Mattina: Testing Her Systems November 14, 2012 ~ Kristina Stanley The first week underway after leaving the boat on the hard for the summer is a bit hectic. After making sure all our sails and engine were in working order, we sailed, motor sailed and ran on the engines alone. Taken in fall of 2010, but the mooring field looks exactly the same. Someone had to go up here! We traveled from St. Augustine, Florida to Vero Beach, Florida. While travelling, we docked, anchored and moored. Above, we are on a mooring ball at Vero. Now we are running our power off the genset and the solar panels. We like to test these systems before we go offshore and while we still have easy access to parts. Thanks for reading . . .

What a beautiful boat! Farley is a lucky dog. Momma Jean said she would like to live on a large house boat part of the time and a motor home visiting our friends. But we aren’t ready to give up doing doggy daycare at our home. We have 12 acres in PA. I’m not sure I could give up these wide open spaces. Maybe when I am an old puppy.
12 acres sounds great. Farley ran on 15 acres this summer on the outskirts of Winnipeg Manitoba. he loved the freedom. Nothing like running free in a field.
Good thinking to test the systems before heading out. Nice pictures, too. I’ll bet your heart skips a beat or two with Matt up there in the rigging like that!
I like it better when I go up the mast, but I guess I have to let him climb it too. Great view from up there.
