The Big Picture Sail Plan

At the beginning of September we will leave Saint John and head down the Eastern Seaboard. We will hope to be in Annapolis for the boatshow the middle of October. From there we will head down the ICW beginning in Norfolk once the hurricane season has quieted. Upon arrival in West Palm beach we will wait for a weather window to cross to West End and then proceed south as quickly as reasonable to the Exumas. After the end of Feb we will work our way north and visit the Abacos and then return to Florida and the ICW heading North to home for Summer in Canada.

Return from St Andrews – by Ed Coleman

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.    Mark Twain

A couple more projects

Here was some wasted space that now has a good size shelf for dry goods

Storeing cans is always a challenge.   I saw this in the latest issue of good old Boat magazine

Air Scoop

You might call this a red neck air conditioner, but it really helps increase the flow of air through the boat especially in light air conditions.

Pot Jumper

This is my pot Jumper    A tight SS cable between the Keel and the rudder skeg to prevent lines from getting fouled in the prop.

Hanging Galley Shelf

This is a real space saver/creator.   I looked at a bunch of pics on the internet and came up with this.
