Since moving onto the boat my wife had been complaining about the water taste. It seemed fine to me but I picked up a Camco EVO water filter to see if it would make her happy. It really improved the water quality! Even I noticed.

The Camco EVO water filter is designed as a simple inline water filter, mostly for RVers. Very easy to set up, just drop in the filter, connect a water inlet hose, and connect the outlet hose to the boat. The longest part of the operation was determining where to put the filter.

Immediately the water taste significantly improved. The wife is happy with it and I highly recommend the filter. The manufacturer recommends replacing the filter every 3 months of use and we did. It definitely was working. Check out the following  photo of the nasty brown used filter compared to the clean new filter.

Legalise(ish)….I was not provided this product or asked to review it.
