These and all the regular spring commissioning chores we have to accomplish before we launch in June. We have been updating things like sails and batteries over the last 2 years and we aquired a 10' Walker Bay Genesis RIB cw a Tohatsu 9.9 4 stroke outboard so we will be leaving Nova Scotia with a relatively well equipped yacht. Debbie and I both realize our boat, a Mirage 32, is a bit on the small size, but 20 years ago she would have been considered a normal size to make this trip.
We have never tried a blog before so this is the start. This Blogging will require a bit of a learning curve. Will be updating you on our progress as I'm about to start working on the boat projects.
