Diary of a Sailing Trip – Part One

I finally feel like we are on holidays!  My back has stopped aching after loading ‘food & beverages for two for 11 days’; Captain Wayne has re-familiarized himself with the boat and ‘first mate, bottle washer, cook, gal friday, electrical systems back up analyst’, aka moi has spent time melting into the sun warmed deck cushions.

The first two days on the boat were spent getting the systems back in order after a major “grounding” while the boat was out on a charter.  Yesterday, I learned more than I thought possible about the electrical system, inverters, isolators and the ‘heart interface’ system.  We now have 6 new ‘golf cart’  house batteries, AC outlets that work and are ready for long relaxing days at anchor, once we make it to Desolation Sound.

I think back to our last trip to Desolation and really hope we don’t encounter 40 knot winds, 20 foot swells and  ‘dirty diesel’ resulting in a clogged and sputtering engine.

Ah, the joys of sailing.

Off on one of our last walks on land.

peace, namaste & hippy love for generations,
