Getting Back to Boat Work (MJ Sailing – EP 46)
MONTHLY EXPENSE REPORT at the end of the episode.
With more rainy and overcast skies, coupled with fronts moving in, we leave our spot in picturesque Hope Town to hunker down in Marsh Harbour once more. We figure it’s a great time to tackle a few projects on the boat that we’ve been ignoring for awhile, but need to be handled.
Jessica goes to work patching our blown out headsail, which we noticed a tear in while sailing from Powell Cay to Green Turtle. The rip is in the leech of the sail just past where the new sacrificial cover was added, and needs to be repaired with some stitching and dacron tape.
Matt inspects the rigging and adds some tension to areas that need to be addressed. Once our projects are done and the weather lets back up, it’s off to Hope Town again, but this time under sail!!
Cheers from the Bahamas!
