Dwindling Time and a Mercator 30

The official end of the season for me comes December 6, when we have Surprise hauled out for the season. We left her in last year so we're due for some bottom work this off-season. Not sure what this off-season's project is going to be yet but I'm sure I'll be finding out soon.

Unless I buy a fixer-upper boat myself in which case, I'll have plenty of off-season work, but not on Surprise. I'm planning to look at another boat this Sunday. I'm really going with no expectations because I'm finding that's the best way to look at boats. It helps keep my eyes open I think.

Its a Mercator 30 down here in Maryland. I'll let you guys know how she looks. There isn't much info out there about Mercators. It appears that only 38 or so of them were made which makes it incredibly difficult to find out much about them. From what I've read, they are supposed to be great offshore boats. I'll let you know what I find out!

Cat vs. Alligator - Who Do You Think Would Win?

When I think about a cat against an alligator, I'm really just waiting for the alligator to eat the cat.

Zombies & My Novel

So the plan for my novel was to make it a political zombie thriller. Not sure if thats how it will turn out but you never know. Unlike what EVK4 SuperbBlog suggests, I don't think I will have them go sailing too soon into the story because that would make the book way too short. Why Zombies? you might ask... Personally, I have always been fasinated by the zombie genre and I guess I saw the movie "Dead Snow" too recently (its about Nazi/Snow Zombies-Awesome!). Anyhow, I'm pretty behind in the wordcount so I am gonna get to that. Hope everyone enjoyed their extra hour of sleep!
