Last Sunday, I spent the rainy day designing a part for the boat. On a friend’s recommendation, I used Autodesk Fusion. I was surprised that that there’s a version of Fusion available free for personal use. I was also surprised that it was relatively easy to get started–even for someone whose last 3D design experience was decades ago and involved pencils and drafting tools. I sent part of the part out for printing to check a couple things before getting the large parts printed. I’ll post more details after those parts arrive. I suspect there might be some design tweaks needed.

The posts here have been skewing toward sourdough bakery lately, a lot. The last loaf I made might have been one of the best though. I’ll try to broaden the scope of my posts a bit in the future…

In other news, we checked out a few of the groups performing at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music’s Open Stages. This is a really special neighborhood event worth marking the calendar for (next year).

Another week has passed and I have little to share other than this excellent May the 4th meme of unknown provenience. Credit to the owner. Or, is it credit to the creator? Either way, I take no credit–just sharing.

Sailing season is right around the corner–in this part of the world anyway. Uno went into the water this week, unexpectedly early thanks to some of the guys at the club. That’s one less thing on my pre-season todo list. The next step is cleaning and rigging. I hope to get a shakeout sail in over the next couple weeks.

I did some more tweaking/experimenting with my Low Effort Sourdough Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread. The results were good. Plus, I got some good advice on Mastodon about pushing the whole wheat content even higher and adding some oat flour. I’ll try that out next weekend.

This was a vacation week, for the most part. I did get back to the grind on Friday as I slogged through my inbox. Not much else to say other than it’s good to be home and nice to be greeted with leaves on the trees that were still looking quite wintry when I left.
