Stuff from SPARTINA, and some new stuff, seems to have taken over the room over the garage. I needed to clean the boat out for winter maintenance.
There is some new gear in the mix, above the Watershed Drybags, that I been packing and repacking to see what fits best where. You also see some food supplies at the top right - Rx bars, cans of tuna, ginger chews and Tanka bars - that I am using as I try to come up with the most efficient way - both for space and access - to pack and stow.
There is a new boom tent storage bag from the nice ladies at Little Bay Canvas, plus various lines for docking, reefing and whatever. I want to figure out what I need and don't need.
In the meantime I am working on SPARTINA. Last week was sanding. This week a little more sanding and the epoxy work. And if the weather is as warm as forecast later this week maybe I'll do some varnish work too. Then more varnish and painting next week.
I want to get it all done by the end of January, which should be very possible, so I can get in the Mango drysuit and do some winter sailing on the Pasquotank River.
Is it just me, or does it feel like we are back in a lock down these days? Maybe just survival mode kicking in.
