As many of your know the site was down for way too long and it was only due to the help of Craig Brenizer (Member P69) that the site is back up and running.  He has agreed to also be a volunteer admin to help keep the site from crashing again. I couldn't figure it out...and the internet host wasn't helping.  So Craig did the dirty work of figuring out what was wrong and made the fix.

Special thanks to Craig!

So here I am updating the "For Sale" notices I have posted around on the various sailing and cruising websites and a thought hit me: Why not rent THIRD DAY rather than sell her? Oh I know…there are boat insurance issues with renting and I’ve already called my insurance company to have them give me a price quote (and they didn’t laugh me off the phone).

The questions then become:

Is there someone out there that would want to rent a fully outfitted cruising boat for a month or for the summer in the Sea of Cortez during the prime cruising season?

Is there someone out there looking for a summer vacation of their lives?

Is there someone out there that wants to try out the “cruising lifestyle” without having to buy and ready a boat?

My gut tells me that there is and that I could be better off financially in renting THIRD DAY rather than selling her. [Important note: this is my gut talking here and it has not been calibrated by the all so important Admiral yet]

This type of thinking outside the box either makes you a genius if it works out or gets you committed to a nut house and since many of our friends are checking into vacancies at many of the leading mental health facilities for me after our bigger boat buy, why not give them the evidence to go all the way!

So if you are interested, shoot me an email at, let’s talk!

Online Marine Equipment Vendors / Island Planet Sails
« on: February 20, 2010, 09:09:38 PM »
While out here cruising, we met the owner of Island Planet Sails, Dave.  In addition to being a great guy, he really knows his stuff about sails, and can make some great sails (for racing or Cruising) at some of the best prices I've seen.

Any Pearson owner out there looking for some new sails, it would be well worth your time to vist Dave's website and have him give you a quote.

Pearson 365/367 Yacht Club / New Cruising DVD: A Cruisers Christmas
« on: November 05, 2009, 03:49:42 PM »

It's been quite a long time in the making, but our first DVD Production is now ready for sale, having just received word from the publisher that the completed DVD have been mailed this morning. 

A Cruisers Christmas is a compilation of the best sunrise, sunset and anchorage video and photos taken during our last year of cruising Mexico and set to classic Christmas music instrumentals.  This isn’t a fast pace action thriller, however, if you would like to pop in a 50 minute DVD during the holiday season and listen to relaxing Christmas music while images of what the cruising lifestyle is all about fill your big screen T.V., then A Cruisers Christmas is for you. 

The cost including USPS standard shipping is $23, with the proceeds going to help the crew of THIRD DAY keep their cruising kitty in the black.  Ordering is simple, by making a $23 payment to the following PayPal account:

Fair winds and Flowing Seas.

Pearson 365/367 Yacht Club / 365 Days of Living the Cruising Dream

General Photos / THIRD DAY's Trip on a Party Barge
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:46:15 PM »
Well they say, "When in Mexico", so we took a trip on a huge party barge that docks on the same marina finger as THIRD DAY.  We befrinded some of the crew, so they invited us aboard.  It was an interesting experience to say the least...and we had a great time.

General Photos / New Fuel Fills, Racor Filter, and tank Photos
« on: July 08, 2008, 02:57:50 PM »
The Next two photos are of my new Diesel deck fills.  When I replaced my rusted out original fuel tank, I put in two 23gals and decided to keep the two tanks seperate.  I have always Hated the location of the diesel fill...every tried filling the tank from a jerry can in rought seas?  So I moved them to the cockpit, as seen below.

Now....ignore the temporary electrical wires and unfinished Watermaker/Generator installation but this is my new Racor filter and manafold to select between the port and starboard fuel tank.

Here are a few photos of the new tanks (pay no attention to the lose piece of wook block in the photo or the loose stuff everywhere....everythings a work in progress while getting ready to go Cruising!)  You can see the seperate fuel fills for both tanks.

The pump you see is the raw water pump for my water maker...more on that later!  You can also see how the original fuel tank boards had to be trimmed to allow for installation of the new tanks.

The vent line for the two tanks was tied together.  Each tank has a seperate return and lift tube.

This is somewhat of a messy photo, but you guys know how it can start to look when you cut all the zip-ties and support starps lose!  You can see the original cut off fuel fill hose, the new (yet to be wrapped) exhaust pipe, and some other messy stuff, just begging to be organized!
