Finally posted a pic

It's not a shot of me on the boat, but I finally uploaded a picture taken by my friend Ramez to the About Us page to go along with the cute "wench" shot of Dawn. You can't tell but I'm am wearing my kilt in the picture so I'm also pretty pirate-like in my own way.

On unrelated news, I hurt my rib about 3 weeks ago at hockey and I've been laying pretty low, going to the ND and Accupuncture to quicken the mend. I think I'm getitng back to normal and we should be back in full swing on the refit shortly which means more posts and news to share along the way!

I'm also working on a wiki to go along with the blog. The wiki will replace the "pages" portion of the site and also serve as a place for me to write up documentation about how things work or are configured on Deep Playa. My plan is that I can then print or save the wiki to disk and have a decent manual for the boat.

New Puget Sound Links Page

I added a new page to the site, which is basically a cut and paste from one of old sites (the three generations of the site old). It has has some useful links but the thing I usually like to check out is the West Point weather information. I can look at that while I'm at work and feel bad that I'm stuck in the office and not out sailing. ;-)

Anyway, here's a direct link: http://www.deepplaya.com/page/Puget-Sound-Sailing-Links.aspx, but you can also just go to www.DeepPlaya.com and look at the Pages links on the left hand side.

 BTW, today its sunny and 12kts of wind, definitely a day I'd rathe not be in the office. This weekend I'm going to be changing filters and fluids so we can start the engine and leave the dock when we fill like it. The sailing is just around the corner!!

Page Updates

There are a lot of additions and a  major reorganization to the Pearson Upgrades page. I spent a few hours on this last night. This is one of the pages I keep going back to when I want to figure out how to attack a project on Deep Playa. Its great to have an active group of owners.

I also added some linked to the Pearson Information page for the groups I created on the social networking sites to which I belong:

Web Site Changes

I owe you a write up on the plumbing work and wifi systems I’ve been working on at the boat. That will come, but this morning I made a couple of minor changes to the website. I moved the Flickr photos badge up to the top on the right hand side, and added a Twitter badge to the left hand side.

The twitter account is nice because I frequent take pics with the iPhone and send out little updates when I’m down working on the boat. Which currently is pretty much the only camera I have because my Nikon D50 is on the fritz and the battery in my point and shoot optio is also dead. Cameras and I always have had bad luck. Anyway, check the updates by coming to www.DeepPlaya.com or if you want to follow Deep Playa on Twitter or Flickr here are the links:
