New dodger windshield!
13 November 2016 | La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
It’s 7am and a crisp & cloudy 72 degrees this morning. As I pop my head out of the companionway hatch, I see another ketch pulling in, no sail covers, running lights on. They must have had a fun night.
There’s a small disturbance outside the bay, with winds blowing up to 30 knots from the south, which is the reason we are still bobbing around at the anchorage.
My last post had us taking off last week but those plans were dashed after a last minute dodger replacement. We wanted a windshield and that was just not in my skill set. The installation took more than a day and so we lost our weather window to head south.
It’s been quite pleasant out here on the hook though and today is another Sunday market, which is always fun. I’m sitting here watching dolphins as they circle the boat feeding and I also saw a jelly fish float by so…gonna be on the look out if we plan on jumping in.
I did manage to produce another sewing project. This one was more of a fun project for me. Our forward hatch opens backwards, so when we are at anchor and pointed into the wind, the wind just doesn’t get pushed down, hence the wind funnel, and it works too! Oh happy day.
