Yet Another SV Will Sea Work Trip

This adventure took place on 'Tuesday April 9th, 2024'

I'm back in Charleston for another couple of days of working on the boat and working on the app. There's been significant progress made on the app during the last week. That trend is continuing. For this test trip, I've once again made a significant round of changes which I expect will likely surface additional issues. Sadly, the same cannot be said for the boat. At the present rate it'll be June before it leaves Marine Propulsion ... so something is going to have to give.

Road Trip to Work On SV Will Sea

This adventure took place on 'Monday March 11th, 2024'

Wayne reached out and suggested he had time and was interested and willing to turn wrenches on Will Sea. Michael, the contractor managing the refit, had also suggested that I come down to inspect and manage things on site, so on Monday the 11th we're going to meet South of Charleston to spend Tuesday through Thursday working on the boat. Michael is going to teach us how to service the winches. We'll also be addressing some issues on the mast and generally inspecting and finding odds and ends to work on. It'll be good to see the boat on the hard with the mast off. We should learn a lot. But I tell you what, these long car drives are hardship for me. I don't understand why, but I really hurt after a few hours in a car.

SV Will Sea Delivery to Charleston

This adventure took place on 'Wednesday January 10th, 2024'

The sailing vessel Will Sea needs to be moved from Bucksport, SC along the Atlantic Intra-Coastal Waterway (ICW) to Charleston, SC where she will get some needed improvements before being sailed up to Annapolis in the spring. The challenge will be avoiding all the very shallows parts of the ICW. There's one swing bridge we will need to time correctly. Being very conservative we've decided to break this short trip into three sections. Day 1 we'll head from Bucksport, SC to Georgetown, SC where we'll grab a transient slip. The next day we'll do the longest leg from Georgetown, SC to Isle of Palms, SC. Then there's just a short stretch the next day to get to Charleston which should allow us to pass through the shallowest section at high tide with plenty of the depth to spare. The boat needs some prep work before Wayne and I attempt the voyage so I'm heading down a few days early to get things ship shape. I'll end up staying in Charleston for several days while I arrange to get estimates for all the various improvements I want to make to the boat. Between this nasty flu I've had and the distance, scheduling all of this has proven challenging. I'm interested to see what surprises wait for us.

Sun Odyssey 44 Survey South Carolina Car Trip

This adventure took place on 'Monday December 4th, 2023'

I am going to evaluate the first candidate sailboat in detail on Tuesday. I've scheduled an out of the water survey. Clearly buying a boat is a fools errand, but I am drawn to this task for reasons I do not fully understand. While I suspect to find show stoppers, I have to keep an open mind and not dismiss the opportunity out of hand.
