It’s been a while since we’ve posted to our blog. Life got busy and here we are…
We will catch you up with our adventures on the water over the past two years though if you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll be in the loop.
Basically Jim worked on getting the remaining leaks on 31′ Trimaran fixed. We launched her last August (2018) with fingers crossed and found that we still had a bit of water trickling in below the galley (midship, starboard side). Dang. We cruised her in the North Channel for four weeks regardless and had a blast.
We got her home (and believe me, there is more to this story!!) and plugged away at the remaining leaks until we put her to bed for the winter in a friend’s barn.
This past February we joined some friends on a bareboat charter in the British Virgin Islands. It was super to sail down there and we had a great time.
This past summer we spent five weeks aboard the 31 and as she was now a dry boat inside, we felt good having guests. My Mom joined us for 10 days and our buddy Mark was aboard after that for a week. Such fun.
As you can imagine, we didn’t use the 22′ Trimaran “Raise a Little Hull” as much. But Jim raced her at Fanshawe Yacht Club and we were pleased to take friends and family out for a sail here and there.
Now we are preparing to take the 31 to the Bahamas in February and March once I’m done teaching at the end of this semester! So stay tuned… I promise that much more is to come.
Cheers and Fair Winds for 2020!
