Shake, Rattle and Roll

Walking down the stairs this morning I come across one of my favorite bug species. I used to know what they are called but alas, have forgotten.


They always make me happy. This is a baby one.

Down at the boatyard, I am distressed to see people glorying in having slaughtered very rare and soon to be extinct fish.


This should be banned lest the Marlin goes the way of the Dodo. Would people be allowed to hang up dead Rhinos?

I spend a lot of time taping off the areas that I will  paint with anti-slip. This is a delicate job as the corners of said areas are rounded. It is difficult to tape arcs. I think up a very clever little technique, too complicated to explain here, which I think is going to work.


First coat of anti-slip on some of cockpit surfaces.


A reminder

Kiyuna san roars in. We fix up a rig with cooling water, diesel feed, jumper cables to my car’s battery. Kiyuna san touches a wire to the starter motor. There are sparks and she starts!

This wonderful! I have got an overhauled engine.   Thank you Kiyuna san! Thank you Yanmar!

    Asian long-horned (starry sky) beetle (longicorne asiatique in French) ? They don’t like sponge cake.
