Beautiful fall time in Georgia. #familyadventure #fall #colorfulleaves #northgamountains #helengeorgia #annarubyfalls #sailboatstoryonland
Doing a bit of light maintenance on our water tank. I sawed the lid off the tank. Yep. After Irma, I noticed what looked like loose flakes of paint in the bottom of the water tank. Lots of them. I’ve got to re-line the interior of the tank with food-grade epoxy. I was hoping to pry the lid off, but the sealant was not budging. Turns out that some of the lid was rotting anyways. So... now I have to chisel the edges of the lid off the fiberglass, clean and seal the interior of the tank, and completely fabricate a new lid for this sucker. #SailboatStory #boatrepair #endeavour32 #endeavour #sailboat

We spotted this guy just hanging out in the long term storage yard at our marina. #sailboatstory #familyadventure #armytruck #greencovesprings #florida #historylesson • • LARC-LX 43 An example of the U.S. military’s largest amphibious craft, the LARC-LX (lighter, amphibious, resupply, cargo) came in three sizes, ranging in size from 5 ton (LARC v) to the LX, capable of transporting 60 tons from ocean to inland, across heavy seas and up inclines as steep as 60 degrees. It remains the only amphibian in the current inventory able to enter and exit the shore through breaking surf. Outfitted with 4 Detroit Diesel engines, twin props, and four wheel drive with two or four wheel steering, the LARC-LX could go just about anywhere and carry whatever could fit in its cavernous cargo bay. The only real limitation was its immense size - length is over 62', width is 26', and height is almost 20'! The tires are 9' high. With a 75' turning radius, the LARC is surprisingly agile.
