Gorilla tape!

March 8, 2014

Today’s great accomplishments include: Steve getting the 12volt outlet working and verifying that the auto pilot is completely operational. I cleaned out the dock box and cockpit lazaret, and moved enough stuff around in the cabin to make three empty lockers for the crew that will help us move the boat to Santa Cruz.

Steve and I worked together duct taping, or rather Gorilla taping, the dodger. The old clear plastic was no longer clear. It was actually not possible to see through it at all. So we used Gorilla tape to temporarily put clear plastic in place. It looks really pathetic, but hey, if it holds until we get her home I win the MacGyver award. We still need a new dodger, but it will just have to wait.

I have been running some very loose observations about how much water we use onboard. As of now, without any conscious effort toward conservation and without showers onboard we use aprox 3.8 gal/day. We have two 36 gallon holding tanks so that will give us 20 days if nothing changes. We have a water maker and my mind churns about a freshwater catchment system. Just something else to think about.

Sundowners of rum punch and red wine. Carnitas for dinner. Life is GOOD!
