Distracted starts

It is supposed to be a day of financial reckoning, or, more specifically, getting the family accounting closer to current. Instead I am being severely distracted by responses to my trailer inquiries, cruiser notes on a passage in the north Pacific, a software sprint toward 2.0 (mostly as spectator/alpha tests), and a most amusing ‘feature’ of OpenCPN[O] (which I am unofficially learning to use) – it is ringing the watch bells.

If I do get a sailboat, a mechanical or electric clock[R] which optionally rings watch bells is on my list of fantasy purchases.
