Preparations, and Research

Time is ticking, only 45 days till we launch Sea Bella and head south from Morro Bay, Ca to Baja, Mx. The last few months have been all about preparations, crossing off the “to-do’s” and researching the final touches.

Scott replaced the rear manual head with an automatic push button toilet. I am happy about the ease of the button. He is also looking into understanding the new Victron battery monitors and using the phone app to give us feedback on utilization of power. All I know is that I had no Keurig coffee this morning, LOL. This crap is complicated!

He outfitted our new 10′ AB skiff with a Tohatsu 20hp outboard, rugged beach wheels, and dyneema davit mounting lines. I talked with cruisers in MX, they urged me to protect the rib. I got up early, quickly measured the rib and then purchased grey sunbrella material for dinghy chaps. I look forward to making them in Ensenada, while Sea Bella’s hauled out, getting her bottom painted.

I was happy with how my cockpit cushions came out, 4″ open cell foam with comfy batting. It took a few months of preparation, but I enjoyed the process. Thanks for reading the blog, let us know what your ideas are and stay tuned for the official Launch!!
