While we all talk about the finer points of sail trim, better ways of rigging the boat and other esoteric sailing topics, what many of us hanker for are some simple pleasures afloat. The day’s sail might well have been near perfect, but trying to balance food and drink in the narrow confines of a small boat’s cockpit is an exercise in frustration, not counting cooking it in the first place. I built a removable cockpit dining table for my 1970 Morgan 33 tiller steered boat about ten years ago. This is especially true of Small Craft Advisor readers as we tend toward smaller and more compact boats. One sure-fire way to gain cockpit space and room for both cooking and dining is to add a cockpit table.Our family’s 20-foot Matilda sloop, Ternabout, came equipped with a table for the main cabin. I awoke and went down stairs and walked to the refrigerator to start retrieving what I had prepared earlier for my lunch.
The 28T is large enough to handle all sea conditions, but small enough to trailer and maintain with ease; making it the perfect size boat for all of your needs. The superior ride of the Contender 28 T is due to increased running surface of the integrated transom. Setting up the table was simple; remove it from its storage space, place one end in a bracket on the aft cabin wall and rest the forward end on the edge of the galley. This means it is more structurally sound because it's part of the hull and not a separate bolt-on bracket.
The table was 22-inches wide and, with it in place, it made going from the cockpit to the v-berth impossible. The table attached to the box with half hinges and supported at the other end by a removable aluminum tube leg.
Standard features include a self-bailing cockpit, one piece flush deck, raised live well, a large center console for extensive electronics and up to a 240 gallon optional fuel capacity for those long offshore runs. You had to sit down in the port quarter berth, set the table in place and then sit on the starboard quarter berth.
Nestles is recomended only for advanced surfers.Click the photo below to view Nestles video.
As I started to pack my lunch box something caught my eye outside on the deck through the patio doors.
The Contender 28 T is a true, hardworking tournament winner with a long, proud and proven legacy. Doing much else but sitting was just about impossible and we soon stopped using the table in its normal place.The installation of a Tiller-Tamer was the catalyst for developing a new use for the old table. I walked over and looked out into the dark and immediately was blinded by an immensely bright light with rays and spikes resembling fire. The Tiller-Tamer allows me to lock down the tiller so it doesn’t move, an important prerequisite for a useful cockpit table. The forward end of the table would rest on the end of the tiller while the aft end of the table was supported on the aft edge of the cockpit. The existing table was 22-inches by 2-inches and was made from a piece of ?-inch thick plywood with laminate on the top side and edges.If you don’t have an existing table to work with, building one from scratch isn’t that difficult. I hung on with every last ounce of breath that I had-- for I had known from the start that this was pure evil. It is designed for outdoor signs so it has void free interior laminations coupled with a phenolic coating that is ready for epoxy, glue or paint. On the down side, it will be a little heavier than plywood and certainly more expensive.If you choose the plywood option, you have several choices for finish.
First of all, it should be given several coats of epoxy, especially on the exposed end grain of the edges. Water working its way in here will result in the plywood eventually deteriorating so seal it well. P-Land is recomended for intermediate to advanced surfers.Click the photo below to view P-Lands album. Slowly but it was leaving the house and vanishing into the night like a balloon drifting into the atmosphere and then disappearing. Once that is done, you can paint it or cover it with wood veneer or a laminate such as Formica. I staggered back completely exhausted knowing that a battle just had been fought for my soul.

Just paint it with a good grade of marine paint.I suggest you then cut some trial rear legs and front supports out of cardboard to get the geometry right. There have been many write-ups in sport fishing magazines about the marlin, sailfish, Wahoo and tuna that have been caught in this area.We operate primarily as a surf camp.
You want the legs long enough to support the table in a level position, and the entire table high enough to easily slide your legs under. Fishing off the boats is offered at no charge as the boat captains drive around the surf breaks keeping an eye on the surfers. I didn’t calculate the height of the support correctly and had to add the cleat to level the table.With the proper geometry determined, the rear support leg can be cut out.
I cut the upper edge of the support leg at a slight angle so the leg would angle back and lock in place.
There is no charge for this type of fishing.We also offer an outer island trip, which requires a payment of $320 for the extra gas used by the panga boat.
