Pre-Catalina Island prep

June 11, 2020 in Passage planning - 2 Comments

We have six weeks before we shove off. This will be our first overnight trip on Felicità. Just a few things to do:

  • Service Yanmar and the generator diesel
  • Fix fridge (this could be expensive!)
  • Install jacklines on deck and in the cockpit
  • Order and install EPERB
  • Outfit ditch bag
  • Take Ocho out for a sail to see if he has sea legs
  • Confirm we have charts

    EPERB? I guess I’m going to have to learn a new language following you two.

      Ha ha! And, as I look at this I realize I spelled it wrong. Should be EPIRB. It’s an emergency position indicating radio beacon and if it’s going off, it means we’re in the water (rather than being on the boat…not good).

    Brava @travelswithtadji — almost as good as when you make it! #galley #sailing
    Tim is hard at work on @travelswithtadji ‘s Roquefort Chicken. #sailing #sail #sailingcouple #catalina42 #offshoresailing #vitaminsea #yacht #yachting #bluewatersailing #offshore #oceanlife #saltyvibes #sailingadventure #gntsailing #boatlife #sailinglife #sailinginstagram #sailstagram
    @johnkretschmersailing is a cover boy. Great shot by @vizamedia and a fun fact is that Tim was on board Quetzal on the day this drone shot was taken. 😎
    “Tilly” our @hydrovane (named by Tim, despite the fact that I won our March madness bet), has arrived! Installation is slated for April 19. 💨 here’s the deal... Tim is 👏 the 👏 best 👏 namer of ALL the things. 🔹 Here’s the story... In our family, there is a long standing joke that if there is a chore you don’t want to do, you say, “Tilly will do it.” Or “We’ll get Tilly to do it.” 🔹 So, the same will go for steering the boat. “Tilly will do it.” And, of course, the double meaning that she’ll be the auto tiller. 🔹 Well done, Tim! I love you and all the goodness you bring to our sailing life. 🔹 #sailing #sail #sailingcouple #catalina42 #offshoresailing #vitaminsea #yacht #yachting #bluewatersailing #offshore #oceanlife #saltyvibes #sailingadventure #gntsailing #boatlife #sailinglife #sailinginstagram # #hydrovane #autosteering #mechanicalengineering
    Easter brunch on board. The best poached eggs Tim has ever made. 🐣#sailing #boatlife #galley #poachedeggs
    Whelp. I’m still winning but there is a mathematical chance for Tim to win if Gonzaga loses this game. 🏀🤞 #gozags
