Update time – return from the dead

So it’s been a hot minute since I’ve written anything, and the main reason for that is that I

  • decided to try to sail across the Pacific again
  • because of the previous point, I had to do the stuff I did with Gudge over 4 years in a few months
  • so basically, it’s been none stop boat work.

The list included

  • redoing the entire standing rigging
  • replacing all the chainplates
  • new sails
  • electric windless
  • new ST winches
  • adding a lot of solar
  • getting an autopilot
  • changing the running rigging around
  • changing every single light on the mast
  • adding a wind instrument
  • replace engine mounts
  • replace drive plate
  • etc etc etc

Anyway, I’ve been incredibly busy for the last few months, and then I actually left Canada on the 30th August, came back due to the raw water pump spraying water everywhere, and then left again on 1st September. Currently in Eureka, CA.

I will write about the trip and maybe some of the maintenance I did in more detail, but most of the day to day stuff I am posting on my Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/sail_dive_fish/

My tracker is up and working again and can be accessed through the link called ‘Find Sooner‘ on the main page or going here https://share.garmin.com/MatthewParsons

More to come
