Like a curmudgeonly old friend you like more than you let on, the bite of Marlow #4 whipping twine has been nipping at my digits, especially my right little finger, as I whip the ends of the main halyard, sheet, and vang. I also spliced eyes into them, and even remembered to run the line through the shackles and blocks that needed to be permanently attached. I’ll also apply a throat whipping (google it – it’s nothing odd… I promise!) to each eye splice, but probably not until after the Everglades Challenge, as I prefer the lines take a load and set before I cinch the splices.

- “There aren’t too many small boat voyagers left, and we are they. Those of us with experience sailing, paddling, and rowing light expeditionary craft on adventuresome treks have a bit of a duty to set good, seamanlike examples to those who are paying attention to what we do, both to further the passion, and ensure that those who follow our path do so in safety. For they, in turn, will be the ones to further the passion in years to come.”
