South from Puerto Montt to Puerto William

We received our zarpe this afternoon, and we are leaving to head south through Patagonia tomorrow morning. Our new blog post details the past week and a half of scrambling to get ready to continue our voyage.

Cheers,
Michael

Seq - you are the Moitessier of cruising....just with MUCH better cuisine...and joie de vivre.

My hand is over my heart, and my hat is off to you and Edi.

Crikey Smack, I hope he treats his women a bit better than old BM.

I have to say that around here yon Sequitur blog is a popular read. Tarragon chook is a firm favourite on the Womboat as are Frittatas but help me out here ... what are Cimini mushrooms ?

We are thinking seriously of adding mast steps to the Womboat. The old girl had them and I found them well worth it. Michael, I notice Sequitur has the folding plastic type. Are you happy with them ? any concerns re UV degredation ?

Michael... great blog, always nice to track your progress and your amazing venture.

You mentioned VOLO... red hull? Custom job? We may have seen her in Mexico a couple of years back.

Criminis are often called "brown mushrooms" or "mini portobellos". They are dramatically more flavourful and longer lasting than the common white "champignon de Paris".

The steps are a nylon-fibreglass composition, and are sold as highly sun-resistant. We are delighted with them.

Cheers,
Michael

Yes, Volo is a red-hulled custom-built Australian boat. Max and Sandy left Puerto Mont the afternoon before we did.
