Spares, spares and more spares

12 February 2011 | Shelter Island
Most people who have been cruising in Mexico will tell you not to over provision the boat with food, believe it or not they do actually have grocery stores in Mexico. The things that they may not have are filters for your watermaker, or a fuel filter for a Westerbeke diesel engine, or a ....well you get the idea. Over the past year I have been slowly accumulating spares of many different parts, over the past month I've kicked it into high gear, ordering spare pumps, spare snatch blocks, spare anchors, LOTS of spare filters for the watermaker, generator, outboard and of course the main engine. I have spare shackles, spare hoses, spare water lines, even a spare halyard, spares of this and spares of that. I would like to tell you that this pic is of all my spares...but it's not, there is no way I would be able to fit all the spares in a picture, but it does give you an idea of what I have. I have this funny feeling that even with all the planning I won't have a spare of something when I need it...you know Murphy's law (turns out Murphy was a sailor). Gotta go now and figure out where I'm going to put all these spares.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
