s/v Eos

Eos (the Greek goddess of the Dawn) is an owner completed one-off Hollmann FD-12. Her hull and deck were purchased in 1990 and she was launched in 2007. A dream a long time in the making!

We slept in and then had a leisurely start to our lay day. My sister Diana, niece Mitzy and great-nephew Seth came down to the marina mid-morning and got to experience the "get the boat taken care of before you play" approach that we are taking. It was pump the head, fill the water and top off the diesel tanks. Because we need to use the filter for the diesel fills that takes some time. But Seth hung in there and did all of the diesel filling. His hand was cramping toward the end but he was determined to see the job finished.

Then it was off to see some of Sault Sainte Marie while we picked up books, groceries, and other small items. It was time to take advantage of the car that was available to us. Lunch was at the Antler Restaurant aptly named after all of the antlers and stuffed animals that adorn its walls. We went to the top of the Tower of History which has a panoramic view of the Soo, its' locks, and the surrounding city and countryside. After returning to the marina we all settled in for some quiet time on Eos. I did laundry, Bill napped, Seth and his grandmother played cards and Mitzy was busy on her PC.

Seth got unpacked and settled in before we went to a Wendy's for a late evening bite. No one was really hungry for much and Wendy's had just what we wanted - something quick and easy and not too much. Back to the boat and the new crew for Eos settled in. It rained and there were a couple of small thunderstorms over night so once again the weather gods were kind to us. We were all nestled in when they decided to make things interesting.

Up at 7:30 to get ready to motor down the St. Mary's to De Tour Village, MI. Diana and Mitzy came to see us off. We left the dock at 8:15 and motored down the river with our SOG (Speed Over Ground) at 7.5 knots. There was about 1 knot of current to help us along so the engine got a little rest on this trip. We arrived at De Tour and were all tied up at 13:30 that afternoon. Just a nice leisurely 5 hour trip with some gray skies and some sunny ones.

We are now doing some boat clean up and fixing. Bill got the hardware in Sault Sainte Marie we needed in order to raise the US flag that Bill and Judy Rohde gave us as a Bon Voyage gift. I cleaned up inside and as I write this Seth is outside with the hose giving Eos a nice bath. She needs a great deal of cleaning on the outside but that will have to wait until we have a longer time to spend on sprucing her up.

And so we leave Lake Superior truly behind and head out into Lake Huron tomorrow.

Bill is a retired but hopefully will be again a fine artist who quit painting in 1991 to spend full-time finishing the hull and deck we had purchased. Now 18 years later he is ready to be co-captain as we we sail out the Great Lakes to become full-time cruisers. [...]
