We didn’t know it then — sailing into the sunset across the Gulf of Mexico — but this would be our last journey aboard our beloved Tartan 37.
This is it! We’re off to The Bahamas…or so we plan. After last minute provisioning, we leave Marathon and set sail to cross the Gulf Stream. Even though we’re making good time, beating to windward takes its toll, and we decide to call an audible.
After a month in Marathon, we’re nearly finished with our DIY bimini. With just a few more finishing touches, including modifications for the backstay, the radar pole, and the solar panels, we’ll be ready to take off to The Bahamas.
If you think we have this whole life thing figured out, don’t let us fool you! We constantly feel like we’re never getting enough done, that we’re falling behind, and that life is moving too quickly. Anyone else feel like it’s a struggle to find balance in life?
After spending as much time in boatyards as we have, it might make you wonder: Is it all worth it? In this episode, we set off on our first overnighter of the season.
