This is a story about a Boat
and its owners.
4 years ago I found the boat
( 1979 Morgain 33' O.I ) I belive I paid a nice price
$9,000 at the time new sails
and the drive tran worked.
4 years later I have made the following upgrades:
16,000 BTU A/C Heat
6,500 Watt Genset
Rewired the boat Both A/C ( now 50 amp service) and DC
(A/C, DC and 4 way sourse switch)
bank 6volt over 1,000 amp hours
All fresh water
3 sets of sails
Alum. Toe rail
I may have left a few things off but I am sure you see the point.
I believe it is now time to Take the Dutch for a trip.
The Great Loop
We plan to depart Jacksonville
FL with in 2 weeks and jump off shore come in about every 3 days or so and then back out. I would like to make it to St louis by winter, store the Boat in Alton ill for the winter and finnish the trip the next season.
For a disabled person doing most of the work
it has been very hard on me But some how I have been able to do it.
I am sure I will learn so much while on the trip.
well I will write more later