I fastened the leg to the underside of the table with a short piece of stainless steel piano hinge. I also put a rubber furniture bumper on the bottom of each leg to keep from scratching the gel coat on the transom.I cut the front support out of a scrap piece of 2 x 4 lumber. I believe the battle was real and that I really experienced it but maybe in a different dimension or realm. I had defeated the devil with the name of Jesus.===================================================================Sometime in our life we all will have to battle demons that try to control us. A short piece of 1 x 2 hardwood acts as a cleat to tighten the table support onto the tiller. We should be able to get out to the Coiba Island and Hannibal Bank area where large marlin and tunas can be caught. Whether it is a fight for our soul or some other evil in our life, it will be a fight that you need to win. If you double-nut the machine thread (tighten one nut against the other) you can easily screw the hanger bolt in place without messing up the threads.A couple of wing nuts and washers tighten the cleat on the tiller. It has been described as the perfect wave you draw on your notebook in high school that just keeps going and going.
A short bungee cord keeps the leg folded flat while the table is stowed.So, after a great day on the water, with enough wind for some spirited sailing but not enough to overwhelm your guest, you ghost into a secluded anchorage with the last of the dying breeze, You drop the anchor off the stern as you drift up to the wooded shore. In the book The boy who came back from heaven, Alex Malarkey says that Heaven is guarded by large angels. Pulling on the stern anchor line, you move the boat back out into the quiet cove away from the shoreline insects.You tie off the tiller so it doesn’t move and pull out your cockpit table. There is room for the stove, the fixing’s and a level place for both of you to enjoy your meal.
In the book of Daniel a messenger from God tells Daniel in Chapter 10:12-14 --"Daniel, do not be afraid. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico).I called the Delta customer service rep to ask if that was a typo (mistake) and she said no. Then Michael, one of the most important angels, came to help me, because I had been left there with the king of Persia. Battles are surely being fought every minute of every day in the supernatural and spiritual world. She answered Yes, that is correct.Heres a petition going around: Fight Airline Surfboard Charges Sick of paying airline surcharges for your board?
Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today for it is written that the devil will lose in the end. The reason for the new price is because of the increase in fuel costs and other commodities that have steadily increased over the past two years.
Improvements have been in the area of another honeymoon suit, new wood decking, new tiled floors, new boat, new motors, new rental surfboards, improved port facilities. However, if you would like to lock in the old rate from 2008, then you will need to make a reservation and pay the deposit by December 31st, 2008.

These offshore breaks are heavy-duty, deep water reefs with some areas of dry-reef that need to be carefully negotiated. 29 All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves.

He escapes the cold of Washington State to visit us in the warm waters of Panama during February and March. It has taken a little time to get from physically being at home to mentally being back as well. My heart is always surfing around the world even if responsibility is trying to get in the way.

I will get some things done on the farm and then it will be back to the beach in Oregon.The attached picture was taken at Leftovers on the island of Outer Silva about 10 kilometers from Morro Negrito Surf Camp.
There are 4 breaks on the island and various snorkeling opportunities for the non-surfers or people who need a break. I mention this as on the 3rd day I was there, the waves were breaking in the 10 plus range with at least a 6 throw to the lip. It pitched me over the falls backwards and held me down for a long time in a lot of bubbles.
I did not hit anything, although when I saw the magnificent Shuler epoxy surfboard that Lanny made for me to surf in Panama, was in 2 pieces. This meant that I was going to have some short-board experience for the remainder of the stay.
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 New Century Version (NCV)17 If anyone belongs to Christ, there is a new creation. Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, and God gave us the work of telling everyone about the peace we can have with him.19 God was in Christ, making peace between the world and himself.
I gave it a try and had my board leash come off my ankle and had to swim into the rocky shore. This picture was taken 2 weeks ago, was voted the wave of the day and is a true Monday Morning Wave.The guests, cooks and staff made this a time to remember, always.
I wish this experience to all of you and thank everyone who made this happen.Have a great day,BobP. So I wrote the following that is below: A ==========================================================================================================================A Season Finale--- This may be my last Pastor Pop-Pop Sermon. As a side note, I was able to come back 1st class on both flights from Panama City, Panama to Seattle, Washington, USA. I may leave the web site up and running for a year in case it picks up but there probably will not be new words of wisdom in a message.
As good as the airline was the cooks at camp did it better job and their meals tasted superior.
I feel that in body, mind, and soul that I am under attack from the evil one and it is totally exhausting me spiritually and physically.
At one time there was a period that I was getting over 200 hits per month but now it is down to just a few. Panamanians have a strong sense of pride for their provinces, and the Foundation thought this would be an opportunity for the children to see some important parts of Chiriqui.
