Today is the day we bring Foggy back home to Cobourg Marina! Weather forecast was good, warm, sunny and a little bit of wind from the South moving to the East in late afternoon.
Foggy has been launched! Probably the most prepared we’ve ever been but it involved a lot of trips back and forth and made a few mistakes along the way.
We currently use portable batteries for charging our phones but with solar being installed I wanted to have easier access to power. Here’s an easy project to add some USB power to the v-birth.
With Lori’s wacky schedule these days she got a day off while I had to work so she headed back to the boat to work on some projects.
Today it was all hands on deck. We convinced our kids to join us for the day to help knock off a bunch of tasks from our to do list.
Lori had to work and I wasn’t feeling all that great for some reason. I was suspicious of the empty bottle of Canadian Whiskey in our kitchen.
Looks like Foggy’s going in the water! Launch date June 29th! See you on the lake! And a real Thousand Island trip in late July! So excited!
With the current state of things, the boat might stay out of the water for the entire season. I’ve documented some background on what’s happening here with our current thoughts.
With a sad and heavy heart we had to recently say goodbye to my father-in-law, Frank Mosienko (aka Grumpy Gramps or Crankie Frankie). He passed away on January 18, 2020.
The final step in tucking in our CS34 sailboat in for the winter, a nice warm blanket. It took us two trips and made one discovery/mistake along the way.
This year felt much easier than last year, we now have the delusion of knowing what we are doing and we knew Wiggers would take good care of us.
It was that sad time of the year when we needed to take the boat out of the water. We left it late and were unsure what the weather would be for the sail to Wiggers for lift out.
We replaced our lost Bruce Anchor with a brand new 35lb Mantus anchor. We don’t want to lose a second anchor, so we decided to add a Mantus Anchor Mate to help secure our new anchor.
