26 Oct [Ep. 10] Play Time is Over – Boat Show and Boat Work in Annapolis
0:24 Sailing from NYC to Annapolis via C&D Canal We leave NYC and head to Annapolis Maryland. We sail in the Atlantic ocean off the coast of New Jersey. We duck into Cape May and motor through the C&D canal. Afterward, we anchor overnight.
5:00 Welcome to Annapolis We arrive in Annapolis to lots of boats and kiteboarders. We visit relatives and check out cool new catamarans and monohulls during the Annapolis Sailboat Show in October. We enjoyed the boat show, picking up some much needed (and not so needed) items at great show deal prices. We purchase a life raft, paddleboards, and some more safety gear.
6:33 Goodbye Family After the boat show, our family left with our last big possession, Curtis’ car. We sold it to his parents as we wouldn’t be needing it for a long time.
9:24 Haulout at Jabins We decided to make an un-planned haul out and do some boat projects at Bert Jabin Boat Yard. Initially, we wanted to do this boat work in North Carolina or Florida, before proceeding on to the Bahamas, but Jabin’s is a top-notch yard with some of the best in the industry. We knew we would have access to the resources to complete the projects we wanted and they had space they could fit us into.
11:32 Boat Work We re-wire and optimize the electrical system for LifePO4 batteries, moving the battery bank to a centralized location. We do some bottom work and paint touch up. We install a line cutter on the propeller. Check the rudder quadrant, install new rudder bearings, and refurbish the autopilot. We pull the mast to install an inner forestay for a cutter rig staysail option. We also take care of many small projects like marking the anchor chain, etc. There are lots of trips to West Marine. Most notably we met some amazing people and new friends in Annapolis. We loved it there!!! Thanks to everyone we met and who helped us!!!!
