Life on a sailboat…wake up, make coffee, work on the engine, do laundry, run into town… Here’s a quick rundown of a day in Marsh Harbor.
In previous posts I shared some problems with my fuel system and my temporary fix. Now it’s completely shot and I’m contemplating if I even need an engine.
Still haven’t moved more than ten miles from where I was almost two weeks ago. I knew that my schedule would be dictated by the tides and the weather.
After one year of preparation, we’re off. The water, fuel, and propane tanks are topped off and I have enough food to last months.
It appeared to be just a myth when I bought my boat. I was warned that I shouldn’t fall into the trap of just tinkering on the boat the rest of my life.
We’ve been through this before…I get focused on boat projects and no one hears from me for weeks. This is what I’ve done since my last update.
Well, I think next month is it…when I’ll be back in the water and headed south. Like really far south. For those who have been wondering where I’ve been, here’s an update.
Day one as in, my first day as a civilian. This was my last week as an active duty Air Force officer. Now on to the boatyard working on my sailboat!
Well it’s been one week since Saoirse came out of the water for some final projects before taking me around South America. Living in a boatyard is definitely…different.
I think it’s safe to say that hardly any boat owners look forward to taking their boat out of the water. Especially liveaboards, who make their home aboard. I’ll be “on the hard” for potentially a couple of months while I do some work on my vessel, getting her ready for my long cruise.
