Over the course of the week we sailed most days, studied and tested for the ASA courses. By the end of the week we had passed all our tests, and sailed solo a few times. But, on Friday morning we had asked Mike to come back and run through a few things with us. He had already signed off on our certifications by then and told us to sail out, have some fun, anchor out one evening near by and then we could sail or whatever on Saturday. The instruction on Friday morning was during rather calm breezes and the day was supposed to remain pretty calm — so we were confident when Mike finished with us that we were going to do just fine.
So — run we did, The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl). It was great. We sailed for about an hour into the bay and decided we were pretty tired from most of the work that week and wanted to just relax so we turned around and started tacking back. Then the wind started getting shifty and pretty soon I was doing my best to keep the sails in the right position while she drove the boat.
At one point we got caught trying to drive upwind — and of course, we stalled out. Then the winds changed, quickly. From one direction to another and we saw others having trouble as well.
Before I could sheet in the main, it shifted off port and the boom whipped wildly to the starboard side ripping the mainsheet out of my hand. Before I knew what happened a loud explosion rocked our senses. JoAnne let out a yell and I struggled to recover the main sheet as it headed over the side of the boat, along with the block and tackle which had ripped loose from the traveler.
I yelled to JoAnne to point the boat into the wind at that point as best she could. She was trying. I grabbed the line and shoved it through the big ring on the traveler and cinched it down to a The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl) to be able to hold it until we got the boat under control.
About that time — the strangest thing happened. A dolphin leaped out of the water well above my head, off the starboard side a few feet away. I should mention at this point the jib was already down. JoAnne held the boat to the wind for the amount of time it took me to drop the mainsail and I tied everything down and then discovered that a shackle had practically exploded.
Collected the pieces and we switched positions so I could drive the boat under power back. We discussed for a minute whether we should go back and call it a day, or anchor out.
Sure enough, she found a matching shackle and pin. So I made the decision for us. Anchor out, fix the boat and let the instructor know what happened after we got settled in. So — we did. Held all night even though I checked it throughout the night and the boat swung through over degrees through the night. Other boats did the same nearby us. We left a message for the instructor. She did the vacuuming and I had cleaned the cushions, and their covers, and recovered them myself because, man that is some heavy foam they put in them.
Oh well…. I still have a table to build. The old one was damaged, even broken. It needs to serve as the flooring as well to form a bed area where you would normally sit to eat inside the boat.
So we head out on the first weekend of April for San Diego. The one thing I liked it one instructor for two people, and they seem to specialize in couples so this suits my wife and I. I also replaced the bow running lights. The old stuff simply fell apart when I started to examine it, so I replaced the front with LED lights. Probably a bit of overkill for this small boat, but I want to be able to add a few circuits, to include a couple of radios Amateur as well as control all the lights separately.
Probably do that after we put the boat in the water for the first time. We also raised our sails up and looked them over. The jib needs repair. Otherwise, they will be fine for a couple more seasons. The other thing to do this week is replace the lettering for the state registration, and put my state sticker on the boat. Foam is expensive…. We will be back from school after the second week of April. The third week, I hope to put the boat in the water for her first sail since she came out of Blue Mesa.
My family has been invited, as has the previous owner if he wishes to come, and a couple of friends. If nothing else, my wife and I will have a nice quiet fun time of naming the boat, and sailing her that afternoon.
We purchased a new GPS unit. Has coastal charts and can add a memory card and other maps — so we will be adding some inland maps later on.
Ok, well, Mast Work. Over the course of the last week I manufactured a gin pole, found some good rope and prepped that, found some double pulley blocks, brackets and assorted hardware and have been assembling, drilling, and generally laying things out.
After awhile, I was ready. Steve lives a couple blocks away from me these days. I asked him to pin the front stay when the mast was raised. Once I double checked for the fourth or fifth double-check of the day all the shrouds, stays, connections, bolts…. It moved easily, and rather quickly. The mast raised into place and settled into position. Steve had problems. The forestay bracket was almost exactly one half and inch too short to make it to the front bracket. He suggested laying the mast back down.
I told him to stand by a minute. JoAnne tied off the line for the block and tackle and Steve remained there to hold the forestay to keep the mast in place. I climbed down, surveyed the problem and realized that we were pulling on the mainsail halyard used it to haul up the mast actually from the end of the gin pole.
I saw that the jib halyard pulley is about 3 inches above where the forestay connects to the mast. So, I told Steve to prepare to pin the bracket. I climbed aboard, had JoAnne give us a tug on the block and tackle, I tied off one end of the jib halyard, grabbed the free end and pulled. The mast bowed slightly in the middle, gave Steve the half inch and a bit more he needed, he bolted the pin into place and viola!
We had mastage! The mast will remain in place for a couple of weeks in the yard while I check sails, pulleys have checked them on the ground, but need to make sure it all works as it should, The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl).
Perhaps it will The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl) usable. Finished up the deck, where the Mast Step is located, after removing all the hardware I re-glasses, sanded and painted the surface. I added a new overheard brace between the beam and the overhead, redrilled all the holes for the brackets on the mast step and then checked all the The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl) on the shrouds, stays and so forth.
I have mounted a swivel bracket to the base of the mast, modified a long pole to become my gin pole and did a couple of tests. I need a couple of good, solid, double-pulleys and about feet of new rope for the block and tackle, then we can step the mast for the first time. Going to pick up the rope today and get some pictures of me raising the mast for the first time. If I get this right, JoAnne will be able to easily raise the mast as well herself without any help from me.
