About Us

Welcome to our blog, describing our voyage aboard Bravo, a Kelly Peterson 46 sailboat with homeport in Seattle, Washington. We headed south in 2010, destined for Mexico and beyond. Cheers, Adam and Cindi

A successful Costco run completed!

Well, we made a major provisioning run a couple of days ago.  A couple of carts at Costco, and we should have much of the vittles for 4 folks for 4 weeks purchased.  Now to figure out where it will all go!!  (as well as all the spare parts, tools, line, pumps, and on and on.  Bravo's waterline is threatening to dip below if gravity doesn't relax it's grip!!

Actually, here's Cindi at Costco w/ cart 1...  The great thing about Costco is no one blinks an eye at $700 grocery bills...From the look of the regulars, this would be about a weeks worth!!!

Back at Bravo, we've been getting busy, scratch that, it's getting a bit frantic...stashing stuff in nooks and crannies that we never knew existed, all the while inventorying what goes into each numbered nook.  Yeah, we'll see how long things remain in place....

One great gizmo that we've been using a lot has been the vacuum bagger.  Perfect for shrinking a roll of paper towels into a roll smaller than TP, or close to it, as well as waterproofing spare electronics, filters, and other critical parts.

Finished up installing the track for the storm trisail today, drilling and tapping over 140 screws on the mast to support the rascal.  (We REALLY wouldn't that to go on walkabout when we need it most).  Nice views from this corner office!!!