Led by camp manager, Jeff Healion, ten children and nine parents enjoyed a two day excursion of learning, fun, and exploration set to the theme of Getting to Know my Province.A Traveling by boat and bus, the trip included visits to the mountain town of Boquete and the provincial capital, David. The first stop was Paradise Gardens, an animal sanctuary and refuge in the cool highlands of Boquete, a thriving hub of coffee production and nationally famous for its coffee and flower fair.
Here, we enjoyed interactive tours of monkeys, exotic birds, endangered mammals, and an enclosed butterfly park. One child only comes here when coached and the other I have not seen or heard from in months. Most all the animals at Paradise Gardens have been rescued and are awaiting release back into the jungle.A After a picnic lunch in Boquetes main plaza, it was down to the warmer climes of David, Panamas thriving western hub of agriculture, business, and tourism.
The group visited Culturama, a historical and cultural society located in one of the oldest buildings in Chiriqui.
We learned about local history and were treated to entertaining stories by one of the areas best storytellers.A What is a field trip without a little down time, so we headed over to the theater and caught the new Disney holiday movie Enchanted followed by a stop at MacDonalds. After dinner we went to see Davids new million-dollar plaza, probably the nicest plaza in Panama, if not Central America. Here are some of my prouder moments: Hundreds have visited my Altar Call tab (souls have been saved), I taught a Spanish gentleman who had never prayed before to pray, several people said that I would make a good Pastor, one young man who did not go to Church told me that if I started one he would come to it, at one time I was rated #1 by several internet web service search engines, and through Jesus I helped cure someone of an affliction. Just by luck, a local philanthropic organization was presenting a Christmas performance of dance, music, and holiday dramas in the parks amphitheater.
It was a lovely tropical evening and we enjoyed the festivities besides being tired from a day of busy events. Finally, we made it to a comfortable nights sleep at Hotel Toledo.A Day two began with a fun breakfast at a popular downtown cafeteria where we were treated to a private reception room. You can still follow me on Twitter if you choose and I may come back to this site occasionally to add a Bible verse or two. From the restaurant we walked to the Sevillana Bakery where we enjoyed a full tour of the bakerys back kitchens. In Panama, as in much of Latin America, the bakery still plays a major role in peoples daily lives. Consider this a season finale in which you dont know if the show will be cancelled or back next season.
At Sevillan, fresh bread slides out of the ovens nearly all day.A A short walk from the bakery we stopped at citys main fire station. Here we had a full tour of the facilities and then were treated to a simulated emergency call.
We watched the firemen slide down the poles, put their suits on, and then leave the firehouse. After some fun pictures with the firehouse staff, we were on our way to our final destination.A Davids International Airport is the second largest in Panama and Aeroperlas, the regional carrier, had invited us to board one of their planes as it was being prepared for a flight. He stated that he did not want the Lord to come back yet even though all the people he knew could not wait for Jesus to come back. Probably not something we could have done in many countries, we all boarded the plane, visited the cockpit, and then relaxed in the cabin seats while the flight attendants answered questions from the children. Wow, what a thrill for the children.A With just a few hours left before we needed to begin our journey back to camp, we spent a few hours looking around the busy commercial district of David, bustling with holiday activity. In Latin America, so much of the activity begins out in front of the stores so just walking around the streets is fascinating.A It is hard to imagine how our trip could have been more fun, rewarding, or educational.
Pastor said that when people tell him that they want Christ to come back that he says, No, not yet, there is at least one more soul to save! Sure we arrived back at the island tired, but the children were still buzzing with excitement from the events and what they had experienced.
If you could have seen the smiles and eyes during the two days, you would all know how rewarding it is to share with those that are less fortunate. I pondered and prayed on that for a minute or two and decided not to cancel my web site and mission. During the holiday time, it was especially rewarding for us to share a magical treat with the children from our island. The old price has been $600 per week and the new price will be $650.The reason for the new price is because of the increase in fuel costs and other commodities that have steadily increased over the past two years. Improvements have been in the area of another honeymoon suit, new wood decking, new tiled floors, new boat, new motors, new rental surfboards, improved port facilities.However, if you would like to lock in the old rate from 2007, then you will need to make a reservation and pay the deposit by December 31st, 2007. The 25 ft deep V hull boat can smoothly cut through big swells and is equipped with new twin 115 hp 4 stroke motors, live bait well, GPS fish finder and an onboard stereo system. Since posting the latest message my hits again went well over 200 and I was again rated by one search engine as #1 and another at #2. The Gulf of Chiriqui is located south of David and covers an area of 14,740 hectares plus a great number of Islands and Islets. Among them you can find Isla Coiba, Isla Cebaco, Isla Montuosa, Boca Brava, Jicaron and Isla Secas with some of the best big game sport fishing, surfing and sport-diving in Central America. Hannibal Bank and Coiba Island are both well known sport-diving and salt water sport fishing destinations Panama Central America. This creates currents that are convenient when going on an offshore fishing salt water fishing trip.
