The mainsheet car got a little mangled over the Summer so it was time for a facelift. You can't see the stress cracks on the bail but trust me they are there. As you guessed a new one is insanely expensive for something that is not even built very well. Along with the price in the future I would like to upgrade the entire track to the next size up so making a car investment right now didn't seem right. Kicking around a few ideas, most adding up to to much money, I decided on a rebuild.

Winter repairs

We have had a cracked piece of teak that holds our sliding companionway hatch down since the beginning. However, with the current way we enter the boat during winter we step on it more and more and it finally, it gave way.

Delicious Red Quinoa Burger Recipe

Images Source:

I've been craving a red quinoa burger since we've left California (The Riders Club Cafe, you've left your mark!) so I decided tonight on my way home from yoga it was time to replicate my dearly missed vegetarian burger. If you haven't tried one yet I highly recommend them. They are a delicious healhty alternative to a beef burger and easy to make!

What you need:

1 cup uncooked red quinoa
2 cups water
2 green onions (including white part) - chopped
1 shredded carrot
2 eggs
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
a few teaspoons of oil (I used coconut oil and would definitely recommend it)
