Sunset Sail on Gloucester's Adventure

I am a new member of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and, as a Handywoman, I like to attend the Businesswomen mixers. It's my niche, you could say. Tonight's mixer was a sunset sail on Gloucester's Adventure Schooner. It was magnificent. I grew up sailing on my grandfather's boat out of Manchester Yacht Club. Typically my trips to sea have been on the Yankee Fleet to fish (my mother was a fishmonger in Cambridge). It felt very satisfying to be at sea under wind, to heave heavy sails, and walk with mild ocean-motion and a mild tilt of the keel again.

Porch & Floor Paint

Susan recently closed on a unit in Rockport and needed some help getting it ready. It seems that the seller had ripped up the carpet in this room and then decided to paint the floor planks. We decided it needed a new coat and color. I recommended Porch and Floor Paint in Slate Gray. Susan was really impressed with the results. LABOR: 2 hrs (one/hr per coat) = $60 SUPPLIES: $25 paint + $10 rollers and liners TOTAL: $95

Back in the Saddle Again: Restoring Old Stairs (and my ankle?)

So I've been out for almost two-months with my broken ankle. And I lost a lot of clients. But not this one. Rita was not on a tight time table and could wait and we stayed in touch. She was a great motivator for me, if only to be able to walk to her on my own two feet and shake her hand in person. Well Ritahad quite a "to do list"! She had inherited/bought her father's old summer home in Rockport. It's a beauty but needs a help here and there. Top of her list were the front stairs. She wasn't ready to invest in replacing them . So I recommended a great product: DECK CORRECT from Smith Ace. It is a rubberized paint that fills the old wood splits and adds new life to old stairs and/or decking
