Skipmac - See? You already taught me something. I love charting and navigating with the crudest of traditional implements or, when in doubt, heading for the GPS
. But when it comes to a diesel engine
, I'm fraught with worry. Capt. Hubby is definately the one with a comfort zone when it comes to engines, but I may be a lost
cause. Our boat mechanic
is #3 on my speed dial and I generally describe the sound it's making - or not making, and typically suggest what I think it might be. I'm correct more often than not, but making repair on it will have to fall to Capt. Hubby. That kinda stinks because, if he's sick and wretching, I will not be able to hold my own with the engine
, 12 volt charing systems or the wiring
Carpentry? Check (Dad's a contractor, so I can fix about anything.)
Painting? Check - I'm the painter in our house.
? I can rig our Prindle in nothing flat and did fine with the boat last summer, but need more experience there.
? - Check. One of my passions.
Oh - and provisioning
- I'm particularly good at this! I LOVE it.
I'm trying to work on a budget
based on what I'm seeing on some other sites reflecting what people love on while cruising. I think we'll be okay there too.
More, please! I need to recognize what I'm NOT ready for! And I'd really like to get my Captain's license
. I'm still a novice
by most true sailors' standards!
Finally, we're suburbanites just north of Atlanta. You?
