I am putting Onapua up on the hard here at Green Cove Springs. I pulled all the sails off and wrapped her up with shade cloth so hopefully she will be well protected while I am gone.

As for the journey, it turned out, we had very little wind the entire way.

I wanted to describe my day to you just so that you could see that there is no such thing as a typical day for a livaboard cruiser. I never know what to expect after I wake up. After 40 odd years of predictable suburban life, it takes some getting used to. So I emerge out of my companionway this morning with my cup of Joe and a list of boat chores and get introduced to this noisy Walkera QR X350 GPS Quadcopter.

Tomorrow the wind is favorable for a couple of days before it clocks around to the south again so I plan to take advantage of the northerly wind while I can. Tropical storm Fay near Bermuda is giving me winds that my westsail boat loves to sail in but whether or not I can live with them is another matter.

The transmission guy put my new transmission in today but my alignment is so bad that we may have to drill new holes in the liner. It may be next week before it is fixed.

Here I sit in Wrightsville beach waiting for my transmission to be fixed. A new one is available but at least 60 days away, so that is not an option. Josh Roberts from Specialized Mechanical is helping me fix it.
