Preparations and provisioning to sail north

June 14, 2011
Hello friends!
We have been busy for the past 2 weeks dewinterizing the boat and having Second Wind "splashed" which means lifted from her cradle on land and carried in the sling of a travel lift and lowered into the water on Back Creek here in Annapolis, Md. Now you know why people cut things short by saying splashed!!

Our tasks have ranged from a thorough inspection of the engine and rigging to working with a technician to clear a gas line leading to one stove top burner to selecting and ordering a line cutter for a diver to install just forward of the prop in the event we snag a lobster trap this summer. Food supplies (ESP. Gluten free items) are being stowed in all the space available as some seaports will not have a grocery within walking distance.
We did take shakedown cruise to Oxford, attend a fun Beneteau Rendezvous with 60 other Beneteau owners.
We expect to shove off the dock this Sat. Morning with our first night at Still Pond where we will anchor for the night, and then continue north to the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal on Sunday.
More later.
Cindra And David
