On the Hard

It’s been way too long. We moved off the boat at the end of September last year, because we both went back to school. Living at anchor on a 27-foot boat and doing intensive academic degrees (and working!) is no easy trick. Especially since it started to rain and might not have let up until the spring.

We still have Tomahawk (in fact, I took a friend out yesterday for a lovely day of sailing). Most of our adventures have been of the maintenance kind. We hauled it out in June for a bottom job – DIY and we scraped it down pretty much to the gelcoat, since we didn’t know what kind of paint was on it. Now it looks shiny and moves a lot faster, although things are already starting to grow on it.

We may have to floss it soon… That’s using a piece of line to scrub the bottom from the deck, one person on either side, with a back-and-forth motion.

I’m getting ready to start my research, which is about cruisers (surprise, surprise). Jason has been working on the little water buses and we are both gearing up for a new semester at school.

The sailing season is coming to an end here, but we have lots of ideas for Tomahawk for next year. And hopefully we’ll still get a few nice days to enjoy the water this fall.
