It only took us a few years to get back to the place that made us want to sail in the first place. We were so excited to be back! It’s beautiful.
It wasn’t a planned expense, but we are still running our original 30 year old sails that are still in decent shape but the sun damage has gotten to the point where they are just falling apart.
We continued our journey to the Thousand Islands. Today we learn what a “chicken jibe” is and hide out from the lightning next to the windmills.
Our plan is to take the outside route on Lake Ontario to get to Waupoos and anchor near Half Moon Bay. Our plan failed at the first step of waking up early.
Food has been provisioned, bags have been packed, the boat has been prepared (mostly). We head to the boat the night before to get settled in and prepare to leave early the next morning.
Finally, after several years of trying to get back to the Thousand Islands we are heading out today!
A fellow CS34 owner, Philip Maeise, has shared this information on repairing the base of his mast. Hopefully you will never need to do this, but it’s interesting to see the construction.
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!
