The Final Push

Keith, hot and humid
Matt has been working his butt off trying to get the wind turbine, solar array, and wind vane self steering systems operational. The last two days have been particularly hard work. Wiring large guage electrical cable, installing connecting equipment, soldering, shrink wrapping, drilling holes for wires and equipment, applying epoxy to the inside of the holes, installing in line fuses, switches... I could go on and on. The magnitude of this refit was more than we anticipated, to put it mildly. A client commented that her refit was scheduled to take 6 weeks and lasted 18 months. Thank goodness mine won't be that long. Matt may just pull it off before we have to depart this afternoon back to New Bern for Matt's flight to Atlanta and then back to Tucson. There are no words adequate to offer thanks for the sort of hot, sticky, sometimes painful work that Matt has been doing on Tropical Dreamer.

Keith is a 40 something year old Family Law Attorney from Tucson, Arizona who somehow managed to develop a love of sailboat cruising and adventure in spite of growing up in the desert. This blog used to be about how I took breaks from a successful career in law to become a coastal cruising sailor. [...]
Extra: Our sailing life has now come full circle back to San Carlos on the Sea Of Cortez.
