A real sailboat again!
01 August 2012 | Catskill, NY
We finished rigging and wireing the boat thiss morning around noon. We got fuel and had to buy and install a new starting battery, so didn't get out of there till around 2 so we decided to spend the night in an anchorage we saw on the way in here. All the solar is back working, so we're fat,dumb, and happy swinging on the hook with the Catskill Mountins as a view out the stern. Learning how to dael with tides and currents has been a learning experience. Locals think nothing of it, but us flatlanders are still learning. Back home water runs only downhill, but that's not the case here. Tomorrow we plan to go to Poughkeepsie to possibly meet a fellow sailor who read about us and e-mailed us. Should be a good time. Well, the Olympics are on, so.....TTFN
