Today was spent inside watching the leaves fly around the yard as Hanna skirted by. No great damage as the wind only got to about 50 mph tops. We rented Pirates - At World's End on DVD. Talk about way too much lift on the rudder!

Meanwhile, in the real Caribbean, category 4 hurricane Ike is roaring like a lion, heading toward the north shore of Cuba. In all likelihood Ike will miss the east coast of the US but will make his presence known in the Gulf next week.

Tomorrow, I'm going sailing. The breeze is forecast to be 15-20 and last time out I had a bit too much lift in the stern causing the rudder to spin out so tomorrow I'll try a scooch less angle on the rudder foil. Stay tuned.
