UPDATE: – Ginny and I made a car trip to Annapolis Thursday to purchase a new secondary anchor and rode for Wind Dust. We were advised to check out Bacon Sails in Annapolis and boy we hit the jackpot. Bacon has just about everything cruising sailors need both new and used. We purchased a new Lewmar 66 lb claw anchor with 150 ft of chain along with several other needed items. We highly recommend checking these guys out before you spend the big bucks elsewhere. Anyway, we are now carrying four anchors, 400 ft of chain and 300 ft of rope rode.
While in Annapolis we went downtown to the water front, did a little shopping and had a nice lunch. What a beautiful town. Max Prop came in Friday so we should be in the water next week. Yeeehaaa! We are planning to move aboard next week and start the process of getting to know Wind Dust from the live aboard point of view. Once we get underway we plan on activating our SPOT to keep track of our progress and it will be added as a link to this page.
