Chronicles of S/V INDIGO
settee supports

Settee supports, port. After 30 years, it is time to consider the wood that supports the settees aboard INDIGO. We knew something was wrong when we kept falling through when we sat on the settees! Our support bases are plywood covered with a white (chipped!) plastic-y material. There are openings with thumb-holed covers. Over the years, moisture has caused them to de-laminate at a few of the edges and the supports for the opening covers are shot. We are unsure whether to fabricate all new or repair the old.

Leaving New Harbor at BI for the last time in 2011. There were very few boats and NO mooring balls (except for a few private moorings). No worries, we anchored and were pretty much all alone. Anchor up at 1115. It was not much of a ride home, 6 knots off the bow, so we motored home. Chilly 60F. We arrived in Noank, cleaned INDIGO, and headed home as the sun came out.

Sunday was day 31 on the boat for 2011. Our goal is to get to 30 days a year and we made it! All in all, a great fall sail to end a great season.

INDIGO out!

Meg...snug as a bug... We spent a chilly night on the anchor at BI. We piled up the blankies to fend off the 50F cold. In the morning, Meg worked on her PREP stuff for work and enjoyed coffee and breakfast in bed, all toasty!
