After Cayo Giliermo marina Hemingway in Havana 13#S

should be my port for some time. I have got here in company of Roland and Caterin on Shierly.



She was dragging me into marina because Tereza did quit again because of diesel filters 5 min before marina. And it was  after 10 hours of hard motoring. I can not believe how it is possible such a bad luck. But i have to. It was happening to me. Or maybe is this all  happening in some other universe and i am not me any more.

Can some one tell me way i must go through this?

And it is not why i am so disappointed because of Terezas-my problem i did change filters in 5 min then once in marina. It is because Tereza did damage Shirley when she did approach to me. It was  i could only look how my anchor did demolish the Shirleys sprayhod (see on picture- there is  part of sprayhood back of Caterin that is taken down) and is now layin next to mast on deck. Roland  was telling that i have to pay only for material and he well fix all by himself. Iit could be much worse. Terezas  anchor did not grab the Shirley hard rigging and drag down the must. This  universe is so fantastic. Unbelievable.


And magic it is. This is all so intense. And i am confused and it is hard to sail without slipping for two nights. I did some sliping from time to time, and on the end it was all lunatic. My head was heavy and i could see normally any more in dark under deck. My body and brain is not strong enough to manage all this.


Yes. Because i still have money. But without money any universe will collapse.Ok. Lets focus back again. Tereza is selling good. I was  faster than Shirley. To go parallel at same speed i had to short my jib.


Leaking is the same. The secondary pump did  broke. But i did already fix it. It was some part of gum stuck under membrane. The ruder is also working fine. It is that i can turn only for 30 degrees now (initials is 40). I have vibrations from propeller. I can guess that damaged propeller was so unbalanced that did damage the Cutless bearning )search again). But i must go in the water to check. I almost forget my pump for salt water is not working any more. I was cleaning my deck and i had forgot to turn it out after finish. And i could not hear her working because engine was louder. I have to check. Oh, yes i can remember now i could notice some strange smell. But i did simply ignore it. The thought »do not care about it« is probably some fuse i n »this«

Universe or my fight to survive and it can be also beginning of brake down.

I even start to catch fish. And it was the best fishy i ever eat. Remember the  post »Fishy«use search, just insert fishe. Now fish did caught first fish, but it was meant to remamber me always what i want. Fishie has reach its universal purpose.  This does suggest me that  i will also bring Terza to Avstralia.


And from beginning it was not my intention to insert picture as next. But i am enough original to add also some routine.


So today we are going in to have party in Havana old town. I am not drinking any more from first day coming in America. It is that i realize that i have problem with alcohol. No, i have problem with me. It is that alcohol releases my wild destroying potential.This is not the appropriate sentence to end this blog. Yes I have a simple resolution about. I do wish you happy new year and do take care about each other.


Second try 12#S

This time direction west (as first to Vareadero, Havana,…). I am going to Mexico.

Better wind and waves direction, so less load on Tereza.

My email 17#M

is but i still prefer to have alive blog page with your comments.


The previous owner had many spare parts and for my luck there was also a propeller. But i was to tired at the end when i did took the old one to put new on. In the water it is much harder everything.


I have got also the steering joint today but it need more work to make it okay.  So i have to wait more.


I had to turn back 11#S

because when I leaned Teraza on the left side to catch the east wind so i might go down to Cuban coast the water was starting coming in not acceptable amount. I would go on anyway because i have installed extra pump but also steering cylinder did got air in at attachment point. And soon it was on limit to jump out from joint. I had no choice… at 1 AM and after 30 km i turned back. Again..  And on way back while motoring i notice that there was something wrong with propulsion. And in marine i went under the Tereza in  the water and i saw that propeller is twisted.

I  looks terrible everything probably. But i believe that there is still hope. Somehow i feel that i will get out.

Or it is that i am loosing my mind.


My grandma.




I am ready to continue 10#S

I have add an deepmeter to GPS with alarm. It is improvisation but it should hold to next port.


Now with old one i have two. Just in case.




Hope to be hear again soon.

And hope to get from off shore next time in day time.

Tereza was my grandmother 16#M

When I had to give name to my boat,  I had not to think much about it. Tereza was my grandmother. I want all people to know, that I am sorry, that I did not take care of her, before she died as I  promised. She was taking care of me when I was a child.

We were arguing almost each day after I went home  from work. And at an moment she decided to go to my uncle, as she had also used to do it  from always. But then when she want to return buck, I sad no.

She was asking for me, but i did hide.

I did not said by  to her. When I did it was to late, she could not recognize me.

I want to take Tereza as far possible, so much people can know about my sorrow and learn from it.


A this moment the wind is blowing 15#M

A this moment the wind is blowing from 115 degree and it is exactly parallel to next 100 miles of route that I want to do or saying differently I will prey that it changes a least for 45  so I can go without having to do tack  And also exactly in this moment one mosquito is  flaying around my head. I am hungry again. Something went wrong in my last sailing passage also in my biological nutrition system. I am almost always hungry. I am eating in marina 3 times a day for free with marina employers. I am cooking in my boat and sometimes I even go to eat in hotel. It is all inclusive so once you are in you can go to snack bar and ask for hamburger. Today I have got an offer for 25 cigars for 25 dollars. The first prize was 30 but after I sad I do not smoke it went 25. The guy was telling me weary politely with big cooking spoon between rotating the hamburger that I could give it to my friends. I was not in mood to explain that probably I will not see any of my friends for long time. It might be because I did almost lose my boat and that are still probabilities that it will happen anyway . So I told him  that i do not have money.  Guy went disappointed and seriously looking in my eyes slowly saying each word   “You do not have money”. I have made a silly face and answered “sorry”. It was good that I did exchange  one American dollar to one Cuban dollar to him  and that I have add also one for tip before. And that hamburgers were cooked at that time so i picked my plate asked if I could take also some tomato salad as I did ask for rum and banana sweets minutes ago. But this time I got negative answer. So I did sigh with hand that is not important. And just turned around and went to set and did eat my hamburger with and looking at one long legs lady sitting near to pool. I am without glasses so I had pretty of work to establish if she was also looking at me. The food was magic, so I soon forgot about lady and I focused on what could be so tasty in that peace of food me  holding in my arms.

I was saying last time that people does not know what means 2 meters of waves and 20 knots of wind. I was thinking that I have to explain that 2 meters of waves are 4 meters from top to bottom.

And for the record. I am working on my cylinder but no progress. I am just doing bad tries but maybe it will turn okay and I will get to next port to solve the solution. I am now in tourist hotel are with weary les possibilities for boat reparation

Problem 14#M

with steering cylinder.

I have 3 of them now but with no one i am confident to go on open sea.

Maybe i will decide  to buy one old 6 years, but was newer used for 500$.   And it is also not the right dimension. It is to long. I do not know what to do.


I will wait … For … i do not know… i am just tired. People here gives me solutions like we are talking about … i do not know what to say. They do not know what is open sea 3m of waves and 20 knots of wind.

Each day cost me 24$ to stay here, but i do not know.

Cuba 13#M

I will go tomorrow direction Santioago de cuba. It is 400 miles. I did instal repaired cylinder but it leeks oil. I have another one to install. I was motoring in big waves for 2 hors and it looks that water coming in bout is not increasing. So… lets go.  I have got other one. It is smaller but is should be ok. I have attached picture of my fishing friends. And i am saying hallo to Suri and Alex.
