We are splicing challenged no longer. Our friend Peter came through as promised and had us banging off eye splices (under his supervision) without problem. He also showed us how to make a Crown Splice, and to seize the end of the rope with whipping twine. I did try another eye splice this morning with some more-difficult-to-control rope. It was tougher but I still managed to get the pattern. It’s very Zen-like. Much like Macrame. 🙂

Rebecca’s foray into the world of Wonderwash yesterday worked out fine. The product delivered clean clothes as promised and was easy enough to work with. Obviously learning how to use it and how much water to add took a little bit of time. Things should go much smoother next time.
Down on the dock to more easily fill it with water. We would normally just use it on the boat though.
Last night’s entertainment consisted of watching the 1996 movie White Squall. Whenever people bring up good sailing movies this seems to be in the top ten. When I googled for info on white squalls, the storm which the movie is named after, it seems they can be found on the Great Lakes! Knock on wood that we don’t run into such a beast!
