Getting started

07 December 2008 | Stuart, Florida
Beautiful and hot!
We're getting settled and have started cleaning and reassembing the boat. What appeared clean was in fact filthy once water was applied.

It seems that southern Florida has a fine, black ash in the air as a result of burning sugar cane.

Louise was thankful for the pressure-washer on board.

All the decks are now clean, and the exterior canvas (bimini and dodger) are installed.

We drove up to Melbourne, Florida this morning to purchase a sea drogue, and also found an unused Para-tech 18' sea anchor for $50.

Having just bought one on ebay for $800, I couldn't resist. You can never have enough safety equipment on board.

We also met many of the members of the SSCA and have decided to join this merry band of world cruisers.

Our son arrives in Fort Lauderdale in three days, and if things work out correctly, we hope to have everything ready to go within 7-10 days.
