I have been planning to sail to a Penang over Christmas. But I have been waiting for boat parts that were scheduled to be here two days ago. Customs is holding them up for some reason. And of course closing for Christmas. The good news is I cleaned the threads on the maxi-prop so I can put the New anode on.Fair winds and following seas 😉
When I joined the “Wonderful Sail 2 Indonesia” I thought it would be fun to keep track of the other participants. I upgraded my Marine Traffic account and added all the boats. It turned out to be a bust as there are almost no Internet linked AIS receivers in Indonesia. But wait, there s more. Near the end of the three month rally I was sitting with the Government representative. I casually said: “I wonder where boat x is?” He opened his phone, scrolled down, and told me. He knew, and known, where every boat in the rally was every day. Don t ever think that you are incognito.

A little video to demonstrate the roll that leads to sail “snap” in light air. And yes, in tbis video Reboot is pointed upwind. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
In the days of sail there was a time set aside for the sailors to mend their clothing, relax and chat. Sailors also made their own clothing. This was a opportunity to deal with their personal needs. On Reboot it is also a time to go over all the sheets and halyards to check for chafe. Today was a rope yarn day.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
