Change in Command

11 November 2010 | Santa Rosalia
Captain Lori
Well, Rich left the boat again today, which means there is a change of command in the works. When he is gone I try to run a tight ship as I am brain dead if I do not. I have all of my responsibilities as well as his to remember to do. At least this time I do not plan on taking the boat out of the harbor, though I do miss San Marcos.......

First order of the day is to run the Honda generator. The solar panels help but we still need more juice. Rich will be bringing back a wind generator with him on his return trip. This will be helpful. In the Sea of Cortez the rule of thumb is that we either get too much wind or not enough. There is not a happy medium for sailing too often (but when there is it is absolutely divine). The Honda uses much less fuel than the the big genset so that is my first choice. The problem is that I do not remember how to make hot water for showers with the Honda.... Since we are sleeping with blankets and wearing jackets in the mornings and evenings this could make for really quick showers.

The next thing on the Captain's list is to get water for the batteries. They seem to be using more water and are now low. Rich did not have time to get it before he left so I will be trying to find a place somewhere in town that carries it.

Before we go get water for the batteries, the dingy needs to be pumped up and cleaned out. The dingy pontoons was so soft when I took Rich to the dock at dawn this morning it was truly pathetic. An over cooked noodle would have been firmer.

My brain is already mashing things about as I try to figure out how and where to get things done and we haven't even put homeshooling, laundry, and boat cleaning in the mix. It will all be done by the end of the day, maybe.... The kids really helped when Rich was gone last time and they will be great now (or they will walk the plank--but then I would have to go buy a plank first...). Amy is cooking breakfast as I write this. Life is busy but it is also good. We are at anchor and that is the best place to be.
