Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Jon and I got the spinnaker halyards, main halyard, and new mainsheet run on Monday. In the rain. We got the updated punch list from the contractor regarding progress on a bunch of stuff: water heater, cockpit sole, engine room/plumbing/wiring, lazarettes, bilge pump, manual bilge pump, inverter/charter, batteries, raw water intake, exhaust elbow and hose, fuel tank, LPG, bladder tanks, forward head, deck hatches, companionway hatch, steering cable, anchor, transom panels, chainplates, halyards (they are going to run the starboard jib halyard since that's the messenger line we screwed up), check running backs, new tricolor, install steaming light, new lifelines are in, stanchions to be tightened... and they started to install the mast boot that I thought I was going to do - but with all the rain, they probably couldn't wait for me.
I still have to run the port jib halyard (connected to the roller furling jib at the moment). The artist (Cindy Fletcher-Holden) will be painting our transom panels with Kaimana's name and city/state later this week. Engine work could start tomorrow. Chesapeake Sailmakers picked up our main and we should have it back Saturday morning.
We have a couple friends who can come crew for us this weekend, assuming everything gets done in time.
Will this be the weekend we get to finally sail our boat to our new home port? Will the weather give us a break? Will we figure out the dance of the cars? Will I sadly leave the kids home for this first big trip? Will the BlueChart G2 Vision card arrive in time or will the GPS insist on taking us overland again? Will the mud subside in the Bay? Will I get more lines ordered in time?
