It's sad news about Al Peterson, ex-Kedge 37VT43, who died this week at the age of 93. Al and Rie bought Kedge new in 1986, cruised her extensively, and just, reluctantly, sold her six months ago. His was a life well lived. Our condolences to Rie and their family. The following was written by Al's longtime friend's at the St. Croix Marina.

I took the boarding ladder to a local welding shop to make a folding 2 step extension. I then attached a retrieval cord and created a velcro latch to hold it closed while in the engine room. I have not had a chance to test it out but this will mean we have 3 full steps in the water. Even an old man like me will be able to re-board, problem solved.
The total bill was just under $500 for material and labor and it took 10 ft of SS tubing.

John Niccolls, ex-Knock Off 37VT66, on the flying bridge of his new Monk 36. Just delivered Mary Alyce from Great Bridge, Virginia to her new homeport of Herrington Harbor South, MD.
The flying bridge was abandoned when the sun and the temperatures fell. But operations continued smoothly at the lower steering station throughout the night. The radar proved invaluable for avoiding the abundant commercial traffic. The 150 mile, 18 hour trip came to a successful conclusion at 0400 hrs. How often can a skipper say he's got more night hours on his boat than day hours?

It is too hard for a small person to get the supplied ladder out of the engine room and fix it on the bulwark.
This came to mind after watching a much older couple trying to get back on their sailboat even with a stern ladder!
Only thing I would change is to make the tubing a little smaller. But it fits over easily and it all stores in lazarette. $89 at local steel fab.

Last year I put a boarding ladder on Easy Goin II. It was never Equipped with a boarding ladder from the start. All our boating is in Lake Huron/Georgian Bay with lots of swimming, so boarding ladder was very important to us. I am very pleased with the results I purchased a Garelick 6 step over platform telescoping ladder. See pictures.

Victory was securely attached to the pier with extra lines but they were not needed. The winds were very localized down here; a few miles south of me trees were down but luckily we did not have any major damage.
