My Adventure Story
This will be a boating adventure for Susan and me on our 1979 Albin 36 trawler. We have been planning, updating the boat and plan on leaving Deltaville 11-1-11 down the ICW to Miami and then Bimini in the Bahamas. Our ultimate destination in the Bahamas is Georgetown Great Exuma.
10-20-11 - Got my last haircut today until April 2012. That will save money. Today I bought two 5 gallon gas cans and two 5 gallon diesel cans. Already bought the two 7 gallon water cans. Also bought security cable and locks for the cans and outboard motor. Autopilot will be installed next Tuesday. Planning a short haul before we leave to clean the bottom. Headed to the boat tomorrow after a machine shop stop for some reinforcement for the new windlass.
10-21-1 at the boat after a stop at Royall machine shop to get a nice bracket to reinforce the samson post to bow sprit we are at the boat. Still trying to figure where we are going to put everything for our trip. I continued wiring the windlass. What a job trying to secure the wires in the chain locker so the will not get chaffed or snagged on the chain and line. Dinner late as we met with George & Doris who are heading out of Jackson creek tomorrow Hampton bound. We have many projects left and realize they will not all be done before we leave.