After publishing the latest message I had two Spanish people seek the Lord more and now a friend has asked to go to Church with me. I will take out the stubborn hearts of stone from your bodies, and I will give you obedient hearts of flesh.A What is my point?
And most importantly, do not give up trying to save souls in your family, work place, community, or the world.
The Coiba Island is now a patrolled national park and protected from commercial fishing within its boundaries. The island was first ruled by Coiba Indians and later ruled by Vasco Nues de Balboa who at some point was defeated by pirates. Besides from sport fishing, here you will find great opportunities for adventure travel or eco tourism.
You will find a great variety of monkeys, iguanas, crocodile, snakes and over 133 different species of birds for those birdwatchers. Encourage them with great patience and careful teaching,A Matthew 16:26 --- It is worthless to have the whole world if they lose their souls.
Cebaco Island is located between Santa Catalina and Mariato West Coast of the Peninsula de Azuero.
This island is home to some of the most beautiful beaches with crystal clear water and scenery for sport-diving, snorkeling or guided fishing trips.


The Cebaco Bay is located south of the island and it is excellent for big game fishing or angling, sport diving and surfing.
Its reefs are home of Cubera Snapper, Roosterfish, Dorado, Monster Yellowfin Tuna (100 + pounds) and a variety of billfish such as sail fish Montousa Island is 10 miles off Hannibal Bank and it is also a great sport-diving spot in clear waters of Panamas Pacific Ocean.
The bottom floor also rises dramatically from approximate depths of 10,000 ft making it great for deep sea fishing in Panama. You see, we did not have video games then unless you count Pong and the snow made the four channels we did get on TV full of static. As we rounded a portion of the mountain the ledge that I was walking on gave way and I fell about 20 feet down a cliff.
The snow below cushioned my fall but where I landed - there was about a 60 degree slope covered with snow and ice.
Below me was a very large straight down drop that would have been disastrous for me if I went over it. Moreover, this island is a boutique resort we operate with which was designed for those who want private, pristine surroundings with excellent service.
I dug in my heals and my hands but could not stop or slow down so I started to steer myself toward a small tree. Knowing that I would not be able to hang on to it with my hands, I decided to let it hit me in the body.
Stopping within 3 feet of going over the edge I hurt all over with the breath knocked out of me. I could have stayed there and yelled for help or rested awhile but knowing that my friend was up there alone and I had to get out of this situation, I just started to slowly and safely climb back up. A You may make a climb to the top of the ladder at work and end up falling due to a lay-off or closure. A You may get married and start a family and it end up in divorce or maybe a spouse will die. With a theme of Hacia el Futuro, or Towards the Future, the trip was for many of the participants their first travel outside the province and their first visit to the capital of Panama City. Your exhausted, depressed, tired and disgusted and feel just like giving up or taking a rest on life for a time. Over a period of two days, the group of students and parents, led by Morro Negrito Surfguide Jeff Healion, traveled to the Miraflores Locks of the Panama Canal, the ruins of the first settlement of Panama, the Presidential Palace which included a surprise meeting with President Martin Torrijos, and the new continent-spanning Centenario Bridge.
Along the way, the group enjoyed some out-of-the-ordinary treats of pizza, ice cream, and holiday shopping at the new Albrook Mall at the site of the former US Albrook Air Base.The design of the trip was to bring the students in contact with the past, the present, and the future of their country through the ruins, the Canal, and the government buildings.
Dont allow yourself to be buried in that pit you have fallen in and (one step at a time) climb out of that valley and charge up that hill. It may take time, maybe years, but if you stay put and do not move forward (even a little at first) you will be like that bear caught in a trap in the middle of the dark woods.
At the Canal, the group was treated to a private presentation of the Panama Canal movie and then witnessed two giant Panamax ships passing through the locks.
Nothing could have been more surprising though than when Panamas President pulled up just as the group was visiting his palace.
As he left for his office, he commanded his staff to give the group a special tour inside the palace.Healion reported the smiles, excitement and gratitude we saw during the trip were heartwarming reasons why we know the Foundation can do good work.
