Fuel Tanks: Three Down One To Go

By Rich

Today we skipped what would have been great sailing weather to focus on getting the starboard forward tank cleaned out and its fuel lines replaced. Not ideal to give up a day of sailing but we need to get through our P1 projects before time runs out to get south! This tank had some of the worst debris and as it happens was the tank we were running off of when we killed the generator lift pump coming up from Charleston. Before and after photos:

More Sea Trialing

By Rich

One of our mandates for the fall before we head south to Lauderdale is to test the boat in any challenging conditions we can to find any leaks or other weaknesses. Last Saturday we had around 20 knots from the south, so Brian and I went out for some double handing. We found a leak or two and confirmed we need to tune the rig. Plus we had a blast!
