Boat Oil Change Day One

It has been like a job. The last 3 days or so I have been working on the “Christy Lynn” Well, actually it started about 10 days ago. I worked with Kevin to fix an oils leak that started at the close of fishing season last year.

With all the heavy rains and an active engine oil leak our bilge filled up with oily water. It is nice to be getting the boat ready for spring, but its been a lot of work. Make one repair just to uncover another problem, thats boat ownership.

However, I can’t complain. I work 3 to 4 hour days and my commute is on West Cliff Drive. Just a bit nicer than the 20 plus years commuting on the Altamont Pass!

So, of course I created a short video. My commute to the Harbor, working on the boat and heading home for the evening.

I hope you enjoy.

The Christy Lynn

Retired to Santa Cruz…I had to have a boat.

So my first order f business was to find a new boat and get a slip at the Santa Cruz Harbor.

Now you need to understand I know nothing about boats. Hell, I can’t even swim. But what the heck it has always been my dream to live in Santa Cruz and if your going to don it you may as well go all in.

So I started my research. I was on every boating site I could find. I joined a few boating forums and started asking questions about how and where to start.
