Note from member Richard Pierce: “Thought you might like to know there is a big spread about our boat (Arianna, 1970 Alaskan 46) in the October issue of PassageMaker (www.passagemaker.com). We also have a blog at https://alaskan46forsale.shutterfly.com that has more of the story and many photos that the members might find interesting.”

I recently replaced the steering cable between the flybridge and the lower helm on Archimedes, our Grand Banks 42. The project was surprisingly easy and inexpensive. Since many of our Grand Banks are getting on in years, I though the process might be of interest. It’s a fairly long post. Rather than post it all here, I’ll just point you to my blog for all the details.
This article was written by Rusty Lewis of the Archimedes and originally appeared on his blog.
Archimedes came to us with fluorescent overhead lighting. The fixtures are about 12 inches long and built into recesses in the ceiling. Each fixture holds one ten watt tube. Sadly, they don’t produce much light. In fact, a previous owner went so far as to line the insides of the recesses with aluminum foil in the hope that would reflect a bit more light. I don’t think that was terribly effective. The tubes just don’t put out much light.
In 2010, Lynne Thompson, did a presentation at the Rendezvous on Organizing Boat Records. It was an excellent presentation and I thought you may want to take a look at it again. This would be a great winter project while we await the glorious summer cruising months.
Check out the link on the 2010 Rendezvous Wrap Up page for Lynne Thompson’s fantastic talk on “Organizing Boat Records”. It is available online, in a pdf format so we all can access it, save it and or print it.
