|...anchored out, our first night...|
|I made a quick LED anchor light as ours was burned out|
|Lifting the dinghy off the deck with the jib halyard|
|A new bubbly to try. We like Gruet from New Mesico or Moet & Chandon from France.|
This is reported to be similar.
|We will see if this new bubbly is any good|
|This is an AB 10VL dinghy. It is 120 lbs 10 feet long.|
It fits on the foredeck of an IP35 fully inflated.
|We added padding with life jackets on top of the forward hatch.|
The dinghy seat rests on this spot, so it is perfect.
|Radeen assisted as we lowered BUNS II into the water.|
|There we go, the foredeck is clear. Now we can see forward and we can work on the mast.|
|Buns II in the davits with new "trucker straps"|
Radeen designed new bed quilt comforters for the v-berth bunk and the aft quarter berth bunk and I did the sewing on our Sailrite sewing machine. They are much lighter in weight, since we are going to warmer climates. Now, she is in search of new rugs.
