Well boys and girls, the time is nigh.
The bank account is ready, a manager has been found for the houses, the kitty is sufficiently fat, and Harbinger tugs increasingly hard at her mornings every day. There is still some things that need done, standing rigging
, some bottom work
and the like, but after 10 years of ownership
and 5 of living aboard
, refiting, and saving, there is only a maintenance
cycle (and a winter) between me and casting off for parts
Literally unknown lol, I don't have a planned destination
, just a direction, north (from where I am now) until after hurricane
season, then south chasing the warm, possibly Bahamas
, not sure, after that even less sure lol.
But for now, I sit here watching the flames in the heater
, coffee (sans brandy, too early for that yet) in hand looking through charts
, and reading through cruising guides
And when I do get out there, if anyone sees me feel free to give a rap on the hull
, the coffee is good (with or without a northerly twist) and visitors are always welcome.
In the meantime looking forward to seeing a location on the plotter other than the one shown lol, it gets cold here lol.
I would also like to thank everyone, here and other wise, who have helped me to get to this point.
