Just a quick post to share that we are back on Morgan’s Cloud and off on a cruise to our beloved Newfoundland. So we may be a bit erratic with posting and commenting over the next two months or so.
Also, what we do publish will tend to be more about the places we visit and the experiences we have than technical in nature.
Having said that, those of you who are more interested in technical posts should have no fear since we are taking notes, making photographs, and even shooting some video, as the basis of lots more technical posts that will start to roll out in the fall.
In the meantime, don’t forget that there are over 900 posts, most of them technical, in our archive (see the top menu) and 29 Online Books to keep you busy.
Also, I have the long awaited Adventure 40 progress post all done and we will publish it soon. And we will be publishing the next chapter on power trains soon, this one clearly explaining the complex world of propellers in the way that only Matt can.
To kick off the cruising focus, here are a few photos from our cruise so far to remind us what the end goal of all the technical stuff is. (Click on photos to enlarge).
Let’s start off with Maskells Harbour, Bras d’Or Lakes, Nova Scotia, surely one of the world’s great cruising anchorages.
That is until the neighbourhood went to hell.
Just to clarify, the above cheap shot had nothing to do with it being a motorboat (we have nothing against them and might even own one someday), but everything to do with the damned thing’s size and the extreme wealth inequality it represents.
Never mind, 150-foot super-yachts won’t find us here.
