I feel like I should sell something...

Anyone want to buy a watch?

Need to do spring garage clean up. There are lots of collectible old boats parts I need to list. Things to follow when I find time. Would make the wife happy, first iIF I clean and more so if i get rid of some stuff.

This post isn't directly related to Albins, but I am an Albin owner and a supporting member of this forum. I'm not sure if this post meets the requirements of this forum so I'll understand if the moderator removes it.

Being on lockdown for the last year has had its share of unexpected challenges but it has also had a few unintended benefits, such as doing a bunch of little home improvement projects, watching all those movies that otherwise busy people never seem to have time for, and reading. It also gave me time to write a novel, which I recently published on Amazon. Voyage To Crusoe is about a guy whose comfortable middle class life is suddenly upended and he loses his wife, his home and his career. He finds himself living on a sailboat in a rundown marina in Los Angeles. It is there that his life takes another unexpected turn.

The book has been well received, with all 5 star ratings on Amazon and Goodreads. You can find it by going to my website: www.LeifBeiley.com

One last note: I did a big chunk of the writing while sitting aboard Compadre, my Albin 28.

Congratulations on completing and publishing your novel. I take my hat off to you because I also have been trying to get a sci-fi tome off the ground, and have realized that I suffer from full-time writers’ block or something very similar. Writing is not as easy as it should be. (Especially as I spent much of my recent working life writing proposals - mostly successful - for gov. contracts.)
I have about five books on the go at the moment but hope get round to reading yours in the near future.

Cool, I picked it up @ Amazon just now.
Will read it sitting on my Albin 28. :shock:

(It seems a lot of experienced boaters get into the Albin 28TE, why is that?
I chose one because of simplicity, single engine, protected prop/rudder, sea worthy, no bling, no non-sense, etc.)
Had sailboats for almost 20 years, worked as a Merchant Mariner and as a Yacht Captain, plenty experience and love my 28TE.

Looking forward to reading the book. 8)

Doug,
Yup, writing is harder than it seems. One thing that helped me a lot was joining a critique group. Until covid struck, we used to meet twice a month. Nowadays we meet via Zoom. Having other writers to criticize and encourage you is very effective in getting going if you're stuck.

I feel the same way about my Albin. After many years of maintaining and repairing my Beneteau 423 in remote tropical places, I knew I wanted a simple, straightforward, easy-to-maintain boat. I also wanted something solid, seaworthy and respectable. The 28 fills the bill just about perfectly.

As for the book, I started crossing oceans long before GPS, so it is set in the 1980's just at the end of the celestial navigation era. I wanted to give readers a brief taste of what it was like to take a noon sight from the deck of a sailboat. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the book.
