[Captains Blog] Almost ready

We've been on the boat 2 days now and are getting to know some of the things that make life easy on board. There have been a few jobs that needed doing that 4 months on the hard standing have caused, but with these out of the way (barring unforseen issues that have yet to rear their ugly heads), we are ready to go sailing tomorrow. So, this morning I was fitting a new danbuoy and life saver horseshoe, mending the handle that drops the bathing platform down, changing the shackles on the same piece of boat, and wrapping the joints that might chafe against the jib. Sails fitted yesterday, provisioning this morning (ouch!).
