I first pulled my rudder out of the boat by digging a hole in the dirt ground so my rudder can drop out. Then I pulled the propeller shaft and took the rudder and propeller shaft to a machine shop to have the rudder straightened and a new prop shaft built. I also had the machine shop make extra mounting plates for my new solar panels. My head (toilet) was frozen (motor) so I pulled that out to replace it with a new one that I had on the boat for a couple of years.

    Time between posts appears to be increasing – not because nothing has been happening, but perhaps rather because too much has been happening. 2014 has marked a handful of significant events: [essentially] losing my father, speaking at the DO Lectures, bootstrapping a fairly significant event on digital privacy, and becoming boat-less for the first time since 2006, with the sale of SV Harmony last month. For those unfamiliar, the DO Lectures are small gatherings of people who collect in tipis and tents, in rural spaces for three untethered days – Wales, California, and most…

    9 Nov 2013 | 9:59 pm
    15nm out of American Samoa, the wind died, and the sun set. The forecast showed zero wind for the next several days, and I was forced to start the engine or drift. I started up the engine at nightfall, and Chris attempted to sleep through the racket, as I sipped coffee and steered into the shore lights of Samoa. Everything happens slowly at sea, especially when it comes to making landfall. When in the deep ocean I have the odd sensation of feeling very safe, yet carry a deep underlying fear at the same time. Near land, my fear turns into pure anxiety and practicality – suddenly there…

    We hauled anchor out of Hiva Oa, raised the mainsail, and keenly watched our repaired boom under full canvas. Was that flex? How much flex is too much flex? How strong is this wood boom compared to the original aluminium extrusion? Who knew. Powering downwind between Hiva Oa and Tahuata, we spotted a sailing boat in the distance, as it vanished into an inlet on the lee of the island. With good wind and several hours of daylight left, we decided to meander around the corner and see what the anchorage looked like. On approach the masts appeared, along with a small white beach lined in palm…

    As you know, Apple has App Store and jailbreakers have Cydia download Store. Similar to Apple’s App Store, Cydia is famous among jailbreakers since it provides the resources they need however; it is worth mentioning the fact at Cydia was the first App Store to be released.

  • Can Activation Lock From Apple Be Passed?

    Owen
    5 Jun 2014 | 5:59 am
    Two hackers have apparently found a means to avoid Apple’s “Activation Lock” attribute in iOS 7, which demands an Apple ID and password to reactivate whether a mobile is remotely wiped. The iPhone or iPad is then tricked into connecting to the hacked server, which unlocks the gadget. Team DoulCi promises to have built the system “with love” for people who have recovered their lost or stolen iDevice, in a effort to regain access to contacts, e-mail, notes, and more. But, as the SecurityWatch pointed out, that’s probably not this hack will be used. A cursory…

    My sources tell me that the America's Cup will be held in Bermuda in 2017.   The announcement should come later today from Team Oracle.  Speaking under the condition of anonymity, they went on to say that San Diego just does not have enough wind to fly these beasts (their words).  While their is little shock to their decision, it is disappointing that SF was dropped from contention due to the fact that Larry and the SF City Council did not get along.  Larry made some promises that he later bowed out of and the City claimed they were $11m in the hole after the races…

    During the SF Americas Cup, they staged a weekend regatta with some of the top young sailors from around the planet.  They used the 45' cats that had been part of the World Cup races.  If you remember, the Oracle boats were being inspected for these races and they found some illegal weights in the bows that gave Oracle an edge in the light winds.   This resulted in a 2 race penalty for Oracle during the finals.  Even though they had won 3 races. Oracle was down 8-1 when they made some adjustments to the boat and crew and came back to win it all.  I digress, check out…

    18 Nov 2014 | 6:11 am
    A new invention looks set to change Scuba and diving in general. It’s shocking task lies in the idea of microscopic, nano scale ‘artificial Gills’, can effectively separate the oxygen from the water while diving, on demand. A series of tiny threads or strands have microscopic holes along their width, which are smaller than water molecules.It’s called the ‘Triton Oxygen Respirator‘ (Image Below), a miniature but incredible device that will do away for the need to move bulky tanks on dives, and allow the dives to last much, much longer than can be had with current equipment.

    The wind was up and all seemed well until I got a ways out to sea. From that point it was apparent that the wind was going to continue from the north making it clear to me that I could only sail north west close hauled. After a couple hours I got about five miles out and then the wind promptly stopped! So much for getting anywhere today. I watched the sun go down and then darkness came on. I could do nothing but take the sails down and wait for the wind. But there was nothing but sheer calm all night!I took notice of all the land sights and lights around me. Tonight I decided…

As I climbed up over the four foot sides of the boat, and then proceeded to set my things down in the cockpit, I looked out to sea just in time to see a glorious sunset.

    When it comes time to book a sailing charter many seasoned sailors are well aware of the fact that you don’t have to book directly from a larger operator. Brokers can often help you find the very best deal around, especially if you’re willing to go on slightly shorter notice. Just like the people who have become experts at finding the cheapest flights on the internet, sailors are becoming much savvier when it comes to finding the best prices; much of this has to do with the broker. So how do you choose your broker? There are many new bareboat charter companies that have recently come…

    7 Nov 2014 | 3:26 am
    The Bahamas are a set of low-lying islands off the southeast coast of Florida, north of Cuba and the Dominican Republic. What is particularly interesting about them is that they were not formed by any volcanic activity, making them low-lying far-reaching islands with long sweeping sandy beaches. One of the coolest aspects of the Bahamas’ formation and geography is the formation of blue holes. These occur when the ceilings of massive limestone caves collapse, resulting in a circular expanse of deep blue water visible from the sky. The blue holes are located both inland and in the open ocean…
