Ready to Go

04 July 2009 | Catawba Island
Well final preparations have been completed for our trip to the North Channel. The boat is loaded to the water line with provisions, water, fuel, and a good portion of Kat's wardrobe. Our mechanic was out on Thursday and pronounced the mechanical and electrical systems good to go and also made sure that we had plenty of spare parts - since getting access to parts or even a FedEx drop off are rare. This year's journey will take a different format, with a planned 'guys' trip to Presque Isle where Kat will meet us, the guys will then return back to CIC by car. That will be our launching point to Meldrum Bay in the North Channel. The plan is to then meet up with our friends on Adagio (another 423) and potentially two other boats.

Stay tuned as the guys try to make the trip in about 50 hours - going round the clock.
