Mattina: Testing Her Systems

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.
