I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

December 10, 2019

It’s time to head home.   Home Free is getting prepped by the good folks at YachtTech for some time in the Bahamas after Christmas and Andrew and I will head home tomorrow.

While we are away we are getting the engine on the dinghy engine fixed, that shaft over heating problem looked at and a new VHF radio installed among other things.   All these items will ensure that our trip to the Bahamas is not fouled by ‘obvious’ issues.

I have enjoyed my time in the Med, but I am very much looking forward to an experienced Nordhavn specialist taking control of my boat for a couple of weeks and performing the maintenance.   I will be very relaxed over Christmas knowing that Home Free is in good hands.

Today, I did purchase a trolling rod for the trip across the Gulf Stream.   I’m not sure how much I want to clean fish, but I would like to see what it is like to hook into a 40-50 lb fish.   The guy guiding me on equipment made sure I got a gaff to bring a fish in, it is 5 feet down to the water from the back rail.   I will be reading internet posts over Christmas on how to clean a Mahi-Mahi, just in case.

Tomorrow, back to the cold!
