The Fox and our buddy-boat, Kia Ora, raised anchor at Punta Pulpito for a very short 10-mile southbound voyage to the popular anchorages of Caleta San Juanico. Both vessels were underway just after 0700 on Sunday, November 27, 2016. The morning air was calm with skies overcast.
Arriving in San Juanico we found only two other sailboats there, each of which we recognized as having left San Carlos about 24 hours ahead of us. With plenty of choices, we chose to anchor in 21' depths.
Almost immediately I discovered that the bimini I had repaired during our last hurricane season ashore, no longer fitted its attachment points aft. Gah. So, while GB wisely stayed out of the canvasmaker's way doing household chores and outboard repairs, I spent the day sewing up my very last yard of Stamoid to jury-rig another modification. The following day the Frankenbimini was completed and deployed to satisfaction all around. I figured what the heck, I might as well repair the helm cover's broken stitching as long as I had my mighty Pfaff sewing machine up and running. I use my time wisely, dammit.