A And sometimes a person starts to climb out of their mess and then starts to back-slide so doubt sets in. Peter, one of Christs disciples trusted the Lord and actually walked on water but when the storm kept up - his faith started to slip. If a student wishes to continue, the family must send the child to the high school on the mainland. For most families, the cost of transportation, food, housing, and school supplies is a great burden and many are unable to send their children, especially those with several children.The educational assistance program will provide families with the funds necessary for supporting their children in higher education. In 2007, another two will be eligible to continue at high school if their families so decide.
With the new program we hope that money will no longer be a factor whether families send their children.The surf camp enjoys close contact with all the families that will be involved in the program and will be able to monitor the progress of the students. We have seen many of these children grow up and it is especially rewarding to know they will have new choices and opportunities for their futures. We know their ties to the island will always be strong but we also hope that by continuing their education their new paths will show them what a truly special place their home is.
The Lord will not give you something that He knows is disastrous for you even if you think it might be good. September 2006, a one thousand watt wind turbine was installed that has been doing an excellent job of supplementing the solar system with wind generated power. Previously, the solar batteries would automatically disconnect themselves due to low voltage at about midnight. Hopefully, we can help inspire the camp visitors that come to surf camp to perhaps consider installing their own clean energy systems, wherever they may come from.
There are a number of artesian springs pumping a large amount of water out of the ground, so much that it has created several water falls on the island, explains Steve. She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders: Bring down United Airlines Flight 93. Penney, one of two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop the plane before it reached the nations capitol. The problem was that her and her wing man had to scramble so fast that there was no time to load ammunition or missiles. This was the end of her life and she knew it but this would be the ultimate sacrifice for her country and would save Washington from the airliners destruction. Fortunately for her (not the passengers) the airline crashed in a field inPennsylvania before the F-16s arrived at the scene. The priest will perform the acts to remove that person's sin so he will belong to the Lord.
7 " 'But if the person cannot afford a lamb, he must bring two doves or two young pigeons to the Lord as the penalty for his sin. One bird must be for a sin offering, and the other must be for a whole burnt offering.8 He must bring them to the priest, who will first offer the one for the sin offering. In this way the priest will remove the person's sin so he will belong to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him.However, God decided that this practice was going to end and through His love he was going to offer His own blood sacrifice for all of our sins.
He asked His son to give His life as a perfect blood sacrifice and an offering for all that we have done badly. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us on that cross that day even though we did not deserve it.
As Heather Lucky Penny was willing to do for her country, Jesus was willing to do the same for His Father and all of His followers.
All those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior shall now have the forgiveness of their sins through His blood. That new person is made to be like Godmade to be truly good and holy.=============================================Check out the new song by Tricia Brock --"Always", on my Song tab. We as humans can live to be 100 years old if we are not struck with cancer, a major disease or hit by a car. This latter group is the one that I will address.Lets look at the validity of the Bible for a minute.
Some people will argue that you can't believe the Bible because it was written by followers who believed in God or Jesus. If you were to use this argument regarding autobiographies, biographies, and history books, you would have to remove all these books off the library selves. Others would argue that the Bible can't be trusted because we do not know if the original manuscripts are accurate.
To determine the accuracy of the manuscripts, we can compare the Bible manuscripts to manuscripts of other literature. If we are going to be fair, we should not require more of the Bible than we do other literature, but the Bible will hold up to even more scrutiny. Notice that the time frame for the New Testament of the Bible is much much smaller and there are many more copies. Over and over again, archaeological digs are finding artifacts that prove the various stories that are in the Bible. There were over 40 authors so there is no way they could have conspired with each other.So, if we are to consider the Bible as factual then lets look at what it says about getting to Heaven where the Father resides. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same:As you see, according to the Bible, there is only one God and the only way to Him is through faith in Jesus and accepting Him as your Lord and Savior.
There are many more passages to quote but I encourage you to get a Bible in an easy to read translation and read it yourself. The other religions, besides Christianity, in the world follow a person, thing, idol, the earth, nature, or a prophet.
The Jewish and Muslim people believe in the same Father (the Muslims follow a prophet though) but Jesus declared himself part of God and proved it through numerous miracles. We Christians believe in a Trinity the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit, as proved through the Bible. Nothing you do here on Earth can save you only the belief of this God and acceptance of His son Jesus.
He was mad at the idea that his wife became a Christian and went on a journey to prove that Jesus was a work of fiction. The book contains, in an easy to read format, all the evidence that he found and the interviews with experts.
