The Weather Wimps of San Diego…

An actual headline from the local newspaper today:  “Sweltering Heatwave Grips San Diego!”

It’s going to be…are you ready?… 85 Degrees!!!!  Such torture!  How will we survive?

But aside from the local’s intolerance of a moderately warm day, it is a pretty amazing place from the water side. The level of infrastructure here for sailing and boating is unlike any other place I have ever seen, with the possible exception of Annapolis, Maryland.  Pretty much everything you could ever imagine needing for a boat or ocean fishing is available within a mile or two of our current location.  The manufacturer of our wind-vane steering gear is located just a few miles away in La Jolla.  We’ll be visiting him for parts on Monday.

Our electronic autopilot parts are on their way, and I have done some more work on the engine, and fixed most of the deck leaks we found while beating through the waves on our way here.  I am managing two or three projects a day.  Overall, we are very happy with the boat’s progress, although delivery of some items is a bit slower than we’d wish for.

The fishing boats are coming in loaded with tuna, mahi-mahi, and wahoo.  The unseasonably warm water has the fish hanging around later in the season and in greater numbers than normal.
