Getting Back to Boat Work

MONTHLY EXPENSE REPORT at the end of the episode.

With more rainy and overcast skies, coupled with fronts moving in, we leave our spot in picturesque Hope Town to hunker down in Marsh Harbour once more. We figure it’s a great time to tackle a few projects on the boat that we’ve been ignoring for awhile, but need to be handled.

Jessica goes to work patching our blown out headsail, which we noticed a tear in while sailing from Powell Cay to Green Turtle. The rip is in the leech of the sail just past where the new sacrificial cover was added, and needs to be repaired with some stitching and dacron tape.

Matt inspects the rigging and adds some tension to areas that need to be addressed. Once our projects are done and the weather lets back up, it’s off to Hope Town again, but this time under sail!!

Cheers from the Bahamas!

The Wreck of sv Ellipsis at Elbow Cay

GIVEAWAY WITH ABACO POLARIZED SUNGLASSES!! Details below.

We leave Marsh Harbor for the picturesque settlement of Hope Town, and have a whirlwind adventure while we’re there. Heading into town one night to play trivia with friends, we find there is a shipwreck on the north end of the island, and stroll up the beach to take a look.

Lodged in the sand is a Westsail 32 named Ellipsis that had ended up there the night before after encountering some heavy weather between Puerto Rico and St. Augustine. We only had a few details at the time, but knew it was two men and two dogs on board, and although the boat was now meant to be salvaged, everyone on board was ok.

The next day the two of us do a little more wandering around town and take a look at the world famous Elbow Reef Lighthouse; the last kerosene burning lighthouse in the world. We also walk through the grounds of Harbour Lodge resort to take in stunning views from their Atlantic coast beach.

Strolling back out to the beach, we found the owner there removing personal belongings and were able to talk to him to get the full story of what happened.
