Chaise Longue….=In modern French the term chaise longue can refer to any long reclining chair such as a deckchair……. is nearly always written and pronounced as “chaise lounge”, a 19th-century folk-anagrammatic adaptation of the term.
Bum…= yours truly!
Some sailing blog, eh! I’ll explain shortly. I got some pics so lets do that first. Kostas boat is coming along…. slowly. But when I went down last Sunday, he handed me over the new fabricated bushings for the windvane’s vane axle (god know if I’m describing this correctly).
I thought teflon was the way to go but they made it out of some other stuff (I hate chemistry and material science). But they fit like a glove… sweet! Just a bit too long and the top one would cover the hole where a safety screw goes. No prob. Cut the top one shorter and the end result.
Also used a tad of sealant so they wont pop out. The safety screw…. I’ll get a bag of them due to my certaincy of them suckers falling overboard! Other none pictured gigs…. the v-berth is back together and a new wire for the nav lights is passed through the front railings so the main leak is a “rap”.
NOW…. getting back to the post title. I’m getting very little Zoot Allures time on my weekends. Usually working one of the days, so after a 6 day work week (finishing a piano album… 650 edits!), I’m pretty much spent! Plus my buddy Percules was moving so I was helping him out alot. And THAT is where the Chaise Longues come into play. He was throwing them out so I found them a new home. In the boat yard! So you can imagine how much they’ve been utilized!!! Everyone loves them!
So now you’ve got a reason to…
Stay Tuned… and sprawl out on your fav Chaise Longue!
ps…. on a more serious note. I’m planning on splashing end of May/early June. It’s getting way too hot for being on the hard!
