Shortly after breakfast, a mackeral dinner was already in the works.

He didn't put up much of fight getting into the boat and once aboard, I super soaked his gills with vodka for a quick and painless 'crossing over'.

Here's what led up to dinner time:

We're planning to cruise for three months. I'm thinking about the 40+ hour nonstop sailing segments and my night watch. I'm planning on how I'll entertain my overactive, quick-to-lose interest brain.

I bought some books. Joel got some books. Parents gifted some books....

We like to eat. We love to eat good food. But we eat all foods.

Provisioning is almost my favorite part of planning an extended cruise, charter or even weekend getaway. I like planning meals: how many people, sides, proteins? How many fish will be catch, what sauce is...

Ahhh, I love Captain Ron quotes! And Steve Harvey's line is accurate as well: dawn comes early on a boat.

For the fair weather Pirate such as myself, fog is a couple things. It's super pretty when I'm at anchor or the safety of land, and it's super terrifying when I'm navigating.

About a month ago I took the photos in this post.

Firstly, they are their own little puzzle. At first glance they look impossible as you pull a twisted glob of metal and pedal out of a 2'x2' canvas bag. I mean, the engineering that went into planning how this thing (that will transport a grown man) could collapse into...

Now that it's complete, I have thoughts. We have thoughts. But I think an emoji here is worth words on how refurbishing a teak deck is explained: 😳

I'll leave all the technical 'how we did it', 'required tools and materials', and the 'step-by-step technical explanatio...

There's an old sang that goes "Cruising is working on your boat in exotic places". Well this is true. It's true, however; after you have spent countless hours (and more so, dollars) getting ready to leave the dock and get to said 'exotic places'.

So let's get up to spee...
