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).
