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

Cindi is Radio-Active!!!

Here's another trick question:

What do the following 2 images have in common???

Answer:  They're both HAPPY HAMSTERS!!!

Cindi's been hard at work studying for her ham radio exam(s) for the past few days.  Yesterday she successfully passed the Technician and General class exams, so she's joined Adam in achieving the exalted status of Geek !!!!!  Who'd a thunk it???!!!

Meanwhile, boat work continues...removed, and rebedded 4 more porthole lights over the past couple of days.  The heat of the summer in the Sea of Cortez has dried out much of the caulking, creating leaks where none existed up in the Pacific NW.  And rumor has it that it rains now and then in Central America!!!   Today will start to rebuild the watermaker with a new membrane and pressure tube.
