Review: Anchor Alarm Software

If the thought of silently dragging into something hard in the middle of the night while you are sleeping peacefully scares you, read on!

Last Sail of the Season

It was time to move our boat to Loyalist Cove Marina in Bath, Ontario, for her new haul out location. We made it into a mini-vacation spread over three days. And the weather cooperated with us!

Honda 2.3 Outboard Oil Change

Seemed simple, but made mistakes and learned a few tricks along the way.

Finishing Up Our Solar Install

We had most of the solar equipment for our boat selected and purchased. But we were stuck on the most difficult part, how to mount the solar panels on our boat.

We have a fan!

On our last sail of the season we had another sailboat recognize us. We felt like superstars!

Our New Place to Anchor

One of our issues with keeping our boat in Cobourg is that you are on open water (Lake Ontario) and there’s no close place to anchor overnight. We recently discovered a spot close by.

Best Way to Make Coffee on the Boat

I’m a coffee drinker, it’s part of my routine and I enjoy sitting down with a good cup of coffee to start my day. I have found a simple and quick way to make coffee on the boat.

Our new sails have arrived!

Look what the courier just dropped off at our doorstep! We are so excited!

A Vlogger Posted Our Boat!

This is kind of exciting, a vlogger that I follow posted a video about Macgregor Sailboats and I saw a picture of our boat in it. Video above will start about 5 minutes in where you will see our ...

Heading home through Murray Canal

We survived the storm in Belleville and now complete our journey, mostly motoring, back home to Cobourg through the Murray Canal.

Hiding from the storm in Belleville

We continued our journey home from the Thousand Islands, leaving Picton and heading towards the Murray Canal. We know there’s a good chance of a wind storm but we go anyways.

Lake of Bays Brewery – Foghorn

We stumbled across this beer called “Foghorn” in the liquor store and had to try it out!

Little Bluff Park and Lost in the Dark

We find out why anchoring at Halfmoon Bay was difficult and then spend the day at Little Bluff Conservation Area. That afternoon we head home via the more protected northern route, Adolphus Reach.

Waupoos Estates Winery

Today we get to feel all posh by anchoring our sailboat out in front of a winery and taking our inflatable to shore to meet up with some friends.

I’m no longer allowed to make judgment calls about weather

I am here to publicly admit, I was wrong, Lori was right. As you can see from the picture above, I was overly optimistic that the storm we were heading towards would blow on by before we got there.

Windless Wednesday

Just a random post of my favourite video from last year, when we could race. I really like the timing of the VHF announcement in this video. Wednesday was race night on Lake Ontario, near Cobour...

On our own in the Thousand Islands

All of our kids are gone and we are now alone, drifting on our boat in the Thousand Islands. How are we going to get along?

Sailboat Haul Out Plan for 2020

Every year there’s always something that makes our plans more complex than they need to be. This year, we are changing our haul out location.

Sail Designs from Precision Sails

We just received the designs back from Precision Sails. We are super excited but have no idea what to look for in these sail designs. What do you think?

Anchored at Sugar Island

This is one of our favourite spots to anchor, mostly because of the lovely people that were there the first time we tried to anchor. This time the island was empty due to COVID but it was great to be… Continue Reading →
