Well, the watermaker isn’t fixed, the old reliable honda generator that saved our tail last year won’t start, and my outboard died on me yesterday. But it’s Easter and I still have 11 days before Marge gets here to have everything in perfect working order. Surely that means I need to take a day off from boat projects…right?
I went searching for blogs of other puddle jumpers on their way here this year and managed to locate a few. I found a good number of them on the FLEET list.
La Palapa – a couple of characters, look to be a bit younger, blogging from sea
S/V Blue Dawn of Sark – on their 2nd circumnavigation on a big ass boat, already in the Marquesas
s/v Zen – family cruising catamaran – also in the Marquesas already…nice looking family from Newport
Allan and Rina’s 2009 Sailing Adventure – blogging from sea. you gotta love entries titled “hot and shitty continued…day 21”
The Adventures of Amikuk – left Mexico in mid March, assuming we’ll hear something from them soon
Romany Star – looks like they’re almost to the Marquesas!
Nemesis – can’t quite tell whether they’ve left the Galapagos yet
wasabionoyster.com – i think these guys are still in the Galapagos but it’s hard to tell
The Hynes Honeymoon! – another actual young couple out cruising! looks like there half way across. he actually writes informative stuff…maybe i should take a lesson
Alright…back to work on the site. I plan on finishing the Boat Systems Report Card today and actually sitting down to write my About Me. Then I will officially be done with this site and can move onto video editing!