I still need to build some kind of a roller assembly at the stern of the boat over which we can raise the mast to make it sit properly and at the right angle to put the step pin through. Also, I need to build a good, solid bridle or harness to hold the gin pole as everything is coming up and into place. Should, with luck and if the weather holds out, have that all working this weekend. We pulled all the old cushions out and checked them, washed the covers and will put them back together sometime soon.
Picked up a small, leather-bound note book to keep records and notes for myself. I have repaired the deck where the mounting for the mast goes. Had to remove the hardware and then sanded it down to remove the surface paint, then reglassed the upper part under the mast housing. The problem there was leaking from one of the bolts, which had rotted the inside overhead, the wood on the overhead and carpet.
The bracing beam was fine so I added a heavy piece of ply wood, pounded the beam back in place and remounted all the hardware. We tried to step the mast this weekend but could not due to the boat being too far back in the back and the mast being long enough to prevent raising it. I want to have the boat prepared by the end of March to put her in the water.

I was listening to the news, I was seeing the election coming the following year, but honestly, I was dead set on getting my new — old boat prepared for spring, and myself ready for classes or something.
Life was coming at us fast and furiously, and we were meeting it, parrying quickly, and the occasional riposte would drive back whatever evil we were facing. Not that we face evil often, but sometimes you know it lurks in the dark, deep and foreboding night time just beyond your vision. But then, as usual, I am getting a bit ahead of myself.
For instance one day I removed all the old wood from the boat. The more I removed, the ugly things got. Along with the brace beneath. So I did. Damage under the tabernacle — Ouch. She needs the rest of the cockpit finished been painting it. Remember, we live at about feet above sea level now. I hope I remember it next week…. In Matthew Jesus compared his coming like the light that would shine from east to westjust like the WAY, and the winds from east to west.
Many believe this to be a short period of time right before the coming of the Lord. But in Revelation we see the Lord said he would come in the clouds ; and every eye shall see himthey also that pierced him.
You wonder how this could be possible, how all eyes shall see his coming, even those who have pierced him some 1, years ago? Well, when you understand that Jesus is the very Word of God made flesh, and that these clouds are peoples of witness who would carry this message of salvation over a determined amount time; then you can see this Way the Lord made from east and west is much longer than you think, as it is based on time.
Jesus said the Gospel would be preached to all Nations, and then comes the end. Truly by the Grace given to me through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I confess that these winds of change are soon to blow, which shall bring forth a mighty tempest across the land. Last edited: Jun 27, Jun 27, We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today? Jun 27, 2. Jun 27, 3. Jun 27, 4. Heweeps, consider the prophecy of Revelation when the Great river Euphrates is dried up to make way for the Kings of the east.
The word great in scripture usually refers to the Nations. Notice the direction the Kings come from, which is from the east ; also take note of the river Euphrates itself.
In Matthew we saw the wise men that came to see the new born Kingcame from the east. If you go to Genesis you will see the borders given from west to east of the promised land shown to Abram, which was to be given to his seed. Notice the border was from the river of Egypt, to the great river Euphrates. In Genesis you will see there was a river that flowed out of Eden, and from there it parted into 4 heads, or 4 rivers.
Notice the 4th river is the river Euphrates, which represents the 4th generation. If you go back to Genesis you will see the Lord promised Abram that in the 4th generation his people would return to the land. And if you back up to Genesis you will see the 4th animal Abram was told to gather was the dove this represents that 4th generation. In Luke after Jesus was baptised of John the heavens opened and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shapein the form of a dove.
Again this is the sign of the 4th generation, just like the Euphrates was the same sign of the 4th river. This is the sign of the anointing of the Body of Christ in the last days.
In John after Jesus had recieved the anointing of the Holy Spirit, Jesus told his disciples that they shall see heaven openand the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man. This is the same sign, showing how Gods heavenly host of angels, or ministering spirits, shall come into the Body of Christ to testify of the Truth.
This is marvellous sign of how the Lords 2 witnesses are soon to be poured out upon the Body of Christ; which are his elect, and his anointed priesthood. We who are in Christ, make up that Kingly priesthood. These 2 witnesses were shown to us in Numbers ; they were Eldad and Medad, these 2 witnesses prophesied from within the campwhile the rest of the prophets were outside the camp. These 2 witnesses come from above, from within the heavenly camp. These 2 witnesses are Gods Word and Spiritthe "beloved of the Lord" that shall prophesy in the Lords "great cloud of witness.
Like x 1 List. Jun 28, 5. Revelation And I will give power unto My two witnessesand they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. Jun 28, Jun 28, 6. You are thinking along the same lines, it is like Gods 2 witnesses Word and Spirit working within a much greater multitude of witnesses. You ever notice when the prophets heard the voice of the Lord in a vision it was the sound of a great multitudeor the sound of many waters.
Jun 28, 7. Jun 30, 8. Jun 30, Jun 30, 9. In 1 John ;"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one. Those who are in Christ has this witness in himself. Gods Word and Spirit are those 2 heavenly witnesses that testify of the Truth in Gods host of witness. The Word and Spirit are the 2 anointed ones that stand before The Winds Of Change - Rodd Keith - The Winds Of Change / After The Wind (Vinyl) Lord.
The "Wind of Change" speech was a historically significant address made by the UK Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to the Parliament of South Africa, on 3 February in Cape frasvesivimetse.skodarligeburmantpovazmirapabe.co had spent a month in Africa visiting a number of what were then British colonies.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. I like the use of the direction of the wind to illustrate how we can go with the flow and how we can embrace the bad, when it is against us. It’ll be nice to always have the wind blow in our favor; but as we all know, the wind can change course and some things are just beyond our control.
