So at least the critical boat projects that are keeping us at the dock are done. And although we don’t mind being at the dock, we’d like to go out and anchor for a few days to make sure all our systems are working… and we’ve been watching a weather window all week. We’d really like several nights, maybe a week? with winds 10-15. But….
The weather isn’t cooperating, so now we’re down to watching 3 days squeezed between cold fronts. Hoping for winds to lay below 30 — tonight’s is predicted gusts to 30 and it’s honking! – for Sunday afternoon through Wednesday mid-day. Sunday night’s forecast keeps creeping up, now at 25+ and been climbing all day. So keep your fingers crossed. .Windfinder Boca Grande
We have a few last minute things to do to get ready … get gas for the dinghy; leave the canvas projects for the canvas company; fill the water tanks; put the dinghy back on the foredeck and … oh yeah, we need RAISIN BRAN … or we won’t have breakfast, so a quick trip to town.
But we’re not going to anchor out subjecting ourselves to 30+ winds — been there, done that, no reason to do it just for fun on a first time out this winter — so keep your fingers crossed Sunday nights winds don’t increase more ….
