I could paddle the dinghy with one oar near the trees, but out in the bay right under the katabatics falling down the cliff sides you're just at the mercy of the winds.
Yup, it is not a gentle area.

We are currently alongside at AFASyN in Ushuaia. I repaired the Lewmar engine linkage today with extra spares I laid-in the last time it failed. We are waiting for a reply from Lewmar on the reparability of the windlass, and looking at alternatives, which, as you know are very few down here.

Cheers,
Michael

Another thought just ocurred to me about Sequitur's travels. For liveaboard's, they truly are "living" aboard. Life adapts to the reality of being on a boat, but it doesn't abandon all sense of their standard of living.

Some seem to argue that one is illegitimate if they don't resign themselves to a primitive reliance on nature alone. I say, if you like the minimalist approach, more power to you. It is nice, and completely legitimate in my opinion, to see Sequitur and her crew travel comfortably.

Fair winds and we all look forward to hearing about the big crossing in the coming months.

Michael,

Your blog is absolutely wonderful! It obviously takes considerable time for you to write it and I heartily appreciate it.

I told my wife of your travels and then showed her the pictures of your well-prepared table. She is enrolled in our cruising once the kids leave. (We already live on our boat all summer.)

There's more. I went to a local Italian grocery store and bought provisions (fresh mozzeralla, tomatoes, olives and olive oil -- then 3 twist bread from a bakery). Then I prepared her a fantastic lunch, saying to her, "We might as well eat like we're cruising." In the fun of it, and the simplicity and great food, it was my favorite lunch ever.

So you are inspiring those of us who are still a few years away.

Amidst the efforts of your typing and picture juggling, please know you are creating gold. Had I the means, I'd fly down with new windlass parts for you.

Regards,
Brad
