Be Prepared

Boy scout salute!  We are prepared (well, mostly.)  So prepared that we were going to leave tomorrow, but have postponed it a few days because of the weather and now we are sittin' around with nothing to do...  (Okay, I lie again.)

We have worked our way through the primary to-do list and are now on to secondary boat jobs, those of the "nice-to-have-but-not-necessary" quality, including sewing cushion covers and making mosquito netting.

In the photos below, you will see the rain through the windshield of the boat (we were on the mooring, but we've been getting some heavy rain in the afternoons here). The second picture shows the inside of the boat's electrical panel, as the Captain was re-wiring. The other pictures are our solar panels, which are now rear-mounted instead of on the side rails of the boat, and the dry goods provisioning shopping trip, which nearly broke the bank, but means we will have food for months and months before we need to buy another can of food.

Watch the top of the blog as we will have a couple of links to maps of our trip that track us along the way.
