Those that have been following the exploits of Le Chat Beaute know I recently had hernia surgery. Well, NO MORE. I invested in the ultimate crank. A 28 volt 1/2 inch drive Milwaukie electric motor. Now I hoist the mainsail , lift the dinghy and roll in head sail with this amazing device. I purchased all parts on Ebay and Larry Johnson brought it from the outside on his last trip down to the boat. It easily lifts the dinghy with the 15 hp Yamaha attached. So no excuses now for not lifting at night. As we say...lift it, lock it or lose it!
Please notice I am wearing all my sun protection regalia.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
