Month: February 2021

Spring is just around the corner.

Well, OK- the view from our marina here at Egg Harbor still looks pretty wintery. The bay of Green Bay is frozen over and hundreds of ice fishing shacks dot the lower bay. Yet, the temps did get above freezing today and pretty mild weather (for February) has set in. So it’s a good time to start planning spring work on the Quickstep. My list? I’ve got a nagging electrical issue to track down and the coamings need stripping and varnishing. Bottom paint was new last year, so at least that won’t be part of the routine this spring. When it’s warm enough, we’ll drag her from the shed and get her ready for another season. Can hardly wait.

In the meantime, I’ve worked on this site a little bit and was finally able to find a way to make adding comments a bit easier. As you know, in the past you’d have to scroll to the end of all of the comments to find the text box for adding something new. As this site has matured, the number of comments has grown to the hundreds making that scrolling extremely tedious. I was never able to discover a way to put the text box for adding comments at the top of any page. And I still haven’t discovered how to do that, but I found a way to modify the site so that only the last 10 or so comments appear on any one page. That means scrolling down will be very quick now. All of the former comments are still here, however. I didn’t want to lose them! At the bottom of each page, there is a link to older comments. Click there and you’ll find all the information we’ve shared with one another in the past.

I am happy to see everyone finding these owner exchanges helpful, and I plan to do a bit more updating to make the site better. You can help by sending me a few pictures if you have them. I’d really like to feature some of your boats here. So if you can, send to me at

Take care, everyone! Be safe!
